After reading a bunch of D&D sites and seeing how they all harp on having at least three weapons, a main melee, a back-up melee, and a ranged, I've been inclined to wonder what sort of weapons are common for Star Wars characters. I know that Jedi carry lightsabres, but does anyone carry a knife, a sap, or even weapons from other d20 games like a crossbow? Generally every character I make carries a melee weapon of some sort even if their main weapon is a blaster. If they don't have a melee weapon, it's because they're martial artists. All of my Jedi are martial artists because of Defensive Martial Arts.
