theoretically technology should reach a peak and at that point just cycle not really be improved.

IE: Side a is losing so makes droids immune to blasters.
side b counters with ion weapons.
side a loses war.
side b no dominating organics switches back to blasters.
for 300 years no big threat comes that cant be handled with blasters.


And the amount of Tech that is straight up lost in Star Wars is just crazy.

How can a world covered in water grow enough clones to patrol the galaxy.

How can 1 million clone troopers defend a planet much less a galaxy.

Why does the xwing look like a box while its predacessor the arc170 look sexy as hell.

eventually you have learned so much and made so many strides that eventually technological advancements are more focused on efficiency, sustainability and sources of power. I think that the possible inventions that could or couldn't happen in SW are because people are more or less satisfied with their current technology and they don't really need anything new.

Most make the excellent point of pointing out that this is a fantasy world. But seperatly technology does not spread evenly. The vastness of the galaxy would lead to the rise and fall of countless civilizations and technology only to be lost in war etc. Even with hyperdrives the "outerrim" would gain access to tech much slower than the core worlds. And if someone were to come out with a new technology it might take a very long time for it to spread. Think about the billions of locations that are in the galaxy.

Technology was at its peak during the Great Galactic War, it has regressed since, and is only now reached its pinnacle again during the Clone Wars.

I mean come on it's not like we rode around on the same dinky horses, shooting the same bows and arrows, stabbing each other with the same swords, playing basically the same style musics, wearing the same style clothing, sailing the same crappy wooden boats, reading by fking candles or oil lamps and living in the same types of houses and castles for thousands of years with no really technological advancement just minor improvements or refinements to existing tech

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

we did most of that for over 1000 years.

in histroy we reach times when tech hit the wall and all you can do is refine and simplify if. since teh wheel been invented ages ago we still using it as a primay method to have thins move, trains,cars,trucks. when we get workable hover tech i'm sure we switch to it. but till we come across a newer idea or a bridge techology to get to that spot we stuck.

we used arrows for 100s of years and only later middle ages we start to get cannons. now we got tiny ones(guns) next step is a better powder, ingistion system(electric vs machinical) and new projectiles. then we reach a stalling point till a laser tech get to a useable lvls for personal use.

heck for clothing we still weave clothing, is that going to change? idk, seme unlickly but if nano tech improved could have a shirt created that fit perfectly and assemled at a mono scale so can have hole for air flow but not be weaved. this again waiting for a improvement of tech.
