Not sure if I’m not interpreting your post correctly, Mocata, but my last comment was addressing DominicCobb.
Adding to your post, there’s also:
a) Vader, Tarkin or the Emperor never bothering to monitor Galen after his exile/escape
b) Galen believing his flaw will never be detected by the Imperials in the middle of a battle by merely looking at the Rebels’ battle plan
c) the Imperials being unable or unwilling to send reinforcements to Scarif until the very end of the movie (roughtly 25 real life minutes after the battle has begun) while it takes like 2 minutes for the Rebels to send their whole fleet to the planet. Does the Empire have only 10 or 20 Star Destroyers in the whole galaxy?
d) the Scarif archives being guarded by a single guy during an intrusion/battle alert
while in the original you only needed to accept there was a flaw.
On second thought you were right when you said this
I hate the exhaust port complaint. People say that the Empire should’ve just covered it up, but that defeats the purpose of an exhaust port! It’s established that the port is tiny and apparently only someone with extreme propensity for the force can even hit it. Also, the port wasn’t what destroyed the Death Star. It was a chain reaction explosion caused by a torpedo making it all the way down the port and into the center of the space station. It isn’t like the exhaust port was a self-destruct button.
The funny thing is that when Lucasfilm addresses this complain, they add even more improbable and implausible stuff on top of the original plausible but improbable stuff.
Agreed. The dumb ideas added in RO are the problem, not the original plans that needed to be researched to find the weakness in 1977.
What is the problem with the RO explanation?
This is not how you do this thread right hahaha.
You’re definitely in violation of the second rule of the thread. I was willing to entertain the notion that this wasn’t a baffling complaint, but basically none of your points have anything to do with why someone making the flaw on purpose is a problem.
