I've been doing some research and was wondering if there was there ever an order worse than Order 66 in terms of evil and death? I've heard people say there was, but now I want a real answer.

Order 37: Capture of a single wanted individual through the mass arrest and threatened execution of a civilian population. Follow-up directives include scenarios for body disposal of civilian casualties and suppression of communications.
This would be the only one I can see possibly being more evil. Whether or not it is "evil" is subjective, but it definitely unethical.
The ethics of betraying a comrade and the mass arrest and execution of civilians is like comparing apples to oranges. Legally speaking, however, Order 66, when acted on in good faith, is a good thing. Order 37 is just unethical from the beginning.
