Yeah, if he could shoot lightning from his fingers, I can’t see why he’d even bother with a lightsaber.

If I had to guess, I’d say the original intent was for the Emperor to be beyond the need for any such weapon, but along the way Lucas decided it would be cooler if every force user was a gymnast and had something colorful to twirl around.
