I noticed that ... you get plenty of movement and detail ... just something nice in the background. I'm not so worried ... I've seen (played) RtCW and MoH:AA, which are supposed to 'just edge' JK2 in terms of graphics - and they are fantastic!
As for Splinter, it is clearly not 'Canon' ... in fact, if you check a cut scene from TPM, ObiWan had his saber 'on' when he landed in water on Naboo, burning out his power source - which is why he was running without his saber drawn. I have no idea what will happen in JK2, however.
