I just can't get over the fact that as simple and as iconic as the Sith robes are, we haven't been given the option to have them in the game Dunno if any1 else has been tortured by the same thing, but indd, here's a little something for u guys to rest your eyes upon:

Well lol bud c'mon this is non-sense.. so i wanna do dps like a marauders/sentinel as a immortal juggernaut or maybe some bounty hunters will wanna use lightsaber after your request.

Anyways, let's back to the topic.

First please do not copy huge shoulders from WoW or from any another games. We do not need huge shoulders,

Second we are mystic and dark warriors not another droid / human like androids. So we dont need mechanical armors. Tbh I'm not talking about life support in armor and even we are not injured and don't need life support like Anakin Skywalker, at least most of us.

And last one i wanna repeat myself... We wanna be iconic with in armor but again not with huge shoulders and not with android like mechanical life support.
“Equality is a lie…A myth to appease the masses. Simply look around and you will see the lie for what it is! There are those with power, those with the strength and will to lead. And there are those meant to follow—those incapable of anything but servitude and a meager, worthless existence.”

I agree! When I saw the Jedi and their belt-over-cloak look I was already a bit disappointed, and the short sleeve cut of the Sith cloaks is really quite frustrating. ^^ Personally I don't care about practicality or seeing my armbands/gloves/etc - I would love long sleeves.
I do like the biomechanical style of Sith gear but at the same time I'd have loved to have a simple black kimono-type robe like most of you are saying. Then again when you see the trouble games generally have with animating cloaks ... As soon as it's long and billowy it starts cutting through the character or getting stuck or bugging. That's probably why we can't have overly long hair or long dreadlocks, or even trailing sleeves; perhaps it's a b*tch to animate? I don't know.
As for what I' d like to see - WHERE'S ALL THE FUR?
http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Robb_Stark
I like to see my pure-blood Marauder as an aristocratic bastard with just enough compassion to appear not to care if his choices aid others (he's Light-side). So, having a British accent and being pure-blood, I'd love to see a bit of fur around the shoulders. Also, since we do travel a lot, fur adds that extra "traveller/pilgrim" look. It might look a little Medieval but, well, the Jedi robe does look like traditional Japanese clothing so hell.
Now I know that doesn't really fit with the whole "murderer" look but still, as someone said above, there's all the cut scenes and diplomatic things and meetings to think of.

Otherwise:

Sorry to be Pottery on you all, but, either Snape looks like a Sith or the Sith have something on Snape. Billowy sleeves and a Tudor-ish button-up style.. perfect!

All in all, add sci-fi mechanics to a more medieval look and I'll be satisfied. And, more billowy elements please.

I think simplicity is the key here... I don't want to see the current Christmas tree Halloween type looking armor that is supposed to make you stand out by the number of tentacles that are sticking out of your head piece. Simple black robe with a hood speaks dark side to me much more... Same goes of the light side, actually I would think even more considering what the light side stands for...

Armor with effects like black smoke coming off of it would be cool... Something to make us just look that much more BA and sinister.

Please disregard this, it's a terrible idea.

Go back to playing World of Warcraft if you want your character to be continously on fire.

Despite being a totally useless wuss, Darth Bandon from kotor had some nice looking armor.

Malak had nice armor too, I especially like the sideways cloak. Looks very regal and fitting for the noble warrior.
