    I think Mace "Coup d'Etat" Windu proved pretty conclusively that just because you're on the Light side doesn't mean you're one of the good guys.

    Spoiler because you know KoTOR comments should be.
    Wasn't Kreia actually a Sith Lord at the end of the game? She comes out in all Black etc. We know that the game was cut short but we don't know if that would have changed who she actually was. I need to finish my Kotor 2 Game so i can see all this again.

    I find it hilarious that the Jedi see the force as unbalanced when it was thousands of jedi against 2 sith.

    I think Lucas has said that the Force isn't light vs. dark and that they are not supposed to be equal and opposite. He's said that the Darkside is corruption and that the Force isn't balanced until it is gone. Balance to the force doesn't mean some even fight between two factions. When he talks about Vader bring balance he's said it's when Vader killed the emperor and died after his revelation.

    Edit: On one of these forums, somone posted Lucas' speech and take on it all.

    Kreia wasn't really Sith or Jedi. She just wanted the Force to die, or people to be free of its machinations by any means necessary. She subscribed to the Echani (being one herself) philosophy of conflict = personal growth and as such set herself up as the final obstacle in the Exiles training. She was a Sith Lord by virtue of him needing something to fight against, mentally and physically, and overcome. Nothing more.

    She did this because the Exile is the only person known to have manually, willingly severed connections to the Force and as such presents a singular hope for the Galaxy under her view of the Force.

    Edit: As they say, word of god is that the Dark Side is nothing more than a cancer. The Jedi Teachings Are Correct and people just suck too much to follow them. This means Star Wars will always be a stunted black and white fairy tale setting, which I don't like, but that IS the way the setting works. Dark Side has no redeeming qualities, no applications, it is always wrong.

    Having the "One Force, no darkside and lightside!" thing just leads to tons of Mary Sueisms of people being uberjedisitholocks who hold supreme mastery of all spectrums of the Force-conduits.

    Also -- I don't think that "The Lightside Of the Force" has ever been refrenced as such in the context of the world. It's always been The Force and The Darkside of the Force.

    Which is the base of the ideals that by default The Force is the life energy that flows through the galaxy. The Darkside is when you take that flow and violently divert it for your own whim.

    Using applied telekinesis to pull a 1 lb. object to your hand compared to throwing lightning from your fingertips.

    She was Darth Traya, though. While she might have wanted the Force to die when the Exile meets her, at one time, at least, she was a Dark Lord of the Sith.

    Lucas literally referred to the Dark Side of the Force as a cancer.

    And there's this EU quote from Luke: "There is no room for compromise. We walk the path of the light side, or we fall into darkness. There is no gray area, Ben."

    Or it could be inconsistent writing due to different authors being behind the respective quotes. And neither author really putting a whole lot of thought into it.

    So... In Knights of the Republic, I've been trying to role play the best paragon of the Jedi Order as I can.

    Is it bad that I slaughtered all the Sith I could find on Korriban?

    As soon as I had what I needed, I just killed them all.

    I didn't think I'd be able to at first, but a Jedi Gaurdian with full Stims and Jedi Buffs can handle quite a few Sith with no problems. My astrometric droid and Carth died over and over again, though.

    Oh, sure, pull out the reasonable and non-fanboy response. Keep things logical and well thought out. That'll really help.

    Joking aside, you're pretty much right on that. There are a massive number of inconsistencies throughout the entire EU. In one book, Leia will be a full Jedi Knight with a lightsaber and quite capable of taking care of herself. In the next book, she'll have problems using the Force to flick a light switch. Luke will go from confident and powerful to unsure and confused between different authors. Consistent characterization is one of the biggest weaknesses of the EU.

    It's pretty suspension of disbelief breaking too. We're supposed to believe that we needed to be ~sneaky~ to get into the Academy as you can't very well just do mass murder on a Sith occupied planet, you'd never get out alive!

    Then the game forces you to do it anyway. :lol:

    Well, see, there the only reasonable choice was probably to kill both of them.

    I was more talking about after that, when you go back to the Temple, and those guys are like "Where's the teachers?" and I was like "I struck them down, for I am a Jedi."

    They attack me, I dispatch them.

    Now see... The part I can't really defend is when I went in the Temple, I didn't just fight my way to the exit. Oh, no.

    I went to every wing, every room, and killed every Sith I could find, no matter how out of the way it was. If any of them had asked for mercy, I would have spared them, but they didn't.

    So I was ruthless.

    Well, whatever the real truth about Light and Dark is, it seems like Bioware is taking the "two sides of a coin" approach.

    From the Creating Worlds article, emphisis mine:
    Interestingly, the Mystics have been around as long at the Old Republic has--though the culture and people who would become the Voss came much later. In the first days we wanted to bring something completely new to our class offerings and a group who looked at the Force in a fundamentally different way was intriguing. The Mystics would be grey and dangerous to the eyes of the Jedi, able to see through the lies of the Sith and beholden and interested in neither. They would enable us to explore themes of religion (every culture sees gods but interprets them differently), culture (believing themselves to be the chosen people) and politics (due to the infallibility of their visions, they are happily totalitarian). We had numerous different ideas for how they would look, be thought of by the greater galaxy and behave. For a while we had a running joke of Mystic converts standing in spaceports asking weary travelers, “Have you been to Voss?”

    The Jedi Consular article lends a bit of insight to where they seem to be taking it as well...

    of course this has changed since the OT... I'd say it's like the ring but you can use it to some extent without being tainted.

    The moment you touch The Darkside of the Force you are tainted.

    It seems like every time discussions come up about the nature of the Force the people begin touting that they think people should be able to use "both sides" of the Force. That somehow, against all the characters that have tried (and failed) they have the knowledge and know how to "embrace all emotions" and be some type of uber "grey" Jedi.

    The Darkside is cancer and poison. It corrupts you -- wholly and fully, whether your realize it or not.

    The best ally the Darkside has is the concept of the Unifying Force.

    But when the time comes and you realize that your outlook on the nature of the Force has led you down the dark path. I will be there with arm extended to help you up from the darkness.

    Kyle Katarn doesn't matter, we're talking about Word of God here. George Lucas' position is irrefutable, no matter how much we might not like it.

    And Kyle Katarn is usually the first example to pop into the discussion. Which leads to fights about canon, EU authenticity and the lengths developers will go to make a fun game.

    However -- when playing through the Jedi Knight games I made it a point to not use any of the Dark Side powers.

    While I've grown to accept BW's idea of "You must be <this> good/evil to convince Person A to help you", I really wish there they could find another way to approach that mechanic that would make the light side feel more... well, fun.

    or
    Whiny Light Side: "Pretty, pretty please x5"


    Also, I know that you can pick through response choices during conversations with NPCs, but in TOR (and I apologize for not knowing) is there also the "convince" mechanic I mentioned above? I haven't seen or read about this being in.

    A few thoughts on Light vs. Dark...

    I don't think anyone within the Star Wars Universe is aware of what Lucas has decided on the matter, and therefore, just as we do, thier opinions of Lightside vs. Darkside has to come from thier own observations and the stories they have heard. A "Grey" Jedi doesn't know that his/her path of walking both sides will, according to Lucas, eventually doom him/her to the corrupt nature of the dark side, because (s)he is a sentient being who is unaware of his/her nature as a fictional character... And if that never does happen, by the Word of Lucas, (s)he just happened to have the good fortune of dying before (s)he could fall to the Dark Side.

    However, I'm also of the opinion that Mr. Lucas shouldn't have opened his mouth and said anything one way or the other, even if he had the idea in his head ever since A New Hope. Some things are better off left ambiguous...
