...this time one of Ixoye's from last September.

Matt walks into a crowded room, and is almost immediately attacked and beaten severely. Nearby, Luke Skywalker looks at Boba Fett and says "It probably should have been you." What's going on?

Is Matt you? If so, then he is a HAM,yes?
Are the others in the room HAMs or HAFs? Is Luke? Is Boba?

Too obvious question: Are you at a Star Wars convention?

Good one to pick, one of my favorites!

Is this happening in real life? In a movie? TV show?
Do all the people in the room have something in common? Only one thing? Many things?

"Attacked" and "beaten" are words often used in vid games and other types of games.

And the beaten folks are the avatars.

IOW, was real-guy Matt perfectly healthy when he went away?

Was Matt attacked simply because of the way he looked? Because of something he said? Because of an action that he made?

Are any of these related to what the people in the room have in common:

Age? Gender? Ethnicity? Hobbies/interests? Language? Employer? Birthday? Physical feature?

Longshot: Did Matt, a guy, walk into a womens' restroom?

So the room includes males and females?
All adults? Various ages?
Does the group have a certain age range?
Are children in the room? Middle aged adults? Elderly people?
Is there an event taking place in the room? If so...meeting? party? funeral?
Are all the people in the room there for the same reason? Were they all invited? Were any of them invited? Was Matt invited?
Are any of the people in the room wearing a name tag? Is Matt wearing one?
Are "Luke" and "Boba" wearing Star Wars costumes?
Are these names aliases of the two people?
If "Boba" had gone into the room, would he have gotten attacked? Does "Luke" think Boba would not have been attacked if he had gone into the room?
When Matt enters the room, does anyone in the room recognize him? Is anyone in the room expecting him to be there? Is anyone specifically watching for Matt to come in?
If someone who simply resembled Matt had gone into the room, would that person have been treated the same as Matt was treated?

I correct myself: That last answer should be a straight-up Yope. Don't focus on it too much.

A police station? Had they stopped there to ask directions, and it really would have been better for a Star Wars character to enter the station?

**********SPOILER**********

Luke and Boba are actors in a fanfic play based on Star Wars; Matt is one of the stage crew, and is therefore dressed in black with a ski mask on. Before their last show, they decide to head to the bank to get money so they can buy food for the cast party afterwards. They drive up to the bank and Matt volunteers to go in and use the ATM there. However, Matt is still in his stage crew getup, and as soon as he walks in, people think he's a robber and pounce on him. As this happens, Luke realizes that it would have been a much better idea to send Boba in.

However, after posting the puzzle statement and answering a few questions, I realized that it would have been even better to have Luke go in, as people might have thought Boba was a robber, but fewer would have expected Luke to be one.

Nice work everyone, nice solve Ixoye, new puzzle (with an original statement) at the bottom.
