Sandpeople always ride single file to hide their numbers.

These are the same Jawas that sold us Artoo and Threepio.

And these blast points, too accurate for Sandpeople. Only Imperial stormtroopers are so precise.

Why would Imperial troops want to slaughter Jawas?

I've wondered how Lucas could reconcile this piece of dialog with the fact that those same stormtroopers couldn't hit the broad side of a barn when they are in a firefight.

Some guy ten times nerdier than Steven Hawking actually compared Stormtroopers in the movies to real-life police officers and found the Stormtroopers to be far more accurate.

Turns out it's hard to hit moving objects with a gun.

I think because deep down, the storm troopers arn't a bad lot. It's one thing to shoot a Jawa with it's dirty little robe, and shifty glowing space-jew eyes. It's another thing to shoot a young Harrison Ford in his handsome rugged face. I think they missed on purpose. They can't *not* shoot. Vader would notice that, and probably make them scrub garbage pits for a week. So they have to make it look like they are trying. So they shoot at bulk heads and catwalks and are actualy quite good marksmen as they can aim their shots close enough to look like they are trying to kill without actually injuring someone.

Especially if you can't aim because you are firing from the hip with a restrictive helmet on.

Then again, if they had some kind of HUD arrangement inside that helmet, there really is no excuse.

Funny thing, sometimes they are, sometimes they're not. In the initial takeover of the Tantive IV, they do a pretty good job of cleaning up the rebels.

What, you mean those firefights where they were chasing after a bunch of people who it was really, really, important not to shoot; because if they did shoot them then Darth Vader's plan to let Princess Leia escape and lead the empire to the rebel base would be totally farked?

All in all, I think they did a great job, considering they were shooting weapons which ricochet a lot, in really enclosed spaces, while being shot at and without ever scoring even an accidental hit.

Or am I still the only person whose version of Stat Wars includes the bit where Tarkin and Vader discussed that exact plan?

... and before you bring up the end of Jedi as some kind of counterpoint, how many times have you won a fight with an Ewok?

It's related to the Conservation of Ninjitsu and the Principle of Evil Marksmanship.  But more study is needed.

Leia was also perfectly aware of the plan the entire time (or, at least, by the time they fled the station and were chased by a whopping four TIE Fighters)

...and instead of arranging for a dead-drop at some Alderaanean embassy, or beaming the Death Star plans to another friendly ship and then leading the Empire on a pointless goose chase, she told Han where the base was and he took them to it.

Either way you cut it, something doesn't quite add up (without acknowledging that the film's pacing demanded the final battle at that point, and the final battle demanded that the rebels bust the planetbuster or else it busts their planet).

I guess they had Leia detect and repeat the trick just so the audience heard it twice, but didn't then mind having the characters do nothing to throw off the trail. It would have been perfectly fine for the characters to have been fooled by it - Luke and Leia are young and potentially oblivious, Han thinks he's hot stuff and blasted out of it fair and square - but at least one wasn't.

I am indeed fluent in over six million forms of communication and, yes, sadly none of them include how to talk to girls.

... but really, thousands of Star Wars fans online, who can quote you damn near every line of dialogue and hardly one of them can follow a simple plot. I almost understand why Lucas spent so little effort on the story for the prequels.

I can't forgive it, but I can understand.

Laugh all you want but- "Sources said that the Pakistani soldiers beheaded one of the two soldiers and decamped with weapons of both the jawans. "

You're right.  I suppose you could fix the problem by assuming/stating that Leia figured it out but too late for them to use any of the methods you suggest (beaming the plans, dead-drop, whatever).  It would be "too late" if their final destination were already known.  Adding a line of dialogue to the effect "Too bad they already know we're headed to the Yavin system" might be enough.

Wookieepedia says that it is spelled "utinni" and it does mean "Come here!" but it also means "Pay attention" or "look over here."  It's also a battle cry.  So it's either a very versatile word that's hard to translate into Basic, err, English, or nobody was too worried about what the gibberish meant when they wrote the script.

Mayne "utinni" is to Jawaese what "che" was to Argentinian Spanish in Che Guevara's time.

all it really means is that at one point, I played Decipher's star wars card game and read the rule book.
utinni effects were a class of card that lasted until a target reached the location of the card.

it was the mid 90s, and I was a bored middle school kid.
