Inspired by multiple threads, I was trying to rank the biggest plot holes (IMHO): Rather that name all the movies, I just used the first letters in the titles.
[li]ROTJ: Luke and Leia being sisters, with NO foreshadowing in the earlier movies (quite the opposite actually: the knight gets the princess). Solved a love triangle issue, though.[/li][li]ROTJ: Having the Death Star shields down before the Emporer fell. Moments after Vader/Palps beat Luke, they would’ve died in the explosion.[/li][li]ROTS/ROTJ: Leia remembering her real mother, despite being an Padme dying in childbirth.[/li][li]ROTJ: Ewoks with primitive weapons beating an armored legion with mobile armor support. And where did Ewoks have time to prepare those traps?[/li][li]ROTS/TPM: Obi-Wan beats Anakin because he has the “higher ground”. Yet he earlier beats Darth Maul from the lower ground.[/li][li]TPM/Star Wars: Mystical Force that binds the galaxy is midichlorians.[/li][li]ROTJ: Mission to Endor requiring stealth, yet brought along a noisy golden C3PO for no discernable military or technical reason.[/li][li]TPM/AOTC: No one bothered to free the slaves in Tatooine in 10 years, despite a senator, Jedi masters, and especially Anakin knowing about this outlawed practice.[/li][li]TPM: The pod race; gambled too much to find spare parts. In this dire emergency (planet conquered, etc), couldn’t they have found another way to Coruscant? Like say, going to a cantina and hiring a ride?[/li][li]TPM: The prophesy about “bringing balance to the force”. The good jedi far outnumber the bad jedi… there’s only one way to balance this.[/li][/ol]
What’s your list? Or possible answers to the issues above?
I did not include
[li]Obi-Wan telling Luke Vader murdered his father, since Obi Wan & Yoda did try to retcon that. [/li][li]R2D2 and C3PO knowing people and places in the prequels. They erased C3PO’s memory banks.[/li][li]Star Wars: “Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise”. If they hit the heroes, we’d have a short movie.[/li][/ul]
