Along that line, there are multiple stars. Shouldn't it then be a Stars War?

Perhaps, but typically compound nouns in English use a singular form for the first element if that element is a noun. If the first element has an irregular plural, it is more likely to use a plural element, but still probably won't.

Compare:

dogcatcher - catches many dogs
cat-lover - doesn't just love one cat
coat rack - holds multiple coats

toothbrush - isn't for just one tooth, but still we don't say teethbrush
mousetrap - could be able to catch multiple mice at once, but it's not a micetrap regardless

On the other hand, you can get some like people mover and numbers game and pants pocket.

There is some semantic motivation for using plurals in the first element in those cases where it's allowed, but from what I can tell it's a bit complicated. Aside from the case of plurale tantum (words like pants, scissors, alms) that aren't typically used in the singular at all.

But I would say that generally the use of a singular form, at least, does not imply much about the meaning. A "star war" doesn't imply that there was only one star involved/associated.

Should read "Galaxy Trio."
