Well, if you want, the stormtroopers could simply be 0-level worshipers,
there are certinly enough of those.

The fighters in the Star Wars sphere could also be much less expensive
since they have so many ship daocks building them.  Oh, oh, got an idea!
Wouldn't it be cool if the Grand Moff Tarkin was a rogue arcane (same
build, same dour attitude, just blue), and he could supply all the ships
and helms to the empire for a reduced price, or for free.

I had this idea too, but how would Luke fly a one-seater spelljammer
without magic capabilitym that's why I stipulated that he be a dual- (or
perhaps multi, if you allow it, and yes I do know know it goes against
the rules of humans not being dual-classed, but there's an exception to
every rule!) class mage/psionicist (or even a mage/psioinicist/fighter to
account for his warrior skills).  The mage part could handle the flying
while the psionicist could be the Jedi part.  Vader could be a
mage/fighter/psionicist, as could Kenobi.  You could even make a kit for
Jedi, being a mage/psionicist/fighter.  Yoda, of course, would just be a
psionicist.

See above to solve this problem.  Otherwise you'd have to supply some
kind of new helm that works without a mage or priest.

Well, these are my suggestions, love 'em or chuck 'em!
