Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HauntingStarringPolterguy'': The Sardinis fail to see that just moving to another house won't fix their problem. Even after they've been scared out of three of them in the same way that clearly points to a poltergeist, they just move to another house. Also, they never hire a ghostbuster or something like this.

** One Federation droid control ship, two Imperial Death Stars, and a First Order Starkiller Base later, the villains of the film series seemingly still haven't cottoned on to the idea that focusing most of your military strength into a single, centralized station with numerous, readily-exploitable weaknesses isn't the winning strategy it may appear to be. The baddies tend to have a supreme sense of arrogant superiority about them, but one would think they'd reevaluate their MO after the ''first'' time their ultimate super-weapon was destroyed by a RagtagBunchOfMisfits, otherwise you haven't got much to be smug about.
