D20 Star Wars
Star Wars is certainly not a new name in pen and paper role-playing games. As I outlined in my article: A History of Star Wars RPGs, the Star Wars franchise enjoyed several renditions of table top role-playing games, starting in 1988. This edition was followed by several revised editions, but the D20 version didn’t come around until the year 2000, published by RPG giant, Wizards of the Coast.
Basing this version on their popular D20 system meant more flexibility for gamers to transfer their characters from one campaign setting, such as D20 Modern or D20 Future, easily converting their characters, or perhaps taking characters from the Star Wars campaign setting and inserting them into their own D20 based campaign.
In addition, gamers who were already familiar with the D20 way of life would not have to learn a new system from ground up to play D20 Star Wars.
