Destroying completely mustn't mean it was completely shredded into subatomic particles, just that it was damaged beyond repair IMO

You're overthinking this. It's just a retcon to get a cool throwback to KOTOR. Worry about something else.

Excuse used for inconsistencies in the writing. Did you copy and paste that from others brought up to Bioware? I've see that before.

Flame me as much as you like, but: It's there, what are you going to do about it? Just DEAL WITH IT.
Copy this signature if you believe Timothy Zahn should take over the Star Wars EU

If a ship is designed for not just war but war in the extreme environments of space I believe it can survive a crash landing. Think about it in space it's either hundreds below zero or hundreds above zero depending on the distance from a sun. All of that heating and cooling would cause havoc in a ship infrastructure of it weren't designed to take it. On top of that it's meant to get the **** beaten outta it. Yes it blew up pretty good, yes fall hundreds of kilometers only to make the hardest landing imaginable. But there is something call suspension of disbelief. Learn to use that or every story will be ruined because it can't happen in real life.

On a side note since it took such a beating I would have appreciate holes in the haul either from colliding with buildings, erosion, or even cannon fire but hey that's just me

Realizing that Shan was no longer aboard the ship, the Sith fleet opened fire on the Endar Spire, completely destroying it."
If Wiki says so it has to be right

The way it explodes (from one big ship to dust in 1 second with no chunks, nothing) tells me it is just a technical limitation. The game is 9 years old, don't be so picky about what you are seeing and don't take it for granted.

This is editorial freedom many script writers take. I can think of many examples in Sci Fi where you see a ship "explode" in space, and then later the wreck is found on a planet. Star Wars is certainly not the first nor will they be the last to use a "plot device" like this
