For the last time, there is a reason the skin is in the game! The skin is used for the first-person view of the saber! This has been stated in many different threads, but everyone keeps ignoring it. The statement that "Raven guys said that it wasn't supposed to be in the game and shouldn't be accessible" is either a misquote or a flat-out lie, since as I said, the skin is supposed to be there, it just wasn't meant to be used in multiplayer.
The only reason this is a problem is that a bunch of lamers decided they should use the skin to their advantage. Since this has proved to be such a problem, I'm certain Raven will fix this in the first patch, most likely just making it an invalid skin in multiplayer.
Now that I think about it, this may be the reason that you can't use the lightsaber in first-person mode in MP, as I believe the first person LS command just changes your skin to that one in SP. There's no good way to tell, though, so I'm not sure.

There is no peace, there is anger.
There is no fear, there is power.
There is no death, there is immortality.
There is no weakness, there is the Dark Side.
