The black lightsabers simply dont exist in any form in the Star Wars universe, hence a fan that wont touch them is most likely a bigger star wars fan then the guy/gal who would.
I am sorry that George Lucas crapped on your parade. Let me introduce...

There's even a precedent for a multi-colored "rainbow" blade.

I'm a pretty huge fan. I welcome crazy lightsaber colors - in fact, I think that's one of the best ways to continually expand itemization and differentiate more prestigious gear.

Personally, I would love a dual-rainbow bladed lightsaber - that would be so intense.
3 sith surround jedi consular. "We've got you now..." The moment draws close, the air grows cold. An orange, two red and a purple lightsaber ignite. Suddenly, a shining myriad of colors overwhelm the seriousness of the scene, burning the brains of the sith slowly to a mush as painfully as can be... One of them screams, "WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!" The other mutters something about trains always departing but never arriving, and the last one stabbed himself immediately with his lightsaber to avoid the visions he knew were coming.

Yup.

Rainbow lightsabers.

Republic Wins, because the dark side cannot tolerate rainbow power. I should know.

I are jedi consular pony, my racial is the stare.
Flagging and getting flagged, all day every day.

Lol. Feel like we are in a bad mashup of Star wars meets Care Bears. I dont care what color the saber is, you cant defend yourself against my care bear stare.

You beat me to it.

Black lightsabers have also appeared in The Force Unleashed. I even remember hearing about an EU story that covered the mysterious Dark Jedi Yoda encountered on Dagobah (mentioned briefly in the Thrawn Trilogy, the one who's death created the Dark Side cave) who wielded a black-bladed lightsaber. But, since I have never seen any corroborating evidence for even the existence of this story, I do not cite it as canon.

Still, they exist in Star Wars, and claims to the contrary are simply misinformed.

That is very very insulting i think the black and blue lightsaber is awesome and i have read every book that has been published, just cause i think something is new and different in the star wars universe doesnt make me less of a fan

Thats like saying you want a rainbow brite unicorn mount, and a masterchief outfit, while calling yourself a Jedi.

No, it just means you are more anal about it. Who cares if it was in the original story? If I remember correctly there were only a couple different colors in the ORIGINAL story. More were added with each successive story.

Too bad this game isn't exclusively dedicated to fans, eh?

The more colors the better, I need to recruit some marauders so we can have a rave at the local cantina next time.
