Not in the d20 system. Branch out a bit from d20 Starwars to d20 D&D. There you have Charisma as the governing attribute of sorcerers and warlocks, characters who can wield magic intuitively through force of will, rather than methodical study and ritual.
I'd imagine it works somewhat similarly in the d20 Starwars setting with its "magic", the Force.
