I don't like betas of 1.3 but I still have one idea that you might find useful.
(I havent read this thread, so ignore this if it was posted b4)
Something like bodydodging, working same as Parrying but without saber ( or with saber) . You press and hold button ''x'', and walk to dodge hits, same as when you are parrying. It wont hurt your dodge, but one undodged hit will kill you. It should figure as new force power ( well, something similar to saber defend). First levels of it should take some dodge, last shouldnt. It may be useful for melee+ force users, and it could make gameplay more.. movielike ( as you want ).
