^^What'd you guys think about that system? It would add a whole new element to lightsaber design, and you could gather the required parts to decrease the penalties.
How about this...have double-bladed sabers that can be used with only one or both blades ignited depending on how the player wished to use it for combat like the way that Maul used his in Ep. 1.
