There is an issue with the questions order. The question about the general doesn't come after the city he is from

It asks about the city, then there are three questions after it that all mention the city. No matter what order they are put in, only one will come directly after.

It does look odd though, maybe not odd persee, but does not flow well. Perhaps add "same" so you will get "from that "same city". It will remove any possible confusion and makes it look smoother I think.

I suppose almost every country in the world has an area used as filming location of some movie. But none of the other country quizzes mentions those, so why should this one be an exception? Unless, of course, it asks about the name of a certain area known for its Star Wars connection.

because Star Wars, unlike most other movies, is a seminal event in the lives of many people over 40 and a cultural touchstone around the whole world. Also, the deserts of Tatooine are a more distinct and memorable film location than.... that warehouse from Reservoir Dogs... or many other film locations you could name. Those specific dunes are known for little else other than Star Wars, unlike, say, the Grand Canyon featured at the end of Thelma and Louise. Finally, the ruins of Lars' Moisture Farm and Mos Eisley are still there in southern Tunisia and are now a minor tourist attraction.
