Well, first an foremost it should be yellow, not green (remember Kyle is in the light side -----> MOTS) :)

Maybe he builds a new one, as part of his trainig as some people has said here before. I know that a jedi feels ('connects with the weapon better') better with his own built saber than with another one.

Maybe LEC has do this because now people can use various colors in SP, --> green, yellow, orange (MOTS' yellow :confused:), purple and now blue. It could have been better if you coul choose your new saber's color in JO... :(

At least random color. When you build a lightsaber you cannot know the color (but it isn't always blue :D)

I think that would be a decent idea. Better than the blue, although it is pretty kewl :D

you are right... i was thinking in luke when he make his saber, he did the crystal with a machine, and they did't said anything about the color of the crystal(and i think that luke was wondering wich color it will be..)... I think in the Jedi Academy Trilogy they say something about the colors..
Besides, you can always choose the color of the crystal, can't you?

Didn't we talk abut this already. Anyway reasons for the colour of the saber would be given in the game, personally I like blue.:)

I like blue bladed sabers personally, don't know why but it's always been a personal preference or mine since I was a youngin watching ESB or whatever. I never liked green bladed sabers as much, but I think yellow is another great choice. Since I prefer to be a lighty jedi normally I try to stick to more natural colors that are peaceful, and don't show anger or aggression. Kind of ironic considering the avatar I use.

with the lightsaber the crystal does determine the color but the crystal's color is NOT the main determine the color of the blade, but the type of crystal is the main determiner of the color

Yeah, it makes no sense that Kyle should have a blue lightsaber in JK2 single player (is this confirmed? I thought at Quakecon they implied that it would fit into continuity?).

Why? Well if we follow MotS, Kyle had an orange saber. If he gave this saber to Luke, it would make sense he'd get an orange saber back.

If we ignore MotS and say it was JK, then it was Yun's gold/yellow saber (since we're assuming he took the light path and the green saber he got from Rahn, who got it from Yoda according to the novels, was destroyed) which he'd get back.

And if we just assume he took the Dark Path in JK, then it would be green.

But not blue, unless he fashions a new saber (contradicting the notion that he gives and then gets his saber back from Luke) that is blue, and then gives that saber up to Luke (implying he made yet another saber after the events in MotS, or MotS is ignored and he made his first saber a blue one instead of orange).

I'm kind of bored of blue anyway... Anakin's saber, Obi-Wan's saber, etc etc.

I think Luke probably destroys the old lightsaber as it is a memory of the past. Kyle will construct a new one to prove is new changed ways.

Seems like the apprentices always get the blue lightsabers while the masters get the other colored ones.

Actually, at the end of MOTS, Kyle had a red saber, presumably recovered from the Sith ruins. What happened to the orange one is anybody's guess.

Dark Kyle in the game has a red one but in the final movie he has the orange one.

PS: I think that the orange in MOTS its Yun's but they darkened a little the color to give people the opportunity to use another color...:confused:
