I wish ALL the Jedi had blue sabers, it would have made Lukes green saber more of a "next gen Jedi kinda thing" which is what it seemd like when ROTJ first came out.
But the Episode 1 came out and it was half green half blue for the Jedi. I always imagined the old school Jedi to have blue sabers, because they were good, and the baddies had red. I liked that simplicity.
When Luke was the only one with a green saber it made him look like "one of a kind" which is what I prefer.
Not blue, green and *vomit* purple. Oh well, that's another stupid little insignificant detail that I hate about the prequels. I have much more fun imagining the PT from what the OT told us, than actually watching the PT.
They may be small and insignificant things, but to me they are like paper cuts. All my complaints about the PT are small insignificant paper cuts, but seeing as I have loads of them, it's like japanese torture.

No offence, but I disagree. I was hoping that the prequels would introduce lots of new colours. Different colours would help show each characters individuality more. Plus, some characters look better with one blade colour than another.
I really dislike the whole blue=good and red=evil colour coding. Does Lucas think that if a Dark Sider has a blue blade then no-one will know he's evil? We're not stupid, we can tell if he's good or evil.
I just preferred the simplicity. I thought the scene with the Jedi in the colusseum on Geonosis would have been way cooler if every single one of them sparked up a blue blade.
Also, the blue colour looks pure. The red looks fiery and evil. Green doesn't look good or evil, which is why I thought it would have been better if only luke managed to make a green saber.
I also agree with you actually. If we weren't going to see all blue for the Jedi, we should have had more than just blue and green. We should have seen (more) purples, and even yellows.
I would have been really happy if all the Jedi had a wide spectrum of sabers, which would have, like you said, made them look more individual,
I would have been over the moon if all the Jedi had blue lightsabers, which would in a way, reflect their "uniform" character. It would just tie in with the whole "Jedi holding him down" thing with Anakin. The fact that all Jedi were very formulaic to their appraoch would be seen in the all-one-colour lightsabers. A New Hope made it very clear that both Anakin and Obi-Wan both had blue lightsabers. Ever since watching that film I have always pictured "the Jedi" to be a mass of warriors all with similar colours.
You make some good points, especially about Anakin. To be totally honest, I agree that visually the red blades are better suited to the Dark Siders (they do have that fiery, 'demonic' look). I just think it would be good to have some variety now and then.
Then again, in the Clone Wars cartoon, General Grievous uses blue and green lightsabres. Guess I got my wish.
A funny thing about the Colusseum battle; the reason Samuel L. Jackson wanted a purple lightsabre was so that he could find himself on-screen more easily.
Everyone forgets the coolest color.. ORANGE!!! and someone wrote before that they wanted 2 colors on the double hilted sword.. But that really works in Jedi Academy.. You will have to cheat every time to get it but still, it works. helpusobi 1 : cheats enabled. setcolor 1 red setcolor 2 orange, Or however you want the colors... And i got the orange color from the games i haven't seen it in movies or books. But maybe i have but not seen it.

Man, a double bladed with two colours looks rubbish.
It just looks like someones glued two different sabers together.
In video games I always have my characters have a SPECIFIC one colour.
If someone is wielding two blades, then they MUST be of the same colour - otherwise it just looks like they've picked up someone elses saber, rather than it looking like its truly their own.
It's a visual psychology thing. I also hate characters who have the wrong colour palette. Like a guy dressed all in yellow goes and picks up a green and a blue saber - so many people do this and it looks absolutely hideous.
In games like Jedi Knight, I always use a blue saber, single. It's still the most bad-ass.
