Once the rebels found out the Empire knew they were comiing and had a trap set for them, why didn't a few of the fighters break off and attack the shield generator directly?? Why did Han and co. have to finish the job??

Perhaps it could only be destroyed from the inside?? Too much shielding, like on an AT AT?? Just wondering!!

Any other puzzling questions you guys have from the OT??

Han is considered a General for some unknown reason why is a General on a strike team?

Here's another

When Luke leaves Tatooine never to come back what happens to the Moisture Vaporator farm?.Do Jawas com in and take it over? Can you claim it if it is abanded like they do with abanded vessels at sea? I mean what form of gov't if any in on Tatooine?

Lady Jaye, just watched Jedi again, lol; the deflector shield had to be deactivated for the shuttle to land on Endor, I'd guess it'd keep any ships from attacking the shield generator?

back to ranks for a sec, wasn't Han a captain at Echo base? how'd he become a general anyway? besides trusting an 'old friend', almost losing Chewie, the princess, and 3PO to the Empire, and being frozen in Carbonite, must've been his manuevers to evade the star destroyers (like Lando's 'manuevers at the Battle Tannab') ;)

Wasn't "captain" his rank because he was captain of his own ship?

Here's one;why didn't Yoda or Obi-Wan warn Luke that Palpatine was a Sith Lord? Or at least tell him The Emperor knew how to shoot lightning.

Ahh yes, you are right on that note!! Forgot!!

You know, as much as I despise the Special Editions, why did only Anakin revert to his younger self, and not Yoda or Ben?? I know it's just to further tie the OT to the prequels, but still!! I'm assuming that the next tweaks will replace older Ben with a young Obi Wan!!!

The shield generator protected not just the Death Star but itself.

Rank advancement in combat moves at a rapid pace. In earlier times, the generals were often in the field with the troops and the Rebellion couldn't be too choosey. Han was instrumental in the destruction of the first Death Star after all - no one else was able to protect Luke.

Two reasons for no warning about Palpatine: technically, "Sith Lord" had not been invented yet for starters, but even within story - it would not have mattered much for Luke. It's not as though his knowledge of Palpatine's status would have made him any more able to absorb Force Lightning. Luke's training was already extremely short and broad and going into the history of the Sith and Jedi wasn't on the syllabus on Dagobah. Luke knew he was an Emperor of the Dark Side and that was enough.

As for Anakin's reversion - Lucas has said it's because he technically died when he changed from Anakin to Vader and so his ghost is of his younger self. I call it baloney since he redeemed himself at the end of ROTJ before dying but that's Lucas for you.
