But hey, at least Sentinels *have* lightsabers. That phantom blaster thing really grates me.
Is the rationale that it would be silly for those carrying sniper rifles or assault cannons to point their main weapon at everything?
This thing honestly bothers me more than the dual lightsaber thing, it seems so silly that those of my characters keep pointing their extremely non-threatening pea-shooters at their targets in cutscenes. Especially since those handguns are never, ever used in other circumstances.
