Star Wars is a space opera, not a science fiction. It helps to make sense of how SOME things work, but really, the movies are about space wizards in a feudal galactic society.

You can't compare tech in a space opera to that in a science fiction... science fiction generally tries to make scientific sense with their universe, whereas space operas put the story first, and iron out the details later.
