Star Wars[edit]

Star Wars is an incredible force in today's culture and many readers may be interested in learning more about it, especially with all the media hype

  • Please, do not nominate articles that do not meet basic FA requirements like references and a lead section. Now about the content of the article itself: there is still a lot of work to do on it before it can do its subject any justice. The structure is not coherent (we have a "Films" section *before* the "Overview" section —a section which contains a bit too much trivia to be a real overview—, and a few sections later, another section called "Movies", many insignificant non-sections like "Setting" or "Toys"). The prose could use rewriting in some parts, and a lot of factr-checking (the entire "Themes" section is full of unreferenced speculation). Currently, this article is good as a collection of links —albeit an unorganized one, but it does not provide a readable and comprehensive overview of the topics related to Star Wars while presenting the SW articles Wikipedia has to offer, like it should do.

  • Article existance and relevance to real word is not a criteria for it becaming FA. Register, learn how the wiki works, IMPROVE the article, then renominate. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 10:11, 16 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Object - no references. Will look at this later. - Ta bu shi da yu 01:46, 20 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Further: there are major structural problems here. I suggest that the story overview a plot synopsis of all 6 of the episodes and that the overview and the film series be merged into one section (or better yet, remove the arbitrary sections "Overview" and "The Film Series". I have issues with seeing a list of major and minor characters in the format given at the start - a brief summary of the ones listed should be given but that section should not be before the story. The setting subsection and story should be merged. Major themes and influences, IMO, should be before the Expanded Universe, though there may be good reasons for the layout here. - Ta bu shi da yu 01:55, 20 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
