This is something I'm really concerned about for the next prequel film. Since the clone wars will obviously tremendously affect the galaxy, what sort of event would it take for the style of the galaxy to change into what we see in A New Hope? Will it be because of the destruction? Will it be because of the Empire's choice of "style?" I'm sure Lucasfilm's art department can do this, it's just a matter of if they will or not. Any thoughts?
