Will Republic *ever* get Purple crystals?

Purple is not a Sith-only color. Hell, Samuel L. used one throughout the films as a Jedi master. If the color had some kind of 'evil-only' affiliation, do you think a diehard Jedi loyalist like Windu would have used one?

Some people feel strongly about crystal colors; others don't. But count me amongst the ranks of those who do. Purple has been, for the past decade or so, 'my' Jedi's color, in RP, costuming, and yes, even KotOR. When there are Jedi everywhere running around with red sabers (which aren't canon-breaking either, but you can make a stonger case for red being 'wrong' for the Jedi than you can purple), why am I denied purple? And no, magenta and light blue are not satisfactory replacements -- they shouldn't even be considered 'replacements' because no color should be locked onto one faction only.

Oh, and while we're at it, why are curved-hilted (Form II Makashi) sabers Sith-only, too? Could it be that Bioware's programmers really thought that this type of saber was unique to the Sith based on Count Dooku? You guys do know he used a curved-hilted saber as a Jedi, too, right? Like purple crystals, it's not like a curved hilt is somehow unique to the Sith.

I am tired of exclusivity dominating what I can and cannot do as a character. No color -- in this case, Purple and Light Blue -- should be a the 'catch all' endgame color for one faction or another. No style of lightsaber design -- particularly one that is hardly more affiliated with the Sith than it is the Jedi -- should be restricted to one faction. Please go down to the art department and knock some heads. If these people don't understand Star Wars, educate them. Or fire them. I don't really care anymore.

I hope so. I want a freaking purple crystal for my shadow =/

They need to make all crystals available to both factions. I hope they do through rare drops etc from various places.

Lol, no, I am sorry. He used a purple crystal. Have you seen the magenta crystals in game? The color is pink. Bioware might call it magenta, but it's pink. Windu used a purple crystal.

Are you colourblind? Mace Windu had a purple lightsaber not a magenta one.

No, no, guys, clearly, clearly Windu had a pink lightsaber in the films. We must have all missed it.

I wasn't aware there were purple lightsaber crystals for Sith player characters. I've only seen them on NPCs. Where do players get them?

I have "tangerine" color crystals in my blasters. HA! Good luck finding more of those in-game.
