* 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.

* ShowDontTell: Padmé says "My people are suffering," and Sio Bibble says "The death toll is catastrophic," but we don't really ''see'' the impact that the Trade Federation invasion had on Naboo.

* ShowDontTell: Padmé says "My people are suffering," and Sio Bibble says "The death toll is catastrophic," but we don't really ''see'' the impact that the Trade Federation invasion had on Naboo. FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that, as all communications are blacked out, that conspicuously clear message must be a fake made by the Trade Federation to induce Amidala to reveal her position and there is actually nothing to ''see''.
