Uh...no. Why would I agree to that?
On my last play through of KotOR, I used Carth on the Star Forge where, equipped with two fully-upgraded Bargawin Assault Blades, he defeated Dark Jedi.
In terms of lightsabres, Revan was killing Rakata with one swipe so overall no - melee combat in KotOR was fine.
