So, you know how the Mandalorians made a blockade of planets in TOR? And how the Trade Feds made a blockade around Naboo? And like blockades in between planets? How could they actually blockade the entire place?! Couldn't the enemy or someone just like...slip past or something in between the ships? Cause a distance between planets is a long distance.
Alternatively, the enemy could simply mavuever their ships to a slightly higher or lower plane in the universe and slip past underneath or over the blockade.

You've identified a sci-fi trope that Star Wars is often guilty of. Indeed, someone could go around the blockades they show. I think a plausible explanation is that they blockade the easiest routes (direct lines between two planets, blocking an important hyperlane, blockading where all the big spaceports are, etc.) I imagine that, in the case of blockading Naboo, droid starfighters could react and shoot down someone approaching Naboo from another angle.
