Also, the colour crystal except for red, were natural, the red lightsaber crystal was of synthetic design and caused the odd short out. Perhaps they kept their original sabers purely out of being more reliable.
hell, there were even some jedi wh remained jedi who had red lightsabers.. it is just stereotypical, but not mandatory, for the bad siders to use red.
Well i'm not really familiar with Freedon Nadd and Exar Kun as Sith Lords. I never read the comics or novels that had them in it. Only Star Wars novels I read was back in High school, the Timothy Zahn Heir to the Empire trilogy.
