Whilst watching the Star Wars movies recently for the first time1 - in order of release - I detected a decrease in the technology between the last of the "new" movies - Revenge of The Sith - and the first of the "old" movies - A New Hope.
I now have two questions:
- Is this apparent drop in technology real or perceived?
- If it's real, is it ever explained in-universe?2
1 Yes, it has taken me this long and I'm 28!
2 I know that out-of-universe it is because an improvement in the technology, CGI capabilities and imagination and so on between those movies (ANH was release in 1977 and RotS was released in 2005).
