I give you, Darth Vectivus
. Say hello Darth Vectivus.
I don't view the Sith as good guys (that's like saying the mountain men were "just misunderstood"), but I do think that Revan became a Sith for the sole purpose of protecting the galaxy at large from a greater evil than himself.
If you had the option of adding the strength of your armies and fleets to those of your homeland by systematically taking over, or letting your homeland be enslaved and pillaged, which would you choose? Besides, if Malak hadn't taken over Revan might've actually taken a position more like that of a Chancellor rather than Emperor. Let them keep their freedoms but remain in power to defend when needed.
