how does exactly work a melee attack without a weapon?
I have the game in italian and the rules aren't clear. Do i use a green+yellow die, count the damage and then add + 2damage if i have a surge? or I only add damage if i have a surge? And how many surges can i use?

It works exactly like any other melee attack. You can use 1 surge to add extra damage and 1 surge to recover strain.

The
: 2mb is only available if you pass the
test though.

So,
- Declare attack with a valid target (must be adjacent hostile figure)).
- Perform
test. If it gets at least one success (
),
: 2mb is available during spend surges step.
- Roll dice, 1 green, 1 yellow and the appropriate defense die/dice.
perform the rest of the attack steps in order. Also the hero's
: recover 1
ability is usable.

Abilities in the hero's sheet and class cards that are not item cards can be used if they refer to attack or melee attack. (But not the ones that refer to attacks performed with a weapon.)

It's simply a way to simulate a melee attack using the weapons we've all had since birth (hands, feets, knees, elbows, head, etc...)

Green + Yellow, especially for characters who aren't likely to pass the strength test to get the surge ability, does not exactly make a killing machine. Without the surge ability, it's not even likely to take out a Stormtrooper in one hit!

Fortunately the mission rules do require the heroes to go get their weapons back, so any silliness shouldn't last too long. Nice to let the wookiee have a good excuse to rip someone's arms off, though.
