He used the double bladed saber along with his own for surprise value. It's not something the Sith trained to fight against. It's random and unorthodox. This allowed him to buy more time.

From a tactical sense (this is all speculation at this point) Malgus was fighting the Jedi. He felt his blows first hand. He probably figured he out powered him. So using two lightsabers wouldn't be a hindrance in this fight. Why did he kill him so fast when before he was "struggling?" my theory is he has been intending to kill his master. So he wasn't fighting his fullest because he didn't want his master to know what he was capable of.

At the same time he might have felt his master was holding back as well. Once his master was impaled.. the need to hold back was no longer there. So he went all out. Not to mention he was probably empowered and fueled with the hatred that a Jedi not only killed his master but did so before he himself could.
+ Jedi's come fatigued calling on the force 2 fight and battling 2 sith would use alot of energy plus throwing all them huge items.

I really enjoyed the whole clip.

+1 This guy understands the message of the Trailer so perfectly. He understands how the sith are and it makes perfect sense the way that malgus thinks.

Well, there was damage to the outer hull of the ship. Some of the station's structure fell on it in the attack. It is his ship, but the damage could have rendered it inoperable. Thus the question "Will she fly?".

As for the OP's question, the smuggler knows it will fly, for the reason that Kartikeya mentioned: it's his ship. He knows what that sort of damage would possibly do to it. He also knows what "unregistered upgrades" have been made to the ship, and can reasonably assess the damage from the outside.

This, except I totally bought it!
What I want: 1) Dual spec for me and my comps 2) missions where I fight with all of my comps at once, we are a team 3) playable comp-only missions 4) Free flight PVE and PVP Space combat (i.e. X-Wing multiplayer) 5) Instanced areas that change based on our story, sand-box areas that are open.

I was explaining to my brother that the more lightsabers involved the cooler it becomes. I remember as a kid basically drooling when Darth Maul had his dual ended lightsaber, everyone instantly was talking about who ****** that was. All this trailer did was make it three blades worth in two hands.

All we need now is a guy dual wielding those and bam, rule of cool fulfilled.

Then you'll have some sith come along wielding three... waitaminute. Darth Traya already did that!
