** Director Krennick is being slowly usurped by Tarkin, so he goes to Darth Vader to ask for his help. Not the brightest idea, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Vader is clearly displeased by this intrusion but does not indicate Krennick has been demoted or taken off the project. Krennick then wonders aloud if he's still in charge.\\

'''You'd Expect:''' He'd take Lord Vader's silence as a "yes", thank him for his time and get out of there like his ass was on fire.

'''Instead:''' He pushes his luck by asking him to speak to the Emperor as a favor, which naturally pisses Vader off more than he already was. Honestly, he's lucky he only choked on his aspirations.

* Yoda seems to grab the IdiotBall with both hands and jumping off a cliff by effectively telling Anakin not to mourn or even miss his loved ones when they pass away. Seriously, the guy has known Anakin for over ten years. He knows that Anakin has a short temper and a rebellious streak that has gotten him into trouble more than once. He knows that Anakin is [[InfromedAbility apparently very powerful]]. Was it too much effort to say, "Careful around this you must be, young Skywalker; a self-fulfilling prophecy this may be!" Or did Yoda just feel like being a dick for the sake of the plot? Why this is a problem: Yoda's advice is CompletelyMissingthePoint. Anakin comes to him to talk about some visions filled with pain and suffering he had been having lately, not to cry on his shoulder about the death of somebody. If anything, Yoda should have lectured him about the nature of premonitions and how they do not always come true, since "difficult to see, always in motion the future is".
** Or better yet, just tell the guy: "Death, a part of life it is. Powerful enough to stop it, no one is, not even the Jedi. Know that the dead are at peace with the Force."
** Yoda's not 100% at fault here. While he could've been a bit more sensitive, he had no idea who Anakin was talking about. For all he knew, Anakin was talking about Obi-Wan and was just relying on that for his advice. You'd think Anakin would just grow a pair and confess it all to Yoda right then and there, ridding him of his troubles. That was a golden opportunity that he missed completely!

** Afterwards the Imperials realise that the plans have most likely been jetissoned to the surface of the nearest planet, Tatooine, and send a force of Stormtroopers there to recover them.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The Stormtroopers to immediately seize every spaceport on the planet (a dump like Tatooine couldn't possibly have had many of those), declare a strict no-fly zone, and commandeer or destroy everything even remotely space faring, even if it's a piece of junk. This way they could've procced with the searches at their leisure. And if they they turn out nothing, there was always an option to haul a certain planet-destroying weapon there and blow Tatooine up together with the plans.\\
'''You'd Also Expect:''' That since they have apparently fallen on the trail of those droids they were looking for, and it led them to a certain farm, they would've set an ambush there and wait for Luke's return.\\
'''Instead:''' They murder the farmers, apparently content with losing their only trail, and then stumble about Mos Eisley like morons, making next to no efforts to impede the droids' escape. Naturually, the droids escape.

'''You'd Expect:''' Yoda to use the Force to quickly pull/push Anakin and Obi-Wan out of the way of the metal pillar, before turning his attention back to Dooku.\\
'''Instead:''' He chooses to dramatically lift the entire thing.\\
'''You'd Then Expect:''' Yoda to throw the pillar at Dooku's ship to damage it and/or total it.\\
'''Instead:''' He ''slowly'' tosses it aside, while Dooku uses the distraction to flee.\\
''What's worse:''' Before the fight had even begun, absolutely nothing prevented Yoda from taking a moment to twist Dooku's escape ship into a pretzel before turning attention to the man himself.\\
