He then meets Aeolus, who provides Odysseus with the wind to get home, but his men open the sack of winds, causing the ship to be blown away again, to the island of the witch known as Circe. His allies are Hermes, who assists Odysseus in freeing his men, then after Circe is outwitted, she becomes a useful ally.

Meeting the Mentor (Star Wars)
After the message is finished, Obi-Wan tells Luke about his father and gives him his father's lightsaber. Luke then decides to help.
Crossing the Threshold (Odyssey)
Odysseus finally reaches Troy, and thus the battle finally commences. After the Greeks finally win, Odysseus begins his journey home.
Crossing the Threshold (Star Wars)
After the unruly event that took place after Luke returned home, (hint hint, the unexpected greeting from his aunt and uncle), he has no reason whatsoever to stay, and goes with Obi-Wan to Mos Eisley to find a ship that will take them to Alderaan. They encounter some Stormtroopers on the way.
Tests, Allies, and Enemies (Star Wars)
When Obi-Wan and Luke arrive at Mos Eisley, they hire a pilot named Han Solo to take them to Alderaan, along with a wookie named Chewbacca. Stormtroopers attempt to stop them from escaping, using their hardcore accuracy to shoot them from the sky. Too bad they missed. As they head towards Alderaan, the Death Star blows it to bits.
Circe tells Odysseus that in order to find his way home, he must seek the advice of a dead prophet in the Underworld. Odysseus begins his travel to the Underworld to speak with him.
Approach (Star Wars)
As they're on their way to Alderaan, Ob-Wan is training Luke in the ways of the Force, but senses that something is wrong. When they arrive to where Alderaan used to be, it's gone, but they spot the Death Star from a distance. They then get stuck in a tractor beam, and get pulled into a port in the Death Star.
Return with the Elixir (Star Wars)
Luke and Han Solo both get medals for their services, and Chewbacca gets to come up with them to watch them get medals, because the Rebels thought it would be fun to watch Chewbacca get crapped on.
Death and Rebirth (Odyssey)
Odysseus meets the prophet, who tells him that in order to get home, he must sail past the Sirens, then between Scylla and Charybdis, then to the island of the sun cattle, but not to even touch them, lest he and his crew be stricken down by Zeus.
Luke, Han, Leia, and Chewbacca jump down a trash chute to escape, then Luke gets attacked by some sort of creature in the sewage, then the walls start to close around them, but R2-D2 shuts it down just in time.
Death and Rebirth (Star Wars)
Luke and the others sneak off the ship, and Luke and Han disguise themselves as Stormtroopers taking Chewbacca into custody, while Obi-Wan disables the tractor beam. Luke and Han free the Princess, but are discovered, and end up in a firefight with Stormtroopers.
After Odysseus goes between Scylla and Charybdis, his men kill the sun cattle, and Zeus kills all of them except for Odysseus. Odysseus then washes onto Calypso's island, and she cares for him, but keeps him there against his will at the same time.
Road Back (Star Wars)
Obi-Wan engages Darth Vader, then conveniently dies of old age and "becomes one with the Force" half a second before he gets cut down, giving the others enough time to escape. The Death Star follows them, with the intention of blowing up the Rebel base, while Luke joins the Rebel force that intends to strike the Death Star in hopes of destroying it. (Although you'd think that a moving space station that can destroy planets would be used more than once, but noooooo, it can only be used once for the sake of the plot. I mean, if there was something "in the way", I get the feeling that they were probably thinking, "Darn, there's a planet in the way of the planet we want to blow up. Curses! Now we have to wait until we can move all the way around it. If only we had some sort of weapon that could destroy a planet with ease. Yep, that would be really handy right now...")
Road Back (Odyssey)
Hermes tells Calypso to let Odysseus go, who then returns home, finds Telemachus, and together they plan to get rid of all the suitors.
Resurrection (Star Wars)
Luke is the only pilot left on the Death Star, and Han shows up at the last minute to save Luke's life, who then uses the Force to make the almost impossible shot to blow up the Death Star.
Odysseus strings his bow, then he and Telemachus kill all of the suitors.
