Default Your thoughts on Yoda using a lightsaber

I'm making a fanedit of the prequel trilogy for my own enjoyment and I have the opportunity to slice out any scene of Yoda using a lightsaber (actually not too hard). But I'm truly not sure about my feelings on the matter.

Do you like Yoda using a lightsaber?

As a younger Jedi, it's totally fine. But for the Yoda we know, I don't like it.

Didn't really bother me. I wish it were saved for Sith though, seeing his desperation in attempting to stop Palpatine he resorts to his oldest weapon, his lightsaber.

I liked it. I know some had issues with it, but i'm glad we got to see that side of Yoda. We had only seen the old wise jedi one. It was cool to see he was capable of picking up his lightsaber and kicking some butt.

i sometimes feel he wouldn't be caught dead wielding a lightsaber. The amount of energy he must expel calling upon the force to jump around like a grasshopper with his tiny frail body seems like it would be far less than the amount of energy to just be a Force wizard like he should be. He shouldve battled with his mind and with force telekinesis 90% of the time.

I don't mind him having a lightsaber but the way he fights in the prequels was laughably bad. It was completely antithetical to what the character was in the OT. The whole point was to illustrate that with the force stature and physical strength didn't matter. It wasn't about being a "great warrior", it was an internal power and understanding that superseded the flesh and was not to be used for offense. It's astounding how all that was thrown away in the Episode II fight in favor of a cartoon cricket flipping around an elderly man.

The trouble of finally having Sidious and Yoda finally fighting is that with the powers established (telekinesis, lightning and absorbing lightning) is that they're pretty boring, and don't lend themselves to duels (see Attack of the Clones). But lightsbers clashing with bouts of lightning being thrown, absorbed, objects thrown is more interesting.

The trouble is, they were separated into three distinct sections, rather than one battle.

I didn't mind it at all. I liked the contrast from the OT.

Christopher Lee must have looked pretty ridiculous waving around a stick at nothing for days of shooting.
