I got something to kick start this new thread:

To extrapolate on the "shooting lightsabers" idea, what if you just made a giant Lightsaber hilt, pointed it at the target, and turned it on?

Perhaps, though, the size would cause a loss of energy, thus making the beam very short. But I still believe, with enough electricity (what do lightsabers run on anyway?), you could destroy, for example, a whole two story house in an instant with that kind of power.

Or perhaps we should keep the small lightsaber hilt, but mount it on a space ship of some sort and "turn up the juice?" it's been proven that we can have deadly accurate missles shot from our modern day jets, why not have deadly accurate and long ranged lightsabers?

Better yet! Make a mechanism to turn it on and off fast. Maybe then it would shoot lightsaber beams?

Well, I was thinking more of a continuous beam, useful for penetrating very thick metal (but this is ignoring the fact that the lightsaber is considered a part of the jedi because the force flows through the body and the lightsaber contiuosly (which is why Yoda was able to grab that lighning blast, and how Darth Vader can block lasers with his hands). Your idea might be a good one, Noodlesis, but I'm willing to bet that if we can get our hands on a lightsaber we'll already have blasters and the such, which is basically a easier-to-handle lightsaber beam.

Yeah, because if there is anything that the lore of lightsabers needs it's the direct phallic reference of someone destroying an entire planet with his huge erection.

Okay, continue. Just wanted to say that, because I find it hilarious.

What I want to know is, did a Jedi ever make a large shield shaped beam and used it to charge through rock or something?

not to my knowledge, no. I'm pretty sure the movie didn't use lightsaber beams for anything other than... lightsabers.
