Hey, this is probably been posted about before, but why can't you move while you're doing a combo in mutiplayer mode? I think it's retarded. They should immediately patch this... Thoughts?

They did it for the sake of balance.

A LOT of the moves from single player are different in multiplayer or removed.

Notice that a lot of moves go into a fixed view or slow motion in SP, but in MP they do not.

A lot of moves that use Force mana in MP don't use any in SP (can you say "spammy?" I knew you could!).

The point is that in SP you don't have to worry about balance so much (since you're vastly more powerful than most opponents anyway and you progress in a linear fashion from weak weapons and powers to uber weapons and powers) and npc's don't complain if you just use one move over and over again against them. Plus they're more likely to fall for the same move over and over again, but that's another story...

You simply can't expect MP to be identical to SP. It hasn't been like that since Mysteries of the Sith (1998).

The advantage of the blue kata in SP was the freedom of movement compared to the others, in MP it's the only one where you don't move at all.
