I'M CONFUSED!
The Republic becomes the Galactic Empire. It makes sense.

I was just mocking the OP.

I mean, it makes complete sense that if a faction is in power, they would control Coruscant and you'd not likely see anybody from the other faction.

I'm just jealous that the 'pubs get such a large capital city to play in. Anyone know how large Kaas City is canonically? Is it smaller or larger than most Earth cities?

I wouldn't get too jealous, Coruscant is pretty generic and on the whole pretty underwhelming. Whoever said that it was a less neony version of Nar Shadaa had it spot on.

Personally I liked Dromund Kaas a lot more, felt more atmospheric and imposing as a capital planet. And its always naturally going to be smaller - Coruscant has been the hub of the universe for centuries, whereas Dromund Kaas was simply an emergency makeshift home for the new Sith Empire - a faction smaller and less populous than the Republic.

I literally have no idea why the Bounty Hunter is tied to the Empire. There should have been three factions, with 3 classes each imo. I'm playing through the bounty hunter story and my character keeps getting jobs to pretty much win worlds and kill Republic for the Empire. That is the job for a trooper class, not a bounty hunter. I have no incentive to help the Empire any more or less than the Republic and it kinda irks me that I am shoe-horned into such a close relationship with only one faction.

Except they are there! Crawling all over the Jedi Temple ruins and I think a few other places. Republic Security is atrocious, you'd think the Senate could spring for a few motion detectors and a brinks phone call security system to watch that stuff.

Dromund Kaas has great lore. Be happy.
