This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It is possible, but you can't use Star Wars or any other trademarked names, nor any content from existing games (graphics, sound, etc.) in your game. So, essentially, while possible, it will be a challenge to save the Universe spirit. And anyway, for any such serious attempts (like if your money is involved) you should consult a lawyer.

Seems like i have to create my own Universe. – LeonMaxx Oct 30 '12 at 12:50

It's primarily a trademark issue. You wouldn't be able to do this without trademark infringement (and also, probably copyright infringement).
