Like it says on the label, what fields would one have in a Star Wars-based campaign?

You could probably lift the crafting system from Star Wars: the Old Republic wholesale and come close~

Crafting Fields
  Armortech (rigid armors)
  Armstech (tech weapons)
  Synthweaving (soft armors)
  Artifice (lightsabers, holochrons, crystal tech)
  Cybertech (cyber, droid hardware)
  Biochem (medical skills and stims)

Gathering Fields
  Archeology (supplies Artifice)
  Bioanalysis (supplies Biochem)
  Scavenging (supplies Armortech, armstech, cybertech)
  Slicing (information systems, droid software)

Throw in Vehicle Fields~
  Riding Beasts
  Speeders
  Starfighters
  Starships
~and you're looking pretty cozy.
At your own pace: Do. It. Now.

Can a mod shift this to LTI please? I can't believe I stuck this in the wrong forum.

Wouldn't the 1st three of these be checks rather than fields?

  The gathering skills in SWtOR aren't precisely sexy, but it's a setting that treats the intermediate components as important goods unto themselves. The other category from that game that I initially skipped was the "mission skills" which might actually make for better fields than the gathering skills with a little tweaking~

Diplomacy (produces favors and some rare ingredients)
Treasure Hunting (absorbs archeology, used to 'produce' ancient Force-relics)
Underworld Trade (black market/smuggling field, 'produces' contraband and illegal goods)
Investigation - probably keep as a separate skill rather than field.

  Scavenging still has some legs in my mind but might be better handled as a feat that allows you to retrieve value/specialized good form all types of junk and not just those related to junk you have specific matching fields for.

  Bioanalysis can still be justified as a thing apart from biotech - though it might be handed off as using Survival to produce income. Again possible feat fodder.
At your own pace: Do. It. Now.
