I'm guessing:

Jedi - lose lots of credits helping people; spout about 'peace' and all that; have your pacifist, non-aggressive (for the most part) force powers; get a feeling of moral satisfaction.

Sith - stick a lightsabre through the above.

Decisions, decisions...

The problem is that all the little kiddies will be Sith since it's the "UBR1337".

I am so siding with the Sith Empire. My first choice would be some class that uses heavy firepower, like a rocket launcher or chaingun, but I'd gladly become a Sith Consular just as soon.

The Sith are so much more appealing to me, they use their passion as a fuel for their power. And I'm an absolutist and a fundamentalist, I like Bush, the Decepticons, and red lightsabers. /randomness

i won't be a jedi because they have proper ideals or anything. You can join the sith and still be a goody goody so that's not really an issue. That's why i'm aiming for 2 mains at launch and then see whichever side is more fun

Omgs >___<! I so wish I was still Sith... *sigh* This would have been the ultimate game to flex my Sithly muscles....

As it is though, I'll definately be Jedi... Though maybe I'll have a Sith charrie at some point, y'know, for old times sakes ^______^

And some sort of mercenary would be a lot of fun too...

But Jedi to start!

If I can, a Grey Jedi.
Just not up for the whole have to be Sith or Jedi thing. I would rather have my own philosophy and not be with either one, but .. If I have to choose .. I would probably choose Sith.

I wouldn't be mean per se to get what I want, but I would rather learn all aspects of the Force than just the Light or Dark side. It'll be more helpful.
But if I get that option is another thing altogether unfortuantly

When I played pre-cu SWG, my characters were Imperial and I had a dark jedi. I did it mostly because there were some people here [at LF] that I wanted to play with. It was my first MMO and had zero clue how they worked.

So this time around I'll be a light side/republic etc.

On the plus side, the Sith always betray each other. The first person I hear saying that gets a shiny red energy beam to the face. Hopefully they learn to not be idiots, but if they don't: I can pull the lightsaber to the face trick all day long.

About my affiliations, I'll be a Jedi who has serious authority problems, despite being undoubtedly Light Side. In other words, classic Chaotic Good.

I hope that they keep the Republic and the Sith empire as factions, but also let you choose to be neutral. Because in Star Wars, just like in life, there is always more than two sides.

And if I play this, I will be siding with the Jedi.

Ideally, I'd like to play in a group that was doing something like the "Order of the White Lotus" from Avatar- ie. a group of Sith and Jedi that believe balance needs to be maintained, and work together to sabotage their own groups when they become too successful and generally make sure that neither side gets the upper hand.

Without knowing much detail about how the game works yet, I'm guessing I'll choose Sith to start with, but work my way to the light side. I think the story line just seems interesting following that path.

I hope for a more independent manner of going through the story as well, which parallels a "grey" alignment of my character (I hope for bonuses for grey alignment). But I'll probably end up with the Jedi anyway.

I like the Jedi philosophy but usually the Jedi follow the letter of the law verses the spirit of the law. (i.e. Vrook) Their logic seems flawed as well. Not my style.

The Sith philosophy made a strange sort of sense but I always thought of the Sith as some poor nerds from school who got picked on by the popular kids and now they want revenge by going homicidal. (Malak, anyone?)

I will either be a reluctant, saucy Jedi or a freelance smuggler with a heart of gold!

Well... Far as I can tell IF they have smuggler, it's gonna be on the republic side. Smuggler has always been my calling. I'll be as close to the middle ground as possible. Jedi and Sith are two sides of the same coin. The coin I hope ends up in my pocket...

The problem with me is, that whenever I play a good RPG, I always do what I would do if I was the character, which is obviously light side.

Whenever I play dark side in KotOR or Mass Effect, it doesn't feel right, somehow. But for some reason, in Fallout 3 I can't help but kill everybody I see.

Anyways, I would like to have three characters. My main one would be a jedi who fights for the Republic. Not Uber-powerful, but an overall cool character who follows the light side and does good deeds but at the same time disagrees with most of the Jedi teachings. My second would probably be a mercanary who goes around and fights for money. My third will be a cold, heartless Sith.

Think I got all the bases covered.

Ugh, this IS actually hard to do.

The only reason I'd want to play as a Jedi is because I hate electrocuting kittens and stealing money from senior citizens.

On the other hand, I hate the Jedi because they are actually worse than the Sith in so many ways I can't list right now. They are downright hypocritical, ineffective, arrogant, and on the whole WORTHLESS.

So I'm going to go with the Sith because you know what? Sure they've done some heinous stuff, but so have the Jedi (both direct and complicity). As Atton said, "At least the Sith are honest about what they are fighting for." Plus my person views support passion over "peace"/stagnation. The way I see it, the Jedi mind wash people into denying their true natures and expect them not to be dysfunctional. The Sith take control of their destiny, harness their emotions in order to obtain victory.

And I cannot honestly work for a blatantly corrupt government like the Galactic Republic. Plus they pretend to offer freedom.... As long as there is someone with more power than you, you can never have true freedom, so the essential promise of democracy is a lie. If I am going to be ruled by an oligarchy I would rather the oligarchs be honest about it rather than selling me pointless idealism.

So I'm joining the Sith, even if I have to steal candy from babies to do it.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

I'll be a jedi, I couldn't stand being evil in k1, it's just not how I am. However, I will follow the Kreian idea in that I will look at both sides of the coin, because the Sith history is just as rich as the Jedi history. My main character will be Jedi but I will make a side character as a Sith (preferably with an awesome costume like Revan ) and possibly yet another side character as a Chaotic Good Mandalorian/Republic Trooper. That's if mandalorians are a class/race in this game.
