* R2-D2 is a little badass who deserves more love. How many times has has saved the heroes' bacon by calmly fiddling with some [[PlayfulHacker computer]] [[EverythingIsOnline components]], usually while a massive firefight is raging around him? Two examples come to mind to start with: Shutting down the compacter in ''ANewHope'', and fixing the hyperdrive on the ''Falcon'' in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
** In his very first appearance during Phantom Menace, had he not saved the protagonists, the whole series would've ended right there.

''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and helping Anakin and Obi-Wan on General Grievous' flagship while dealing with [[MechaMook two B2 super battle droids]] ''on his own''.

** The hissing, buzzing hum the blades make as they swing or even stand ready, and the loud cracklings when they strike each other. ''Star Wars'' just wouldn't be complete without them. In a sort of meta CMOA, the sounds were created by Ben Burtt ''breaking all the rules'' for film sound, which state that buzz and hum are ''bad'' things, but he'd found a microphone of his with a damaged wire made a ''really cool'' buzz and hum when it was near other electronics, and thought that sound was good enough it had to be useful somewhere. It gave voice to the lightsaber, and made the weapons really stand out as something unique.

* The StarWars franchise is a prime example of BigBadassBattleSequence in any work pretending to the title of TheEpic. Every movie manages to give the audience an idea of the sheer scale of what's happening in the galaxy by mixing all kinds of battles in every movie, going from [[SwordFight Lightsaber Fights between the main characters]], to shooutouts between squads of soldiers, to battles between entire armies, and finally the SpaceBattle between two fleets. A reminder that all the main characters are part of an universe really bigger than any of them, but also that even within the immensity of the war around them, these same characters will decide the fate of a whole galaxy.

* Why of course, the most iconic part of the franchise: The lightsaber. It's a sword... but it's also a laser!
