Maybe it's just my nostalgia flaring up, but for me nothing beats the good old Rebellion Era for a romping Star Wars game. Blasting Stormtroopers, outrunning TIE fighters and the Force as an "ancient religion" virtually lost to the ravages of the Emperor's New Order. It just doesn't get better than that.
I'm also a fan of the Tales of the Jedi comics and thus have some fondness for the period.
In an upcoming campaign that I'm preparing to run however, I have decided to set it just after the events of Revenge of the Sith and intend to run it up bascially to the signing of the Corellian Treaty and Mon Mothma's drafting of the Declaration of Rebellion. Of course, that leaves a large period of time to explore and adventures to be had. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.
