Hmm, there's something to think about. Will GL digitally add his lightsaber at some point in ESB in some future release.
I can imagine quite a bit.

He had no need for a lightsaber, before that he needed the thing for direct battles such as that with Dooku and Palp. after the point of the fall of the temple and the destruction of the Jedi Order he saw the path ahead and knew he had no need of a lightsaber.

Who knows, maybe he had the thing under his robe the whole time but I believe it was just a matter of not having the technology to make it look right at the time the movies were made.

But what about Obi-1 then? Why does he think he still needs to possess a light sabre?

Obi-Wan was not the sole jedi on a planet. He was surrounded by "scum and villiany."

He also needed to train Luke, I doubt he intended to be called into service and not have any time to lighsaber train Luke.

Then - how did Luke learn to fight with a light saber? Obi died before he could teach him properly, Yoda had no light saber...

He really wasn't very good with a lightsaber, he could have usd the hovering thing he used on the MIllenium Flacon with Obi Wan and use general Jedi skills, but ultimatelty he wasnt that skilled.

It actually appears to me when Yoda jumps down into the ship with Jimmy Smits, for a very brief time his lightsaber is attached to his belt..humm. I thought he lost it, but maybe he grabed it. Either way I dont think he needed it in his suclusion. You can practice sword fighting technigues without a lightsaber, i've been doing it for 14 years.

doesnt Yoda carry his lightsaber concealed? Maybe in Episode III he doesn't - I didn't really notice. I remember him pulling his robe aside to reveal his lightsaber in Ep III.

One of the greatest things about Episode II was Yoda's lightsaber duel with Duku. He just takes the lightsaber out of his cloak/robe - out of nowhere and we got that amazing fight.

It was so amazing because we didn't even know that he had one or knew how to use one. Seeing that little guy fight....greatness.

So if he had it, wouldnt it be concealed?

Digitally adding in a lightsaber into the OT would ruin Ep II for those who see it 4/5/6/1/2/3

Well, but he did loose it in Ep III. You can see it lying on the floor, when Yoda tumbles down from the platform.

Seeing it on the dvd, I did notice that he landed right next to it but made no "visual" attempt to retrieve it.

If you watch it carefully you see that the lightsaber falls into a different place than Yoda does and he dosnt have enough time to recover it before leaving!
