Episode III is unique in the series in that it's the
bridge that connects the original trilogy with the prequels. While
at first this might seem like it's a restriction, it actually serves
as an inspiration and constantly puts our ideas and designs into a
context. When designing entire worlds from scratch, context is a
valuable thing. We look at the artifacts and objects of the cultures
of the original trilogy films not for a starting point, but for an
ending point. Then we work backwards and ask ourselves what designs
would've come before. In some ways Episode III is visually a bridge
to Episode IV, but it also helps the story in that it is a
tremendous contrast to the look of A New Hope.
