Obvious one; the whole movie is a Star Wars spoof.
When Rocky sees the pie-making machine for the first time, he exclaims "look at the size of that thing!"
Buzz makes reference to a weapon poised at the edge of the galaxy, with the destructive capacity to destroy an entire planet.
Toy Story 2
Emporer Zurg delivers the line "no, I am your father" Darth Vader style to Buzz.
Also several of the sound effects in the opening computer game sequence are lifted out of the Star Wars movies.

When Marty dresses up as an alien to convince George to ask Lorraine out, he says his name is Darth Vader.
Some gremlins are seen playing the Atari Star Wars arcade game in the bar scene.
Elliot shows ET his collection of Star Wars figures. Elsewhere in the film Michael imitates Yoda's voice.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Not an obvious one, but apparently Artoo and Threepio are depicted in some of the heirogliphics on the walls of the map room. (?)
That annoying little kid wanted to go into space because of the Star Wars movies.
That famous dialogue where Randal explains to Dante how he didn't like the fact that all the innocent contractors working on Death Star 2 were killed when Lando destroyed it.
