Star Wars was a revolutionary science-fiction film that changed the perception of robots in the minds of many from in-human technical apparatus to real characters, with a sense of humor and feelings.

Probably one of the most significant influences from Star Wars on the notion of the robot is the widespread use of robots, even beyond C3PO and R2D2, as well as the treatment of the droids as nearly human, despite clearly being machines.

 Amazon.com: When in the Course of Human Events: Arguing the Case for Southern Secession: Books   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
When In The Course of Human Events: Arguing the Case for Southern Secession by Charles Adams is a clever and well written work that argues the case for secession of the Southern states.
His main point, for me, was that the Civil War was not about a smokescreen noble cause such as the abolition of slavery, though that was a noble cause, but about greed and power on both sides.
Like all wars, Adams makes the point that there is almost always a better way to resolve issues, other than war, and that the reason for the Civil War, and most wars, has more to do with economics, greed, and power.

 Salon Movies | "Star Wars" despots vs. "Star Trek" populists   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
In "Star Trek," when authorities are defied, it is in order to overcome their mistakes or expose particular villains, not to portray all institutions as inherently hopeless.
Above all, "Star Trek" generally depicts heroes who are only about 10 times as brilliant, noble and heroic as a normal person, prevailing through cooperation and wit, rather than because of some inherited godlike transcendent greatness.
The biggest moral flaw in the "Star Wars" universe is one point that Lucas stresses over and over again, through the voice of his all-wise guru character, Yoda.

The success was given, as Lucas and other filmmakers released the sequel Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back three years later, as the adventures of the Luke Skywalker came to a conclusion in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983).
In Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith the audience is thrown into the film, and if the audience lacks the information from the two previous film from 1999 and 2002 it might be a little hard to follow.

1231">Star Wars" had placed me in the presence of really magical movie invention: Here, all mixed together, were whimsy and fantasy, simple wonderment and quietly sophisticated storytelling.
1231">Star Wars" demonstrates, and the movie's delight in the possibilities of alien life forms is at least as much fun as its conflicts between the space cruisers of the Empire and the Rebels.
And perhaps that helps to explain the movie's one weakness, which is that the final assault on the Death Star is allowed to go on too long.
