A real tragedy, as he isn't am omnicidal nutcase like the Emperor. He has a better grasp of tactics than "we have reserves." He's not some racist fool, and is smart enough to extend an offer of participation to species other than Sith Pureblood and humans. He's got a marginal sense of honor, and he's actually more interested in making the Empire function than playing the mutually assured destruction garbage than the Dark Council seem to be caught in.

Overall, I haven't rolled an Inquisitor yet (and maybe never will, judging from how little I like the Imperial side in general), but I already think an Inquisitor character of mine will die on that station defending his lord.

The thing is after the malgus event Darth Marr Kinda took up malgus's flag with trying to get more aliens into the empire. As malgus said even if he lives or dies the empire is going to change and currently going by lore and the books out now it is.

Personally I think the reason they did not add the option to join him is because it would render our whole story moot if you think about it. I mean you built up all your power/fame and then you join the traitor and end up fighting the whole empire. Plus lets not forget maglus said those who wish to give up their old titles and all their other stuff is free to join him.

Story wise you would never be allowed to the space dock and all the other planets.

This is clarified further in that a Nautolan is promoted to Colonel and given the responsibility to reclaim Denova.

Bioware could have had Satele randomly break in and we "Prove ourselves loyal" to Malgus by slaying her, or something like that.

That way we still have a boss, and the roleplay would make more sense.

The worst things in role playing games is when you are controlling YOUR character, not some pre-characterised dude like Cloud or something. This is YOUR guy being projected, So when there is an option that DOESN'T EVEN GET ACKNOWLEDGED (Like maybe a line "I will gladly serve you" then malgus just kind of quips "Far too late for that" then it would be okay. But to blatantly ignore a really good story point is, in my opinion a waste.

I would have loved joining Malgusīs empire, when I did the Ilum quest line I got really sad because I couldnīt join him.
Maybe in the future Darth Malgus return (event) in secret and you can help him

No matter what Malgus believed in, turning against the Empire was a mistake. Imperials need unity, not to fight each other because some minor ideological differences. Allegiance to the dark side is what matters. And he threw it away because of bunch of aliens, got himself killed and weakened the rest of Empire. There's nothing to praise him for.

Yes, i hate that tease. At first i assumed it was a clever hint at something larger, but then i quickly realized it was a stupid attempt to make Malgus seem deceptive towards the group.

It would be nice if there could be a story arc somewhere longer down the line.

In example; The Empire is struggling quite heavily again (Similar to their desperate state during the Makeb storyline) and they need a gigantic miracle to turn the tide.

Malgus comes out of (obviously somehow explained) hiding and pulls the Empire out of desperation and back into the battlefields, with the help of his loyal alien allies.

This act of somewhat blind heroism would be Malgus' final attempt to open the Empire's eyes before they doom themselves permanently.

Because of how he showed the value and power of certain alien alliances, the Empire accepts him back under certain terms and requirements, along with his newly built alien armies.

Then the two finally fuse back together into one, stronger and unified Empire.

It sounds a bit too heroic for the Sith, i know. But it's the only acceptable solution i could think of that didn't involve just forcing down a "New Empire" faction out of nowhere.

This way, we'd see smaller and bigger changes on the Fleet, uniform and future stories that indicate that substantial change did indeed happen within the Empire.
I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly.

It's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're gonna do something incredibly stupid.
