good 'n' evil; princesses and dragons and knights and castles

so is morality defined by intent or consequence? is there even such a thing as good and bad? why does it matter?

if emperor palpatine created the empire with the idea that it would bring peace and prosperity to the republic, does that make it good? or were his actions 'wrong' because of the vastly negative effects?
maybe, since most of us would agree (i think?) that morality is never absolute, his actions were good from his point of view but bad from everyone else's?

i guess i'm really wondering if morality is defined internally or externally, or if there is even such a thing as morality
