I know it's a bit early (way too early?) to be asking for this sort of thing, but does anyone have any ideas regarding implementing Talent Trees that represent "pet" type companions? Waaaaaaaaaay back in d6 I played a kid (literally, the template "The Kid") who eventually had a pet monkey lizard. I can imagine other, similar things where something might be an assett that directly effects gameplay, but not warrant a character sheet of it's own… an armory droid, maybe even an astromech. That sort of thing.
I know there are a lot of logistical issues here ("but what if the storm trooper wants to shoot your droid?"), but it seems like something that a community as smart as I've typically found the RPG community to be could work out, unless I'm the only one who cares about this sort of thing (because I already know I'm not savvy enough to do it on my own, or I wouldn't be asking you all)
