I just want to see your opinions. I mean, yeah, Lucas came up with the whole idea of making Star Wars and made the story, but he didn't do everything! He was originally going to make a movie based off the Flash Gordon comics, I believe, but he couldn't due to copyright issues. And the story, at least the OT story, is pretty simple. Damsel in distress, hero and friends go to huge space station (castle) of the Empire (evil kingdom) and rescue her. Good guys win, bad guys lose. There's more to it than that but the basic plot is the same. Lucas wasn't necessarily the one who put in all the work into making the effects look amazing. IMO more credit should go to Ralph McQuarrie. He was the guy who made Star Wars into what seemed to be a very real, industrial setting. Like it actually existed and people actually lived. I might be wrong about all the above, which is why I'm asking you all. But do you think too much credit goes to Lucas for Star Wars? He didn't even direct the OT!
