* AnyoneCanDie: If the franchise wants you dead, no matter who you are, you die. This is especially prevalent with a character from a previous trilogy.

The main saga is split into series of movies set in their own eras, all following a MythArc about the Jedi, the Dark Side, and the battle to restore peace to the Galaxy. Three of these sets of films are trilogies, while a series of spin-off films serve as side-stories unrelated to the overall story of the Skywalker bloodline.

** For the trilogies, green sabers also seem specifically to be for Jedi ''teachers'' while blue ones are for Jedi ''students''. While Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Luke all use blue sabers while training, Qui-Gon has a green one while training Obi-Wan and Luke later gets a green one in ''Return of the Jedi'' when his training is complete and he's ready to face Vader. Anakin getting a green saber while Obi-Wan gets a blue one near the end of ''Attack of the Clones'' therefore seems to provide a {{Foreshadowing}} of the bad things to come from Anakin's arrogant belief that he's surpassed his teacher.

* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: The main films (both the original trilogy and the prequels) are all extremely silly, though in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'' it has been toned down a bit. Expanded universe works, however, usually have a much more serious tone.

* GenerationalSaga: The ''Star Wars'' movie saga is the story of the rise of a man from absolute poverty to absolute power and his downfall, intersected with the rise of his son from that of a simple farmer to galactic hero.

* AccidentalInnuendo
** "You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought!"
** "Luke, at that speed do you think you'll be able to pull out in time?"
** "They came from behind!"
** "Pull out! You're not doing any good back there!"
** "(pant) I can't... (pant) it's too big..."
** "In time you will learn to call me 'master'."
** "Look at the ''size'' of that thing!"
** "Judge me by my size, do you?" For Episode II, they even made a poster with Yoda on it that says "Size matters not", although that might have even been an intentional innuendo.
** "Get in there, you big furry oaf! I don't care what you smell!"
** "I have felt him."
*** Strange that I have not."
** "Back door, huh? Good idea."
** "Hurry up, Golden Rod, or you're going to be a permanent resident!"
** "Myself, the boy, two droids, and NoQuestionsAsked."
** "It's possible he came in through the south entrance." [[DoubleEntendre You could do this all day.]]
** "Well, my little friend, you've got something jammed in here real good."
** "Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash."
** "[[CompletelyMissingThePoint Since you are reluctant to provide us with the location of the Rebel base, I have chosen to test this station's destructive power... on your home planet of Alderaan.]]"
** [[Film/AttackOfTheClones My goodness, you've grown!]]
*** "So have you", says Anakin, his eyes fixed squarely on Padme's chest.
** And on a more [[MemeticMutation memetic]] note, there is [[AssShove "He is in my behind!"]] from the TranslationTrainWreck, JustForFun/BackstrokeOfTheWest.
** Its [[FanSequel Fan Sequels]], WebOriginal/TheStarWarGatherings, are no better.

* AttackPatternAlpha: The space battles are full of this, especially the Rebels.

to:

* AttackPatternAlpha: AttackPatternAlpha:
** In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', during the snowspeeder battle on Hoth, Luke orders "Attack Pattern Delta" -- which appears to be flying in a single file line. Although if you keep watching, you'll notice that the four snowspeeders line up in a straight line, curve to the right as a group, and then split into pairs to take out two walkers. Presumably the split is where they get the name "delta".
**
The space battles are full of this, especially Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse portrays "Attack Pattern Delta" in this context as referring to advancing in single file and then peeling off at the Rebels.last minute, to present a smaller target to the AT-AT's relatively clumsy weapons. See [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Attack_Pattern_Delta the article on Wookieepedia]]. The [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] has [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Tactics quite a collection of these]].
** One of the ''Star Wars'' arcade games treats Attack Pattern Delta as an offensive action, where three snowspeeders concentrate their fire on a single point in an enemy's armor.
** Repeatedly parodied, usually taking the form of [[HollywoodTactics "Attack Pattern Delta consists of flying straight at the enemy in the only direction they can actually shoot back"]].

For the foreseeable future any EU material created is handled by a new Story Team that will ensure ''everything'' made in conjunction with and after these movies will be iron-clad capital-C Canon, disregarding the older system entirely and creating a new official Star Wars Expanded Universe. Characters, stories and other ideas from ''Legends'' may, and in some cases have been, reintegrated into the new canon, but [[BroadStrokes only partially and selectively]].
