Question lightsaber interaction?

I don't know if this has already been discussed, but, will you be able to get into rooms and such with your lightsaber. The way Qui Gonn tried to get into that one room at the beginning of Episode 1.

I dont know about melting walls like in episode 1, but in the pc gamer trailer kyle destroys a wall by throwing his saber at it.

Well, the game trailers clearly show the lightsaber damaging the walls, but my guess is that you'll only be able to actually use the lightsaber to break through the walls in a very limited number of preset circumstances (if at all). After all, what's the point of creating a vast level when the player could just hack his way through all the walls and complete the level in 2 minutes flat?

I'm pretty sure that the things Kyle destroyed you're referring to were some sort of conduits on the wall rather than actual walls separating rooms.

It might be cool, but there's no point. Hence no need to waste precious development time on it. I prefer they perfect the features they already included instead of cramming in as much as possible.

Raven did mention didn't they that there would be some destructible items? I wonder too if you can use the lightsabre to do these things with? I also wanna have some fun cleavin' some stormtroopers!

I don't want to start an argument or anything, but if you're looking at the same bit I am (approx. 1 min 38 seconds into the PC GAMER UK video), it seems to me that Kyle doesn't walk through the wall, but actually turns around 180 degrees to face a matching conduit on the opposite wall. If you look at the way the camera in that bit moves and bear in mind the way it works in most 3rd person action games, the camera is also rotating 180 degrees to follow Kyle's back. Granted it's a bit difficult to tell 'coz Kyle is standing in the middle of the explosion when it occurs, but I guess we'll just have to wait 'till we get the final game to see, eh?
