 Alleged inconsistencies in Star Wars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some of the questions and inconsistencies may be answered by works within the Expanded Universe, while others will have to be accepted as part of the suspension of disbelief.
Almost all inconsistencies can be explained as an oversight by Lucas or an intended change in Lucas' idea of how the Star Wars universe works, while others can be explained by forgetfulness or deliberate deceit by the characters involved, but other, often speculative justifications are also given here.
In the prequel trilogy, the Death Star is shown in the stages of planning and early construction, while predecessors to the Imperial Star Destroyer, X-wing starfighter, Millennium Falcon, and TIE fighter are shown.

 Expanded Universe - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003-2004) aired on the Cartoon Network and depicted events between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron was a cross-platform title on Nintendo 64 and PC which allowed the player to experience a more arcade-action version of the same gameplay in "X-Wing" and "TIE Fighter".
For example, the two Star Wars spin-off films: Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor were written by George Lucas and are films, but they are not one of the six main films in the series, so they are usually considered to be a part of the Expanded Universe.

Star Wars Galaxies: Trials of Obi-Wan was released through digital download on November 1st 2005, to coincide with the release of the Revenge of the Sith DVD.
Even with the Jedi revamp in place, many in the Star Wars Galaxies community have expressed feelings that eventually the game will become an "Army of Generals" where the number of Jedi playing in the game will be extremely high, thus making the game less interesting for those playing non-Jedi characters.

References to the main characters and themes of Star Wars are casually made in Western society with the well-qualified assumption that others will understand the reference, without the speaker feeling the need to explain the reference, similar to the use of unelaborated references to the Bible and Greek mythology.

 Ape Culture - The Real Science of Star Wars
The first thing you notice about spacecraft in the Star Wars universe is that the small ones seem to behave just like terrestrial aircraft and the big ones move like terrestrial naval vessels.
Oddly, though, in the Star Wars movies we frequently see ships moving through space with their engines glowing brightly and therefore presumably generating lots of thrust – yet the craft don’t appear to be accelerating.
So, we should not be hearing spaceships go “whoosh” as they fly past the camera, we should not be hearing laser guns go “zap” as they shoot at those spacecraft, and we should not hear the explosions go “boom” when the laser guns find their targets.

However this is nothing new to the Star Wars universe as every film in the saga has these same faults, and as science fiction serials they never bothered me before either.
What is proved beyond question by “Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith,” the latest—and, you will be shattered to hear, the last—installment of his sci-fi bonanza, is that Lucas, though his eye may be greedy for sensation, has an ear of purest cloth.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and his star pupil, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), are, with the other Jedi knights, defending the Republic against the encroachments of the Sith and their allies—millions of dumb droids, led by Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and his henchman, General Grievous, who is best described as a slaying mantis.

 Metaphilm - Star Wars
It is only the grandeur and majesty of a fictional universe the size and complexity of one like the Star Wars universe, the Star Trek universe, the DC Comics universe, or the Marvel Comics universe (and perhaps soap operas) that is truly difficult to maintain.
Star Trek, on the other hand, has introduced a timestream-altering “Temporal Cold War” that might well be used someday to explain away any continuity errors: just say the time travelers did it.
Star Wars may be the most effective science-fictional theory yet posited, but even the best theory sometimes turns out to have cracks that necessitate its abandonment, its obsolescence.

 BioWare - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - George Lucas(q for devs)
George lucas looks after a pretty big empire (no pun intended) in Star Wars and wouldn't be able to without a lot of talented, able assistants and co-workers.
On the Episode I DVD there is a short documentary on the Star Wars: Starfighter game, in which it is said that Lucas likes to see what Lucasarts is up to.
My guess is that he has to give the 'approval' for any game based on Star Wars and Indiana Jones (when it comes to what can and what can't be done story wise).

Star Wars begins with a short prologue that, with a few "special modifications" in the text, is really the outline for the current Prequel Trilogy.
Most of the "deleted scenes" later appeared in Brian Daley's Star Wars: The Radio Drama), and the encounter between Han Solo and Jabba the Hutt (spelled Hut in this novel) was restored and tweaked with CGI in the 1997 Special Edition re-release.
Star Wars was certainly one of the most interesting and culturally exciting events of the last 1/3 of the 20th century as far as Pop Sci Fi was concerned and deserves to be mentioned.

 Matthew Yglesias: Star Wars Apologism
But as the current set of five films have things, while Anakin was a young men the Jedi are (a) recognizable by random winged-creatures on Tatooine, (b) commanding the Republic's armies during the Clone Wars, and (c) fighting the occassional pitched battle on the streets of Coruscant.
I think the scene was completely believable within the established context of the Star Wars universe.
Incidentally, those of you trying to argue special reletivity are forgetting that in Star Wars they go into Hyper Space, or rather, that they aren't accelerating to light speed but are instead finding some way around it, like Star Trek and Warp Speed.

Among them are rather insignificant errors during the shooting such as missing rank pips that reappear in the following scene only a few seconds later.
A number of more general mistakes, however, require and deserve further consideration.
