The crawls also follow a notable pattern based on their paragraphs :

Paragraph 1 : Always describes the state of the galaxy/society (there is war, there is a rebellion, there are seperatists etc).

Paragraph 2 : Explains how the current plot was instigated, usually via something that has just happened prior to the film (Leia stole the plans, Grevious invaded Coruscant etc).

Paragraph 3 : Set up the first scenes we see in the film (Vader is dispatching probes, two Jedi are trying to rescue the Chancellor etc).

- My original crawl in 1.0 : 111 words !
- My working progress crawl posted above : 132 words !
- CptPriceless' above : 93 words

Wordcount : 79
It also fits the three paragraph structure.
I would say don't limit yourself to the average. However, it does look like it's enough. All that matters now is wording. Let's see what we can do.
