Not really, just saying that you are attributing opinions to me that I have not given in this thread. I don''t think the OT is without flaws but the ones you have brought up and not very serious or indeed flaws at all. For the record, I think both the PT and OT has flaws but I favour the OT because I like the characters more, simple as that. Bye for now. Old Stoneface[/quote] 1. those were only machines that caused a chain reaction with the reactor (ala ANH) that took out the whole ship, again the Naboo pilots had know idea of how the TF ship is constructed and take advantage of weak spots or design flaws like with the Death Star, this is the fatal flaw in your argument. The film shows the Naboo trying to bomb the antennas to knock ot the droid control. It has been show shields only protect for so long before they fail like with the MF, the droid control ship's shield may have failed after a prolonged fighter attack but it may takjen to long. They would have no idea how far any explosions set off in the hangers could spread though the rest of the ship. The film show the hangers are in separated sections with large doors that can close sections off and contain fires and explosions. They blew up a Republic ship much larger than a fighter near the start of the film with no apparent damage to the hanger. As Anakin shows,they would have to fly all the way to the rear most hanger section, and fire into the machinery area set deep into the back most wall, yet they process no knowledge this could be done yet alone how to do it. If they only blow up the outer hanger sections, the TF can just contain them and continue operating the droids. Just like the Death Star, you must hit the weak spot, only the Naboo didn't know of it, while the Rebel did. By your logic, the Rebels should have flown into the Death Star's hangers and dropped bombs in them to knock it out. 2. Only Death Star 2 is protected, not the bunker or generator itself. The Rebel's Hoth Generator was a set of coils to protect the base, while the Imperal generator was a dish to project a shield around the Death Star. Iron Load's picture clearly shows this. 3. X-Wings are too high speed to attack ground tanks and walkers. The Army uses Warthogs and Helicopters to attack tanks, not F16s which bomb bunkers and attack other jet fighters. 4. How so?, the racers were trying to make each other crash, which would have a high chance of being killed, and Sandpeople taking pop shots at them, alot closer to a warzone than Luke was ever exposed to until he left Tatootine. Drummer boys were killed in battle, some died in an act of self-sacrifice many were caught in artillery fire. They fell out of favor during the 19th century. Culture bak then viewed children differentally than our modern culture, the Jedi may think that way, which has nothing to do with nukes, I don't even know where you got that from.They did use some airstrikes, but they wanted to capture the CIS so they would not escape. Again it is your opinion they are minor flaws, most of what I stated are serious flaws but you can choose to ignore them, but why nit pick the same ones in the PT but ignore them in the OT? Makes no sense to me. Again you are pushing for double standards.
