Much like Duncan, Teg value honor and loyalty...if not a hero of Dune, he nonetheless have heroic qualities as a character...

You must also keep in mind, Teg is a product of the BG. Teg wanting to leave the BG would be like wanting to leave humanity. He is what he is.

Yeah its not like he considered saying no when they asked him to come out of retirement. He was not happy about it but he never considered flat out saying no when the resquest for his recommision came to him.

He knows they must have a good reason to call him back into service.

But taking this backwards in the conversation a bit, in GEoD, namelly the chapter of the BG audience with Leto II, there's a dialogue piece where one of the BG (i forget wich) says that without him (Leto) humanity would need them and Leto replies "Truth at last".
I'm probably going to strech this but i cant help but think that maybe Leto intended them to take a sort of peace keeping role during and after the famine times, a sort of equalizing force in the chaos that ensued after his death. There's always a lot of dehumanizing in war times and the BG are the best to deal with such crisis.

"You would have me believe that the Butlerian Jihad survives among the
Sisterhood?"
"We do not trust the unknown which can arise from imaginative technology,"
Anteac said.
Luyseyal leaned toward him. "The lxians boast that their machine will transcend
Time in the way that you do it, Lord."
"And the Guild says there's Time-chaos around the lxians,'* Leto mocked. "Are we
to fear all creation, then?"
Anteac drew herself up stiffly.
" I speak truth with you two," Leto said. " I recognize your abilities. Will you
not recognize mine?"
Luyseyal gave him a curt nod. "Tleilax and Ix make alliance with the Guild and
seek our full cooperation."
"And you fear Ix the most?"
"We fear anything we do not control," Anteac said.
"And you do not control me."
"Without you, people would need us!" Anteac said.
"Truth at last!" Leto said. "You come to me as your Oracle and you ask me to
put your fears to rest."

That's one of my favorite chapters in all the books. I wish would could have had more of RM Anteac.
