Star Wars 3 and Transformers: The Movie

I downloaded a bunch of desktop wallpapers from Star Wars, which promote "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith". One of them has a picture of Darth Vader, with the words:

"Rise, Lord Vader."

And I expect the next line to be:

"Optimus!"

It's weird, but it's happening to me nonetheless. In "Transformers: The Movie", as Hot Rod opens the Matrix (the source of power for the good guys, the Autobots), the voice of Optimus Prime, the fallen Autobot leader, says in the background, "Arise, Rodimus Prime!" in his low, husky (?) voice. Hot Rod, who transforms into the leader Rodimus Prime, utters his mentor's name in response.

In "Star Wars 3", after Anakin Skywalker has been retrofitted into his cybernetic body, the Emperor, in the background, tells him to rise. And Darth Vader responds, "Yes, master." Again, the disciple calls out to the mentor.

Coincidence?
