• Construct your own lightsaber from fifteen different handles and six different blade colors. Utilize two sabers if you prefer or try the ultimate dual-bladed lightsaber made famous by Darth Maul.

And there's way more star wars fans that only know of Darth Maul than have any clue as to who Exar Kun is. Not everyone is an EU enthusiast.

DONT EVER CALL THEM DONKEY/KANGEROO...that is an insult to the star wars universe. and i think it is a little mean that Maul gets the glory when Kun was around first..i just hope it will be easy to implement our custom sabers made by us in stuff like Milkshape 3D.

Let's clarify something here for those Exar Kun lovers.

1. This is a Star Wars game
2. The majority of "Star Wars fans" are so because of the MOVIES, not the EU.
3. 100% of "Star Wars Fans" know who Darth Maul is, maybe 40% of those same fans know who Exar Kun is.
4. The developers are going with the larger fan base, if they said "You can even use the double bladed saber that Exar Kun made famous", over half of the "Star Wars Fans" would be like, "wtf?!? who the hell is exar kun?"

i must agree, altho i do agree that the idea was ripped off kun, darth maul is better known and would be the inspiration of why someone might use a light staff

my main :rolleyes: is at the fact they said it was ULTIMATE ??

the apprentice of the emp! was defeated against an ordinary and younger apprentise, obi wan. (well it was cut in half, if it were a genuine lightstaff it wouldn't have been opperative, but obiwan won the saber fight but was cheap shotted with a push (film codes to make the sith more 'dirty'))

he lost because he did not have a donkey or kangaroo to make a fast get away on.

Uh....... Who actually cares, it's just one sentence and they didn't even get the name of the lightsaber right anyway (they called it a dual saber instead of Lightstaff)
I would just ignore it if i were you :rolleyes:

iron I was giving you credit, donkey is what I think it looks like.
Kangaroo is your opinion.

It has now been deemed a hybrid donkey/kangaroo by Lucas and will be updated on the official site later tonight.

Exar Kun was a great donkey/kangaroo jedi from the planet Donkaroo (no relation to Dooku) - who kept forgetting to stab guys with the pointy glowy end. His brilliant solution was to make both ends pointy glowy.

With a bit of reasearching I found this link it will explain who the Exakun guy is.

Aparantly he is a sithlord who built an army and hunted ppl.

You know what's a big load of bulls*#$? That Darth Maul kicked the bucket the way he did :mad:. Anyways he's not retarded he's just quiet and reserved, but you wouldn't like him when he's angry.....:p.

Mr.Joshua

Um, Maul's downfall was taking on two Jedi at once when he hadn't been fully tested yet. I mean hell he killed a Jedi Master and nearly killed Obi-wan who is supposed to be one of the greatest Jedi of all time, he trains the chosen one and his son. Maul just bit off more than he could chew, he was young and impetuous.

george lucas never admitted exar kun's existence in the movies so he DOESN'T exist, when it comes down to it, whatever was in the movies, is the FINAL say in ANYTHING. in this case, DARTH MAUL is the ONLY person to wield the double bladed light saber, i don't give a crap about EU but, when did kun use the double bladed saber? was it before EP1 came out? i'm just curious cuz it was my understanding that nobody in the EU used a double blade, but i guess i'm wrong

Exar Kun was probably the most powerful Sith Lord in existence, and yes he has a lightstaff/double saber.

I can honestly say when I think of lightstaffs/double sabers, I think of Darth Maul. I'm just not a big follower of Exar Kun....

and I believe Exar Kun was created before Maul.

Exar Kun is pre-TPM. Think KOTOR era, which is to take place 3000-5000 years before TPM. Exar Kun was Sith Lord when the Sith's were more than just master and apprentice. I believe he started the "Rule of 2" after the last great Jedi-Sith war in which him and his apprentice were the only Sith that survived. He's then killed but uses the Force to lock his spirit on Yavin 4 in the Massassi Temple and is later awakened during the Jedi Academy Trilogy and seduces Kyp Durron and nearly kills Luke, etc etc.

FYI: LFL's definition of Canon is anything that bares the LFL symbol and trademark. It's just GL that says only the Movies matter. However he did take many things from EU to into the prequels.

Ironic that your avatar is a zabrak. But, Maul did make it famous. He wasn't the first to use it, but he did make it famous.

Crowy
07-11-2003, 06:41 AM
but they could have made it sometihng like "dual bladed saber made famous by sith exar kun and darth maul" or sometihng to that effect...

Mr.Joshua
07-11-2003, 06:47 AM
Sigh.

Exar Kun didn't make it famous. I've already told you. 100% of Star Wars fans know Darth Maul and his double-bladed saber. Only 40% know of Exar Kun.

Crowy
07-11-2003, 06:51 AM
but not 100% of star wars fans are a fan of the new stuff... i know alot of people who dispise maul...

i tihnk exar kun would be worth a mention though, and im a huge fan of the zabrak race, especially eeth koth.... so thats why i have a zabrak in my avatar

Shotokan
07-11-2003, 07:22 AM
The "made famous by Darth Maul" is totally relevant. It WAS made famous by Maul. He was the first Jedi seen on screen to use it, and not all people actually take the time to read EU books like you and me. So the statement made is indeed true.

Crowy
07-11-2003, 07:23 AM
true as it may be, exar should still get a mention in my point of view...

Boba Rhett

Perhaps they should have if they were writing up the history of the double bladed saber....

This is just a game note. Nothing to piss yourself over.

My gawd. All this fuss for what? The dual-bladed lightsaber was made famous by Darth Maul whether you like it or not. Fullstop.

Khier
07-11-2003, 07:48 AM
Even if Darth Maul bit off more than he could chew it still sucks he had to die like that :(. Either way, the way Obi Wan got him was just....not cool....you'd think after all the flippity floppity acrobatics and etc. he could at least duck. As for who should get the honourable mention: Darth Maul. Period. Several people have brought up that Exar is just not popular enough. :)

Crowy
07-11-2003, 07:49 AM
all the fuss is caused cause i worded myself wrong.... all i meant is that maul shouldnt be the only one known for it in MY opinion...

Boba Rhett

So I guess they should have written their brief mention of a game feature more like this,


Construct your own lightsaber from fifteen different handles and six different blade colors. Utilize two sabers if you prefer or try the ultimate dual-bladed lightsaber made famous by Darth Maul - but which was also used by a made up Jedi in the ****ty Star Wars Expanded Universe that goes by the name of Exar Kun who used one long before Darth Maul did, so we felt obligated to mention him. In case you have no clue who Exar Kun is, please visit here (http://jediencyclopedia.150m.com/exarkun.html)





But wait! Why didn't they mention which Jedi inspired the hilt designs!?!

Wait again!!!! What colors do I get to choose from and which color means what? Do they even mean anything?!

Why didn't they mention that Boc used two sabers in Jedi Knight?!! He should be mentioned!!

What'd Darth Maul do to make them famous? They should tell us all these things in a brief mention of a game feature!! What kind of sick men are these to not mention a small not well known character in their brief game feature description? Do they have no scruples?!!1 HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD?!?!?

07-11-2003, 08:09 AM
