Note : I haven't played the DA:I campaign at all, so am answering only based on the first two games.

My sympathies tend to go towards mages. Or actually, it's the other way around : there is no way I can support templars. The templar approach to dealing with mages is that the actions of a few mages are reason enough to obliterate the whole of them, and they at many points push this attitude so far it becomes the source of the problem and a self-fufilling prophecy : "Hey, look, we keep bullying mages until they snap, and then use the fact they can snap as an excuse to bully them".

THe reason why I dont vote "for" mages as much as against templars is that they do have their share of responsibility, and that if they don't want to be policed by external oppressors, they should make sure to keep deal with their own renegades better. Mages CAN go wrong, which is not an excuse for punishing them by anticipation, but they should be responsible for dealing with the consequences.
