Because I'd like more diversity and I don't like two huge lightsabers :L

Almost 3 years old and there are still no iconic / classic / traditional / prequel-style (pick any!) Jedi robes in the game! How come?

Also how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Shotos make me laugh to be honest. Unless you could play an Ugnaught or something, I can't see them being introduced.

Shorter weapon used for parrying is quite handy. Real world dual wielding usually involved a dagger in the left hand.

Parrying is not exactly a priority for a Sentinel... That would be for a Guardian and we all know they're single hilt based, since their other hand is busy with the Shield Generator.

What about as an alternative to the off-hand, then? It may not provide as much damage (if any), but would allow other force-using classes to dual wield. Although for saberstaff wielders, it would likely need to be restricted so they can only use it when wielding a regular lightsaber.

Real-world swords are heavy. Judging by the way Luke moved the light saber Kenobi handed him in IV, light sabers are nothing in terms of weight and wieldiness.

I always figured the only weight of a light saber is the hilt, I'm not sure if the laser/beam part actually adds any weight.
My initial thought would be to say the "light" part is weightless, like a RL laser beam - but then again it can block and such, which lasers can't really do.
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!

Dunno why all the negativity - shoto was utilized by a number of dual wielding characters in SW, including Ahsoka. They were also present in KotOR 2.

Ahsoka used one, which means it's canon. So you can't object that it wouldn't be "Star Wars".

Not objecting that it wouldn't be canon, I object because I think they look ridiculous.

Yeah, and I despised them there too.
Sorry I just think they look dumb, (unless you are playing Yoda species) and I would rather dual wield with 2 normal length sabers.
But in all fairness if they did make them I wouldn't use them, so it's not an issue.

I know right?? Which is where I think George was wrong. He said in a documentary somewhere that they would be extremely heavy with all the energy coming from the hilt and told the actors to act as such..I think he eventually changed his mind on that because that as it just goes against what you would normally think.
