It is a much more interesting story to be playing as a rebel fighting from within rather than as just another cog in a totalitarian machine. That doesn't make these new Romulans wusses since they are in far greater danger from their own than from any other enemy and it will be consistent with the existing story developing on New Romulus.
And it should be noted that freedom for Romulans does not necessarily mean an alliance with the Federation or Klingons.
by that principle, it could be " a much more interesting story to be palying as a Tal'Shiar inflitrator fighting the federation from within, instead of just another cog in the federation" I doubt many federation players would be thrilled if the only way they could play federation was as a Tal'Shiar plant overthrowing the federation etc. If Cryptic wanted to do a 'freedom fighter' faction, it would have been much mroe appropriate to have used a species or faction that was more of a blank slate.
