Well for example MP has got players from different era's, which cant fight each other unless they can flow walk lol, whereas the SP game will probably have a canon plotline (Be it Darkside, Neutral or Lightside) thus being a higher lvl of canon

Why are you so concerned about realism in a game where you use light sabers, fly across the Galaxy faster than the speed of light, shoot lasers, and control an omnipotent energy?

Google "Han shot first", Ret-Conn's are going on all the time . Joking aside, if the Vader using Lightning is just in MP then it's completely acceptable IMO.

Yes, and MP are done for fun, not realism. Cause normally Jedi or Sith would not call someone using a gun a "cheating m00b", and Jedis/Siths don't run around carrying flags/yasalamaris from one place to another, and none of them would squeal like those annoying chipmunk kids with balls between a garlic grinder.

And most of those things you've mentioned are exactly the reason why I don't play online

Vader never had his training fully completed by Palpatine because palps wanted to hold onto power for as long as possible. On top of that, you have to have conduits of living tissue to be able to use force lightning. So Vader is screwed on two fronts.

In MOTS, you could play as Vader in multilayer and outfit him with force lightning. Sure it didn't really fit into "reality," but it was still fun.

Do you actually believe that Star Wars has any real realism to it? Star Wars breaks a lot of rules....

*Sigh*

Do we really need to go over all this again? Didn't we argue this to death three months ago?

hello? duel mode! it's not canonical so such restrictions aren't very important...in ACTUAL gameplay (as in campaign) he can't use lightning. Instead he gets Choke.

He could always have gotten some kind of special apparatus for his prosthetic hands that allow him to cast Force Lightning or at least some kind of energy similar to Force Lightning. Kind of like how Lumiya got her prosthetic arms enhanced with energy bolt launchers.

He cannot use lightning! It's just for MP! Vader has no special "apparatus!"

Calm down, Juno. I meant "maybe".

However, he only seems to be able to access Lightning in Duel Mode, which is non-canon since you can set up matches such as Darth Maul vs. Luke Skywalker in the TIE fighter factory.
