You mention of spending a force point just brought me back to my F2F group. We were playing SWSE back on '07 or '08 and the groups Noble performed surgery on another character that was close to death. Failed and the damage killed the character, then failed the revive check. The patient burns a force point to stay alive. Noble fails again. player burns his last point to stay alive. Noble eventually succeeded and brought him back, but it would have been the first time a character died on the operating table if he had failed again though.
