Actually, I find it cliche and boring. Also, I think it undermines the storyline. It takes a great deal to convince me that politicians are unrealistically corrupt and unbelievably stupid but Star Wars has repeatedly passed that line. Really, should politics be THAT much of a issue in Star Wars? Frankly, I wish we could move someplace away from the Hellish Core Worlds and focus perhaps on some Wild West style adventuring in the Outer rim.
