No because the saberstaff actually looks cool.

The saber hilt makes zero sense and looks dumb.

>>274014151
What is the fucking point of crossguard in fucking lightsaber?

Something interesting I've noticed about the villain's lightsaber is that it does not have a typical saber blade. A saber blade is usually pure white and clean looking, whereas this one looks unstable, almost like it's made of fire.

Until they started shoehorning it everywhere, so that every other character from every novel, comic, and game would have a saberstaff.

Even the bottom one doesn't work, functionally. Unless the blades are exactly (or more) wide than the section of the handle that emits them, you could still slide down and cut (or at least melt) through the metal in the exact corner.

I think canon is that only a force sensitive person can make a lightsabre as placing the crystal incorrectly would be lethal. I know the jedi use it as a one of the ultimate tests on whether you are ready to leave training or not.

See the problem with the star wars universe (and i suppose any outragours sci-fi universe) is that there is no concrete proof or "anchor" to how anything ultimately works.

Take lightsabers for instance. There has been enough on them to describe how they work but there is an equal amount of stuff that completely goes against the idea. Is it the fact that there is no absolute in how lightsabers work or is it that people just make up shit as they go?

Lighsabers are flawed to the core

A sword that cauterizes its own cuts. What an useless sword as causing bleeding is one of the main advantages of using cutting weapons over smashing.
>>
>>274014151
>>274016156
The double bladed lightsaber was the maximum amount of edge they could have ever possibly went with the lightsaber before they went into the ridiculous territory that the new lightsaber in this movie went towards. The double bladed lightsaber at least made sense in being somewhat practical in the star wars world. Darth Maul was a mysterious Sith that wielded on so it obviously deserved a pass. With the way the lightsaber is suppose to work according to the lore, only the double bladed and standard ones would ever make any sense. Yoda's of course because he is small. All what it was is a standard saber only smaller.

I love the fact that the biggest issue people seem to have with the crossguard is the 'practicality'. Nigga, when have lightsabers ever been practical? The only reason they work in the movies is because, for some fuckign reason, all the projectile weapons around are slow and energy based; try blocking all the bullets from a modern day automatic rifle with a fucking lightsaber.

Lightsabers exist because it's fucking awesome. In a universe where technology has reached incredible heights, there's this order full of monks with ancient wisdom, space magic and fucking laser swords. Why? Because it's pretty fucking metal, that's why. None of this shit was ever practical, so stop trying to force that shitty argument

Biology major here. Fire actually is light. Light is just a wave of electrons traveling in a vaccuum.

So basically light is an electron wave, and fire just when you take the light and trap it around a molecule.

everbody knows the sith weren't good lightsaber builders
they use shabby materials and methods thats why their laser emits red light

didn't you notivce how Anakin mistreated his lightsaber(s)? losing and destroying all his weapons like it was just a piece of metal? sith do this all the time they don't give a fuck

jedi using the lightsaber like a samurai his katana, its their second soul they take their time to build a good and solid lightsaber using only high quality crystals and materials and still they manage to balance the force around theira strong lightsaber
you think qui-gon couldn't make a lightsaber so strong it would obliterate all other lightsabers? he could but he didn't want to because the lightsaber is not an instrument of empowerment for the jedi unlike the sith who build them as strong as possible to show their power

Anyone trying to argue to the point of armor practicality needs to be reminded that MODERN ARMOR, TODAY, that soldiers wear don't do shit to actually protect them from bullets. The helmets most of all, those things will get fucked if someone decided to shoot you in the head.

This is the problem with Lucas just makes shit up as he goes along but then claims it was all planned out from the beginning.

If you're practiced with your weapon (which Siths and Jedis obviously are), then it'd be no problem.

Not to forget how crossguards are extremely practical for swordfighting and finger protection

>inb4 hurr it'll cut through or its lore breaking!
Neither is true, there are lightsaber deflecting materials and the sword model is canon: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Crossguard_lightsaber

Point is, it doesn't break any rules and its a good idea, though it seems a bit silly.

-Can be used to cut through almost any wall or door

-blocks other lightsabers
-makes you easily distinguishable as someone not to fuck with.

I don't get it. You say they used shabby materials then you go on to say they build them as strong as possible. So which one is it?
>>
>>274021590

Obi-wan handily blocks a flechet gun in the clone wars miniseries by using the force, I can't see how a regular gun would be any better. He also blocks a flamethrower with the force in the same fight.

>>274022840
To deflect blaster fire?
You have a sword that can fucking cut literally ANYTHING.

The weapon isn't practical to anyone except fucking jedi who know how to use it.

This is why you don't see anyone else other than a jedi or sith use a lightsaber.

Why do you think luke was training with a lightsaber the moment he was training?
>>
>>274023270
Of all of the lightsaber styles I've seen, this is the one I think would lop off your own arm.

>>
>>274022750

Yeah, those are valid reasons.

>>274022802

Ah, now that I could agree with. Personally though, it doesn't really violate my suspension of disbelief - if anything it just reminded me more of a crusader sword, sorta reinforcing the notion of the whole religious aspect of the Jedi / Sith

>>274022905

You should watch Metalocalypse, I think you'd enjoy it lots

>>274023139

I can accept that

>>274023250

Yeah, but as I said before this, the reason that blasters fire like they do is BECAUSE that way lightsabers will be able to deflect them, and thus making them viable. They thought up the idea of glowing laser swords because it's awesome, and then they had to make up some excuse as to why guns wouldn't just fuck them up royally. Same goes for >>274023372 on anything "deflecting blaster fire"-related

This, he has an intergalactic struggle for being opressed and discriminated and has to fight and unite the galaxy with equality and tolerance, you see, the dark side is a clever metaphor for racism and the black guy not being in the dark side is a clever jab at reverse racism. And the female character is all covered up, you think it's becuase she is in the desert but you are wrong, a whole set of hidden meaning is waiting to be discovered in another stroke of genius from the noble crusade that is gender equality.

You just don't get it.

>>274022840

I think you were going to go for the fact that without a hilt your hand can slip right into the beam, which makes the hilt actually a good idea.
>>
>>274023620

they're supposed to be rare, but in the extended universe it seems everyone who owns a robe has stumbled across the rare crystals.

also there's supposed to be a multitude of colors but apparently the sith are really uncreative and always go with the traditional red=bad crystal while the good guys go for blues and greens

I want to see more yellow sabers
>>
>>274023934
I don't think even Disney could really say. Basically I think they just want to make the new trilogy without having to worry about keeping in line with the clusterfuck that is the EU.

It's a good action movie but it's a shit star trek movie.

At least Abrams manages to make people have emotions in his films. 50% of the prequels are two people standing in a room slowly talking to each other and not moving around very much because the actual physical set is tiny and they don't have much room, and 50% is completely CGI scenes where things actually move around and do stuff.

At least Abrams can, for example, have people running around on a physical set and talking in something other than expository monotone.
