Irksome, befuddling, or just plain what the hell thing in the Star Wars movies?

Not many just the following:

1: A democratically elected monarch that is a fourteen year old girl in the midst of puberty?

2: When they escape Naboo & run the blockade & only one ship is shooting at them?

3: Gui-Gon, Obi-Wan, & Padme insist on taking Jar Jar Binks around with them everywhere, yet are willing to leave behind more competent & skilled people?

4: Having Padme clean R2-D2?

5: Anakin Skywalker & his mother are slaves on planet run by brutal intergalatic mob bosses who place explosives in slaves. Yet anakin & his mother have a multiple room dwelling?

6: Watoo is described as greedy & cruel, yet Anakin has the parts to assemble a fully working droid?

7: The planet they live on is described as being a place of last resort, where desperate people hideout; yet Anakin assembles a working speeder that sits out in the open for months that isn't stripped for parts or stolen outright?

8: Darth Mauls death scene?

9: Why would anyone listen to some mystery hologram of some random guy you've never met, & launch a fullscale military invasion of a planet because he says so?

10: Who would design a ship that allows you to fly right into the hanger bay, pull up to critical engine parts, hit it with a couple bits of light ordnance, & then the whole ship explodes?

11: Why does an entire fleet of ships leave when the entire situation is still in flux, & the treaty being signed is so important?

12: If the treaty is so important why is Padme sent to away from the palace?

13: Where did all the starships, drop ships, tanks, & various other military hardware they used in Attack of the Clones come from, if they were still debating the creation of a military?

14: Who was bankrolling the creation of an entire army & all their hardware, & yet was still able to hide it from everyone for ten years?

15: How does Yoda leave Coruscant, & mobolize an entire army on Kamino, & then launch a corodinated assault on Geonosis; just minutes after Mace Windu & the other Jedi arrive from Coruscant?

16: How does a strong willed & principled woman who always seeks the peaceful resolution to any situation, dismiss a homocidal rampage with "to be angry, is to be human"?

17: Having that strong willed & principled woman then marry said mass murderer after knowing him for a few weeks, because of lines like "You are in my very soul tormenting me"?

18: & then having that strong willed woman just die, because "she has lost the will to live"; even though she just gave birth to twins who need her, & she believes there is still goood in Anakin?

19: Leia remembers her "real mother", yet Luke doesn't, even though she dies five minutes after giving birth to both of them?

20: Obi-Wan Kenobi doesn't know R2-D2 or C3-PO?

21: Pretty much every line Obi-Wan Kenobi says in A New Hope is retconed thanks to the movies that come after?

(SHRUG) Not to many things all & all. Just most things involving the prequels or the connections between the originals & the prequels.
Query: May I terminate the Meatbag now Master?

In Episode IV when Luke is cleaning the droids and R2 begins playing Leia's message Luke asks who she is.

C3PO says he basiccally doesn't know, she was a passenger on the ship they were on.

But at the start of the movie he says to RD D2 "there will be no escape for the princess this time."

So he was either lying to Luke or they should have rewrote some lines.

In-universe, he was mauled by a wampa at the beginning of V.

In reality, Mark Hamill was in a car accident.

Ok, WHY did they have to fly all the way down that damn trench when they could have launched a guided bomb from directly above the exhaust port on the Death Star and saved quite a few lives instead of flying down that trench and acting as target practice for Vader and his homies?

Perhaps the bomb would've been spotted and destroyed by the Death Star's defenses before it even managed to reach the Death Star itself?

Or better yet, launch Proton Torpedoes from above instead of at a dumb angle and having to use the Force to push them into the exhaust port?
