The word "toujours" is confusing here. Why doesn't Bastien respond in the imperfect to express his habitual actions and say "je faisais toujours comme ça" instead of saying "j'ai toujours fait comme ça..."? He has "always" left his clothes on the floor and still intends to do so. Shouldn't this scenario be expressed by the imperfect? Thanks for any help.

Here, it is because if he had said -
"Je faisais toujours comme ça "
it could be construed as it being what he 'used to do' but doesn't do anymore which isn't what is meant here.
Hope this helps!
