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.
