    Hard to tell because they haven't elaborated on the characters. In his appearances, the light-sided Sith Warrior is portrayed as honorable and decent, with aristocratic overtones. Kind of like "good Roman" soldier. You serve an Imperialist cause and believe at least nominally in "Might Makes Right" (or maybe you just don't see an alternative), but show consideration to those who deserve it and restraint in situations where darker-aligned Sith would crush everybody and cackle evilly. The Sith Empire's law is pretty draconian, so any observance of lofty moral ideals pushes the light-sided Sith Warrior into the chaotic spectrum, to put it in D&D terms. Still, he is an enforcer of the Sith Empire, so he gravitates around the letter of the law.

    He set his in the world of Vader and all that, but as the game progressed (before we became friends) Vader was killed with the emperor.
    It was fun because I could literally be any character I wanted, be any Star Wars related Alien and go any where.

    He also made his own aliens and hidden cultures outside of the game books.
    I sympathize with your desire for options, but with all the storyboards and programming that goes into a virtual game, it is hard to plot around sandbox features. At best it would be picturesque, that is, a non-linear narrative. That undermine any epic tone to the story, and Star Wars tends to be characterized as an epic. In all probability, it wouldn't have much of a story at all -- just a setting and your own imagination to fill in the gaps.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    At the right time, absolutley brilliant. Hard to watch now because it's dated badly. Didn't enjoy the Star Trek films though.

    Love DS9 and Voyager - brilliant stuff. Cisco / Sisko and Janeway are really engaging characters and that's why I love the two series. The next Generation had boring (to me) characters like Picard etc)

    We get into whether you like 4,5 and 6 or 1,2 and 3 or the whole shebang here.. I enjoyed 3,4,5 and 6 as this is the main story of how Anikin changes from saviour to tyrant and the story is really made by the last sequence in Star Wars 3.

    1 and 2 have unforgiveable characters for which George Lucas should either be shot or thoroughly ashamed, they also lack the one essential ingredient - "story" - that makes any film worth watching or following.

    IMO, the only thing that really, truly sucked in the newer Star Wars movies (other than Jar-Jar), was the attempt to create romance between Anakin and Padme. Stilted dialog and an utter lack of anything like chemistry. That was painful to watch.

    Re: Star Trek or Star Wars?

    Star Wars is to depressing a franchise. 6 movies and some cartoons and books.

    Star Trek is far more uplifting plus has had some hot babes that Star Wars never had! Star Trek has had 5 series, with 3 lasting 7 seasons, one for 5 seasons and the original for 3. Has had 11 movies so far, with a 12th in the works. Has huge book collection as well.

    Stargate should get a mention too since that is a franchise that has almost reached the same heights as Star Trek and dwarfs Star Wars. One series that lasted 10 years, one series that last 5, and a new series that shows much promise. It has had 1 major feature film (which started it all), and 2 made for TV movies. Plus Stargate has the uncanny method of explaining myths, historical events and persons and so on, in a far more believable way than any Sci Fi tv series ever.

    But as a Sci Fi in general.. any Sci Fi is great!
