Regarding Starkiller's Lightsaber Style

The way he holds his lightsaber is known as reverse grip. It's surprisingly common in many armed physical combat styles in the real world. The explanation for Starkiller using reverse grip is simply that he prefers this style. Ahsoka Tano held her lightsaber in a similar way before she became Anakin Skywalker's Padawan. He most likely holds it this way to block blaster fire directed behind him, and he can vary easily flip it around to standard grip for combat (which he will actually do any time you attack with his saber in the game). I just thought I'd clear that up so that people can stop being pissed off/confused about his lightsaber style.
