I don't really like the look of the basic sabers, I have to say. They are a bit too... clunky in my honest opinion.

And yeah, if there's one thing Clone Wars did oh so very right it was lightsaber sounds. The audio in general is quite impressive for a TV show.

Also, Mauls voice actor on that show is great ;X

What they lack in appearance, they make up for how awesome sounding they are; It's a trade off I guess.

Well, we're all hoping it's a bug (well maby not all of us, but most people seem to think it's not a good sound anyway)

Those two samples and the lightsaber sound like the pitch was turned way higher than the original sound and slapped "done". I'm all for different variants of sound, but just changing the pitch to a comically high level is not one I would suggest.

In my opinion, I expect SW sounds to sound "beefy". More treble and bass and low end. The negative is, if the frequency is within a certain range it makes my head rattle with my headphones on. Then I can't play for hours and hours at a time.

Wow, those sound weak. I've changed lightsabers based on the sounds they make. Not that either one sounded bad, it was just preference. How about another mod socket on weapons to give them the sound you like? The items could be statless and just change the sound. Unfortunately that might lead to cartel items costing 2000k.

Im still using the Electro Charge Rifle I picked up on The Esseles. After finding that the gun was available from the Specialty Good Planetary Comm vendor on Coruscant (and the Dromund Kaas Spaceport), all my rifles since have been one of them.

I'm praying to The Force that they don't give the great-looking guns from the upcoming Nar Shaddaa event these chincey sound effects! It's bad enough they gave em to the giant Rakghoul blaster/sniper rifles, which sound comically crappy for such large guns.

Yeah, I sincerely hope they don't screw up the sounds for the casino event guns.

They have shown the capacity for good sounds before (mainly the vanilla guns, but guns like the Primordial Assault Cannon come to mind as well).
