''Franchise/StarWars'' is inarguably the most famous modern example of space opera. (Indeed, ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' may have shifted "space opera" from insult to a more neutral genre descriptor, due to the involvement of veteran sf writer Creator/LeighBrackett.) In ''Star Wars'', technology is either [[MagicFromTechnology magic]] (the Force) or jazzier versions of today's gadgets ([[FrickinLaserBeams blaster rifles]], hovercars, space ships). Any ''Star Wars'' character ([[TheEmperor evil emperor]], {{farmboy}}, [[SaveThePrincess princess]]) would feel at home in a thick fantasy novel, in part because editor-publisher Lester del Rey derived the "epic fantasy" template partly from ''Star Wars'' and partly from ''The Lord of the Rings'', though also because these works borrow from the same source of Jungian imagery.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}''

to:

* ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}''''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' ticks most of the boxes. The plot involves the crew of a single ship trying to liberate their home planet from a galaxy-conquering tyrant, and getting embroiled in a war between two interstellar superpowers in the process. The main hero is the dashing captain of the aforementioned starship. There’s action, romance, [[HumongousMecha robots]], LostTechnology from a bygone era, SpacePirates, and plenty of space battles. The only thing missing is [[AbsentAliens the presence of intelligent aliens]].
