In fact there are parts where you(exile) correct Atton about a few of the happenings. The exile simply didn't fight in the great civil war. But the reason is still, simple. Convince the exile that not following the light path can be a good thing.
But what good came of Revan not following the light? The Republic was shattered and weakened to the point of near utter destruction. Worlds were burned and millions of innocents slaughtered. Revan's intentions may have been good, but that doesn't mean anything good actually came out of what was done. And you can't argue that Revan really achieved power either. Revan was captured by the Jedi, and his/her mind erased. The events that play out in KotOR I's dark side version don't lead to Revan gaining power either. Not long after Revan killed Malak and took control of the Sith, he/she left. The Sith then destroyed themselves through a brutal civil war. Nothing really good came for Revan out of not following the light path, except for a limited amount of power that vanished.

I don't believe I implied that, but if I did, I didn't mean to. I meant that he had a better motive for falling to the dark side and being evil than other villains did.

The truly fallen cannot return to the light. If someone "falls" and "returns," they never really, truly fell.
