Whoa, not meaning to lecture, instead typin on a phone and trying to be succinct? Star wars is campbellian too, way more than dune even. I find when most people say an sf work felt like fantasy they mean the heroic narrative. If that's not what you mean, cool.

Okay, calming down. Sorry, the succinctness came across as terseness to me.

I've seen the heroic narrative before - Star Wars, like you said, which definitely feels like science fiction to me. I think with Dune, it was specifically the language used and the way it was used, which says more about my biases than anything else.
