However you are correct in the sense tthat the holograms from baefore the republic shouldnt have modern sabers they should have the ones with a powerpack on belt.
In my OP I did actually distinguish between protosabers (the ones with cables) and modern lightsabers. The holos in the game portray modern lightsabers.

Also, just so we are clear I was talking more about the holos than the statues which are supposed to be actual recordings.

As for it being an oversight. A Few years out I could understand. Even a few hundred. But, 20,000 years? That is a massive oversight!
