When a Jedi needs to hide his identity, it isnt that hard. Maybe change out of your robes, and hide your lightsaber, no big deal.

And hiding a lightsaber doesnt always mean it is readily available , sure some people have disguised them as glowrods, and hydrospanners but depending upon the disguise that the jedi is using those may not always work

and i agree Ralin Drakus on the fact that Jedi just dont use blasters all the time, for the fact that the order has no laws against using blasters, the lightsaber is the traditional jedi weapon, but its not always the most practical for all situations

Jedi are not all powerful this has been proven time and again  for a jedi or sith for that mater to rely only on their force powers or their lightsaber is to hobble themselves

Ah yes, to not rely on a laser sword that can cut through nearly any material or their Force powers which allow them to move objects at their will or influence others with their mind or cast lightning from their fingertips or heal themselves or others or run at amazing speeds or jump and unbelievable heights would definitely be hobbling themsevles.


Describe a situation in which Force powers or a lightsaber could be superceded by a blaster.

you seem to forget that not all jedi have those powers Valthonin

I dont really want to post a spolier so read the latest legacy of the force book for one,
Another would be when trying to hide ones identity, because walking around with a lightsaber on your hip and using the force for every kinda makes you stand out


and yes using the force for everything does hobble them, it creates a distance between the order and the people that they have sworn to protect, thats why during the clone wars some jedi generals had the respect of the clone and non-clone unites in the GRA, and why Jacen has the respect/loyalty of his soldiers in the legacy of the force series

In the books that take place after the movies he uses a blaster on many occasions as do many other jedi, and dont tell me stuff about the books being like the games where you can or cannot use a blaster, because GL has to approve of everything first

That is from RotJ. A ligthsaber is a Jedi's weapon. And the only jedi weapon. A true Jedi relies only on his skill with the powerful ligthsaber. Not on other uncivilized weapons, as they view them. They dont carry around grenades or blasters or rocket launchers. They only use them in EXTREME situations where a lightsaber is not readily available. If they chose to use another weapon over a lightsaber they have at hand then they do not trust in their skills with the lightsaber or their Jedi training with the lightsaber so....they are not a true Jedi.

So luke skywalker is not a true jedi?

and the jedi order is based upon many easter religions, i've writen a few papers about the religions behind jedi
and palpatine is not the only one to call it a religion Han Solo has as well

check the assistant director list. spielberg "action scene director"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0121766/combined

He is the first assistant action scene director

Imdb Glossary wrote:

A First Assistant Director is responsible for the preparation of the shooting schedule and script breakdown used to plan the shooting of a film or television show. The AD works directly with the Director to manage of the minute to minute operations on the set during the process of filming, as well as co-ordinating the necessary communication of details of future operations as the filming progresses. Other duties include tracking the progress of filming versus the production schedule, observing all rules related to union crafts, labor contracts and location agreements, maintaining safety on the working set, and working with the Unit Manager to keep operational costs within the budgeted plan.

so spielberg wouldnt have had as much say in the that scene as you would think

im not saying a jedi shouldnt use a blaster but that is a whole other ball of wax.

really because thats what this makes it seem like

Cujo wrote:

I believe that a true Jedi accepts the lightsaber as his only weapon. Which is why they train with lightsabers and only lightsabers. Not blasters or grenades. A true jedi is confident with his skill with the lightsaber and relies solely on that. A lightsaber is fit to take on any other saber or blaster, which is why they dont need blasters. It is more destructive than a thermal detonator, which is why you never see them on any Jedi's belt.

so now Cujo it seems like you are contradicting yourself

because a lightsaber is not always the best tool for the job especially if you wish to go unnoticed

cujo wrote:

thus- yes i believe a jedi would scoff at using a blaster/ if for no other reason it is beneath them.
as for kenobi using a blaster on GG to end him, it was that or death by terminal velocity. i believe speilberg worte
the scene or at least directed it. (feel free to correct that)

ok now im 99% sure about what im about to say
since george lucas is not part of any of the official movie making guilds since Indiana jones  Speilberg and lucas cannot work together on a movie

now if you pat attention to the books, Jacen Solo, Jaina Solo, Mara Jade Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo, Luke Skywalker, and i believe Ben Skywalker, Corran Horn, Corran's son (i think his name is valin)  and several other jedi use blaster or weapons other than their lightsabers, mara is kinda obvious since she was an assassin, ben uses a vibroblade on a few occasions Corran's usese a rocket launcher on an occasion, and Jacen Jaina, Luke, and Leia have all used a blaster pistol at the same time as using their lightsaber

you know what the info i had posted earlier about bard'ika was relevent because it was released the same time as this book!

well in the begining of tripple zero Kal'buir asked Bard'ika to come with him down to the site of a terrorist attack to see what he could feel through the force

and if you pay attention in a lot of the books it mentions that jedi are able to pick up emotions in objects and areas

he wouldnt be using a kiffar ability With Kiffar it is only 1 in 100 that get that ability,
he would be using the force
and the only reason i say that line secures it for me is because it is a very jedi like answer

ok thanks, i feel stupid now i was looking for that for about 5 minutes... but i have that moved into a more specific area

Now this might have a lot of spoilers in it so be warned.. and since a lot of topics that i post in seem to drift towards discussion on what is currently happening with Omega/Delta/Nulls and the "modern" mando'ade and well here is the first theory i have to post

Now this is a major spoiler for Star Wars Legacy of the Force Scarifice


     Venku--Kad'ika--came up to Feet and Mirta in the tapcaf and gestured over his shoulder
     "He says he'll do it," said Venku. "he didn't want to tell you he could read the stone there and then, in case he couldn't. He hates disappointing people."
     The old man who'd come to stare at Fett with Kad'ika the other day walked slowly across the tapcaf. He peeled off his gloves and held out a fraild hand dappled with age.
     "I can do it," he said. "Let me hold the stone."
     Mirta looked hesitant, then took off the necklace to hand it to Fett.
     "You're Kiffar by origin,then," Fett said. Mandalorians came from any number of species and planets, but adopting the culture didn't erase their genetic profiles. "Saves me a journey."
     "I... know the planet."

this is taken directely from pages 350 & 351 in Scarifice.

Now this is why people seem to think the old man mentioned is Bard'ika, the reason Venku is protective of him, and thanks to KT  we know a bit about Bard'ika, for example he was good at picking up emotions from crime scenes with the force, and at other times it seemed at least to me that he didnt want to let Skirta or any of Skirta's boys down and then his statement of "I... know the planet." kinda secures that theory in my mind...
