You can tell that these were a product of the late 70s and early 80s. I lost count of how many times Leia needed to be rescued. True, she was more active than your average damsel in distress, but still got really annoying, especially when she did things that were out of character. The later stories are better. But the women are largely interchangeable and it is mostly Luke and Han centric.
BTW, Luke, before you found out that Leia was your sister and you still liked her, you might have had better luck if you weren't as patronizing as f**k. Just saying
