Yes both were built by the same manufacturer of the Empire. The Imperial Department of Military Research.

Right, the Death Star was perfectly safe from harm unless there was a force sensitive(which Luke was and him doing that feat was rather remarkable considering he had minimal training up to that point). The Rebel Leaders didn't know this, and figured the targeting computers would be able to hit the mark.

Well obviously some of the inhabitants survived (since both jawas and tusken raiders are related to the original inhabitants) meaning some parts of the planet must have been left intact. As for the rest, time and nature has a way of changing things. The glass would erode and im sure meteorites helped speed that along.
The inhabitants adapted to the new enviroment and evolved into jawas and tusken raiders.
Apparantly I have multiple accounts. And apparantly I argue with myself on those accounts.

If the 'Emperor' is basically a 'God' in TOR. Why does the Empire lose the war?!

So....assuming Luke hadn't hit the exhaust port, and lets say Porkins had actually taken the winning shot, you think the targeting computers would have changed the trajectory of the torpedo's at a similar moment that Luke's had? I guess that's plausible...however unlikely. I guess I just don't understand their angle of attack given the 90 bend.

No because the targeting computer couldn't tell how the torpedo's were suppose to move, only Luke could make that shot via The Force. I suppose the leaders were counting on the torpedo's to home in on the signature that the reactor was giving off sort of like a heat seeking missile. There is also the factor of the shaft, being only 2 meters wide...remember what was said?

"That's impossible even for a computer."

OK...just to be clear on what you're saying - the Rebel Alliance knew of the vulnerability, they knew they needed to shoot 2 torpedo's into a tiny hole, but they were unaware of the exact bend needed - they were making a best guess as to what could stop the Death Star. So the only possible way their plan could have worked (assuming every pilot had taken a shot) was for Luke to guide his down using the Force, making his shot that much more impressive?!

Bah...you edited after I was replying The "heat seeking" could work...

Easy. Maybe the exhaust port had an electro-magnetic seal.
