In a galaxy far, far away, storm troopers surrender their spaceship to the Belarussian president, as he defeats their leader Darth Vader with one impressive karate kick.

George Lucas' sprawling "Star Wars" universe has always lent itself to games _ even if they were as simple as pretend light saber duels in your backyard.
Heroes and villains from the worlds of horror, fantasy and sci-fi shared the stage at Spike TVs annual Scream Awards.
For years, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have lampooned everything, from Scientology to Tiger Woods, Prius drivers to Islam, Britney Spears to the great state of New Jersey.
Vader, who accepted the award personally, said he's found it difficult to concentrate on his work recently because he's constantly "living in fear of how George Lucas is going to digitally enhance you for the next DVD."
