The poorly constructed lightsaber could actually lend itself to some funny Falcon Hyperdrive type failure moments.

Yeah I mean, how hot is that "exhaust"?  It's so close to the hand that you could inadvertantly scald yourself really badly during a fight... can you imagine losing a saber duel that way?

S: "And now, my young Jedi, prepare to di.... yoooooow!!!! Ooooooh, that really smarts! I burned myse---"
CHOP! (Jedi with non-crappy exhaust-based lightsaber beheads the Sith/bad guy)
J: "Next time, get a better saber!"

I've watched the teaser a dozen times now, so excited for this. The lightsaber has grown on me, close ups show it as discharges; as if the lightsabers unstable or something.
The new Stormies rock, I want a helmet right meow. Tie's, Falcon, woot woot need I say more? Sith Lord, loving it. Ball droid...meh I can live with it as long as it's not Jar Jar of the ST.

The lightsaber may seem unwieldy and dangerous - and in the hands of an unskilled person would very likely cause self-injury. But really, ANY sword design - indeed, any weapon at all - can be dangerous to someone who is careless or has inadequate training. I'm pretty sure a highly skilled force-sensitive with a lifetime of training adapted to that specific saber design would have complete confidence in their ability to not only keep from injuring themselves, but cause much difficulty to whomever they are dueling.

Darth Maul comes to mind as an example - his saber was unconventional and came with increased risk to one's own well-being. And for a Sith, it kind of makes sense. Increased risk for increased power. That's what the dark side is all about. It's not a weapon that a play-it-safe Jedi would naturally gravitate towards using.

Also, this specific saber design is actually not entirely new. A similar "crossguard lightsaber" style has been depicted in a few of the comics: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Crossguard_lightsaber. Though I'm doubtful it had any part in inspiring the JJ-saber.
