Honor + Intrigue would be another good game for Star Wars. They even have an rules book for scifi with laser swords.... (H+I grew out of BoL as I recall).In 1984 we created SWARP ( star wars using MERP). Played loads.
Didn't care for any other version until we made one using Barbarians of Lemuria. It's fast and furious and fun ( unlike the other FFF game which is never not quite there).
