Yeah, those pesky rebel scum deserved what they got! Blast them for
corrupting the Lord of the Sith in the last movie. Can't wait to see
rise of the Empire in the prequels coming up Real Soon Now.
But then people complain about all those who decide that they want to be
different and play the "EVIL" faction. I think that more people worry
about the anti-heroes more than the un-hero. The other thing you have
worry about is that if everyone wanted to play the good guys, who would
left to play against? (Of course, in the battle between good and evil,
evil has more fun. Go VTOG!) When everyone has a "grey" background, it
allows players to choose for themselves whom they wish to best represent
them. By being no better nor any worse, it doesn't make them all bad,
as it doesn't make them all good.
And that, IMNSHO, is not, by itself, a Bad Thing.
