I don't know where this came from, but stay with me. Many, MANY older men in the star wars universe have facial hair, perhaps as an OOU tool to add distinction or provide a visual difference (Han vs Thrackan) I guess my question is...it would seem like something Luke would do, and yet he's never been portrayed as such...we always get the youthful "film era" Luke...kind of like in Jedi Knight when Kyle meets with Luke and Luke looks and sounds like a petulant child...the simple touch of a beard could bring a fresh face to Luke in advancing years. Are they afraid of it? I mean the Mindor image makes sense, but could we not see a Luke with a beard in LOTF or now FOTJ? Or Legacy's force ghost being the spiting image of Luke circa Endor? Heck, facial hair might make it easier for him to pass unnoticed...his boyish character is well known to all...a good goatee could make him almost unrecognizable. or is that the point...that he maintains his Endor appearance on purpose? Could he not have one cause his daddy never got to have one? Honor thy father with a razor? It's a bizarre topic...what is the significance of such grooming habits in Star Wars...and why is it such a predisposition of many secondary characters, but not the main ones (i think Han has had facial hair a couple times as disguises, or perhaps when he was in his post-chewie "funk"...but it always comes off). Thoughts?
