What's really revealing is reading the Making of Star Wars book and how the early drafts of Star Wars were filled with all the political stuff that found its way into the prequels. And how Lucas' friends at the time -- such as Coppola and Spielberg -- helped him weed out all the junk and streamline the story. No one had that level of influence by the time he was writing the prequels.
Lots of funny Star Wars Haikus here:
good, noble tauntaun
innards like congealed ramen
takes one for the team
