* NoOSHACompliance: A ''Franchise/StarWars'' staple, which probably reaches its highest point in the area beneath the palace where Qui-Gon and Obi Wan fight Maul - a series of catwalks with no railings over a bottomless pit. Plus a corridor lined with energy fields that seemingly activate and deactivate according to some computer-controlled pattern and lack any apparent means of detecting whether or not there are people in the corridor. It makes [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack Cloud City]] look like a model of industrial safety in comparison!
** Naboo: idyllic paradise, or a labor union's worst nightmare.

** Naboo: idyllic paradise, or The Trade Federation's ships are little better, judging by how the designers apparently decided that putting the main reactor right next door to the hangar was a labor union's worst nightmare.good idea.

* FinalBattle: There are ''4'' of them (a 3-way lightsaber duel, a massive ground battle, a big space battle and a smaller ground assault). Its been pointed out that the ''Star Wars'' movies had an increasing number of final battles per movie. At an early screening for execs and higher-ups the editor pointed out that because there was so much going on the audience's mood was being pulled from comedy to drama to excitement to sadness so much that it was losing its power. Lucas realized that he had gone overboard and that he couldn't fix it in the editing because [[FourLinesAllWaiting all four scenes are intertwined]], and in the latter two movies he backed down on it significantly.

** Qui-Gon on hearing that the Jedi Council won't let Anakin become a Padawan says he will take on the boy as his apprentice, stating that Obi-Wan is ready to face the trials to become a Knight. This is against Jedi protocol.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Yeah... forcing a ruler to sign a document during war and with a gun pointed to her head. It doesn't matter which galaxy you're in, or how far far away it is, that's not binding because it's clearly under duress. (And why do invasions need to be legal?)

* DoingInTheWizard: Midichlorians. Even if it's just making TheForce genetic, which the originals already implied by making family origin important, it's still considered taking much of the mysticism out. Unless one considers them more like ''transmitters'', something that allows the Jedi and other Force users to access the Force.[[note]] While it contradicts established canon, many fans choose to reverse the the meaning of the count by retconning Midicholrains as being attracted by someone being force-sensitive and the stronger in the force they are, the stronger the attraction making a high Midichlorian count an indicator of force potential rather than the cause.[[/note]]

* LockedOutOfTheFight: The force-field gates that the Jedi fight Darth Maul through serve to separate Obi-Wan from Qui-Gon; Obi-Wan can only watch as Qui-Gon, fighting alone, falls to Darth Maul.
