They actually kind of look like the lightsabers from Lego Star Wars!

The models are still early concept guys......but I admit it kinda looks cool that way you can actually see the detail of the lightsaber.

The other screen shots look totally awesome, very lush environment's with good detail, the game developers are heading in a good direction

A good level of customisation of the hilts is one thing I am really hoping for - and I know others are too, and it would seem quite essential for an MMO with any level of individuality. But the outsize issue is a big problem in my view, as they just look ridiculous - or, rather, looked. They appear a little better in more recent shots.

You should have no problem with people seeing your lightsaber. It is a big glowing sword after all.

We all know that one's lightsaber is a personal design/representation of the wielder. With that in mind, I'd love it if we can design our own hilts for ourselves and others to see.

If they can implement some sort of copyright/ownership file server, one can share their design with others, so long as the original designer gives permission.

A made saber and gives a copy to B. C likes B's saber and wants a copy, but has to go ask A. A no stealing policy that should encourage modders, don't ya think?

Good reason not to allow external designs for sabers.

That was another thing I was happy to see at the E3 demo, the lightsabers were on your belt when you weren't using them. When the Sith equipped 2 sabers at the end, one of them was on each side of his waist. Glad they finally got that right, was annoying in KotOR always holding it.

Holy smokes, that's big! But the lightsaber hilts don't really bother me, what bothers me is the sort of cartoony style graphics they've picked for this game. I want the more realistic style graphics from the first game, where the characters actually looked like real people! This kinda worries me...

I thought they were going with the "we want everyone's computer to be able to play it" deal. Some people still got issues with the KotORs.

Well, I run KOTOR on a Dell laptop and it works great, even though it's not supposed to work for laptops. I see what you mean, though. It's a shame they have to sacrifice the quality of the visuals for compatability issues...

They are never going to be able to make it run on everyones computer but at the same time they want it to run on as many as possible without sacrificing too much. It's a fine balance that they will need to get just right!
