Just thinking, I wonder when English accents for the Empire became the norm? Was it casting Peter Cushing as Tarkin? Ben Kenobi played a Jedi, so that counts the other way. Most of the other Imperial accents in the first movie were American. Maybe it's because you can't say "m'lord" as an American and have it sound right.

"Peter Cushing as Tarkin? "

OMG I forgot all about that haha. As far as I'm aware I only heard 1 scottish accent (maybe 2) and that was a doc on Kaas i think.

For the record, Palpatine's scottish too just sounds evil-er

What's mind boggling is how accents change because of the government that controls them. Accents should be based on planets, not ruling governments.

As an American, after hanging around with enough Englishmen (and Englishwomen), I've realized that the English spoken by The Queen's Subjects isn't quite the same English in the Land of the Free.

There's more english-speaking countries than just Britain and America.

Australia, Britain, and the U.S. are countries where English is the de facto language, then there are around 56 Sovereign countries where English is an official language. Like EVERY language, English has its own dialects, which are variations on the same language, such as the difference between British English and American English.

I'll never forget the offended look a Brit gave me when I said something about getting smacked in the fanny.
