hclagopus tells us more.
OP here. I did not try to pick her up - I am a 42 year old married father of three and even if I wanted a date I have enough knowledge of the world to know that hot twentysomething blondes prefer hot twentysomething hunks - but I did try to make her smile, and failed miserably. And my geek level is so low that I read paper papers and constantly need my twelve year old son to help with my Iphone. (Plus I`ve never seen the sequels) I realize the girl probably lacked humour more than Star Wars knowledge, but what the heck. My wife laughed her ass off when I told her, though, bless her.

Oh Well...i never watched any star wars myself too!
His and her lives are probably more fulfilled than anyone who would try to charm a beautiful girl with that joke.
well, don't assume everyone knows or likes the same things as you do next time
Yeah because making star wars references tend to help with the ladies...
I'm 26 and a mom, and by most standards, I'm pretty hot. I say most, since some people with terrible taste may not find me attractive. Not only do I love Star Wars, I build Star Wars Lego sets in my spare time and have Star Wars brunches. You could probably get my number with a good light saber line
Star Wars is still going strong after more than 30 years, now will have another trilogy, sells millions in merchandise every year, has countless spinoffs, cartoons, books, figures, inside jokes, references in every form of media, etc. Nearly everyone can at least recognize it and after 3 decades it still has a huge following. This makes a big mark on pop culture which in turn is one part of the "American culture".
Everyone, please. I'm expecting a mass thumb down, but before that. I love star wars, seen all of em. But, are you seriously going to say it's part of the "culture"? I understand liking something and feeling the need to defend it, but... Come on... It's 2012. Star Wars died out ages ago. Even when it was "the thing" back then (if that's something you would say) you don't go around making Star Wars references to pretty woman and expect positive feedback. It'd be good if you were in a sci-fi convention, but general public? No.
134-Star Wars will never die out... It is sadly going through the normal life of a series was a great trilogy for the first 3 then it became middle aged and was still doing alright with its new 3 movies and now it is about to become a hospitalized senior citizen with Disney at the wheel. But I'm off topic it is a great series and will never die out making your argument invalid.
Who in all of the galaxies has an excuse to have not heard of Star Wars?? That's almost as bad as my sister asking who The Beatles were. :(
Ask her on a date and perhaps introduce her to Star Wars? The force is weak with this one by the way; of not knowing Star Wars
