Yeah, I'd say you're right.
I'd bet that the whole Lightside/Darkside is ToR's alternate description for "alignment"
Random thought.. would be interesting if alignment & ls/ds position where separate stats. (ie LS leaned Sith, DS leaned Republic).. using the LS/DS stat as a force/gear/ability modifier. Kinda like KotOR had the force powers classified whereas a (good) Jedi could still use Lightning/Choke etc but it just costing more... vice-versa
Probably be more of a pita on the developer side though having to take that equation in to gear drops, power balance, etc. meh who knows... hehe. Would make for some interesting character builds though
