A group of Jedi and Sith took to New York City’s Times Square on Tuesday night to do battle and strike dramatic poses.

The event was staged by BioWare to publicize its Star Wars: The Old Republic online role-playing game.

Perhaps the best part of the event, however, was when the fans got to join in.
