Stealth Force users = Jedi Shadow and Sith Assassin
Dual Lightsabers = Jedi Sentinels and Sith Marauders

The Jedi Shadow and Sith Assassin classes use lightsaber staves.

So what do you want more: stealth gameplay or two lightsabers? 'Cuz you can't have both.

No stealth class wields two lightsabers (maybe you meant double-bladed lightsaber?). The Sith Assassin and Jedi Shadow are mechanically the same class, so the question is: Do you want to play Republic (Jedi Shadow) or Empire (Sith Assassin).

Sith assassin is more sexy. Isn't that all that matters?

Lightning. LIGHTNING. LIGHTNING!!!!!

Although to be fair, Assassin is heavy on the melee attacks.... Thrash is central to Madness dps (Thrash getting +50% crit damage, procs Raze, and higher melee crit chance), and Maul is central to Deception.

Of course, Darkness is light on melee endgame, since you want to be using mainly Shock and Wither for Harnessed Darkness stacks... but that's only after level 40 (since you REALLY need Wither to make the most of the Harnessed Darkness talent... Shock is EXPENSIVE).
