Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath / FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: Although generally considered a family movie, with a large fanbase of kids, the film includes several unexpectedly gory moments that remain unique in the original trilogy: the smoldering skeletons of Owen and Beru that Luke sees when he returns home; and the close-up of a bloody dismembered arm of the thug who finds himself on the wrong end of Obi-Wan's lightsaber (owing to the editing of the scene, coupled with the appearance - possibly due to SpecialEffectsFailure - of the arm being hollow, and the fact we hear no more about the man Obi-Wan attacks, the impression is given that the man is actually vaporized by the lightsaber).

* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: Han charges headlong at the Stormtroopers as a diversionary tactic; he turns and runs after he ends up cornering them and forcing them to stand and fight (the special edition changes this to them running into a hangar full of troopers)

** Later when Han and Chewie were being chased by Stormtroppers, one of them called on the comlink to close the blastdoors to cut off their escape. When Han and Chewie manage to get through before it shuts, the Stromtroppers are unable to pursue, with the one who ordered the doors shut shouting "Open the blastdoors! Open the blastdoors!"

* MistakenForDying: A brief played for laughs scene. After R2 and 3PO manage to shut down the garbage compactor in time, Luke and the others begin screaming in relief, which 3PO mistakes for dying screams and believes he wasn't fast enough to save them, until Luke calls out they're okay.

* {{Hypocrite}}: After learning that Dantooine isn't the location of the current rebel base, Tarkin has the nerve to get upset that Leia lied ''to him'', [[YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo just after he had went back on his word to her and blew up her home planet]]

Said troubled production left Lucas exhausted after the film was finished, and he didn't direct another film for over 20 years; primarily serving as the Executive Producer for ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. He would finally return to directing for ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. He would also direct ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' and ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''.

* ChekhovsGun: Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber is an aversion for this film's plot, but is played straight in the trilogy as a whole. Obi-Wan gives it to Luke, and provides him some training in its use, but Luke never actually uses it until [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack the next film]]. [[spoiler: Not to mention the role it plays in the Sequel Trilogy.]]

* RightManInTheWrongPlace: Luke is not initially meant to be the one who destroys the Death Star, but as the battle goes on, every one of the Rebels' pilots is killed or disarmed, leaving first-time soldier Luke to save the day. Thankfully, Luke is attuned to the Force, which lets him make the one in a million shot at the Death Star's weak point.

* NoScope: Luke fired the shots that destroyed the Death Star without using his targeting computer (the X-wing's equivalent of a scope).
