Well, would you want to be a rough ridin' scallywag or a proper, just, and loyal Imperial?
I would personally want to live the life of a Pirate 'cause a Pirates life's for me!  :pir_laugh2:

pirate! sounds more fun and at least you happen upon the occasional pirate chick every now and then.

The imperials do have nice uniforms but are probably very hot in the tropical sun of our basements/rooms.

oh wanted to add that also pirates have better ships than the imperials, imo.

Imperial! You get a sexy uniform and a nice hat!  :pir-devil:  And that's all you need. Well, that and some lower ranking officers and some grunts to boss around, but I digress.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Interesting...

I'm a null. I would want to be a Pirate because they seem to have kick megablocks ships and treasure, but the imperials have awesome hats and coats...

Soldier! Although not quite the money making opportunities you do get, but not quite the endangerment of being hanged, while still having the adventure! :classic:

Imperials - cause you can always turn into a pirate after! But being a pirate you could never turn yourself into a Soldier.

Besides I always like being on the winning side.

Imperial all the way! If we are talking if we were a minifig that is. In real life robably a pirate, because the conditions were crap regardless of your position and a good and short life would have been better. But if I was a minifig, I would choose imperial.

A pirate's life sounds tempting for me. Being a soldier means obeying the orders of some arrogant officers.  :pir-wink:

Imperials all the way! Who'd want to be a filthy, ugly pirate? Plus, we're the "good guys" and good guys always win. :pir-wink: Am I right?

I'd say pirates, because as the song says, being a pirate is all fun and games (til somebody looses an ear/eye/hand/leg)

I prefer Imps. but it would be so much more fun looting some Somalian oil tankers! (sorry for my insensitivity about this emotional event :pir-blush: )
