I've seen too many reviews where people repeat the same supposed plot holes that aren't actually plot holes. So I wanted to make a thread to capture these, debunk them, and then I'll put together a helpful webpage so we can all point out how silly these people are. Help me out team! 1) Why doesn't Vader recognize R2D2 in the original trilogy? -Vader doesn't actually interact with R2D2 other than flying by him on the battle of Yavin. 2) Why doesn't Vader recognize C3PO in the original trilogy? -The only time Vader sees C3PO is when 3PO is on the back of Chewbacca in pieces. Yes, he still has the distinctive whiny voice, but consider there's Han being frozen, soldiers everywhere, Lando, Lobot, Ugnauts, steam, loud machines, and poor lighting, plus the fact that all protocol droids look pretty much the same in the SW universe, it's not surprising that Vader didn't give 3PO a second glance. 3) Isn't Ewan McGregor too young to play Obi-Wan? -Technically, yes. McGregor was in his early 30s when he filmed Episode 3. Guiness was in his early 60s when he filmed Episode 4. There's a difference of about 30 years. Now take into consideration that with makeup and the beard, do you buy Episode 3 Obi-Wan as between 35-40 years old? Do you think Episode 4 Obi-Wan looks between 55-60? Add in the fact that Obi-Wan's been hanging out in a desert for 20 years, and it doesn't seem to be that big of an issue. 4) How does the Death Star take 18 years to build when the second one only took around 5-7? -First off, remember the second Death Star is only halfway built in ROTJ. Second, ask any engineer and they'll tell you that it's much easier to build something the second time around - you learn from your mistakes, you streamline processes, you've already got materials hanging around. So let's look at it this way. If the Empire took 18 years to build the first Death Star (between Episodes 3 and 4), they probably would have started construction (or at least planning) on the second one around or shortly before the events of Episode 4. If 7 years take place between the beginning of construction of Death Star 2 and its destruction in ROTJ, and considering the fact that it's really only halfway done (even though the gun is operational), that means the full DS2 will be done in about 14-15 years. That seems entirely plausible considering how building something is easier the second time around. 5) Why does Leia remember Padme but Luke doesn't? -Um, don't got a good answer to this one. In the original script, Padme and Leia lock eyes and smile at each other and that is supposed to be their moment of connection. That was cut from the final edit.
