So, does that mean you saw it too, Obis-Grl?
Or do you think I'm crazy?
Then, there was the animated short before MIIB, where Yoda and Darth Vader were arm wrestling.
In a book called Good Omens, Pepper is talking about how she would never talk about cosmic harmony if she was an alien, and said "This is my blaster, Rebel Scum, so do what you're told." in a Darth Vader voice. If anyone had to play the part of any stupid princesses with weird hairdoes, it wouldn't be Pepper.
The movie "Free Enterprise" is full of pop culture references, including STAR WARS.
For example, there's a scene when the character of Robert, as a child, is getting beat up by another kid. For a moment, in his mind, Robert talks to his imaginary friend and idol, William Shatner (played by Shatner himself).
Shatner tells Robert, "that Aryan youth is about to knock you into oblivion." But Robert says he has to fight the kid because of the terrible thing he said. Shatner asks what could be so terrible, and Robert says that the other kid said Han Solo was cooler than Captain Kirk.
Shatner replies, "Kick the little f****er's a**."
Funny movie, by the way.
Here's another one:
In another episode of "NewsRadio", Dave (Dave Foley) is stunned when Matthew (Andy Dick) comes up with this idea: STAR WARS is a metaphor for the Nixon Administration. The scene includes this exchange (approximate quotes):
DAVE: Okay, then if what you say is true, who's Nixon?
DAVE: Wait a minute! Yoda was a wise and good teach-
MATTHEW: No, Dave. Yoda was a Muppet. It was just a puppet. And the man behind Yoda, the puppeteer, is the one who ordered the secret bombings in Cambodia.
So, I guess that means Luke and Han are Woodward and Bernstein?
Then there was an Episode of Celebrity Deathmatch, when Mark Hamill was up to fight.
He was attacked by an alien and he asks "Whadda I do now."
Obi-Wans voice is heard. "Mark, trust your instincts."
Mark: "What use the Force?"
Obi-Wan: "No, Mark. RUN LIKE HELL."
This is probably too small to count, but I was just watching "Valley Girl" with Nick Cage and there's a scene where he's driving in Hollywood with the girl, right after they pass Mann's Chinese, you can see a theater on the right that has ESB on the marquee. It was kinda cool for me as I caught it just as I was falling asleep. -Sky
