A thought on Fanfic in which Tony Stark loves Star Wars

I just read yet another fanfic in which Tony Stark loves Star Wars and insists on showing it to Captain America and Thor as a perfect introduction to modern cinema. I've even written a slimmed down version of this myself in Cat Chaser, where we get this exchange:
"You've seen Star Wars?" asked Sam, imagining Thor and Teal'c watching the movies and comparing notes.

"All three sagas," Thor said in his normal voice. "Stark insisted."

But it just occurred to me that Tony might actually dislike Star Wars because of one key scene, in which Luke deliberately abandons technology and the best computers available - "Trust the Force, Luke."

So, dear readers, a small poll...
