The climactic scene in which the Death Star is assaulted was modeled after the 1950s movie The Dam Busters, in which RAF Lancaster bombers fly along heavily defended reservoirs and aim "bouncing bombs" at their manmade dams in a bid to cripple the heavy industry of the Ruhr.
Scenes from the Death Star assault are also reminiscent of the film Battle of Britain, particularly in showing the face of the pilot in the cockpit, and the radio dialogue between teams named after colours.
In general, the Star Wars movies have followed the convention, common in space opera, in which planets stand in for regions of the Earth, so that there would be a desert planet, a jungle planet, and so on.

The vehicle's designation "CAP-2" has not yet been interpreted officially, but considering this walker's advantages, its acronym might mean something like "compact assault platform." The vehicle's nickname "captivator" suggests that it may be intended to wade through the lines of enemy footsoldiers to capture vital assets or even to abduct important officers from the field.

Star Wars is a science fantasy saga and fictional universe created by writer/producer/director George Lucas during the 1970s.
Star Wars melds science with supernatural elements that strongly relate to epic stories and fairy tales (for example, Magic, Knights, Witches, Princesses and 'whimsical' alien races such as Ewoks and Wisties).
For his part, Lucas claimed in a segment filmed for the THX-remastered VHS release of the original trilogy that the original Star Wars story was intended as a single film but was later split into three because the story was too long to be told in a single film.

 GameSpy: Star Wars: The Clone Wars Review
Released late last year for the PS2 and GCN, Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been ported to the Xbox with the significant addition of Xbox Live support, and the same relentlessly mediocre shoot-'em-up action.
While the screenshots may project the illusion of action/strategy gameplay, be not fooled; The Clone Wars is a straight-up, third-person, vehicular shooter in which you take the controls of five different vehicles, including a hovertank, gunship, speeder bike, and scout walker.
The lowlight of The Clone Wars is the occasional sequence in which your Jedi-avatar is on foot, marred by character animation so unfortunate that I laughed out loud the first time I saw it in "motion." Yoda's CG fight sequence at the end of Episode II: Attack of the Clones is stunningly realistic by comparison.

The design of the Jedi attack cruiser is meant to bridge the look of the Acclamator-class vessels seen in Episode II and the Imperial-class Star Destroyers in Episode IV.
Though the term "Star Destroyer" is never used in the film to describe these starships, the use of the classic Star Destroyer bridge set to represent this vessel's interior leant the classic moniker to this new warship.
By the end of the film, the Star Destroyers lack color altogether, symbolizing the Empire's emergence over the Republic.
