Ok it's official Sinister, you scare me...*backs away from Mister Sinister* As for the Star Wars Idea, I gotta admit, you have my attention. Granted I'm not a Star Wars fan, still you have my attention. And I think I might have tried something like it. Not an exact retelling, but similar.
I had a Campaign going between 'Revenge of the Sith', and 'A New Hope'. The Empire had just come to power, and the Rebel Alliance was just a Political Movement, not the Freedom Fighters that they were in the trilogy. I basically told the Party that I wasn't allowing anyone to play a Jedi unless they could give a plausible reason for how they survived the purge. I also told them that I was ignoring official canon, so if they wanted to kill Darth Vader and be Emperor Palpatine's new apprentice I wouldn't stop them.
Long Story short, Jabba the Hutt ended up having a disabled Victory-class Stardestroyer sold to him, the Sand People were wiped out of existence (The Party justified this as self defense), and Tatooine is now a Tourist attraction because the party decided to create the Grand Canyon through orbital bombardment.
