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).
