Which SAGA game? ... I recall Marvel's SAGA system card game was not all that bad.... Then again, it was superheroes we were playing.

The new edition of Star Wars is called Star Wars: Saga Edition. IT is presumably the prototype for 4th Edition DND. One giant step backwards for mankind..

90% of all statistics are wrong.

In so many ways you can not imagine.... Their Player's Handbook may be arriving after FantasyCraft hits which will be huge!

personally, the only thing that Saga does better is a decent dumbing down of the basic rules for a LARP or the like where there isn't as much to remember without the character sheet. Which has led to me trying to find a copy of the two WEG Star Wars LARP books

Star Wars always ran better on the WEG system in general....

I've only got a few of them from WEG and none of them are the core book. I'd inherited two of the five I've got from a friend who didn't want them (Tales of the Jedi Companion and I think the other is Beasts of the Galaxy or something like that) and I'd bought three of the Adventures books. However, while they looked nice, there seemed to be far more things required in it to cover the different abilities and from what other friends have told me, it would have trouble with the Rise of the Empire era

Actually, having a number of WEG SW books and having run and played it, I'm curious.  What abilities are you referring to and what about the Fall of the Republic period Assuming were talking circa 20 BY is hard to do?  Admittedly you'd have to stat out Clone troopers and Trade Federation droids and what not.

From what it looks like, having a fully fledged jedi padawan from the very beginning would be difficult, especially with having non-jedi as well.

At start of play?  Not an issue as long as you accept that a padawan as shown in the movies is not a 'starting' character.  No different then starting as a third or forth level character.  Also, the main book has at least two force using archetypes if I recall, Young Jedi comes specifically to mind.

The original WEG Star Wars book had 3: Failed Jedi, Quixotic Jedi, and Young Jedi....

They later revamped part of the system but the original set is still the best with some of the original missions like Tatooine Manhunt, Crisis in Cloud City, and Victory Down? (it involved a Victory Class Star Destroyer and having to make your way through it)
