When people talk about science fiction they often mention Star Wars. I’m a bit surprised by this because I’ve always thought that because of the Jedi and the Force, Star Wars is fantasy or at most science fantasy. What do you think?

I like polls in others’ blogs and I’m curious by nature so I decided to add my first poll. Feel free to vote, if you want to.

Defining a genre for a book can be quite difficult. For example, quite a few SF and fantasy books have mystery plots. But often enough these books are defined by their settings (the SF or fantasy kind) and only mystery books set in the modern(ish) setting are considered part of the mystery genre. The same thing happens in romance, too. Interesting.
