I honestly did not know about the skull scene. As Brooke said, I've watched Star Wars more times than I can count, and I never picked up on that reference, either. The scene makes sense to me now that we've read and analyzed the soliloquy. Hamlet always seems to look at the skull in a thoughtful manner, almost as if he's envious of the dead and their lack of suffering. There's a photo of David Tennant portraying Hamlet that I also find particularly interesting. It's his face looking "beyond" the camera and it's all in broken glass, so it seems as if everything about Hamlet has shattered into pieces.
