It doesn’t.

I think your inclination and MIB.6361 are correct: common sense dictates that if only part of your body is grappled, it is the most restricted, and other parts less so.

In your specific example of legs being grappled, I’d allow the use of any hand-held weapons with no effect on Reach or Range. I’d probably assign a penalty to attack rolls, anywhere from a -1 to -4 depending on how important footwork is to wielding the weapon.
