Actually, with civilian glasses there can also be good guys. it depends on which side said civilian is on. The military of the side of the civilians is always the good guys, unless of course the 'civilians' are actually collaborators working for the enemy. e.g. In WW2, the Japanese civilians think the Japanese are the good guys, while the American civilians think the US are the good guys. The problem is in recent SW EU, they introduced relative morality so we civilians do not even know which side we are on. The problem with Traviss is that she always introduce these Jedi padawans and make them betray the Jedi Order. I mean, c'mon, I haven't read the book 501st, but from the wookieepedia article it sounds like those bands of Jedi would have escaped Coruscant and survived head Etain Tur-Mukan not gotten in the way. And she got killed for her stupidity.
