Since the question is phrased "What the empire did", the answer should be STRIKE back. Grammatically speaking.

Stuck back is just a silly answer to this question. The question would be improved if the required answer was "Strikes back", because that was the name of the film after all.

Maybe accept "Strike Back" for what the empire did? Struck back is awfully specific and the idea is the same

I eventually got it but spent a lot of time trying to get 'back in time' to work for Marty McFly. Yes, the movie title is the better answer but I couldn't get the Huey Lewis song out of my head.

The person who created the quiz last created a quiz in 2013. So it is likely he/she is gone so I doubt any of you are going see any changes. Strikes vs Struck - stupid. If we are really going to accept the past tense then the answer should be "lost".

Although to be fair, we rarely visit our back catalog. This quiz was last revised in 2013, so it's been eight years. I am a believer in continuous improvement however, so we eventually try to make changes and improvements.

I've revised this quiz to address user comments and to remove one clue that was nearly impossible for non-American users.

‘Pickaback’ should be allowed as well as ‘piggyback’ given it is the original as well as an alternative.

You should have capitalised 'Empire' so we can differentiate it from the regular vocabulary word.

Backspace is not alternative of delete key.

They are different and do different things.

Backspace deletes characters before the cursor while delete deletes those after the cursor.
