Yeah i did try that just now, and to my surprise it wasnt a lightning (dunno why the last time i tried was a lightning one).
They seem fairly diffcult to kill, especially once they have that force rage-like thingy. The moment they explode you're dead, and sends you together with anyone else near the blast (enemy or friendly) flying. That could be the reason why it isnt included during normal gameplay.
Luke and kyle did used protect as a defence though, it took quite a few blasts to kill them. Other force like push or grip also works pretty well, push them down or off a cliff to kill them, grip only stuns them in the air and they cannot self-destruct while being gripped.
They seem to be immune to drain and lightning. Turn on force sense and you'll see they have 0% health once they turn on the rage animation thingy.
