Unorthodox weapons are effective only because they're unorthodox.

And that doesn't make them good, but I wouldn't really call a bouble-blader unorthodox


Yes

Sadly, you'd be wrong, then. Double-Bladed Lightsabers are actually extremely unorthodox within canon.

Helpful! 
The Lightwhip is actually a pretty good idea, IMO.
It was used by Silri in SW:EAW FOC.

That still didn't answer my question anyway. What do you have against the double-blader?


Yes

Does it really mater? Lightsabers are lightsabers. The size and shape of the lightsaber are not important. It is how you use it.

I'd say them being unorthodox makes them more effective, but that doesn't have anything to do with their inherent effectiveness.

The light-"staffs"? In TFU would be kinda cool, i've never seen those before. And they seem that they would be ancient weapons.

What I have against Double-Bladeds is that they're nothing new. I'm sick of people going "Lightsabers are cool, so you know what we'll do? We'll duct-tape two of them together at the bottom. Or we'll duct-tape a small one to a large one at a fourty-five degree angle. Or god help us, we'll make the blade flexible!" I mean, dear god, I don't mind it when it's rare. If Exar Kun and Darth Maul were the only examples of Double-Bladed wielders I wouldn't be bothered, but geez, you can't go five feet without stumbling over guys who both dual-wield sabers and use Saberstaffs. If you don't want to use the classic weapon, how about you use something new?

Because most of these new sabers designs suffer relentless opposition? I mean, the double-bladed sabers have become known even to fans who restrict themselves to the movies. It's the safest bet.

Not what I meant. What I meant was, why don't you use something other than a Lightsaber?

I think they should have tonfa lightsabers, both of the ones in the poll, and lightsaber staffs.

I think it's more or less the same reason as before. People chose what's safer to bet on. Lightsabers are a symbol of the Jedi, and Star Wars for that matter.

Because lightsabers are far more powerful than your average sword. Heck, outside of Kotor, a lightsaber will cut through an average sword! And they deflect blaster bolts, and they melt doors, and they can only be used effectively by Force-sensitive people, and they look cool (though the Jedi won't admit that's why they use them)...


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.
