Some sort of plague.

The plague turned them fuzzy, made them small and teddy-bear-esque. Hence, Ewoks were born. It also explains how Ewoks were able to take down Imperial troops without any decent tech.

Then those damn rebels just had to explodify a high-mass object in a low orbit, causing debris and meteor strikes to wipe them out a second time.

Except that the Forest Moon had its own shield.

Remember that in order to land, Han had to request that the "planetary shield" be lowered. And given that the Death Star's destruction didn't result in any large chunks flying off, any bits that managed to avoid being vaporized in the explosion would likely be few and small enough that the shield would hold.
