Because I absolutely love how the story goes in my own little opinion and the way how it's done, but what's your reason for adoring it?

I have such sentimentality towards all of the Star Wars movies, as I watched them when I was little. The amount of origins for each character, the story/character development, the countless lessons learned from Yoda alone, much less any other pivotal character. Star Wars has high stakes, as well as concepts applicable in life. If I had to narrow it down, I would say that the whole battle between good and evil, and the equilibrium of the Force, is what keeps it timeless in my mind.

@insanitysmiles13: okay, but what was the 1st movie you ever saw when you were a kid?

@kazuma14

I'm not exactly sure which I saw first. I want to say A New Hope possibly.

My love for Star Wars never really reached a deep level until I played the first Knights of the Old Republic game. It was then that I realized the beauty, mystery, wonder, and adventure that was Star Wars. There's just nothing like it. I tell ya, George Lucas caught lightning in a bottle.

I grew up with the prequels so I'll have to say first and foremost Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan and Liam Neeson as Qui Gon Jinn. Say what you want about the prequels but those two characters were awesome. As a kid there were obviously a lot of inherently cool concepts such as lightsabers, Vader, the force. It was fun as hell to play with.

As an adult it's just refreshing to have morally complex heroes that still fit within the boy scout model. Luke, Obi Wan, Rey are all just inherently good people and they have to face some of the absolute worst situations imaginable without being corrupted. Recently it feels like everything has to be morally grey to be complex and relatable but Star Wars is giant sign proving that theory wrong. People can be good and heroic without being simple or boring. Marvel have also done a great job proving this with Captain America in the MCU but it took awhile for it to happen.
