Yeah, that's fair. When the question first came to mind, I couldn't remember seeing any sort of guards in the senate building at all, so I went there to look. That's when I noticed the CS guards, but their uniform is so bland they sort of just fade into the background, which is why I didn't remember them. On the other hand, the dark honor guards on Korriban are hard to forget due to their striking appearance and how they kneel when the player passes by after a certain point in the story. Of course, it's a decision to not have the mirrored reflection of ceremonial guards between Republic and Empire, likely commenting on the Empire's vanity, value of tradition, subservience, and surveillance/security theater, but I think it could have also been a good decision and provided more commentary to have included the senate guards, showing some vanity and traditionalism within the higher political classes of the Republic, but confining them to the senate building and not having them kneel before anyone, showing how these values are present but more restrained in the Republic.
Either way, I do like the inclusion of Coruscant Security across the planet, but I just wish they would have stood out a little more to make the player more readily identify the connection between their presence and increased security measures after the sacking of Coruscant. I think senate guards would have also been a minor contribution to that theme.
Agree so much with this. I've played Swtor since launch, but took a long break during the era of dark/light side tokens. Pretty much all my characters ground out the light/dark system during vanilla Swtor where we could buy different items off the venders depending on your rank. I have never had any of these tokens.
Bioware mentioned something about adding tokens back in later on? Well this is vague as usual. Still waiting to pick up my Arcann customizations which should have never been locked behind these venders in the first place. Right now I can't purchase anything on these venders and bioware will most likely wait another five years. (Sorry just irritated)
Bioware needs to do something. Either move this stuff downstairs to the cm venders and the original companion venders, or just let us buy for another currency or credits and lock certain items behind light/dark level again. I would like to see customizations legacy bound though or put both customizations on each vender. Just bad when you play a light side Imp or dark side Rep and can't buy the customization you want.
