Everyone can hold lightsaber, yes, but only talented force users know how to make one. Everything is on the right place with making lightsabers here.
Making some items with crafting kit would add more fun to the game. It could be harder, take plenty of time and use raw materials or very rare RMs that don`t have any usage or animals skins (creatures coming soon I mean).
You take crafting kit, animal skin, some rare raw material, 2 units of mel, add some adegan and after 36h of crafting - voila! - we have Vodo Bonias voo-doo doll.
Voo-doo dolls wouldn`t add much to playabilty, but possiblity of crafting more minor items would, imho. And they are not free when you pay for: all items that are needed to craft, your time and possiblity of failure.
