Well we already have two planets full of menacing true sith. Kesh and Korriban. Not to mention we had Darth Caedus and Lumiya last series. I guess a lot of us just wanted another Mara. I miss mara myself and I wish Vestara had gone that route rather than evil. The message of the Original Trilogy was redemption. Anakin Skywalker was redeemed in ROTJ. Since then we've had that message ignored with Darth Caedus (its debatable with Jacen, especially because FOTJ where Jacen's ghose is still evil and bitter) and Lumiya dying unredeemed. Now Vestara seems to be heading down the irredeemable path. Also the guy above me has a real good point, it would have been a great story arc to have vestera be redeemed, and a major success for the jedi after they failed with jacen. Also the whole Palpatine is a mental gnat compared to the bad guys of this story was from the villians perspective. These guys do have some impressive feats but they are nowhere near palpatine's level of genius.
