So is there a canon or fanon reason why the Empire didn't just put one of these bad boys around either of the Death Stars? —Unsigned comment byLastlife0726 (talk • contribs).
Not sure about the first Death Star, but regarding the second Death Star, they did, actually. The Legends article for "planetary shield," at least, describes the shield originating from Endor (the one the Rebels had to take down before they could take that out), as being an "encasing shield."
