* IdiotBall: The commander of the Star Destroyer doesn't fire on the escape pod leaving Leia's ship because there are no life signs onboard. The Star Wars Lore clearly establishes that droids are very common and perform a wide variety of significant tasks. As such, it is mind-boggling that a senior Imperial officer wouldn't consider the possibility that the pod might have droids onboard that might be important to the rebels.

* AchillesHeel: The Death Star is a moon sized space station capable of destroying a planet, with only one significant weakness; a two meter wide exhaust port that leads directly to the stations reactor. Even then, the staff is ray shielded, so only proton torpedoes have any chance of getting through, and a it's still a very slim chance at best.

** The above discrepancy was explained in the ''Legends'' continuity novel Literature/DeathStar. The man in charge of the superlaser was [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone suicidal with guilt from destroying Alderaan]] and pretended the sequence was taking longer while hoping for a miracle that would get him out of blowing up another planet. [[RedemptionEqualsDeath Luke got him what he wanted]].
