Because that totally doesn't make it any dumber.

Cortosis armor was a main plot point in Jedi Outcast. I think they were only able to mine it from one remote asteroid field. It's plausible enough that the Sith just weren't aware of it or lost the information.

And yet one out of two blokes in the Old Republic carries at least one sword made out of that stuff.

If I wanted to go extra autistic about this, I could point out that none of the melee weapons in the game have any sort of disadvantage against lightsabers, therefore every single melee weapon in the game is made out of Cortosis.

And how would anyone forget that one metal that lightsabers don't just go through like a hot knife through butter?

people forget all sorts of things, both in fiction and real life.

But given that for 1000 years, the only known lightsaber-wielders were peacekeeping Jedi(who didn't really spread out through the galaxy until the Clone Wars), one could argue that the necessity for cortosis largely disappeared.

Eh, sure. Then again you're not walking around wearing a kevlar vest either.

Best Star Wars game is obviously Soul Calibur 4.

It was kinda a dick move that the only Star Wars character available to both consoles is that non-canon edgelord who holds his lightsaber the wrong way.

I can live with that, seeing as how it introduced Sam Witwer to the franchise. He's a great voice actor
