For them, the emphasis is on drama, social interaction, and immersion. They just want a character to play. And sometimes, for the purposes of a story, you need to step outside of Starfleet.
Now is this an important "must have" feature for STO? No, probably not.
I totally get that, and I agree, it would be nice if there were more civ cloths to choose from - cloths that actually look 24th/25th century-esque without looking abnormal (some of the robe options are seriously a whole lot of WTF). At the same time, I have characters that even though they are on either side, aren't affiliated with the Fed or KDF. I still manage to get the clothing options to look less "uniform" and more "civie" or mercenary-like.
And I'm not even an RPer.
