Eh why not? Like a regular lightsaber is any more "believable". I imagine if you can keep the blade from reaching out to infinity then you can bend it a bit as well.

God no.. There are some things in the lore that should not be changed.


It's cheesy.

Firstly, nice Photoshop in the OP.

Not saying I love the katana lightsaber, but it's no more cheesy than the double-bladed lightsaber staff. Talk about impractical. For that matter, the concept of duel-wield lightsabers can die in a fire, as far as I'm concerned. Cause, you know, the only thing better than wielding a single, near-weightless blade that can cut through you as if through butter -- because that situation isn't absurdly dangerous enough -- the only thing better than that is wielding two, amirite?

Lucas threw the saber staff into Phantom Menace for shock value and/or toy sales. It's been all downhill from there.
