WTF? They don't get married - but instead they find out they're brother and sister? How did George Lucas manage to mangle that?
Lucas obviously wanted the Princess to hook up with the Rogue With a Heart of Gold to shake things up, so of course he had to nip in the bud any chances of her ending up with Farm Boy.

I know I've recently mentioned people thinking a book from the late 70's/early 80's was ripping off Harry Potter. I do think I may have heard an anecdote about someone actually accusing Romeo and Juliet of ripping off West Side Story before, mentioned by my professor in college when we covered the pair of them in Humanities. I wouldn't be surprised to find similar accusations of Hamlet stealing ideas from The Lion King.
