Thanks for the clarification. I am indeed one of those literal, unimaginative people who liked Star Wars. Although maybe I should get a second opinion on Episodes 1 to 3 as I didn't like those either. Certainly while watching them I kept getting this feeling I couldn't explain, but then my friend told me it was probably just my gag-reflex kicking in. Still, if I didn't like Sunshine and it is to be considered one of the best, most influential movies in science fiction, then maybe I am missing something in the prequel trilogy? Anyhoo - has anything been put forward to support Sunshine being important?
