IMO desaan trying to torture the info out of them is too risky, the plan he did do had a lot more chance of success.
kyle was a jedi from JK1 and jan was there also, so shes used to him being a jedi. a jedi is typically always a jedi and if you listen to a few of the jokes she makes to kyle in this regards, shes basically said "I knew you were a jedi since day one, its only you that never accepted it".
the saber throw...I guess I missed since I played single player through prior to playing multiplayer and I think I might have used throw once the entire time....so I'm not a great judge on how it should look. frankly I think its kinda corny for a jedi to be tossing around his saber every 5 seconds.
