Late Realizations

Thanks to depressed Darth, one of my favorite fake tweeter accounts that I follow, I have now realized that there is a key contradiction in Star Wars from the very start: Obi Wan figures out that the Empire was behind the Sandcrawler massacre because "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise" yet Stormtroopers cannot hit Han and the rest to save their lives.

Ah, but you say the Stormtroopers were supposed to miss in SW so that they could track the Falcon back to the rebel hideaway.  Ah, of course.  But that does not explain the inter-movie paradox of lousy Stormtrooper markspersonship in Empire and Return....

Hmmm.  Back to my vacation.

Kudos for your powers of observation; it took you this long to figure this out?

Hope you're enjoying the Magic!
