I agree. This is one of the biggest flaws I see in modern day writing of villains. They are obviously more powerful. They are very much more destructive and violent, yet, when they have victory in their grasp, they make a treaty. They sacked Courscant, they WON.

I'd say the premise works with Courscant and possibly a few other core worlds being the "last bastion" of the Republic. That would make a treaty much more believable.
