That was only because the actor that played Darth Vader, Sebastian Shaw (West Country accent) and David Prowse (Norfolk accent) was a bit too country bumpkin for Starwars.

A similar thing happened with Terminator, Arnie wanted to do the voice over for the German audience, but because the Austrian accent sounds a bit farmerish to the Germans they canned his idea.
