Nope.

Yes, in approximately 3700 years when the Sith Lord Palpatine is long dead and the "Empire" is run by "mere mortals" rather than Sith Lords (and those who call themselves Sith and Darths and Dark Lords are little more than tyrants with delusion of grandeur), the "Galactic Imperial Remanent" will join the Republic in a new "Galactic Alliance."

Other than that...no way.

Which irks me, because the Sith at least have a different perspective on the Force that at least thinking about and observing could do good in breaking the Jedi's stagnation. The non-Sith portions of the Empire have nothing uniquely useful about them at all.

As many as there need to be to pace the flashpoint between bosses.

Revan has never been aligned with the greater goals of the Jedi Order. He entered the Mandalorian Wars against their explicit commands, taking a number of Jedi with him. Is it so hard to believe that he did the same with the Foundry, especially since he probably never even talked to the Council (after all, he had essentially been declared a heretic after the Battle of Rakata Prime. He was left alone only because he agreed not to spread his heresy among the rest of the Jedi) after his rescue from the Maelstrom.

Revan's actions are not a barometer for the Jedi order or the Republic any more than the Emperor's actions are a barometer for the Sith Order or the Empire. I guarantee you had the Dark Council grasped what the Emperor's little cult was doing, they'd have put a stop to it themselves.

Are you kidding? The Sith are crazy murderers, and like to kill puppies. "A different perspective on the Force" is like saying Hitler had a different perspective on how to run a country.

I like that idea, its reasonable, and possible, like said run by Mortals, and something new and coherent coming out of it, in a new way.

Sha'al: There will be peace with the Empire, after you are MY slaves.

Jagoss: There will be peace with the Empire, after the Jedi are all dead.

Hasina: There will be peace with the Empire, after Imperial Intelligence has overthrown the Dark Council.

Sargonas: There will be peace with the Empire, at which point not much will change because as long as there are 2 sentient beings in this galaxy, one will pay through the nose to get the other killed.

Wait, wouldn't that require three?

Lord Kaan had it right with his brotherhood of darkness. He pretty much stopped the infighting. Ran a crap Empire, but he almost had it right.
