Character skills are what define your character: their physical attributes, their mental strength, their hand-eye coordination.
The higher a character's Dexterity, the more likely he will be able to land a punch, hit a target with a blaster, or strike another character with a lightsaber.
Characters with this skill enhance the overall performance of their group and of their own NPCs in atmospheric combat.

 Star Wars - PopCultureReference   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Star Wars is the name of a series of science fantasy movies, a literary franchise, and a series of video games based on the ideas of filmmaker and writer George Lucas, which consist of numerous prequels, sequels, and literary adaptations.
Star Wars stresses the self-destructive nature of anger and hate, summed up in Yoda's words ("Fear is the path to the dark side: fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering") as well as placing one's feelings for certain people aside.
Star Wars was also a daily newspaper comic strip from 1979 to 1984, for the bulk of its run written by Archie Goodwin and drawn by Al Williamson.

 Star Wars and Wagner's Ring
Star Wars was the first film with a world-wide distribution to use the new Dolby stereo-optical sound system, a system which later has made possible the many surround systems.
In Star Wars the central conflict is between lust for power, symbolized by the Death Star and exemplified by the actions of Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine and Jabba the Hutt on the one hand, and love, exemplified by the actions of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke, Leia, Han Solo, R2D2 and 3PO on the other hand.
Common in the Star Wars series and the Ring is the fact that this conflict not only is central, it is in part a conflict of life and death, and it is a conflict where the son, at least for a time being, does not know he is facing his father.

 Lego Star Wars - GameCritics.com
Star Wars fans who hated the prequel trilogy still have to go out and buy the game, and here's why: The game's secret, unlockable level basically promises that if this game sells well enough, they'll make a sequel based on the original trilogy.
No, this feels like the ultimate Star Wars experience, made by obsessive fans that happened upon the revolutionary discovery that the only true way to express the majesty of Star Wars was through the intricate simplicity of Lego.
Lego Star Wars is primarily a 3rd-person brawler, where players run a variety of characters around levels themed after the three prequel Star Wars films, shooting at enemies with blasters and cutting them into pieces with light sabers.

 A Short History of Action Figures
But the success of Star Wars figures couldn't last forever; several years after "Return of the Jedi", Kenner was running out of characters and ideas, and cancelled the Star Wars line in 1985.
At first, the "new" Star Wars figures were quite muscular-this is because super hero action figures were the "in thing" at the time.
Response was overwhelming, as Star Wars fans and toy collectors alike lined up outside and waited for hours, hoping to be the first to own a Darth Maul or Obi-Wan Kenobi figure.

 GameSpy: Star Wars: The Clone Wars Review
Released late last year for the PS2 and GCN, Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been ported to the Xbox with the significant addition of Xbox Live support, and the same relentlessly mediocre shoot-'em-up action.
And "frantic" is the key word, as there's always something to blast into pieces; at the higher levels, there are usually massive firefights raging in the background as you participate in a massive firefight in the foreground.
The lowlight of The Clone Wars is the occasional sequence in which your Jedi-avatar is on foot, marred by character animation so unfortunate that I laughed out loud the first time I saw it in "motion." Yoda's CG fight sequence at the end of Episode II: Attack of the Clones is stunningly realistic by comparison.

 Filmtracks: Star Wars: A New Hope (John Williams)
With Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Superman revealed to audiences within a year's time, Williams cemented thematic orchestral works as the must-have for studios of Hollywood's Bronze Age (largely consisting of the 1980's in the last years of the pre-digital era).
This is not to say, however, that bold statements of theme in Star Wars aren't worthy of their place in history; the "Throne Room" cue alone, with its ultra-heroic brass of truly epic proportions, is a piece that remains awe-inspiring decades later, especially when heard in live concert quality.
In this case, the 33 minutes from Star Wars was recorded in December of 1977 and was released on LP record at that time.

 DVD Review - The Star Wars Trilogy
It seems that the galaxy is embroiled in a massive civil war between the evil Galactic Empire and the freedom-loving Rebel Alliance.
Too much is predictable here (such as the appearance of a second Death Star) and too many compromises were made for the younger audience members (the very presence of the Ewoks, for example) which is especially noticeable after the more adult themes of the previous installment.
Then, after the second Death Star is destroyed, when the film cuts to the various celebrations around the galaxy, Naboo is now included among the planets we see.

 Star Wars: The Changes - Part One in Editorial > Articles at DVDActive
With the recent release of the trilogy on DVD I decided that now was a good time to try and catalogue the evolution of these films from the 1977, 1980, and 1983 releases, to their present day incarnations.
This is one of those classic Star Wars moments that has stayed with me since childhood, and is a good example of how the original films managed to be humorous without resorting to slapstick and fart jokes.
In the original release an echo effect was added to their voices in order to lend the Death Star a sense of scale, but as most of you will know this wasn’t the most convincing of effects.

The Star Wars saga is often described as a modern myth, but it's also a great series of movies.
When a major character cuts a swathe through nameless minor characters with the greatest of ease, it’s not just because he has a bigger part in the film, it’s because he’s got the Force on his side and they don’t.
Hapless minor characters are forced to rely on blasters, which a lightsaber can easily reflect back.

 Star Wars: Biography | Harrison Ford
Though he landed minor roles in a number of films and television shows in the mid-1960s as a studio contract player, Ford found it difficult to make ends meet.
Lest anyone think his stardom was a flash in the pan, Ford cemented his leading-man status with his turn as Indiana Jones in the phenomenally successful Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
He has since explored radically diverse characters, ranging from the brooding detective of the futuristic Blade Runner to the manic inventor of The Mosquito Coast (1986).
