Star Wars has had Wagner baked in from the very beginning. Things like Siegmund in the Ring Cycle claiming the sword left to him by his divine father Odin, and then immediately sleeping with his sister. 😉

Heck, even the spelling of Leia’s name comes from the cries of the Rhinemaidens in Goetterdaemmerung.
