But those same movie fans won't know what a Jedi Consular is either, so why aren't they named something similar, like "Jedi Master"? Any argument over familiarity to movie fans is killed when you see the similarly obscure Jedi Consulars in the game just fine. Casual fans would recognize Jedi Consulars but not Jedi Guardians?
