Star Wars and Buddhism I

I have always been a very big fan of Star Wars. I find the philosophical connotations of the "Force" particularly fascinating. Quote 5 in my list of memorable quotes is the following:
"Train yourself to let go of everyting you fear to lose" (Yoda, Episode III)

I have only recently realized how close to Buddhism the teachings of the Force are. Especially with respect to attachment and how it causes pain and suffering.
