How does this work with the action window.

1. I picked the objective to attack

2. I declared my attackers and moved them up.

3. Action window

4. LS played Jedi Mind Trick and targeted a character unit and placed one focus token (force was wth DS)

5. Then LS declared defenders.

My question is does that keep the targeted character unit in the attacker position with a focus token or does it move them back to play area focused?

Is the declaring of attacker and the moving them up one action? Or are those two actions?

Firstly there is no "moving up action"

Engagement
Resolution

Active player declares attackers. (Unit is declared as attacker)


PLAYER ACTIONS (Jedi Mind Trick would be played here)


Opponent declares defenders.
 

Jedi Mind Trick would keep the character exhausted yes but he is still part of the engagement as it was done after attackers were declared.

To clarify, the "moving up action" is more a gesture you make with the cards to make it clear to yourself and your opponent, which cards on both sides of the table are currently participating in the engagement.

So, in the OP's example, it would go like this;

I declare an attacker against your Objective

*Action Window*

You play Jedi Mind Trick on my attacker

Option A: You declare no defenders, the attacking unit cannot focus to strike and thus wins edge by default.  I could play edge cards, either to clean out my hand or dump a Target of Opportunity in there to add a damage to the engaged Objective.  After that, since it's an unopposed engagement, the engaged Objective would take 1 damage.

Option B: You declare a defender or defenders.  Edge battle happens.  After the edge battle, my attacking unit sits there powerless with a Focus token, and you resolve your defending strikes.

Either way, the engagement still progresses, but the Focus'ed attacker cannot really do much other than be there for unopposed damage, or get totally wrecked by a defending unit.
