I have the same problem with light characters. Though I doubt I'm missing anything :-)

I tried to make a dark side inquisitor once, but gave up on Dromund Kaas. Always felt bad after majority of dark side choices. Deleted character and have no regrets.

Yea, I don't choose options purely for the dark side or light side points, I just find most of the dark side options a little to dark and.. well to be frank, stupid.

So every time I try to play a dark sided character i'm always sucked into my characters story and I pick the options I would pick myself which ends up mostly picking light side options.

I have loyalty to the empire's citizens, but not to the empires rulers, nor it's policies and ways, to be frank I hate the slavery in the empire and one day I hope to change that, because as history shows using fear, oppression and similar tactics to rule will always lead to destruction.

But as one previous poster said, I could just farm dark points in the black talon hehe :P

I didn't make it passed korriban.. I found it stupid killing and torturing everyone.. for one, torture is evil, it only serves to pleasure the person doing it, it bends the truth, people will say anything to make it stop. And secondly killing potential allies and resources it plain stupid and just evil.

Its not stupid as long as it makes u stronger in Dark Side. It's better to have 1 powerful sith than 100 weak servants.

Interesting, I'd like to know what you would do in the following situation...

You've confront a pair of Jedi Masters in a unstable cave on Hoth. One of the masters has been trapped here for many years and yet to recover, yet he has become powerful and a threat to the Empire. You defeat the first master, yet the second bargains for his life. Claiming he is no longer concerned with the war and has no intention of returning. Do you: kill both masters anyway, or spare them and collapse the cave, leaving the Jedi to continue his transcendence?

This situation seems familiar...
