I thought that as well, which is quite ironic since he's supposed to be a baddie to begin with, you'd think his style would be more leaning towards the aggressive...

Yeah there's like 10 women in my street using katanas and broadswords in that way!

I heard in an interview that they did it so you could see the lightsaber better. I also noticed that Ashoka from the Clone Wars has that same stance.

Why would you want to see the lightsaber if the game is about the "force"..?

^ Because from the back of the character it's more visually interesting to see the lightsaber...?

Could be... Though I seem to agree with the person who said it was to allow Galen to more easily use the force.
