I understand that Star Wars, like many outer-space sci-fi's includes a variety of planets and moons to set much of the space action around:
- Space battle around Endor
- Space battle arround Yavin and Yavin IV
- Attack on Coruscant
Obviously Star Wars was focused around a number of wars i.e. Trade War, Clone War, Rebellion so why is it that the saga was not named Space Wars (obviously this was trademarked), Planet and Moon Wars, Galactic Wars or something similar? Why would the 'Star' in Star Wars be significant? I do not recall any specific star being a location for any trilogy or prequel setting, instead star systems were more important, specifically planets and their moons. Was it the cash-in effect from 'Star' Trek?
Maybe i'm just missing a reference or quote from some canon or Lucas material which describes the title.
