There are lots of ways to do space battles that owe nothing to ww2 movies and SW, but nobody is making really good space war movies. Instead you get retreads like WC that just reuse the SW look, which never was credible to start with, even if stylistically it worked for viewers. Even STARSHIP TROOPERS was very ww2 like. On tv DS9 did some good space battle stuff, but that was mostly after they switched from miniatures to cg unfortunately. Good script + proper approach to fx WILL result in a space battle picture that completely removes SW from your minds. just a matter of time.
