My fear of minorities has been transferred into fear of the Romulans.

An insular genre allows insular fetishes.

Michael Moorcock addressed this very question:

"You could argue that it reflects the state of the medium! It's not shocking to me, as an only child, since I've never really been faced with the prospect. I've usually included it in my stories to add a touch of decadence and inbreeding to the people in question. Elric was his cousin and that's legal. Well so's most of the rest in Mississippi, but we'd best not go into that here. To me it's a symbol of oversophisticated blood, if you like."

And:

"Like the Egyptians and others incest between those of royal (holy) blood wasn't regarded as perverse. In fact, in most of the cultures I wrote about in which incests takes place it isn't a crime or considered immoral."

See? Insular. They could have butchered some one else's citizens.

They only butchered their own when they couldn't butcher others. Those Mediterraneans kept kicking their ass.

So those countries are locked in their house, like those kids in Flowers in the Attic?

Like I said earlier, there's a whole lot more Luke and Leia making out in those old Marvel Star Wars comics back before Lucas let everyone know they were siblings.
