Point in case, BioWare had an excellent chance to move the story in that direction, since it is *their* story to tell. That they didn't should tell you all about where they intend to take said story.
Emotion, yet peace. Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity. Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

I've not dealt with Malgus much myself, but isn't his highest ambition to plunge the galaxy into perpetual warfare?

And his goal genius and glorious, because eternal war would continuously cull the weak from the strong, you get no more of these weakling Sith given strong positions just for having survived Korriban, and no more manipulators who can avoid there demise through bargains and allies. Only the truly strong would survive, only those that have the martial strength or force power to be truly be Sith.

Also I think Malgus sees the true nature to the Darkside and it's flaw. The Darkside is a force of Destruction, and it only works for that purpose. War is Destruction, as along as the Sith are at war they can rely on the Darkside 100% to work for their purposes, it wont turn on them. However the Darkside is horrible in times of Peace, when power of creation in more beneficial and the Darkside turns on Sith who naturally view each other as rivals and causes the Sith to Destroy themselves with these rivalries.

The Lightside is opposite (power of creation) which why the Republic flourishes in Peace and always struggles in times of war.

If the Sith always have an outside enemy they will never turn on each other (on mass anyway), which would mean the Sith will never be defeated, as they are always defeated by themselves in one way or another (despite Luke's best effort's, he was no match for Sidious and it was Vader that killed Sidious after all).

At every point in the story on Illum, Battle for Illum and False Emperor I couldn't help thinking "Yeah, the guy's right!" Plus, most other characters that prefer advancing the Empires fate through thoughtful actions, rather than "farming darkside points" seem to have joined him.

So now I'm basically fighting for an Empire that despises me (I'm an alien) - granted, it always did that, but why am I trying to kill a glorious alternative? - I'm fighting for a bunch of xenophobic dumbnuts & against the only beacons of reason...

DO NOT WANT

Even from a perspective of sheer power, Malgus seems like the logical choice. Schism-Collective Death Lasers? Yes please!

I couldn't help but smile when Malgus said during the False Emperor that "one of you has vowed to join me" - sadly it didn't happen. I would've gladly killed my group :P
I agree. I am mad that the main character for our faction gets killed and the game is only a month old. I wwanted to kill satelee shawn.

That's a pretty major bummer. It would have been awesome if we had an actual choice. This game presents mostly the illusion of choice.

- I spent $149.95 on a video game with no release date, and all I got was the key to the executive washroom.
