Star Wars jargon in Catalyst 4500-E Series SUP?

I've been curious about this for a very long time, I guess it's time to ask.

When the 4500-E series switch boots and if you issue a 'show run' there's several Star Wars themed references and their revisions.

Does anyone know what these actually are and why they are using Star Wars terminology?

Here's the output:

Cisco IOS Software, Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch Software (cat4500e-ENTSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.2(53)SG2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

  Think they just like to keep it lite  and not let it get boring .  I have seen a few "dagobah" messages as it loads too.
