Infact Sidious was suppose to be the ONLY force user ever able to use lighting.
You forgot about Count Dooku lol.

Vader's title is Dark Lord of the Sith in the original books and screenplay. And he doesnt need to shoot lightning. He can kick your butt with a sabre, and his force abilities without it.

No this was before Count Dooku and the PT, Sidious was suppose to be the only force user ever to use lighting. But then later on they changed it.

He lost some of his midichlorians when his arms and legs got cut off.

As mentioned Vader is mostly cybernetic, which is why he can't fully utilize all force powers. One of the books also does an excellent job of explaining why Sidious would never waste his time training Vader on how to fully use the dark side as (according to some books) you have to be mostly organic or have a life force going through the body.

It would have been very cool to see how Vader would have turned out if he had the full access to the force before taking a lava bath.

Totally, just look to other Sith who weren't shown using lightning but were definitely Sith; Darth Maul stands out in my head. Also, one might believe that since Anakin would have become twice as powerful as the Emperor had he not been reconstructed, he probably could have been able to use it eventually. But he ****** that up :P
