What happens when a Stormtrooper shoots his shot? He misses
If the Stormtroopers had better aim, many of the Star Wars movies would have ended in 30 seconds or less. Sadly, nobody felt the need to train any of the Stormtroopers, even though these “elite” marines could have saved the Empire a lot of trouble. Good going, Emperor Palpatine.
We understand that they couldn’t hit 100% of their shots, otherwise there would have never been a need for Star Wars. What disappoints us the most is that in the original trilogy, Obi-Wan and others speak of the Stormtroopers as being a scary force, but moments later, we realize they couldn’t hit the side of a barn with a nuclear weapon.
