'''Instead:''' They engage the Gungans on their terms, leaving defense of the city to engage in an open field where the Gungan weapons are most effective. It also acts as a wonderful distraction for the Jedi operating in town. These guys never read up their SunTzu.

'''You'd Expect''': Amidala to have brought some proof of the invasion, given the only reason the Trade Federation is getting away with this nonsense is how effectively they're blacking out communications. If she had recorded her harrowing escape from the planet, that alone would have been proof enough. If nothing else she could have brought in Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan as witnesses to confirm her story -- and, incidentally, bring their own charge against Nute Gunray for trying to ''kill'' two ambassadors sent by the Chancellor himself.\\

'''You'd Think:''' Since they were in cahoots until that moment, Dooku would speak up about the script Palpatine just went off from and out him as Darth Sidious in front of two Jedi Knights. It's clear from the look on Dooku's face that he wasn't counting on this sudden change of plans, but he's still a Sith, and betrayal is kind of their thing. Granted, the odds of Anakin actually believing the guy previously who sliced his arm off and tried to kill him probably aren't ''that'' great, but it could at least plant the seeds of suspicion in Anakin's mind and ultimately help speed Sidious's downfall.\\

** Emperor Palpatine clearly desires to turn Luke to the Dark Side of the Force because he basically has all of his father's potential, but not the crippling injuries that make him a DarkLordOnLifeSupport. To achieve this, he emotionally antagonizes Luke and then gets him and Vader to start dueling to the death.\\

'''Instead:''' Apparently not taking into account the possibility of Rey trying to use the Force to pull off a JediMindTrick, he leaves a stormtrooper guard (which are unfortunately, weak-minded) in the room, and Rey quickly figures out how to JediMindTrick him into releasing her... and drop his weapon (though it takes 3 tries to succeed).

** Poe Dameron and Finn have stolen a TIE Fighter from the First Order and are flying back to Jakku to retrieve BB-8. Finn immediately starts yelling at Poe not to go back, all the while, a missile is heading towards them.\\

'''Even Worse:''' Maul just stares while Obi-Wan jumps from the pit directly over him, and doesn't make a single move to defend, or more effectively, attacking him mid air just like Obi-Wan would do to Anakin at the third film. [[MemeticMutation Maul had the high ground!]]\\
'''Lampshaded:''' In a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_Episode_I_Journal:_Darth_Maul junior novelization of the movie from Darth Maul's point of view]], Darth Sidious himself notes Maul's stupidity after the fact.
-->'''Sidious''': It would have been an easy job to dislodge his grip, knock him thousands of meters down into the pit, and end the life of another nuisance of a Jedi. Instead, Maul gloated. He contemptuously kicked Obi-Wan's lightsaber into the pit. He paced in front of the stricken Jedi, snarling. No doubt my apprentice wanted to savor the moment. Against all my teaching, he hesitated in order to revel in his triumph.

'''Even Worse:''' Anakin had a dream about Padmé dying during childbirth. Now, the last time Anakin dreamed about someone close to him dying painfully,(please note that Padmé was there while he had these dreams, and came with him when he investigated and knew everything about the entire damn event) it was when his mother died. So to establish, Anakin -- who has a record for having prophetic dreams about people he cares greatly for dying in pain that actually come to pass -- told Padmé that he had one of those dreams about her. Now, this would be a good time to take this seriously and leave for a planet so that you are certain that you will safely deliver the child, thus going through with the plan you already thought of and wanted to do. Granted, they didn't know how she would've died, but the above still is pretty reasonable.

'''Instead:''' He and the masters decide to make the arrest alone, without any perimeter or surveillance of the exits whatsoever, and without being prepared for severe resistance from Palpatine. The results end up being disastrous for all four Jedi Masters, as Anakin's intervention into the confrontation causes the mission to fail and leads to all the Masters dying.\\
'''Even Worse:''' The now non-canon ''Legends'' universe had a counterpart to Order 66, named Order 65. That order calls for the arrest or execution of the Chancellor by the Clone Army whenever the Chancellor tries to seize complete power. If Windu knew the Clone Army had this kind of Order, which he most likely ''certainly'' did, why the ''hell'' did he not think about that in the first place?

'''Instead:''' They just sit on their butts until Anakin Skywalker (aka Darth Vader) arrives and... well, [[DeadlyEuphemism takes care of them]].\\
'''Even Worse:''' In the non-canon video game adaptation, they get holographic footage of Anakin killing a couple of Nemodian aides and several guards, and make the guards try to stop him, and even then, they don't try to escape until Anakin is about to enter the room they're in.

** Near the end, the Millennium Falcon's escape is stopped dead in its tracks by the still broken hyperdrive. Meanwhile Imperial fighters are shooting at the Falcon. Chewbacca frantically tries to fix the hyperdrive and R2 also goes in to help with repairs. 3PO yells at R2: "Let Chewbacca fix it! Come here and reattach my broken leg!".\\
'''You'd think''': 3PO would urge R2 to do his best on the Falcon as R2 is a highly skilled ''Astromech'' droid, born and bred to ''fix starships'' and that a broken leg makes no difference if the ship you're traveling onto blows up in space. Even more so, R2 even ''explains'' to him that he found out the drive had been ''tampered'' with in the first place - and [=3PO=] for whatever reason disbelieves him!
