    Re: unnamed youth defendants, in the US legal system we call minors “infants”, which produces some amusing court documents about infant defendants assaulting people or crashing cars. Amusing because I picture an infant in the Latin sense (too young to speak), rather than the under 16 or 18 years sense.
    Also, here is what I was hoping the outro would be:

    Baby dressed as a Wookie: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh!
    C-3PO: He made a fair move. Screaming about it can’t help you.
    Han Solo: Let him have it. It’s not wise to upset a baby dressed as a Wookiee.
    C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.
    Han Solo: That’s ’cause droids don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Babies dressed as Wookiees are known to do that.
    Baby dressed as a Wookie: Grrf.
    C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the Baby dressed as a Wookie win.

    I like to think that’s why parents sometimes let their children win games.
