Why in the movies did lucas always use the same colours for lightsabers?ie.blue, red, green, blue, purple are all ive seen. What about white or black with white glow in the middle? Yellow? Orange? what are your thoughts on this?

First of all, I believe there is no such thing as a black or white lightsaber (even though a Jedi type guy, in an EU book, put a diamond instead of a saber crystal, making his blade white, but when he turn on his lightsaber the crystal melted his lightsaber hilt), and also I don't know why GL hasn't had yellow or orange colored lightsabers, its probably one of those things that he just didn't think about much.

From what I understand.....at least for AOTC, GL did try to use yellow and orange sabers.

The problem with them was the fact that they didn't show up very well against the background [ie. Geonosis Arena]. They tented to blend in, rather then be defined.

So he only used the blue and the green because you could see them better.

GL reveals the world as a black - white place. ur either good or bad.

bad - red
good - blue/green

mace had a purple 1, but i think it has more to do with samuel´s naggin instead of a meanin which could be explained in epIII.

mace got the purple crystal when he was young. he saved a native (something like a stone man) on a planet (dunno wat it is) in an episode of the star wars tales comics
