Things that bug me about Star Wars: A New Hope

I love Star Wars. A lot. But there are a few things...
  1. Hold your fire. There's no life forms; it must've short-circuited.
    Why? WHY? Why not just blast EVERY escape pod to dust? The Family Guy parody said it best: "What? Are we getting paid by the laser now?"
  2. If they traced the robots here, they may have learned who they sold them to...
    "Robots"? Really?
  3. You don't need to see his identification... These aren't the droids you're looking for.
    I get the mind trick. I get that Stormtroopers can be weak-minded. But don't you think at some point one of the squad might say, "You know, Jeff, you're basically just repeating what the old guy says. Maybe we should take a look..."
  4. Door's locked, move on to the next one.
    It's nice to know the evil Empire that's willing to brutally enforce law still cares about civil rights.
  5. You don't believe in The Force, do you?
    And YOU had never even heard of it 48 hours ago. At least Han is old enough to remember when Jedi were a part of the Republic -even if he never encountered one. He's more familiar with the stories than YOU are. Maybe he's never seen it in action, but you're not really one to talk.
  6. Sir, this kid is the best bush pilot in the Outer Rim territories.
    Yeah, that jives. Because an Alaskan bush pilot would totally be great at flying a naval fighter in combat.
  7. Poor Chewie.
