You have to remember the Star Wars franchise started in the seventies, for the seventies the film was very futuristic, and subsequent films couldn't displace the look too much, which set the Star Wars look. Books and comics fitted in with the look, and while the look changed it did so in minor ways, because you didn't want really advanced weapons 5000 years before the weapons in the films.

This is why we have chunky blasters, and no shields on every character. The speeders are relatively slow because it's a game, bioware don't want people zooming about at 300 MPH and then complaining that the planets are too small, or they missed something.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.
