Star Wars fans have different reasons for loving the films, but the dazzling array of futuristic weapons that science-nonfiction has yet to invent is high on many a devotee's list.
All of the films' events lead toward a massive gun fight or an epic lightsaber battle between two mighty warriors. Those clashes are a violent, tasty dessert at the end of a long, delicious dinner.
Even if you think the films are too violent, you have to admit to one basic fact. You can't have a movie about "wars" without weapons. Unless, of course, you're making some kind of Care Bears claptrap where hugs and kisses are used as weapons. And if you are making a movie like that, please stop on behalf of all humanity.
So, how well do you know the names of weapons from the Star Wars arsenal? Find out by taking this weapons quiz (you can see the answers here).
