Star Wars

Culture serie

A saga about heroes, lightsabers, dualism and spaceships, created by George Lucas in 1977.

The first video game about Star Wars was released in 1979.

LucasArts, Domark and Parker Brothers has published most of these games

The Jedi signature lightsaber was originally a ceremonial weapon around 26 thousand years ago, it turned into an energy weapon around 15 thousand years ago (vibroblades were used prior), and finally reached its miniaturized form about 7 thousand years ago (before this they were wired to a separate power pack on the wielder's waist and had some other more pertinent issues besides the wires). No game is set in such ancient times yet, though some comics and books are.
Implied:
* Alternate universe
* Aliens
* Robots - droids
* Laser bolts

Common:
* Psychic powers - The Force, no better alternative exists currently to categorize it (magic is close second, but psionics fits it better).

Historical periods:
* Skywalker epoch
* Old Republic
* Draggulch Period (New Sith Wars)
Critics might say that George Lucas mixed Flash Gordon and Akira Kurosawa, together with some science fiction novels, comic books, The Wizard of Oz, and sewed it all up with Joseph Campbell's ideas on the structure of myth...
