I've never used Star Office, but ...
Try to export drawings into Postscript or any other format, 
then print that drawings. With these you'll guess:

a) If it's fault of ghostscript driver.
b) If it's fault of the driver.
c) If it's fault of the printer.

If you can see the bar graphs in .jpg and they look good, and you
can print those .jpg (using xv , for example), then it's fault
of the Staroffice "renderer". But if .jpg's doesn't look good it's
a general fault of the StarOffice "drawing engine". 

Anyway, always it's a good idea to do several conversions/changes
to isolate which "element" of the "chain" is the faulty.
