How would it mess up the marauder and sentinel attacks. they both use two lightsabers which is essentially a non connected double-bladed saber. So why not allow the marauders and the sentinels the oportunity to switch between using 2 sabers or using one double saber

Give a real good look at Kira's animations while she fights with a Twin blade and a single, yes the animations are the same. But it doesn't look right.

Juggs are modeled based on Vader, hence the single light saber, and heavy armor.
Assasins are modeled based on darth maul, hence the double bladed lightsaber, and the cool seethe animation.
Marauders are modeled based on asajj ventress with two sabers.
Sorcs are modeled based on palpatine, hence the emphasis on lightning spam.

IMO each class has access to the right weapon, and this makes each class feel unique.

I was kind of jealous, though, when I saw a Sith warrior NPC on Taris (I think) with a double bladed saber.

This isn't the first time this idea has been presented. And it won't be the last. But I'm still against it. Warriors & Knights use single bladed sabers. Sometimes just one, sometimes two. But the single bladed sabers are the ones that I always associate with Luke Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi or Darth Vader.

i wouldn't be against the idea but what i think they should do instead is make a warrior type of class that uses dbble saber and is mostly only melee attacks so we get a new story and the option to be a dbble bladed melee heavy class to make everyone happy:P

yes it would but i believe his point was he wanted a class or w/e that uses dbble bladed sabers that are melee heavy yes i know assassins are melee but they are more like 50% melee and 50% force when it comes to attacks and animations at least if you are madness or deception never played a tank sin
