    I was going to pose the question 'what links these two films?' but I am more interested in finding out why...

    At the start of the film Indie & the girl eventually fall through the blinds of the shops into Short Round's car. At that point you can see the name of the bar: Bar Obi Wan. Is this some kind of reference / homage / tribute to the Star Wars (then) trilogy?

    Yes because Spielberg (director) worked with George Lucas (co-writer) in creating the Indiana Jones films. George Lucas directed Star Wars. Whether or not there is a more specific reason, I don't know but I think that's the connection.

    Lucasfilm/George Lucas which owns the rights to both series of films is the connection.

    plus they use the same joke.
    The one with chewie and han running after the Storm T's. Then Turning round when they see How many there is.
    Indi does the same at the end of Temple of doom Just before they get to the rope bridge.
