There are just as many differences between them as there are similarities, and the 'evil overlord that must be fought' story was around long before the American Revolution.

It was more based on World War 2. Even the design for Darth Vader's helmet was based on Nazi combat helmets.

I'm not sure about the details of Star Wars, but if that's all you're basing it on, you could say a lot of things are like that.
