The Sith Wear the Best Outfits in The Old Republic

The Jedi use their mystical powers for good. The Sith? The Sith use their mystical powers for sexy. Check out what the well-dressed Sith Warrior will be wearing in BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic.

If Star Wars has taught me anything, it's that the bad guys always look way cooler than the good guys. Just look at Darth Vader versus Luke Skywalker. One is wearing a long flowing cape and black plastic armor festooned with various bits of Imperial flair. The other? A terrycloth bathrobe. They tried to sexy-up Luke in Jedi with that all-black number, but that only confused fans. I distinctly remember wondering when Luke turned evil when I first saw him in his darker clothes.

Good generally triumphs over evil, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a better looking group of losers.

Yeah, I just called the Sith losers. File that away for when The Old Republic launches later this year.

Okay, I realize it's probably a technical or coding limitation of some sort, but seriously: when did lightsabers become glowing beat down sticks instead of swords that cut things in half because they are made out of LAZORS?

Honestly, if you're going to put lightsabers in a game, you better be able to hew off limbs, heads and torsos with them, not just club people down to the ground.
