Lynch is a strange fellow.
I think a Lynch Star Wars would have been a lot like Twin Peaks.

Here's an excerpt from the plot of Twin Peaks:

With the help of the Log Lady, Cooper follows Annie and Earle into the Black Lodge, which turns out to be the red-curtained room from his dream. He is greeted by the Man From Another Place, the Giant, and the spirit of Laura Palmer, who each give Cooper encoded prophecies about his future and demonstrate the properties of the Black Lodge, which defy the laws of time and space. Searching for Annie and Earle, Cooper encounters doppelgangers of various dead people, including Maddy and Leland Palmer, who taunt him with strange, false statements. The doppelgangers eventually lead Cooper to Earle, who demands that Cooper give up his soul in exchange for Annie's life. Cooper agrees and Earle kills him. Seconds later, Killer Bob appears and reverses time in the Lodge, bringing Cooper back to life. Bob tells Earle that he cannot take human souls and then kills Earle and takes his soul. Bob then turns on Cooper, who for the first time in the Lodge experiences fear. Cooper flees, pursued by Bob and a doppelgänger of himself.
