Gear should NOT be the primary factor in determining whether a Jedi is tank,damage, healer.. "Skills" using Force Power should be though.
You get more FORCE abilities as you level up, and your FORCE abilities get stronger as you level up.
Not to mention your FORCE abilities change depending on what tree you follow.
The game is exactly as you want it, the force defines what attack and strategies you use. The thing is you're still at the beginning when you only have basic attacks.

As far the RP aspect of Jedi being able to magically slice through anything with their glow sticks. Heed the advice others gave and quit now. You won't get it, and nobody here wants it.

What I'm saying here is, what the hell happened to the FORCE? I mean the "other" star wars games all seemed to respect the power of a jedi. HELLO, LIGHTSABERS-THAT-CUT-THROUGH-ANYTHING??? What happened to that?

So, I think it's pretty clear I'm dissatisfied with jedi development in this game. To me, it's exactly the same as playing HALO with the melee sword. That's exactly what it is; except I don't get to pick up a weapon.

The story and lore are great...Thumbs up there. But Jedi are not really Jedi. just cannon fodder with glow sticks.
The sword in Halo is godmode if you know how to use it. That fact that you talk about it like it's bad leads me to believe your melee problems are just user error.

So in short, you want to be god-mode jedi? eeerrrmmmmmm, no. No you cannot. It's called balancing, not "want an easy win? laugh at your opponents as a super power jedi mwahahaha!"

If that was the case, nobody would even think of being a trooper/bh etc

It's called balancing.

Yeah in PvE the game heavily favors ranged classes for Ops bosses. I agree that sometimes it is ridiculous how melee classes are gimped. But that's not relevant here.

As if to compensate for that, the game heavily favors melee classes in 50 PvP. The only people my Carnage mara can't jump and rip apart right away are snipers/gunslingers but even for that I have Force Camo, so I can sneak up on them.

You don't really hear this from me, in fact I've never said this before, but it really does seem like that you have a L2P issue. (But as you've said it yourself, you're only level26 or something, so I'm holding out my hope for you.)
