Larry Niven's Known Space series has a Hyperspace, and Hyperdrive, and
there is the small problem with it:

You can't use it within some arbitrary distance of ANY gravity well.

It is possible that the Hyperdrive in the SW Universe has the same limitation.
This would tend to explain some of the time that Han Solo took to
`make the jump to lightspeed' in SW:ANH after leaving Mos Eisley in a hurry,
pursued by Imperial Cruisers.
