Giant Gaping Plot Holes

(calling all star wars geeks)

To celebrate the arrival of Revenge of the Sith me and the monkeys pounding on typewriters who produce this blog, are pleased to present: STAR WARS PLOT HOLES

1 - Darth Vadar can sense the presence of his son Luke from across the galaxy (ep vi), but when his daughter Leah is standing directly in front of his face (ep iv) he feels nothing?

2 - Vadar mocks the Death Star (ep iv) saying "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force." but wasn't the Death Star created by Dooku and the Emperor (ep ii)?

3 - And if destroying a planet is nothing for the Force, why go to the time and trouble of building the Death Star in the first place?

4 - We can understand why the driods don't recognize Ben when they reunite (ep iv), but why doesn't Ben recognize the droids?

5 - Why hide Luke on Tatoonie under his real last name?

Of course, the biggest, most annoying plot hole in the history of plot holes is not in Star Wars, but in Harry Potter, Book Four. We'll discuss that later this summer when book six is released.
