When I posted my answer, your rant consisted exactly of the text I quoted. I can't answer to things you haven't written yet.
I know. That's why I answered you.
I often develop my rants further as I write. Often adding even more thoughts.
Lots of editing !
Basically, that's how I write my short stories, too !
I realized, for example, how much detailed in the so-called "Star Wars" universe the Empire is. It's the bad side.
And how little - in contrast to that - the good side is developed, lore-wise.
Apart from the Jedi, but the Sith always have the better toys. Of course. They have to. Like that "Sith Alchemy". Jedi don't have that.
How much the Empire is developed regarding organizations - be it secret ones or not. Even the old republic doesn't have that. The only rtime the Republic gets developewd is during the Clone Wars, and even there, we learn very little about the organizations there. The Jedi might have some kind of "secret service", but only the Empire's Inquisitors are fully developed.
To me, it's always the same old story : The bad side is always better developed - in every aspect - than the good side. As I tried to point out above.
As a side-note, I realized today what would be my personal "dream game" : Only exploration and story. No fighting.
Of course, that will never be. Too much introvert. No food for extroverts. No-one would want to play that.
