But they even listen to the same damn music and wear clothes and armor that look virtually identical to what people were wearing thousands of years later. Again, I understand why they did that. You want it to feel like Star Wars. But if you want to get all nerdragey, that's a place where there is a bit of a lapse in logic.
My theory is that the presence of the Force in the galaxy actually stifled technological (and cultural) evolution. Since it is so pervasive (it is all around us, lives within us), the "will" of the force influenced (infected) the consciousness of the galaxy's inhabitants.
