The entire series is a nod to Westerns, yes, not just this particular trope, no. In fact, the series touches upon a number of different themes within the Western genre.

Yes, this episode was a nod to classic westerns like "The Magnificent Seven", but while you mentioned "Hidden Fortress" you kind of missed the point that "The Magnificent Seven" was inspired by "Seven Samurai" -- another film from Akira Kurosawa who was a HUGE influence on George Lucas. It's all connected...
