Yes but at the end of ep. III I remember Obi-wan telling a soldier to wipe both C-3PO's and R2-D2's memories, so wouldn't that clear any codes on him?

No... Bail Organa told one of his people (Captain Antilles, probably) to wipe the protocol droid's memory, ie, C-3PO. R2-D2 wasn't mentioned in that exchange at all, probably because they figured R2 could keep his trap shut (and in any case, he'd need a translator, a viewscreen to plug into, or someone like Anakin or Luke that can get the gist of what he's trying to communicate in order to blab)

Maybe R2 had some kind of hacking device software programmed into him in his days with the republic, and maybe the Empire didn't protect against old hacking software from the old institution. Pretty dumb theory but lol.

Oh yeah, sorry about that. anyway, I believe most people in star Wars know what R2 is saying. Anyone with the least amount of tech ability in Star Wars seems to know what he is saying, so he wouldn't need a translator.

Yeah I was watching the Robot chicken Star Wars and I absolutely agree.

Dr. Ball: [Padme's death scene in Revenge of the Sith] She's "lost the will to live"? What is your degree in poetry? You sorry bunch of hippies! For God' sake, don't use the billions of dollars of medical equipment around us! Why don't we just get down on our knees and pray!?!

Unlikely. Very unlikely.

Dear Vader
I wish to issue a security ticket for an illegal intrusion on our DS network.
At 12:01 an illegal intrusion was detected. It is still unknown at this time if any of our personal details have been compromised. The severity of this attack will be given the highest priority and Ive already despatched a highly qualified tech analysis team to investigate the matter.
It wouldbe advisable however to change your personal banking details in the event access to such uncrypted information has been accessed.

For further details please quote ref 103945: DS IT HELPDESK.

I hate to say it, but its very obvious that this guy doesn't know much about Star Wars.

Well, compared to the people on this forum, anyway.

Considering R2 was used to store the plans for the deathstar it is very possible they came with the codes he needed to access certain systems,

Darth Vader has a password that overrides everything in the Empire. R2's memory was never wiped. R2-D2 knows Darth Vader is Anakin and knows that he always uses the same password: Padme.
Anakin never was too bright.

also what seems unlikely is that they would leave the hole that would destroy the death star absolutely unprotected. I am sure someone would have noticed that could be a problem. To spend all that time and money on a weapon to be destroyed by a well placed shot. Major design flaw.
Not unusual in ships. Big ships can be sunk by one or two well placed torpedo's.
The biggest problem with the Graf Spee was finding it. After it was cornered the Germans sank her themselves. It wasn't even combat that sunk her, but false information.
During WWI many British ships were destroyed because German shells ignited gunpowder. One (un)lucky shell and down went the ship. Turns out the powder was being stored in the wrong place.
All it took to sink the Titanic was one iceberg.
