    Well, personally I would consider SW a "good vs. evil." Yeah, it's complex, but so what? Since when are "good vs. evil" stories too simplistic. LOTR is "good vs. evil" but definitely not simplistic. Anyways, my point is that you can have a complex story that is still "good vs. evil"-themed. I think SW is one of those.

    The Empire is pure Evil...The Republic only became corrupt when the people and govt became complacent and content with the way things worked... The Jedi did keep the peace by fixing border disputes and the such...

    And the Jedi are never corrupted, their vision is clouded by the Sith

    The Jedi seem to live by what Padme said in the AOTC novel...The ideals are strong, Count, even if the institution is failing! (paraphrased) this doesnt make the Jedi corrupt since they still keep with their goal of protecting the Republic


    And the corruption card was played a lot by Palpatine in TPM, it worked to his advantage

    i still think it is about power. yes there are several archetypal themes running thru out the series. but when you look at these themes they come down to use of power. take mechanical vs. nature. nature wins out without the use of power while mechanical is all about the use of power.
