This reminds me of Dara Ó Briain's riff about how he doesn't believe in God, but he's still Catholic, because not believing in God isn't enough to get you out of the Catholic Church. "You could join the Taliban," he observes, "you'd simply be regarded as a bad Catholic."
Similarly, I have a Sith Warrior who has a Light/Dark over-under a Jedi Master would be pleased with, because he's constantly, compulsively Doing The Right Thing. I can only assume that if his colleagues knew about that, they wouldn't chuck him out of the Order or try to kill him, because he's a player character and such things cannot happen to persistent-world player characters; they'd simply regard him as a bad Sith.
(That feature of the game world does make it difficult to take darkside Major Bad Guy characters seriously. Darth Baras just isn't scary when you know he can't do anything but let your constant insubordination slide. :)
"AAAAUUUURRRRGGGHHHH! I CANNOT BREAK HIM!!" "But you sure can shout." "BE SILENT OR I WILL CUT OUT YOUR TONGUE!" "Yeah, yeah. Stop whining and gimme my next assignment, Tubs. I'm double-parked."
