To be honest? What was Star Wars? George Lucas!!! It was cool back then in the 70 ties! Nothing ever before was like it..and it had character! 2 little shiny robots that behaved like humans! The n th sequal of something that was major in the past...! My advice? Start something new dont copy Star Wars...and give it some heart again! Put the industry to shame!!!😉 my 2 cents..
Well that's a lot of hats !
So why not finish the project but making it super generic? Strip all star wars terms out. Then when the game is finished, allow for modders to make a conversion mod that will reinsert the star wars material? That way he can finish it and we all can get what we want and no one has to give up on their dreams.
Cary, NC (March 19, 2018) — Epic Games has released Unreal Engine 4 support for the Magic Leap One: Creator Edition, a software toolkit for the early development of experiences for Magic Leap’s personal spatial computing platform, as part of a larger partnership between the two companies.
Magic Leap today took the next step toward launch, previewing their platform and its development resources. Individuals and teams can sign up for the first look at its Creator Portal, access to the Lumin SDK and to receive updates on the Magic Leap ecosystem.

Alongside development support for the Magic Leap One hardware, Epic has released a collection of resources including Unreal Engine 4 documentation, a robust sample project demonstrating Magic Leap One’s unique features and a custom Unreal Editor for creating content using the Lumin SDK.
Developers can access these resources via the preview documentation and obtain the custom toolset on the Unreal Engine tab of the Epic Games launcher, or build from the Unreal Editor source on GitHub. Full support for Magic Leap One will ship in Unreal Engine 4.20, due for release this summer.
