Five Reasons to Play Galactic Republic

Five Reasons to Play Galactic Republic  - Star Wars: The Old Republic -

In SWTOR, the Sith Empire may be "cooler", but they don't have wookiees.  In this week's List, we take a look at five reasons no one should miss playing a member of the Galactic Republic.

This may not be a good idea, starting off the List with a reason that's essentially: because you can still be an evil bastard.  But it's true.  In SWTOR, during the course of your Galactic Republic goody-two-shoes' story, you can choose to be as much of a prick as you want to be.  You can walk the line and make sure you're still on the "good side" while being a total sleaze-ball.  That is, if you have the stomach for it.  It's a bit like playing the good-guy card while harnessing the Dark Side of the Force, but it's worth it if you want all the nifty Dark Side gear from the Republic Fleet.
