Thing is the Force was presented in more practical, sciencey terms by Obi Wan in ANH:
"The Force is what gives the Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things."
I completely agree. I had considered making the same point, and elected not to only because it's pretty far off topic. I will, however, chime in, in complete agreement with this point. Having done that, it's also worth adding that I consider this very dialog in ANH as one of the justifications for considering Star Wars
squarely in the category of science fiction, as opposed to merely just space fantasy.
