Not sure how this thread got off topic. Originally it was about how empire players treat a light sided Sith - whom they all believe SHOULD be dark. "Go play republic if you want to be light" kind of thing. Also on the fact that the hate and abuse you get from the players themselves, fits right into a light sided Sith's story.
During my SW playthrough, most of my LS choices were seen as good tactics by other Sith Lords and Imperial military commanders. They saw the benefits of interrogating prisoners instead of killing them, or trading them for Imperial POWs. Even Baras praised my resourcefulness and saw the logic in my decisions. Of course, he just thought I was being extremely devious, since that's how his mind works.
