I don't think this kills the attempt to roleplay.
The exile is a complicated person, not just a blind follower of the Jedi Code, or a brute of the Sith.
In fact I think pure LS/DS choices kill the complicated philosophy of the game. For example, there are quests whose first steps are Darksided and have LS outcomes.
Another thing is that it is really, really, really easy to max out Kreia's influence no matter which path you choose to walk. Every lesson of hers comes with an influence gain.
