I suppose my main issue with lightsabers is they're not a real sword, as in they don't have a solid blade.
I guess the same rule applies to the Force, if you're going to toss enemies around with your mind, use actual mental powers, not an imitation thereof.
HAHAHAHA, these are such arbitrary distinctions. Because if there's one thing I require in my mental powers, is that they be realistic.
I originally though the limitations of having only a lightsaber without a blaster as a ranged weapon would be problematic, but after powering up Anakin, Obi-wan, Yoda and Ahsoka, I found Luke's blaster to be annoyingly limiting. The "true Jedi" figures' force-dash ranged attack is incredibly powerful, and Ahsoka is particularly deadly when powered up. If I had a problem defeating a boss, she's usually my last resort big gun. I have to stop my self from saying "okay, you asked for it" out loud when I put her on the base.
