Look, I really got to know this game to a point where I was unstoppable on the Sith Master difficulty, so I know if you're on Sith Warrior, following my strategy will earn you an easy victory.
Sorry to say, but I have to disagree with you.
I am now at ~80% through all trophies, and have completed the game on Warrior and Lord difficulties, both LS and DS. Am playing Master difficulty now, and it is actually no harder than Sith Lord, that I can tell.
Regardless, in the PS3 version, it does not matter how rapid your response time is, does not matter how fast you can mash the button. I have been unable to escape Vader's grip at any level beyond warrior.
I am not saying you are wrong Shem - we play on different consoles, and in general your game-play advice is excellent, but in this case I have to say, if Vader grips you on the PS3, take the ride. He can still be beaten, you just cannot beat his grip.
