    It was black then

    and it had some nice red, blue, yellow and green wires too

    Luke choose to wear the colour Black when he visited Jabba the Hut, to make him look like a jedi

    Althoug h it was the style of his clothes that made him look like a Jedi, not the colour of the clothes. Some may say his choice of colour was to reflect his acceptance of the "dark side" in him.

    Some may also say they were the cheapest clothes he could get at the time, after blowing all his cash on sabacc and booze.

    In Episode II, Yoda says that the Dark side clouds everything. Bugger.

    Han Solo got the Millennium Falcon by wining a game of Sabacc against Lando Calrissan

    At this stage we are unsure if Yoda was involved in this game

    Playing Yoda in any game of chance would not be a wise move.

    "Crap cards in your hand you have I would say hmmmm??"

    En route to Alderaan, Chewbacca, Artoo, and Threepio play dejarik, one of the oldest and most popular games in the galaxy.

    Artoo is perhaps slightly more skilled than Chewie at the game.

    but nobody cares if a droid loses!! (apparently due to the fact that they don't pull peoples arms from their sockets if they do!!)

    Luke cares. (not about the losing thing, but about what leia said in the cockpit of the falcon in ANH.

    Luke is the son of the chosen one.

    And a personal theory of mine, he's the grandson of Palpatine.

    Palpy was quite a looker before he got all old and crusty and consumed with the power of the dark side. He likes shooting lightning bolts out of his fingertips to barbeque Luke.

    Nothing better than a good fried Luke,

    You don't want the food standards commission onto you.

    Dexter Jettster has a nice diner on Coruscant, but it's quite possible he has the food standards commission on him often...

    Both he and Watto now sport a nice array of facial hair.

    Bail Organa also sports some nice facial hair. But Leia Organa doesn't, possibly because of her sex.

    Tis a shadow.

    Beru gave Luke blue milk. Luke saw three dead blue guys on Endor. Coincidence? Probably.

    While not necessarily a fact, it was the first radio ad for SW in 1977 :D And it ties in with the previous post by also saying 'scared'.

    Back then, Star Wars was Star Wars, no Episode 4, and thusly there was no Episode 1 and everyone was happy.
