    Through rewatching the saga over and over I find it endlessly fun and fascinating to identify all the causes and effects in the saga.

    For example Han Solo ultimately failing to keep Leia safe in Empire is why Luke is lured into a trap on Bespin and finds out Vader is his father which then leads to him seeing the good in him and trying to redeem him in ROTJ. Thus the asteroid chase and Han evading the Empire in the Falcon only to be eventually caught because he exhausts all options and has to trust a shifty friend in Lando is why the saga unfolds the way it does. Also Boba Fett playing a role in tracking the Falcon to bespin. Boba Fett who became a bounty hunter and hated Jedi since his father was killed by one in the battle of geonosis.

    Another is Han getting involved in this saga at all. Obi Wan just needed someone to smuggle them off Tatooine to Alderaan and Han is taking this job because he owes Jabba. This one simple transport job ends up changing his life forever. The reason he ends up where he is at the end of force awakens is because he took this one job.

    Let us not forget the whole saga started because Qui Gon and Obi Wan were sent to settle a trade dispute and end up on a diversion to Tatooine that sets in motion the entire Skywalker story.

    In other words, Chaos Theory at its best.

    The Battle of Naboo. A seemingly small battle but the outcome would affect the entire Galaxy.

    The single biggest has to be the very existence of Sidious.

    Just by existing, and seeking to take over the galaxy, and being a Sith, dictates that the Jedi are helplessly blind to what is going on in the galaxy.

    By separating Obi-Wan from Qui-Gon and Maul, the laser gates on Naboo killed Anakin’s would-be Jedi Master and quite possibly altered his - and the galaxy’s - future a great deal.

    All because Maul kicked Obi-Wan in the head.

    Obi-Wan getting caught on Geonosis (and we don't even see how it's happening). That event lead to the beginning of the clone wars and without the clone war more jedi would have survived and they would not have become an easy prey for "Order 66". Who knows, without the clone wars Anakin might not even have gone dark.

    It all began with a trivial dispute over taxes.
