Advanced Jedi Training Droid 6(Talk to my master) 00:00, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
I was mulling things over, and I noticed a slight issue on the Force Disturbances.
So, generally, if Force disturbances happen, it generally entails a concentrated amount of mass deaths that would be impacted via the Force (like with the destruction of Alderaan) or with sensing a very powerful force user (eg, the Emperor sensing Luke during the Battle of Hoth), why is it that there didn't seem to be any disturbances in the Force when Luke blew up the Death Star, or when the Death Star II was blown apart? Or heck, why there wasn't even a turmor of that when the Droid Control Ship detonated, whether among Maul or among Obi-Wan? I would have expected at least a slight discomfort from them with those events given how destructive those acts were (not to mention in The Force Awakens, Leia apparently felt a disturbance just from Han being killed by Kylo Ren).

Personally, I feel like the events you mentioned just never gave viewers the opportunity to see every character's reaction on screen. With the destruction of Alderaan and Palpatine sensing Luke, I feel like those both directly related to the Skywalker family and the Force. The destruction of Alderaan not only resulted in the loss of Bail Organa, an ally to the Jedi, but also created a lot of inevitable anger within Leia that could have triggered some sort of Force connection. On Hoth, Luke used the Force for the first time by retrieving his lightsaber using the Force. I feel like that is the most logical explanation. However, a more realistic explanation is simply that the destruction of both Death Stars and the Droid Control Ship were at the climaxes of their respective films, and it wouldn't make sense for a character to sense the outcome of the event on screen ahead of time; for the sake of entertainment and leaving the audience in suspense, that's probably why they did it. Hope that helps! Adele Addict(talk) 23:53, March 2, 2017 (UTC)
