    Do you think that the prequels clearly showed an industrialisation of a galaxy that would lead to the look of the OT?

    I think it's more like the PT showed the artistic design and tastes of the pre-Empire galaxy, shifting towards that harshly millitary look as we get closer to the OT.

    The only reason why things look the way they do in the OT is because War slows and most times completely cuts off progress in arts (music, architecture, and art). The vehicles look all old and used because they're all made from scrap metal because they need to be mass produced. Whereas the ships in the PT were almost custom made, using the nicest metals and paints.

    In AotC, I thought the Republic army looked too old - esepcially the Military Cruisers.

    Well, they're a step toward the Star Destroyers, so they're definitely part of the harsh-looking new technology of war.

    As oppposed to, say, something like the Queen's J-Type Nubian ship in TPM.

    I expected them to look kinda like the Nubian since they were brand new. The war has only just started...

    Yeah, but how long did they have to build that ship? And how many did they have to make in that time?

    Nubians are made one at a time, and are customized and hand crafted. Republic military cruisers are not. ;)

    The Nubian is just beautiful. It's like the difference between something that's been crafted (Nubian) and constructed (say, an X-Wing).

    As in most wars fancy elegant designs are replaced by more blocky, armor laden ones. The Star destroyers in empire strikes back for example.

    Remember that X-wings are bassically modified stunt fighters...Compared to the smooth lines of a naboo fighter

    So compare a 56 or 57 buick(the naboo fighter)... to a mid 80's stunt car(xwing)

    Tough to imagine just how epIII will bridge the two though....hmmm meditate on this i will.

    Lucas did say that the Clones Wars would leave the Galaxy in a state of "nuclear winter", which is one of the reasons everything is so old and run down.

    Warships aren't supposed to look nice either, they're supposed to kill, having ships look nice is the last thing on either sides mind

    Like the Tiger Tank of WW2, it looked like a blocky peice of crap, but it was the best tank of the war (excluding the short lived King Tiger of course)

    Just like the sword fights we see in movies are very unrealistic, they are made to look great as they do nicely, but in reality they would be far shorter as they would go for the quick kill rather then the dramatic one.

    Looks aren't the important thing in a war
