I gotta say, I like this forum a lot so far. I was an avid poster on IGN's forums for a long time, but this community seems a lot.... well lets just leave it at better, haha. My name is John, but you can call me Starmin (or starman, whatever works). 20 years old, big fan of the SW universe. Became a SW fan when: I saw the Special Editions in theaters as a 4 year old. First movies I ever saw In the cinemas. I've never been the same since. Favorite SW thing: The Kotor games. They completely changed the way I thought about vidogames, they rekindled my love for the classic trilogy in a time when, as a kid, I was so entranced in everything with the prequels, and they contain some of the most memorable characters I've ever gotten to know. Good stuff. Favorite thing about Star Wars: The unique mixture of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I've never much liked "hard" science fiction. I don't really care much about realistic science in my Sci Fi. What I love is the iconography of Sci-Fi. The spaceships, the huge metropolises, the laser guns. Star Wars gives you that in all its escapist glory, and mixes in some awesome fantasy elements for good measure. The force is a real game changer that sets SW apart from any comparable universe. I love it. Other things I like: All forms of storytelling, the Chargers (we're going to be good next year, just wait), Younglife youth outreach, San Diego life (I never go to comic con; I just take a 20 minute drive down to the convention center and walk around ) Well, that's me in a nutshell! Nice to meet all of you!
