Red is the only option here... purple is also a nice color.

if i were a jedi, i would opt out of lightsabres altogether

suppose if it was required, i'd take some manner of shockingly bright yellow or white sabre, to act as a flashlight or distraction as needed

in terms of actual combat, though, uhhh, gun, thanks

any gun you've got, really

just so long as i don't have to roll up on gatling laser-wielding deathbots whilst armed with nothing but a dumb glowstick-ass sword

i hate to criticise the jedi, being they all died in 'sith' anyway, but, you know, there are some tactical advantages to long-range weaponry

quit being dumb and join the whatevereth century already

you know, wookiees like rending people limb from limb in hand-to-hand combat, too, and they still carry bowcasters around for the sake of shootin dudes in a pinch

Warning: If you pick purple, Samuel L. Jackson will be very irate.

Here's why: he was given a purple lightsaber because that's literally his favorite color, so when he saw other Jedi toting purple blades on a DVD re-release of Attack of the Clones, he felt like he was losing his uniqueness as the character of Mace Windu.

Anyway, I'll take the green blade.

^^guess i can see where he's coming from

that is just about the only thing that made boring-ass mace windu even slightly noteworthy-----take that away from him, he's just another clown constantly bringing a knife to the gunfight

^When it's a bulletproof knife that you can use psychic powers to keep between yourself & bullets, it's not so bad.

Purple, 'cause it's my favorite color too, & I would totally fight Vaapad-style like Windu.

Here's a thought; why not have both a lightsaber AND a gun? Better yet, go all FF8 and combine them.

Yeah. Think about it.

Black. "But AI, light doesn't work that way!" Shut up, I'm a space wizard. I do what I want.
I muttered 'light as a board, stiff as a feather' for 2 days straight and now I've ascended, ;aughing at olympus and zeus is crying

^^'why not have both a gun and a sword?'

okay sure

like why not carry a first-aid kit and a jar of leeches around?

and, like, why not keep a gps and an astrolabe handy?

because it's f*ckin dumb, that's why

Pretty sure in a universe where magic force power exists, light can work however it damn well pleases.

Uhhhhh. Okay. So you're a Jedi on the battlefield, leading a battalion of slave-soldiers to their deaths (don't even get me started on the moral implications of the clone army, guy), when enemy dudes start shootin at you.

So you flash your incredibly bright, eye-catching lazer-sword to deflect the enemy fire.

The very fact of flashing your incredibly bright, eye-catching lazer-sword naturally attracts the attention of enemies on the battlefield-----best case, you're merely confirming your position for enemy units; worst case, you're attracting the attention of yet more hostiles.

So you have to use your sabre more.

Which attracts the attention of bad guys.

So you have to use your sabre more.

Which attracts the attention of bad guys.

So you have to use your sabre more.

Which attracts the attention of bad guys.

'Is this what they call a catch-22, Boo?'
'Yes it is, Other Boo.'


...never even minding the moral implications of attracting enemy attention to the unit of i-cant-repeat-this-enough slave-soldiers you are leading into battle (on top of the already-neverminded moral implications of leading slave-soldiers into battle to begin with)-----bet those poor bastards enjoy having tons more enemy fire directed at them, innit

I mean, key-rist, here. You know, I main Fox in SSB (when I'm not maining Yoshi, of course), I understand the practical applications of being able to reflect enemy fire (when I'm not sustaining my own torrent of fire because I f*ckin main Yoshi and eggs eggs eggs eggs EGGS, of course), but, like, that isn't exactly master-level strategy. The Gungans had that sh*t nailed down, with their laser-reflecty-ass shields in TPM. And please note, it wasn't just one Gungan guy with a laser-reflecty-shield trying to lead a bunch of dudes without shields into withering fire.

God damn it. I seriously despise the Jedi, thanks to the prequels. Even if the only thing they did wrong in the prequels was taking ownership of the slave-army, that would make them no better than the bad guys, at very best.

Even if I didn't already think the lightsabre was a dumb weapon, still I'd be about as comfortable using one in public as I would a laptop with a big huge confederate flag wallpaper, or a pocket-knife with a giant swastika engraved in the hilt. I'm dead f*ckin serious.

Please don't mistake me-----I want to like the Jedi. Like, I read a ton of them Tales of the Jedi comics back in the day, and I love Luke-----Luke is great, he's fantastic, who doesn't love Luke. And I like original-series Obi-Wan, and Yoda...they're clearly on the side of good, despite the fact that they are demonstrably mistaken about certain things.

Oh, man, Luke is so much better than literally everyone in the prequel saga. I can hardly stand it. Luke is better than his masters in every way imaginable. They're the last remnants of the Jedi? You know, I think Luke stands a chance of establishing a much better, less-stupid Jedi order without any dumbassed established Jedi dogma backing his play-------like, he clearly has morals, he wants to do the right thing, and he cares enough about people and/or is sufficiently insightful to ignore his masters' sh*tty advice at least twice (first when he left Dagobah to try and save his friends in ESB, second when he attempted to redeem Vader in RotJ).
