Star Wars is much less Sci-Fi, and much more Fantasy. Most Sci-Fi will at least attempt to have some scientific plausibility. Star Wars didn't go for that. It's all magic and such... just set in space.

Star wars is not scifi, it's fantasy in a scifi'esk setting.

Second, it's sci-fi, so light-emitting swords = OK. In fact, I find it interesting that you seem to have no problem with Force powers, but get tripped up over lightsabers.


Lifting star ships with invisible space mojo is totally reasonable, sir!


What I want to know is how Yoda, who happens to be a goblin, wound up siding with the Rebel Alliance?

This post is racist and a mockery to actual physics. I demand it be deleted.

I can see if the energy has enough heat to melt objects as in the phantom menace when the jedi sticks his saber into the door and beings to melt it. Ok, heat is causing that. Light can generate heat. Makes perfect sense.

However, if a lightsaber hit another lightsaber without some "rod" in the middle they'd just pass through one another.

There's some wonkywoo physics going on here..
bad physics in science fiction?! Omg!

Lightsabers are a beam of plasma kept in place by a magnetic field, when it hits another lightsaber, the magnetic fields push away from each other, when it hits an object the object goes through the magnetic field and is burned by the plasma.

I think using a space ship to shoot a goat is a bit over the top.
