Force power "protection" is the most complained about light force power by those that don't have it. The force power protects you from weapon damage and from most force powers. The only exceptions are force powers "throw", "pull", and "blinding". The force power drains all your mana and lasts for about 30 secs to a minute. To get force power "protection" you must select only light force powers for a multiplayer game, or remain true to your path in the single player game. To remain true, you must assign all force stars to light and neutral force powers only. The best way to beat someone using force power "protection" is to strip them of all their weapons and keep them from getting to a mana powerup. When the protection runs out, strike at them with your most powerful force powers or weapons.
