The Jedi have been known to punish individuals by making them listen to Lady Gaga.

As far as I've been able to tell, they say,"NO! That's a bad Jedi!"

The most I've ever heard as punishment is being kicked out of the order, stripped of title and exiled. I didn't know it was possible to take someone's powers from them.

Though I suspect if/when possible they use governing authorities laws as a loophole to allow capital punishment/imprisonment. Capture said rogue Jedi, and if treason was committed against the Republic they'd allow them to "fairly" stand trial for their crimes and respect the ruling of the Republic. Even if the ruling was execution.

How much more punishment could you ask for?

Being a Jedi is living torture.
apart from the fact that the 'force' you speak about is actually everything, including the person you would love/have sex with, romance and so on, and nothing that exists, including concepts and acts are outside it.

and when you are one with the force, you are one with everything. meaning, you are romancing/loving/having sex/fighting/laughing/making up/sad/happy/angry/calm all at the same time.

like perpetual state of bliss that is described in some hindu teachings - you dont need anything, because you become one with everything you need.

that was just something script writers for the game star wars knights of the old republic : the sith lords came up with in the game's story.

its not canon.

That would be awesome if it could be done.

I think that part of KOTOR2 is still C-Canon, but regardless, it's not just from KOTOR2 at all. Nomi Sunrider cut Ulic Qel-Droma off from the force, and the entire Yuuzhan Vong species was severed from the force.

- I spent $149.95 on a video game with no release date, and all I got was the key to the executive washroom.

As for actual punishments, I think most of them are just slaps on the wrist and embarrassment in front of the Council, however they could always kick you out.
They didn't retcon it. That was what happened in the game. She cut herself off, but it was instinctive and she didn't realized she did it. The Jedi Councils sin was not telling her the truth about what happened.
They knew, they didn't actually do it to her.

Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

When this form of punishment is mentioned in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, it is said to be an old form of punishment. It is likely that the Jedi Order at some point lost the knowledge that was necessary to use the Force in such a manner.

For the most part, it seems that those former Jedi are left alone, though I wouldn't be surprised if the Order attempted to keep watch over them, since they would still have abilities that most individuals in the galaxy would not have.

Yes. The children would have been taken to the Temple, and raised by the Order. Removing children from their families and raising them from as early an age as possible entirely inside the Order was the modus operandi of the Jedi Order of that time.

Indeed. There was no retcon at all involved in Meetra Surik's loss of connection to the Force. Every time you meet a member of the Jedi Council in that game, each one's response to being asked "why did you do this to me?" is a variation on "You think we did this? We did not." The only person in TSL who claimed the Council had severed Surik's connection to the Force as punishment for following Revan and Malak during the Mandalorian Wars was Kreia - and she was not to be trusted, as she herself would tell you.
