I'm GMing Star Wars, and one of my players just sits back and goes with the flow. He rarely takes the initiative and when he describes his actions he's usually just describing the mechanics rather than actions in the scene:"I roll this skill or that ability".
I believe that I have failed to engage him, even though I throw a lot at him that his character is good at doing on paper.
So how do I motivate him? How can I engage his attention? He claims to enjoy the game, but I don't see it at all.
Whilst playing D&D previously, my player was very enthusiastic, and appeared to love every minute of it. Then he took over as GM and he loves doing that more than playing. (I believe I may have answered my own question with this: Setting and Role. It could just be that he wants to GM D&D and that's it.)
