* Anakin and Padme are aware that if their wedding is discovered, not only will both of their reputations be heavily tarnished ([[CaptainObvious a very bad thing for a Senator]]), but Anakin will be kicked out of the Jedi Order.\\

* Dooku has bested Obi-Wan and Anakin, but then Yoda arrives.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That first and foremost Yoda would've taken a moment to disable Dooku's ship so that, however their duel fares, at least the villain wouldn't be able to escape easily. Any of the awesome Force powers he demonstrates (redirecting Dooku's lightning bolts and tossing huge chunks of debries around), would've likely sufficed.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' He completely ignores the ship standing ''right next to him'' until they switch from Force powers to lightsabers and then...

'''Instead:''' She not only flirts with him by wearing revealing clothing (and toys with him by saying that she can't love him because she's a senator), but she marries him at the end of the film, after knowing him for about two weeks ''tops!''\\

'''You'd Expect:''' Them to either have an affair without getting married (which, according to WordOfGod, would be more or less acceptable to the Jedi), OR for them to stay JustFriends and become PlatonicLifePartners, OR for Anakin to just leave the Jedi Order altogether-he doesn't have that many friends there, and there are plenty of other ways he could indulge his ChronicHeroSyndrome and/or love of flying in civilian life.\\
'''Instead:''' They have a secret ceremony, which Palpatine finds out about (and, in the EU, pretty much everyone who knows them well suspects), and the rest is history.



'''Instead:''' Windu decides to go remove Palpatine right there and then and rushes to his private quarters in the dead of night with ''three'' other Jedi Masters accompanying him. Palpatine kills those three, and while Windu does manage to gain the upper hand, Anakin rushes to the scene and ends up distracting Windu and allowing Palpatine to kill him as well. Afterwards, Palpatine speaks to the Senate and plays the entire thing as the Jedi Order being dangerous fanatics who attempted to assassinate him in order to take power. Which is a very believable interpretation of the events.
* Windu is in a position where he can kill Palpatine, and but Anakin is trying to talk him down.

'''Instead:''' Grievous tells his droids to back away to let him "deal with this Jedi slime… myself", and gets into a lightsaber fight with him, resulting in Grievous losing a couple of his hands to Obi-Wan, getting chased by him, and eventually being shot to death by Obi-Wan by Grievous's own blaster. So uncivilized, indeed.

'''Instead:''' He wastes valuable time holding Jango at blade-point for no other reason than to hold somebody hostage, expecting Dooku to relent and halt all his plans because he thought a hired gun bodyguard was in danger. Naturally, a squad of super battle droids shows up, and Fett is able to drive him off with his flamethrower after his attention turns to them. Even if HonorBeforeReason is in play, he still could've done it better.

Even if HonorBeforeReason is in play, he still could've done it better. \\
'''For added stupidity:''' There's no reason why the Jedi bothered to attack anywhere ''but'' the balcony. Anakin, Obi-Wan and Padme held their own pretty well, it only took a couple of Jedi to assist them, and forcing the enemy leaders to surrender would've been all the help they'd really need.\\
'''Instead:''' They disperse alongside the arena, and then all move to the open center, where Dooku easily swamps them with tons of expendable droids. Only one knight takes a shot at Dooku, and is instantly killed by Fett.

* Windu is in a position where he can kill Palpatine, and but Anakin is trying to talk him down.
''You'd Expect:'' Windu to just cut Palpatine's hands off and then take him into custody. They have the technology to replace his hand if he's found innocent, and if he's guilty, they can execute him. Either way, he can't use a lightsaber or force lightning while awaiting trial.\\
''Instead:'' He doesn't even consider Anakin's point, and instead moves in for the kill, only to get killed by Palpatine with Anakin's help.

* During his investigation, Obi-Wan gets a promising lead when his prospector-turned-diner-proprietor friend Dex tells him about the planet Kamino. When Obi-Wan goes to the Jedi Archives, however, he finds no information on Kamino, so he asks Jocasta Nu, the Archives Master, for help.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That when Jocasta sees the lack of information regarding Kamino, she might stop to consider any possible reasons why this might be. Maybe nobody in the Jedi knew it existed yet and therefore had no info to enter. Or maybe the info was entered, but...\\
'''Instead:''' She dismissively says that if it's not in the records, it simply doesn't exist. Fortunately, Obi-Wan is too dogged to accept that and goes to Yoda for help, who gets a rather insightful youngling to tell Obi-Wan that the information was erased from the Archives.\\
'''And On That Note, You'd Expect:''' That if a youngling could figure it out, surely an experienced knight like Obi-Wan could do so on his own.\\
'''Instead:''' He doesn't.



'''You'd Expect:''' Gunray would say "Thank you" to Sidious, end the communication and ''immediately'' [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere get the hell out from there]], seing how he had just been all but told that he had outlived his usefulness.\\

'''Instead:''' He kicks things off by insulting Vader and his religion right in front of everyone in that meeting room. That alone was highly uncalled for and would very likely get you fired in real life. As if he hasn't already committed an act of monumental douchebaggery at this point, he then insinuates that Vader is incompetent because he has yet to "conjure up the stolen data tapes or find the Rebels' hidden fortr--", which leads Vader to strangle Motti, saying that he "finds his lack of faith disturbing". He's only saved from being telekinetically strangled to death when Grand Moff Tarkin orders Vader to stop.

* Finn and Rose are in jail, and while discussing their mission to find a codebreaker, are approached by D.J., who claims he can do the job they need.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' They wouldn't trust his claim, as he's been imprisoned, and it’s a little too convenient for him to be a codebreaker.\\
'''Instead:''' They buy his story and, when the situation turns dire, he betrays them to the First Order.\\
'''For Added Stupidity:''' D.J. made it very clear in his conversation with Finn that he held no allegiance to the Resistance.

'''The Result:''' Not only has Kylo embarrassed himself in front of his military, but the "duel" has caused the whole effort to destroy the Resistance to end in a PyrrhicVictory. The surviving Resistance members have escaped on the Millennium Falcon and are planning to rebuild, and this may be sped along because the duel has inspired rebellion against the First Order.
