You can easily make your own jedi outfits that are very similar to the movie ones.

As for your points:
1) You don't have to wear tight pants. You don't have to wear pants at all really. (also, the movie outfits have semi-tight pants, sure not skin-tight, but still not baggy pants. And they are tucked into the boots so all you basically see is the knee)
2) yeah, must be rough on you having that belt outside the robe...
3) Also, pretty nitpicky (like the 2 first points).

To compare to the other classes, if these 3 points are your main complaints, then you got off easy.
The other classes have nowhere near the ability to look like their "role models" from the movies.
You try to get a decent looking Boba/Jango Fett, Clone Trooper or Smuggler.
Good luck.
I'll be able to pick out 10 things that are hugely different from the movies on each one.

The reason I even comment on these demands (because they are not requests, they are pretty much demands) is because they are so damned petty.
Seriously. Listen to yourselves for a second here.

"The pants are too tight. The sleaves are too short. The belt is on the outside of the robe."
I'm surprised you arent complaining about the boots being too short too since obi-wans boots go all the way up to the knee.

Do you really need to create a clone of the jedi in the movies to be able to enjoy the game?
If you do, then there is something seriously wrong here.
I see people playing bounty hunters, smugglers, troopers and sith without feeling the need to look exactly like they did in the movies.
They are satisfied with looking pretty close but still different.
I have to say, page after page youve gone to great lengths to argue against something that can in no way effect or harm your gaming experience. Youve spent a decent amount of time trying to derail the efforts of those interested in this for no other reason than to either troll or because you have an inherent need to argue with others.

How in the world is these traditional Jedi robes causing you so much frustration that you NEED to battle it out with those asking for it?

Heck..Ive seen no one state they need to be free, no ones stated they shouldnt go on the CM, no one has argued that Jedi dont wear armor as youve accused people of stating. Theyve only commented that traditionally Jedi dont typically use armor and that even in the promotional work from Bioware most of the Jedi wear little to no Armor and that they are indeed wearing nothing more then robes.

As a Community Manager has already stated, theyre working on it. So your arguments against those in support of this is futile. And theres no telling if the Developers took note of what was being asked or if they felt there wasnt enough traditional Jedi wear in the game. But its likely that both influenced their decision to do so.

Claiming that theres gear in game that is similar enough for you to accept doesnt mean that thats the final word on it or that everyone else should follow your cue. Its Star Wars, and more importantly its the Jedi. People interested in RPing or simply looking the part are going to be critical of this. And they SHOULD be as the Developers can just as easily go off the beaten trail entirely and start adding all sorts of craziness as if they havent already. This game is just as much ours as it is Bioware/EA/LucasArts as we the customers can demand/request/refuse things regarding this game.

Theres nothing objectionable about the robes. Theres absolutely no reason to argue it in any sort of manner besides the need to feel as if youre standing between someone and what they want.

Id give you some advice to give it a rest but I know already that as long as this topic is alive and going, as long as those robes arent in game yet. Youll do your best to come in here and remind people you needlessly disagree with them.
