Something many people fail to realize is that Star Wars is not Science Fiction. It is more properly classified as Science Fantasy. The distinction that I'm trying to make in this case is that while technology can be seen to evolve (and sometimes quite rapidly) in Science Fiction stories, in Science Fantasy technology only advances when it serves the plot.

See Examples: Any Super-weapon. Weapon Advancements during the Yuuzhan Vong War (see: New Jedi Order book series). The development of the lightsaber (a retroactively told anecdote to show the age of the Jedi Order).

There are more examples I could probably name, but these get the point across.
