    Palpatine's melee is really useful when you're at close-range, as trying to lightning someone while you're being sabered to death is beyond ineffective. If you're playing as a Jedi and Palpy comes up to start melee-spamming you (I tend to think it should be reserved as a desperation move, rather than an immediate tactic), try sabering his butt off or dashing back a few paces to put some distance, then use a tactic like Force Push (to gain some distance from him), Mind Trick (so you can have a better chance of escape), or some 'screw this I'm out of here' ability if the Palpatine isn't going to try and play fair. If a Palp keeps being a pain, seek other heroes out and stick close by him, as Palp vs 2-3 jedi doesn't stand too much of a chance (even less if he's against a decent blaster hero).

    The only problem with that is, that his lightning drains your stamina like crazy as it is. So now he can pretty much just **** your stamina in 2 seconds.

    He's much more "fair" when you never use it, besides the fact that he's a point and kill stealer. I mean as far as 1v1 goes most people never use it. I literally have been playing the game for over a year now on Xbox One and never once had I seen anyone use it. Even the few times I tried playing as him I never discovered it myself.

    Your own words admit that melee spamming with him is cheesing, so you already know that it's an unnecessary and unbalancing addition to his design. Would have rather had him have a lightsaber than a total manhandling ****.
