Before it was belived that planets could not orbit two suns, but it was found that planets are just as likely to orbit two suns then one. In the case when there are two stars a planet will orbit a combined center of mass between the stars. This can be seen in Star Wars 4, as Luke looks up into the sky and sees the two suns of tatooine. This is in fact possible, because a planet will either create a large orbit, or orbit the center of mass between the two stars.
