How much WEG Star Wars mattered

To the Expanded Universe, roughly this much.

I was there when it was first announced, and my potential players went “oh yeah, I remember those” in a vague way.

I was there before that as well, GMing its direct antecedent Ghostbusters.

I was there when someone went “count 4+ successes instead of adding all the dice up” and created Shadowrun and then Storyteller.

I largely used the WEG version just a couple years ago, although I did use the count-successes tweak, and ads/disads as well, and looser Force powers.

I still think the printed stats for the main characters are too much, though. Still, can’t have everything.
