So this started a few years ago after one of my groups trips to GenCon Indy.  I bought a game called Campy Creatures  a card bidding game with a theme of monster movies.   Vampires, Werewolves, kaiju etc.  One of the rules says, the player who had most recently saw a Creature Feature gets to go first.   Naturally, I usually go first because I love these types of movies.  But one of my friends said he had just saw at that time the latest Star Wars movie-and it counted as one because of all the aliens in it.

I said no, because to me the monster needs to be focus of the story in order to count as one, but I guess the argument could be made that they are because of all the creatures in them.

What's your opinion.

Vote and explain your answer.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

Creatures are not the focus of a Star Wars movie, either as protagonists or antagonists.

But do you understand That none of this will matter Nothing can take your pain away

STAR WARS a Creature Feature?  Sounds like a rule check for the game; Alex makes a good point. 

If you want to view paradise . . . simply look around and view it!

Mere presence of a creature does not a creature feature make.

Hamlet has a comic scene; is it a comedy?

I get that a creature should be the feature of a creature feature, but aren't people creatures too?  And if by creature, you mean monster, I think at the end of The Monster Club, humans are said to be the greatest monsters of all.
