Lightsabers, Jedi, and The Force don't have as big a role in Star Wars (1977) as they do in later films. The climax of the film is a space battle, not a lightsaber duel, and in the opening scene Vader doesn't use The Force to choke the captain.
The force doesn't have a big role in Star Wars?
The Force has a big role in Star Wars, but it has an even bigger role in Empire and Jedi and an even bigger role than that in the prequels.
