Sorry but Tatooine is basically the intergalactic equivalent of that small town you grew up in.

Like save the galaxy, or study Psychology at Manchester.

13. With about a third of the year left, things suddenly got serious...

Getting that 40% on your first set of uni exams is pretty comparable with taking on the Death Star really.

15. And it all ended with a big celebration
