Added DiffLines:

* DubNameChange: The French and Italian dubs of the original trilogy changed many of the character, location and ship names. This became [[InconsistentDub more inconsistent later on]], even more so in French Canada where they got their own local dubs of material from ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' onwards.

* MedievalStasis: The franchise takes place over tens of thousands of years (e.g. ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' is set four thousand years before ''Episode I'') and yet there is little to no technological or cultural development in that time. [[note]]Aside from the Death Star, but we know how that turned out.[[/note]]

* PrettyBoy: Luke. Just ... look at him. Obi-Wan Kenobi in ''Episode I'' and Anakin Skywalker in ''Episode II'' as well.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Valorum in Episode I who sincerely wants to help the Naboo but is ensnared in "baseless accusations of corruption" [[spoiler: engineered by [[TheMole his presumed friend Palpatine]]]]. When the Jedi returning from Naboo with Naboo's Queen appear before Valorum and Palpatine they bow and Valorum returns a respectful nod. In contrast, Palpatine lifts his face up and puffs his chest out as the Jedi approach and bow.

* SpaceFighter: ''Star Wars IV'' was the TropeCodifier that influenced all subsequent designs to one extent or another. The basic designs of the most famous fighters are instantly recognizable to anyone with even a passing knowledge of pop culture.
* SpaceIsCold: According to Padmé in Episode I.

* UnlimitedWardrobe: Padmé has one. {{Lampshaded}} by Obi-Wan in Episode I, when he suggests they sell her extensive (and expensive) wardrobe to buy parts.
** Also lampshaded by Carrie Fisher in the commentary for Film/ReturnOfTheJedi:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: In ''Star Wars Episode II'', the one thing that [[TheScrappy Jar Jar]] actually does in the movie other than stand in the background is to make a motion in the Senate to grant Palpatine emergency powers. [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Good work there]].

* ContinuityNod: Nearly thirty years of Expanded Universe stories have left quite an impression on fans all over the world. Even with the recent story reboot by Disney, a number of places, people, ships and events have become official canon, though it would take too long to list them all here.

* AMasterMakesTheirOwnTools: Technology abounds everywhere, and yet the Jedi are asked to acquire all of the parts for and assemble their own [[LaserBlade lightsaber]] by hand from scavenged parts they find over their travels and are expected to have a personal connection with the crystal specifically. PlayedWith by the Sith. While they may customize some parts, they use mass produced synthetic crystals (which also gives them their uniform red color).

* IdiotBall: Throughout the series. Not so much Idiot Ball as Idiot ''Balls''. From the Stormtroopers who killed Luke's Aunt and Uncle but didn't, y'know, even bother to do a cursory search of their home to find the droids...which would have shown them there was a third person living there and ''maybe they should wait for him to return in order to acquire the droids and kill him too?'' Or how about the thirty rebel fighters who run into Darth Sidious...and despite the fact that they're pressed for time and have enough combined firepower to turn him into Jedi salsa, decide to let their two Jedi's handle it with a lengthy lightsaber battle that ends with one of their Jedi dead? A lightsaber that can cut through anything...being given to a farmboy who has no idea how to safely handle one? Walking armored tanks...that are easy to trip and utterly useless after they've fallen down? Building the most powerful weapon in the galaxy...that has a weakness that can be exploited by a skilled pilot flying an insignificant X-wing? The list could fill pages...

It is a tale of [[{{heroes}} good]] versus [[EvilOverlord evil]], [[FaceHeelTurn corruption]] and [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]], set on alien worlds and aboard [[CoolStarship starships]], in a universe of [[WaveMotionGun hi-tech super-weapons]] and [[LaserBlade lightsaber]][[SwordFight duels]], that [[SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome raised the bar for special effects]] [[{{Film}} in cinema]]. It is also a [[CashCowFranchise juggernaut of a franchise]] which made its creator Creator/GeorgeLucas one of the most powerful men in the film and entertainment industries. It kickstarted brands like THX, Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic, and Creator/{{Pixar}}, and, years later, allowed [[Creator/{{Disney}} the Walt Disney Company]] to become an even more influential media empire.

** GeorgeLucas [[AuthorAppeal loves]] Creator/AkiraKurosawa. There are ''many'' references to ''Film/TheHiddenFortress'' in ''Film/ANewHope'', including this one, which borders on LampshadeHanging:
