Death sticks are decidedly different from smoking, yes. Frankly, we see Jabba smoking a hookah in the original trilogy and other characters also smoking with a water pipe being a preferred device on some parts of the galaxy. cigarras are actually more like cigarettes from the illustrations of the first to use them. Our favorite starship thief seems to use them on the end of a pipe like Cruella Deville. Game mechanics of Jedi Academy sadly don't reflect the actual Jedi Orders lightsaber styles (especially with the development of lightsaber forms). Luke Skywalker practiced Form V of the Jedi Order and presumably passed that along. Its likely with Ikrit, Callista, and other Jedi that have arrived that the Lightsaber forms of the Old Order have been ressurected.
