However, the Star Wars movies have a very long history now of showing bad guy "incompetence". No matter how powerful the empire is supposed to be on paper, when its go time, they always have hilarious gaps in their security, troopers that can't shoot, etc etc. Whether that's the "will of the force" or "plot armor" or XYZ, take your pick...but that is certainly not new to the franchise.Like I said, as a guy who runs Star Wars D6, that all fell flat for me. Star Wars sensors are very powerful, as the movies and other media have repeatedly shown. A military complex like that is going to pretty much instantly spot anything in line of sight, and have a sensor network laid out around it to detect things that aren't in line of sight.
