There's little I can do other than run away or get in there at this point, so I start to charge up to him and...

He does a series of 1k, 2k, 1k damage hits, quickly bringing me down to 3/4 health.

Finally get into range and start wailing on him for him to just sit in cover and carry on bashing me about.

I go down when he's at half health.

WHY?!

not the smartest approach. As a Shadow i use stealth or hit them with stun to close my gap.

Snipped the rest as you are already dead before you engage due to your first fundamental error:

You were not in stealth mode.

The first (and last) sign a Gunslinger should have of your existence is your lightsaber sticking out the front of their chest.

Hehe... I wonder what will he say at the fact that at level 48 we can request a planetary bombardment from the Battlecruisers in the orbit.

Sorry mate, big guns>sticklights.

Now, since we established this fact, you can launch a preemptive qq strike at Sages - they use swords too, so you may have a case there.
