I think it would be safe to say that the most iconic of Star Wars weapons is the lightsaber. There is something about sword combat that is so deeply ingrained in the cultural psyche that presenting a futuristic way to use swords was nothing short of a stroke of genius on Lucas’ part. And there is something very beautiful about watching lightsaber combat–indeed it’s one of my favorite parts of the saga. Be it the more cautious, reserved lightsaber combat of the Original Trilogy or the open, wild, raw lightsaber combat of the Prequel Trilogy, lightsaber combat is a beautiful thing indeed.
