Interestingly, I also found Yoda's sabers somewhat uninteresting in the past, but when I started studying the design (I built a rudimentary Yoda replica as a practise couple of years ago), I found this being much more than anticipated. Seeing master Yoda in action helped too, first in AOTC, then ROTS and finally in the opening episode of TCW series.
If I weren't a blade brightness junkie, I'd shift into static props in a heartbeat!
