OK fine. Is levitation of a living being that simple? Especially in heated combat? Why didn't Obi-Wan simply do that with Grievous when he fought him? We see Yoda and Mace levitate with ease, but maybe not everyone can, ridiculous displays of the Force in the micro series aside. Even still, that's just not the way the Jedi are trained to think. Their fighting style is much more direct, at least at the time of the Clone Wars. I swear, I'm leaving now.
