In the context of the game, I don't know but in the movies it's like Qui-Gon meditating while the energy shield was up during his fight with Darth Maul.
I can imagine quite a bit.

I would guess that this was a practice employed by Jedi during battle in order to maintain their calm. In battle it is all to easy to let anger and fear drive your adrenaline, and thus your strength, which is exactly the kind of trap a Jedi would be trained against falling into.

Battle Meditation was first mentioned in Dark Empire II. Details are a bit vague, but seems to enable Jedi to completely coordinate attacks with other Jedi.

Rarely used, strangely enough for such a potent technique.

Perhaps it requires too much concentration, too much focus inward, and not enough outward, which would leave a Jedi open to physical attack?

I've always held that a duel between two Force users was likely fought on several levels, with only the most basic being the physical, while trying to trip, push, choke, etc. would have to be countered constantly.

But if it's a technique to "cool" ones self down, then how can it be used as a weapon?

Perhaps it projects calm around the Jedi which would counter a Sith's power. Make them regret all the pain and want to seek out a therapist? :help:

Could be, but not what I was suggesting. Giving insight into "evil actions" would cause anyone to pause a moment. In a duel, that pause could be crucial to the outcome.

Oh, so they were trying to stop them and make them pause, just long enough to finish them?

A distraction, yes. Like throwing sand, or manuevering them into the sun, or shooting a blaster in their favorite left leg. :bg: All nice distractions that can win a duel.

Sounds like cheating to me.

I guess that depends on whose side you're on and what outcome you'd prefer. Feints are a part of fencing, as is footwork and some clever wrist techniques. If you consider the art as a whole, it's all cheating. You're using the advantage of reach and a sharp peice of metal to defeat or kill your opponent.

It's interesting to note that "bad guys" who throw sand or pull a hidden blade, or fling someone over a wall are considered to have cheated. A "good guy" who does the same thing is just being clever. <shrug>
