Fair warning, all. For reasons that are not yet obvious to me, sometimes dismemberment seems to NOT work. Normally, a quick-save, quit and restart will remedy this condition. It might also be related to seniority. Maybe dismemberment just doesn't work on the lower four levels, and you don't really see it until you get to Hoth. I got nothing on the lower three levels, but on Hoth I was a sushi chef. I will experiment further and report.
Me? I just live here. The Sith lord is upstairs in 3C.
