William Shakespeare's Star Wars, or, Verily, A New Hope:
the end of Act I, Scene VII
(reenter Luke, gazing into the setting of Tattoine's two suns.)
Luke: Oh, I am fortune's fool. 'Tis true, 'tis true,
And gazing now upon the double sun
Of my home Tattoine, I know full well
That elsewhere lies my destiny, not here.
Although it is my uncle's will that I stay,
My heart within me bursts to think on it
For out among the spheres I wish to roam--
Adventure and rebellion stir my blood.
Those oft-repeated words of my mate Biggs
I do believe--that all the world's a star.
Beyond that heavn'ly light I shall fly far!

William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back
The end of Act 1, Scene 2 *after Han's and Leia's argument in the corridor*
Leia: --O man of bile!
Thou wouldst make e'en the coolest temper burn,
For thou art made of heat and flame and fire.
No wood may stand within a mile of thee
But it shall roast as if 'twere on the sun.
And now, thy scorching manner lights my fuse.
Aye truly, I confess I am aflame:
Thine eyes create combustion in my heart,
Thy face doth cause my cheeks to flood with warmth,
Thy fingers set me trembling at their touch,
Thy hands may hold the secrets of my soul.
Thou hast a pow'r o'er Leia's very self,
Yet wear my patience past what I can bear.
For O, how thou dost needle, jest and prick
When thou dost think thy pride is at the stake.
Be not so full of bile, my noble Han.
I prithee, choose the tender side of wit.
If thou couldst ever put thy pride away,
Belike my prejudice would fall aside.
Then could our two hearts sing a melody,
Instead of clashing in disharmony.
[Exit Princess Leia]

William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return
End of Act III, Scene IV
[Exeunt Luke Skywalker with stormtroopers guarding.
Vader: O what a rogue and peasant Sith am I,
This turmoil in my spirit doth not suit
A dark and vicious warlord like myself.
My son a rebel--fickle-minded fate
That e'er would be so cruel to have me see't!
And not a simple rebel, nay, but he
A hero, noble, brave, and true, a lad
Whose character befits his parentage.
Were he within the Empire's ranks employ'd,
I would be proud to govern by his side.
A worthy lad is he, of virtues full,
A Jedi Knight and pow'rful in the Force,
A brave, courageous, and cunning warrior,
A shadow of my former, noble self.
Yet if he will not turn he'll be destroy'd.
O shall it be? The strands of Fate do seem
To wind themselves around my neck as if
To strangle me and drag me down into
The measureless, uncharted depths of my
Beloved Emperor's most perfect will.
Thus shall I drown within the dark side's pull:
A murky grave to bury Vader's soul.
The rudder of my conscience runs not straight,
Thus am I tow'd along toward my fate.
