I was just referring to Sea Hawk's two energy swords. The first got destroyed and he gained a much stronger one-the photon cutlass(both swords were based off swords for ships-scimitar or cutlass).
As to the Herclues movie, not Hercules. The villian of the movie had a sword that had rainbow flames as a blade and when Hercules killed him, the flames flickered out and left only the hilt behind IIRC.
As for Tales of the Old Republic, there are hilt designs in there as well. Some really weird designs, but they are there-one looks like a a twisting horn. However,I can understand trying to keep the clutter down.
As to the mistake and your thanks, you're welcome.
