Something against dual-wielding in the movies?

Why is it that in the films there is hardly no Jedi/Sith dual-wielding? Or was it just a rare form of combat?


Yes, I know of Anakin dual-wielding for a few seconds, but other than that I mean primarily Jedi/Sith using two lightsabers by default.

im sure this is going to get flamed, but watch the clone wars cartoon. the sith apprentice is a dual weilder and for part of the series so is anakin's apprentice. im guessing its just rare that there's a dual weilder, kind of an ambidextrous thing.

Because it is extremely hard to fight effectively with two weapons.

Actually, if you look reeeeeaaaaaal closely, there's a Jedi running around dual wielding in the background during the Battle of Geonosis in AoTC. You see him for like a second or two at most.

You can use both your hands wielding 1 blade. This allows you to strike harder.

I meant the movies, sorry for the confusion.

Really? I had no idea, I may have to look into that mainly because the slow bulky fighting of say, a Juggernaut doesn't appeal to me. The Marauder is more my style as they seem to fight with agile.

trying to help you out, don't be a douche about it. and if you look at any war or history book. its very rare someone successfully pulls off the dual weild, be it gun or sword. yes movies have alot of it, but thats just because it looks cool.

Not being a douche, lol. Everyone who plays this game isn't one. I just forgot to clear up in my original post that I meant the 6 movies.

I'd like to vouch for this answer. My little brother uses his toy saber with two hands against me, while I use only one hand. If I weren't an expert martial artist, his two-handed little-kid strength would easily beat back my one hand. And he doesn't even understand proper leverage.
