Not permanently you mean. In the games where you play as Luke for example you can die, repeatedly.
Just you mean in the "official" single player storyline they don't go like "Well, Luke Died, you went to his funeral. The End"
And of course in Multiplayer you can pick a skin of a movie character and die thousands of times, nobody cares.
But I know they're more lenient for MP when it comes to "official stuff."
Games are just the lowest end of "canon" possible because of the difficulties involved in terms of accuracy.
