See Bandai's obsession with working Mobile Suit Gundam in jokes at the expense of all of its other series into its Media (Games, Manga, Series etc) for an example of this. Even a Gundam fan like me eventually ends up chaffing and desiring for them to use anything else in their large stable of produced media.
Considering that Gundam is Japan's Star Trek
, of course
there's going to be references to it everywhere!
