Do you feel that you are betraying your own faction by playing the opposite faction?

I've always kinda pondered this...from an RP standpoint, i tend to always take one side. I guess the effect is lessened if you roll opposite factions on different servers.

"Hey Luke, thanks for coming after me. Now I owe you one."
"Wedge! Pull out! You're not doing any good back there!"
"And I thought they smelled bad on the outside!

I'm a big fan of the Sith, so I do feel a little weird playing Republic. I didn't think it would impact my RP at first, and then I looked at the Republic characters I'd come up with and realized they were much more evil and crazy than any of my Imperials.

I am a Sith fan too, but every tom dick and harry will role a sith inquisitor or Sith warrior I decided to go with the republic.

From a RP standpoint, all my characters are different, with different backgrounds, differents goals and personnalities. Why would they feel bad that the dude creating them also creates characters on the other side (and that's assuming we break the fourth wall and they know they're being created out of pixels and binary code)?
Did you mean that *you* feel bad because *you* feel that you belong to a fictional faction set in a galaxy far, far away? _

In either case I feel that's a weird question.

I dont think there is any problem with playing both factions, if you RP each character seperately then it should be fine.

They'll be part of the same legacy though.

Let's say, like Anakin and Luke.

Because I plan on most of my characters being Imperial, running the Esseles and attacking poor Imperials just doing their job on their ship made me feel a little guilty.
