I think the gore and warfare etc. is much more disturbing than nudity and sexy clothing in Star Wars. It is ok in our society to show kids war, death, killing, torture, gore to a kidfriendly degree in kidsshows, games, etc. ... but bare skin is a taboo? I do not want to offend any Americans here, but for me as European/German, I see too many puritan doublestandards in the US society. I don't want to rant about that here now, but as said above, nudity is natural. Only by being ashamed of it which is unnatural, we create a taboo and an interest in the "forbidden". So to speak society creates its own naughty minds because of its taboos, of which some are not needed. But that is cultural precedence and baggage of the last centuries of eduction of generation after generation that has yet to find back to their natural order of life, free of not religious moral but religious dogma and wrong religious inspired lore. Separating that from the truth religions bring is hard these days sadly for many. I mean, what does more damage? War or Love? Be it the love for beauty, the love for a character or person, a ship... Not everyone is a naughty fanboy/author just because one likes sexy... Of course everybody gets naughty at times, is horny or whatever. No denying that. And of course authors and fans alike should be careful and mind where/how to live out their fantasy world. But the outrage about bare skin is more telling about those who rage than the thing they rage about. Against the believes of some, even old ages does not lead all people to abandon sex, love and nudity. Some live it freely still. Let them if they want to. The GFFA, as a mirror of our own world may have all that too, and even stuff that is weird to us or against some nations cultural norm. Not neccessarily does that need to be shown in the sourcematerial, but it should not offend anyone. Depending on how you view it, how tolerant you are, you have less problems with that. Be like "Ok, maybe that is Han and Leias thing... not mine but let them have their fun. I would have written them different." But to condemn it is wrong I think. Every part of society condemns something.. not all the same. you can't make it right for everyone and even if some parts of SW are sexualised, so be it. So long it is ok in a way and targeting the right age group we are fine. And so far it did that. I could quote way more sources with worse examples than this topic already had mentioned. And in real life I know way worse cases than what SW does... have you seen what kids wear these days? I rather worry about these 12 year old kids with makeup, tatoos and learning to shoot guns in the US already at young age (not all, but too many do). Or ridicolous doll-esque beauty contests with kids younger than 10 even... some documentaries on tv about US way of life are really shocking. Even Europe got its way too many flaws. Not denying that. Heck even I got mine. And it is no secret that sex sells and product is styled to sell more than for message or else. Also, when you are horny you view everything sexualised... even a rock, trust me I know! Look at the same thing when back to normal and you just see as someone else posted above a different scene, two lovers kissing instead of Jaina in a hot dress. Psychology is here at play too. Not everyone is a nudist, but nudists do have a point that nude is natural. Not everyone needs to live like that obviously, but I always cringe when I see people act as if some bare skin is something special. I worry more what the person has to hide than what it does show. Clothes are more sexy than full nudity in my opinion since they have the ability to direct attention to specific parts of the body, to hide what may look less yummy and to expose only the pro and not the contra. Guess why many women use that to fool us men. But enough with the sociology lesson now. In Star Wars, we need not fear or condemn sexualisation and bare skin if natural-minded education and tolerance is there. If one though can't do that, we need to be mindful of those people and not overload SW with sexualisation (like comics love indeed) but keep it at a healthy level so to speak. That level may differ for everyone's own opinion, but so far the worst I saw is the mention of "huttese pornography" in planet of twilight due to kids wondering and googling that world maybe if they do not know it already. Most other stuff is "fade to black", implied or in other ways acceptable even if sometimes outside cultural norm like interspecies couples (with some species inspired by earth animals, yikes... Corran!). Aside Planet of Twilight, Leonia Tavira was another questionable creation, given her background with her deceased "husband" as well as her telling way she has with her crew. But these, while not explicit, are way more disturbing cases in my opinion than Tahiri and Ben where nothing really happened (except fanboys minds that may continue the train of thought beyond what was in canon!). rant over... PS: Sexualisation and what is natural/realistic was in the movies, so the same level is ok for the EU. Books like Deathtroopers are experiments and for adults and can go beyond movie level thus. NJO too is for adults. Others are more all age and thus limited, Denning boarders the accepted edge of ok but so far is more making use of it for fun rather than offense, and he is not alone there, given Allston's own fun and other authors doing the same. Comics should give us more diversity in body tapes and breastsizes... Dark Times was good there until an artist change lead to a sizechange.. in the end though it is nothing special. It all depends on how you view it and what you tell the kid this means. Talk to your kids if they love star wars, don't make them fear or sexualise stuff that is not really more sexual than what one can see every day outside on the streets!
