1) Star Wars was intentionally held back by Lucas until BD had a large enough market that he could line his pockets again.

2) A lot of older releases cost a lot... A LOT to remaster at the level they deserve to look good on BD. If you don't spend money then you get crap like the first releases of Gangs of New York or Gladiator, or heaven forbid Patton.
