I just noticed something incidently accurate to StarWars as I was writing.
As I am writing I am picturing most aliens and places like they are in StarWars.
Example: My Story: We were seated by a four armed fat alien. StarWars: Obi-Wan had a four-armed fat butcher.
Another examples are when I think of the action in my story I see HanSolo blasting stormtroopers.
There is many more examples, such as Yunion City is a planet that is just one gigantic city or in StarWars Yunion would be Coruscant.

Anyone else having these types feelings? I know I am not copying G.L., but it is strange because it seems like the SW characters are just going a different direction in my story.

You've got a good visual imagination. It'll help.

Help? Maybe, or possibly put me ahead of my reader's knowledge in visualization.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Lucas himself borrowed heavily from others. Your Yunion City has allusions to Coruscant, which in turn was derived from Asimov's Trantor -- the imperial capital in Foundation. As for aliens, there are a lot of four-armed aliens running about SF, so you didn't get it from just Lucas.

The only originality left to a writer is to steal with good taste.
