The Sims 4 is a Life simulation video game developed by Maxis and published Electronic Arts. It is the fourth main title in The Sims franchise. The title revolves around players creating and controlling or manipulating "Sims", or characters designed with unique appearances and personalities. Expansion packs for the game add new content and features, as do new updates. The Sims 4 features content from the Star Wars franchise, including special costumes and decorations added based on characters from the franchise, as well as a DLC expansion pack based on Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

A content update on October 27, 2014, added costumes to the game as part of a Halloween-themed update. Female Sims, teen and older, could wear a themed Leia Organa with the appearances of Leia Organa, consisting of a fake hairpiece and a full outfit, each designed to mimic Organa's classic appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Male Sims, teen and older, could wear a Rebellion flight suit, as well as a Darth Vader helmet and outfit. Children could wear a Yoda mask and outfit. A content patch in June 2016 made all teen and up costumes available for both genders. In December 2019, these costumes were also added to The Sims Mobile.
