'''Instead''': She complies with their demands and disables the shields, thus costing the First Order a huge military asset. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplementary materials show]] Phasma is actually a psychopath with no loyalty to the First Order or anyone else, but she could have tried running or grabbing Han or Finn hostage while they were distracted by the alarm or reinforcements coming.

'''Instead:''' They arrive at broad daylight, make a sweep over the farm, land a mile away and then dramatically walk over, giving Erso ample time for anything from escaping to mounting defence to killing himself.\\

'''You'd Also Expect:''' Knowing perfectly well that they need Erso not just alive but ''cooperative'', Krennic would give the strictest "take them '''all''' alive" order.\\
'''Instead:''' They let Erso's daughter get away, kill his wife in front of him, and then honestly expect from Erso something other than sabotage.

** One of the opening scenes in this film is Han's rescue. How's it pulled off? First, Luke sends R2-D2 and C-3PO into the palace of Jabba the Hutt as 'gifts'. Artoo is the only one of the droids who knows the truth.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Jabba to have his agents rip Artoo apart as soon as he is accepted. Then they could find Luke's lightsaber, hidden inside the droid for use during the rescue.\\
'''Instead:''' He does none of that and leaves Artoo intact, so the lightsaber stays hidden.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' When they catch Leia freeing Han from the carbonite, Jabba would have both of them killed. And Chewie, whom Leia had brought in as a 'prisoner' while disguised as a bounty hunter.\\
'''Instead:''' They throw Han in with Chewie and Jabba enslaves Leia. Even having the chain for that right near her.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' After Luke tries to use a JediMindTrick on Jabba, which would surely make the Hutt (resistant to such tricks) aware that the guy is a Force user, the gangster would find a way of killing Luke that no Force user, Sith or Jedi, would be able to resist.\\
'''Instead:''' Jabba throws Luke to a rancor. Luke is then able to use the Force to fight the monster and eventually cause its death.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Jabba to have him killed on the spot. And [[DeadlyEuphemism take care]] of his friends, for good measure.\\
'''Instead:''' Jabba decides to throw Luke, Han and Chewie to the Scarlacc, which only allows the group to pull off a daring and spectacular escape. This also results in Leia killing him with [[HoistByHisOwnPetard the chain he had used to enslave her.]]
