I always play the game on easy first so I'll know what the hell is coming the next time around. Seems somewhat like a tactical advantage, right?
Not really. It was a mother to get through the second time on the hardest level. Took a lot longer than usual, even though I knew were I was going and what I needed to do. Which made it almost a totally different game experience than before. Because your really having to do things differently than the first time.
Although, playing easy the first time might be considered cheating in a way. Since I know what to expect the second time around. But then again, Jedi/Sith are supposed to be able to see the future, right?
Anyway, depends on how you look at it, I guess.
