Well he did learn that his father was a die, so I think that in itself is a light/dark struggle. He was born from a Jedi and raised as a sith. General Kota is offering to help him become a Jedi.

They didn't really express the romance very well, until the end. And regardless, he still chose to die for the rebels instead of just go away with Juno.

He went in the cave obsessed with finding Juno and went out obsessed with finding Juno. Nothing really changed. And for Yoda to say he needed to follow what he saw, is very unlike Yoda. Yoda urged Anakin to forget about his attachments. Why would he here encourage it, if he hoped Starkiller to be a Jedi?

The only thing TFU2 expressions-from my point of view-is he's a teenager obsessing over his girlfriend :P it's not like he did anything "dark" related. At least Anakin murdered Jedi, Younglings & Separatist.
