One particular quest line on Taris struck me as interesting in how NPCs could have depth in their own personal morality and value systems. Spoiler alert: Below is the photoset of Cera and Garthe. They were part of a research team that got attacked by rakghouls (think, space zombies). While looking for the team, you find out that Garthe was graverobbing on the side. After that is resolved (here I chose to expose his deeds to his partner--light side choice), you're asked by Cera to analyze rakghoul DNA and figure out that the rakghouls are hanging around their ancestors' burial grounds, which gives evidence of their sentience or that at least they still feel familial bonds. Garthe then takes on the moral high ground, arguing that they can't use this information to kill the rakghouls more effectively. They're more than just mindless beasts that want to eat your brains!
