Who else thinks this would be a cool idea:
The class system is kept but it doesn't effect your character's apperance. Instead it only effects your weapons (and specail things like jet packs) and your apperance would be made in a character creation system in which you get to choose the color, armor(commander shoulder pads, visors, etc.), and in the case of rebels their face/skin. For specail units though, like the super battle driod or wookie, you wouldn't be able to alter their apperance. Also heros like jedi could be customized to, robes and skin color for example, and you could pick from a set of special abilities to pick.
Tell me what you think of my idea.
