I have been playing RPG's for over 20 years and I must say that Shadowrun with its dice pools is one of my all time favourite systems. I'm a big Star Wars fan and have every Star Wars RPG book, through WEG and WOTC. I cannot stand D20, so never played WOTC but I could understand it at least. I have just received Edge of Empire, looked at it and feel like throwing it against a wall. Why oh why did you have to follow the terrible latest edition of WHFRP. Until I find a way of converting it to a reasonable number based system I won't waste my time playing it or introducing my players to it. These dice are just unnecessarily confusing.
