    Why can’t a planet like Earth exist in the Star Wars Universe? Why do they all have to exhibit only one type of climate? Jakku could be similar to Earth and every scene from the movie could take place on that one planet!

      I know, right? It’s one of the goofiest things about the Star Wars universe. Over the years, I’ve come to think that it’s just an easy way for us all to help keep track of the story, so people can focus on the what, why, and how, and don’t have to concentrate too hard on the where.

      Here’ the OT in a nutshell: First they were on the desert planet, and then they tried to go to the Earth-like planet but the bad guys blew it up, so they went to the jungle planet, and then the snow planet, then the swamp planet, then the cloudy planet, then the desert planet again, and the swamp planet again, and finally to the forest planet. See? It all makes sense! 😉
