i kinda like the build up to getting a lightsaber... gives me a chance to try other weapons. Lightsabers seems to be the "end all" of the weapons.
I liked the buildup to a lightsaber, where Sith and Jedi-wannabes had to make do with a sword for the time being, because it gave a certain sense of vulnerability to the main character, particularly in TSL, and doubly so when Visas shows up on the Ebon Hawk to kick your ass up and down the say-sen with a lightsaber and you have just a wimpy sword.
