Darkside, or the Lightside?

Just another boring poll here, from me.

I was just browsing through the main site's game info, when I came across the following part:

Quote:
Players will interact with famous classic Star Wars locations and characters while facing the ultimate choice: fight for good and freedom in the light side or follow the path of power and evil to the dark side.
It seems you can choose your allignment of the Force, similar to JK1. With that, I'll ask a boring poll about your decision to be good or evil.

I don't yet know how your allignment is 'tainted' by killing or harming civilians, or failing missions. But either way, your path can be altered by your choice.

For as far as I know (I think I've read it somehwere), you only move closer to the dark/light side by selecting either light or dark force powers...

And I'm unsure what to do. It will depend on the light force powers. If they can keep me busy, I'll be fighting for everything good in this world I guess

I'm going to play through each side at least once....because hey, that's one of the sweet parts about this game - replayability.

Like all games with options I will play both sides. Most likely more than once.

But, since I am a goody-goody I will play the light side first.

I always lean towards playing Lightside, and I'm sure I'll do that first, but I might give the Darkside a go too.... If there are plenty of civvies to fry with lightning, of course

What about an option for those that are going to play through BOTH ways? Atleast that's what I'm going to do.

(also, remember that, when asked "what happens if you mixed force powers together?" the devs replied saying that they can't talk about that yet -- maybe we'll get 3 endings? possibly?)

But I'm going to play the game as a light jedi first, so I guess I'll vote Light.

I hope they don't have MP only forces, except maybe team heal and team energize... Force absorb could be handy in SP, against dark jedi

I think I'm going to play as a darksider first, then as a lightsider, and then as a überguy (uses both dark and light forces), and then I'm going to play with cheats, as the überüberjedi

I'm unsure atm. I'll probably go light first then dark.

Light side for me. I don't pretty much like the dark side. The only good thing about the dark side is the Force Grip attack Look at the light side powers. Heal is damn useful. So is mind trick. Maybe they'll add the good protection and absorb. I'm more of the defensive player so the light side for me. Offensive players should take the dark side.

When they say mixed Force powers they're talking about combining two powers.

what would be neat if instead of having 1 "turning point" you could have several chances to change sides. For example if you go to the darkside a boss you fight could be Kyle. He could attempt to tempt you back to the light. If you go light some dark jedi might try to turn you to the dark side.

I imagined that the choocie to the Light or the Dark would start to be decided as early as building the lightsaber, like you make a double bladed lightsaber you have a higher chance of turning Dark since it's originally a Sith weapon. But more to the point, Light for me.

God I hope they stick Boba Fett in this game.

Based on the results I can see that I am not alone in knowing Lightside is THE side. That is to say, THE side in MP.
SP? Well, I'll play both, but Darkside probably first.
