Examples: the Sith Warrior and the Sith Inquisitor are both on Korriban at more or less exactly the same time. Either or both of them can murder "traitors" for Inquisitor Arzanon, or undergo Overseer Ragate's Trial of Blood and Bone, but only one can:
* Retrieve the mutant Tuk'ata brain for Lord Renning.
* Release the Jedi prisoner for Overseer Whatsherface.
* Scan the overseers for Lord Abaron (it makes no storytelling sense for more than one person to help him).
* A host of other things, all of which involve unique objects or beings. (Naman Fal's son, the research chemicals, etc.)

So, my view would be that only one of the four or eight classes on a planet (er, the player character) runs the main <Story Arc> for each planet, while the other three or seven (non-player classes) do something else instead.
My main point with this post is that Broga is alive all throughout the Republic Quest but dies on the Imperial side. It is quite clear that pub-side takes place after the Imperial side for Quesh because the General in charge of Republic forces is different on the imp side (only the Republic missions show General Korvan being the one in charge so it's assumed the General shown on Imperial side has died or been replaced by then, but Korvan doesn't die either way) and because Moff Dracen has been toppled one way or another by the end of the Republic Quest. Broga the Hutt has a "kill" option on the Imperial side, which makes no sense since he's alive and well on the Republic side which takes place after it, for reasons I already mentioned. Hence the confusion.
