Sorry to say this, but the STAR has nothing to do with the Approach which is linked to the kind of instrument procedure for the specified runway. The STAR is a Standard (Terminal) Arrival Route, thus not necessarily linked to the approach procedure.
Not wanting to appear "nitpicking" but things should be commented correctly
