Why would a non-force-user use a melee weapon? (Vibroblades, etc)

Lightsaber plasma is enveloped in powerful elctromagnetic feilds. they don't release alot of heat unless struck by something more substantial than air.

its the reason Lightsabers have to be modified to work submerged in water.

non forcesuers can use lightsabers provided the lightsaber crystal has been properly attuned by a skilled force sensative. Improprly tuned or flawed crystals lead to...accidents.

Non force users should not weild lightsabers because the neglagble weight of the blade will result in grevious self injury in the best case senario.

Though cyborgs, and individuals on preformance enhancing spice have been able to do so due to their enhcancements.
