Yeah, but on the other hand, general Tullius constantly looks down on the Nords, which kind of makes you get why they are revolting in the first place.
I would have preferred to fight against the Dominion, but i do like it when games don't make it simple for you with a black or white, good VS evil choices.
Tullius may sound arrogant, but in the end he certainly can muster some respect for the Nord. After all he's just a soldier and tries to be as professional as he can even when his task is governance and not war. I had no problem fighting the stormcloaks. Ulfric is a pompous ass and most Stormcloaks are xenophobic assholes. My character is a redguard and i'd rather stick to the empire, even if it's gotten under the wheels recently. Besides there are plenty of Nord in the Legion and there always have been. Tiber Septim was a Nord himself.
The Thalmor are the real enemy. And it helps them more to keep the Empire weakened by civil war in its provinces. The Empire should get back into control and concentrate on kicking them back out. And Tullius thinks the same.
Gotta visit the Thalmor headquarters with my dagger sometime soon...
You also have to see into the sacrifices the Nord made while fighting for the empire. Many times in the game you meet some veterans of the fighting in Cyrodiil and the stuff they tell you becomes meaningless, once Ulfric gets the upper hand.

Actualy, if i remember my lore correctly, the Redguards also ceded from the empire in protest of them giving the Thalmor half of Hammerfall and instead continued fighting the Thalmor alone, to a stand still. so, you are in fact betraying your Redguard kin.
I kow about that. But i don't feel like born in Hammerfell. My home was in Cyrodiil, Anvil, or Skingrad. Race means nothing to the Empire. Plenty of Redguard there. and i rather keep it like that, than let it become like Windhelm.
