    Traditional one bladed lightsabers please. I would rather see another curved hilt like Dooku's than another double bladed lightsaber.

    Lightsaber boomerang, arrow, and an umbrella for those rainy days on Kamino.

    Bleeccchhhh. It's like we've all become desensitized to the uniqueness of lightsabers that we need bigger and better. Up until Rotj lightsabers were only two colors: blue for good guys, red for bad guys. Luke's saber from Rotj was originally blue but was changed to green in post production because the blue didn't show well against the desert background.

    I remember the thrill I had as a little kid when Luke ignited his lightsaber. "There it is! I want one!"
    Aside from the duel with Vader at the climax of Rotj, Luke whipped out his saber what? Twice in the whole movie?

    I don't like the gimmicky aspect of lightsabers, it distracts from what's important, like character. What's Darth Maul's defining characteristic? His weapon. BORING!!!!!!!!!
