Everyone's favourite site ever, IGN, have topped themselves once again by posting an entire interview with LucasArts' Mike Gallo and Obsidian's Kevin Saunders entirely about lightsabers.
IGN: It took a while to get your first lightsaber in KOTOR. When can gamers expect to wield the ol' laser blade in KOTOR II?There's stuff in there about what new saber colours the game will have. Just what I've been begging to ask these guys.
Mike Gallo: Well, since it's an RPG, and the lightsaber is one of the most powerful weapons in the game (and Galaxy), we have to treat it as a very special item. Getting your lightsaber is not a small task, and we don't want to reveal too much about how you get it. To answer the question of "when," the answer is late enough to not break the balance of the game and early enough so that people can have a good time running around as a Jedi Knight for a large portion of the game. That is intentionally vague, because not everyone will acquire their lightsaber at the same time.
