I've played KOTOR2 abunch of times and i know that the item placement is random but i was playin a game yesterday with the infinite hssiss glitche and beat Dantoine, Koriban, and Nar Shadaa and was half way through dxun and my only lightsaber was the one bao dur made. I was just wondering if this was the random placement or if it was from forgetting to turn it back from easy after beating the tank droid on telos.
Lightsabers are placed randomly but there are two places (or I guess people) where you can get lightsabers 99% of the time.
First, off of Master Vash's corpse in Korriban
Second, you get it as reward for rescuing the Kid from the Exchange Building in Nar Shadaa. Talk to her mom afterwards to claim your saber.
And finally, there is a glitch in Kotor 2 that will give you unlimited lightsabers. Here it goes:

Duplicated Lightsaber Trick
Contributed By: Seiji
While onboard the Ebon Hawk, equip Visas with a lightsaber. Go to your
workbench, and choose to upgrade an item. Go to the lightsaber list, and select
the saber Visas has equipped. Select the color crystal, and change it to a
different one and assemble. Select the color crystal again, but DON'T change
it, just hit assemble again with the same crystal that is on there. This should
cause an extra, duplicate saber to appear in your inventory. With the new saber
in your inventory, save your game and reload it, and you will offically have
the duplicate saber.
If you want to start the game with a lightsaber already, go to the pinned topic on the kotor hacking forum for all the resources that I put together from various authors.
