- I hate how 'Starkiller' holds his lightsaber behind his back, like he's Darth Snoop Dog.

It's like holding a hand gun sideways. Looks cool to many, but stupid when you're in an actual fight.

'Attack of the Clones: For some reason I can make it to Anakin's cringe-worthy lovey-dovey lines on Naboo, but I can't get to the choice bits with ..you know...the actual Attack of the Clones. As far as I know, the movie should have been called "Episode II: I Hate Sand." '

Starkiller apparently has a number of different lightsabers he usses through out the tale. The one he holds behind him has a hilt much like a cops batton, with that extra handle protuding from the side.

Holding the lightsaber like that does have some precedent in the EU, a Dark Jedi and his descendant in I, Jedi hold their lightsaber like that.

I just read the comic book...and...

Meh.

I wasn't too impressed.

I stopped reading it when I got to the part where he fights the Obi-Wan Kenobi robot . I mean, WTF, man?

I've been playing the game, and I got to say, it's overrated.

I wouldn't mind trying it on the Wii -- apparently you use the remote as a lightsaber and the wii nunchuks (whatever that is) as force powers -- it sounds like it'd be fun, as long nobody actually sees you playing it. Shame I don't have a wii.
