It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single Imperial Storm Trooper in possession of a good blaster must be in want of SOME BASIC AIMING ABILITY.
I know that we can’t exactly have the protagonists die immediately, but those fellas are so inaccurate as to be redundant, plot-wise. Even a little bit of blaster-whipping would be an improvement.
Which does throw into question this moment in Episode IV:
LUKE: These are the same Jawas that sold us R2 and 3PO.
BEN: And these blast points, too accurate for Sandpeople. Only Imperial stormtroopers are so precise.
LUKE: Why would Imperial troops want to slaughter Jawas?
‘[S]o precise’. Hmmm.
Honestly, some times I get so mad I just have to blog.
