Keep in mind that POV characters are almost uniformly flying: A) Republic or Imperial Naval vessels with galactic R&D resources at their disposal and the ability to ignore "speed limits" and other travel restrictions. B) Rebel or smuggler ships which by definition do not obey restrictions or technological governing devices limiting their capabilities. C) Jedi vessels whose pilots can use the Force to find faster routes and who enjoy pretty much every exemption there is. Civilian travel is a whole different experience. We rarely see "how the other half flies," but the Lando Calrissian trilogy is notable for showing the kind of hoops civilians have to jump through at the mercies of customs agents and space traffic cops, and it's made particularly clear in Before the Storm, where civilian ships take four days just to get out of Coruscant's orbit, but all the main character ships have military waivers that let them hotdog it around at will.
