Light or Dark

Which way do you usually play TSL, lightside or darkside? I prefer lightside, but I have passed the game as Darkside male and female a few times to explore all the options.

What, Canadians can't be evil? I consider myself as militant and evil as the next guy, and I happily trumpet my status as a patriotic Canadian.

Seriously, I do both equally, though for the first playthrough I go LS so I get the "good-guy" ending. I feel sorry for those who only play as LS this or DS that. They're missing half the game that way. DS is generally more fun though. I can honestly say I got more belly laughs out of my Darth Obnoxio character than Jedi Master Flanders.

I usually tend to play Darkside, although I am in the process of playing the game on the Lightside.

I go DS for kotor2.
For kotor1 I play LS all the way, but got the DS ending, cause I have a "change of heart" when I see Bastila, which I think would only be reasonable after all the romance I do with her. It would also make a wonderful tragic story.

Current Game: KotOR
Sometimes I start off saying, "No matter what, I'm going to beat the game as a Dark-sider." But minutes in I'm so overwhelmed by guilt that I go back to LS. So, I've always ended up playing KOTOR 1 and 2 as a light-sider, because it's hard to be so freakin' cruel for 15 hours straight of gameplay.

(For those who don't know: If you beat the game LS and then again as DS, the third time through extra conversation options will appear with your party members.)

o.O I don't know you can do that in kotor1, or at least I haven't noticed it.

But yeah for some reason kotor2 makes me want to play LS more. Maybe I am trying to do things against that old witch just to pisss her off.

For kotor1 though, it sounds nice to go LS, but I can't really see Revan not going with Bastila after the incident. My last planet was Korriban, basically you know your secret, lost your love, and goes razing the darn place just so I can go get her back faster. The mind is still in chaos, and there is no reason not to go with your love when you get a second(and might be only) chance.

I play through as honestly as I can, ignoring whether my decisions were light or dark side, and at the end I was near as much of a light side as I could get despite some evil decisions (dealing with the scam artist on Dantoine for example).

I like DS for TSL, mainly because of the bonuses you get from HK-47, and Hanharr, as well. The strength and constitution turn your run of the mill Sith Lord into a formidable fighting machine.

I hear that. Mira is an absolute blast, why choose a hot babe who cracks rude jokes over Chewbacca gone bad? That's part of why I prefer light side, the good guys are more appealing, and I'd rather have a choice of who to fight with as opposed to being stuck with just Canderous (original game if you don't have T3 or HK).

Lightside all the way but there are times that I would like to say a few grey words. Some of the options are too idealistic.

I only play Light my first couple times through to soak up all the proper story elements and such. Once I play Dark, I find it somewhat difficult to play any other way.

I actually don't have a problem with being Dark; it's quite humorous and wicked fun leaving terror in your wake. The added influence feature is pretty nifty too.. I like trying to draw my entire party into being evil.

Actually, yeah, come to think of it, I prefer DS for KOTOR 1, because it kinda of stinks for the great Sith Lord to become a plain ol' Jedi. But in KOTOR 2, I always play LS because most of my party is LS-aligned (that is, DS responses will lose influence with them), and also everyone looks just plain ugly if they're on the DS. Diseased skin, too much eye-shadow...that sort of thing. Yeah, and you get Mira, of course.

You can still be a LS player with high wisdom and use those powers.

Force Storm, yes. Not Force Crush (unless you cheat).
spoiler:
You get the Force Crush power if your PC is DS after the last visit to Dantooine. You get Force Enlightenment if your PC is LS after the last visit to Dantooine.

Not sure which old master it might be but Luke Skywalker certainly believed this, and practiced what he preached in places such as Jabba's Palace.

OK. You got me. I play LS most of the time. What a surprise, eh?

I've played DS on KotOR two or three times and have yet to finish my first DSL play-thru on TSL. I don't know why but the DS path on TSL just doesn't seem right to me. I guess especially because my PC has good influence over most of the party and they are all mostly DS aligned but they still berate my PC for making DS decisions. KotOR on the other hand had a DS story that worked quite well.

I play DS in both games, and then at the start of TSL I say: "What the hell? Reven saved the republic!".

Atris was one of the funniest conversations ever.
"Do you realise what you have done?"
"I have destroyed a planet. It was fun."
"You fool. Many planets rely on Peragus for fuel, and you may have doomed them all!"
"Twenty planets with one explosion. Bonus."

/\That was my representation of what was said, those aren't the exact words.

Light Side. With lot of CHA because I love Dark Side powers ...

I play LS more easily, I don't know why... When I play DS, it's fun five minutes, no more... Killing everybody in one finger splapping, that's annoying in the end. And the storyline is (that's my opinion) more interesting in LS.
...
...
But I like Force Crush :] ...
