Star Wars : The Roleplaying Game was the first licensed roleplaying game set in the Star Wars universe. It was published by West End Game from 1987 until they lost the licence in 1998.
Three versions of the main rulebook were published: first edition, second edition, and « Revised and Expanded » second edition. All three were based on West End Games’ D6 System.
The material produced by West End Games was one of the major sources of Expanded Universe material before the publication of Heir to the Empire in 1991 sparked new interest in Star Wars publications, and remained an important source of EU material afterward as well. Being one of the first sources giving numbers and data to the universe shown in the films, several of the statements given by the sourcebooks have been retconned or corrected to better reflect the films and Expanded Universe fiction.
