Why aren't there ever safety railings in the Star Wars universe.

Why aren't there ever safety railings in the Star Wars universe. Every fight is above bottomless pits or something dangerous.

    safety railings are dysgenic. if a giant bottomless pit isn't enough to elicit caution, you shouldn't be alive.

        Several hundred years of bottomless pits have instilled an instinctive caution of bottomless pits in the various species of star wars. It's only a problem in the short term, once all the genetic detritus fall into bottomless pits and end their lines, the problem goes away.

    >This reactor is crucial to the function of our planet. It powers everything in our society. Therefore make it an underground complex only accessible by an aircraft hangar. Make it a twisting, multilevel series of long unrailed walkways above perilous heights adjacent to instant death pillars of light and no discernible pattern or direction. Finally, if one were to find their way to a key junction of the facility make sure it is gated by instant kill barriers set to a timer designed to impede access. Also, include a perilous pit(but one you can survive if plot demands) inside this one

          With all of the trade negotiation and political discussion in Ep 1, why wasn't the presence and/or export of this plasma ever mentioned? I've always assumed the blockade was to prevent goods from going TO Naboo, rather than that they were making bank exporting "plasma".

            Sidious and Plagueis orchestrated the Trade Federation blockade of Naboo to create a crisis that would make people feel sympathy for Naboo so that Senator Palpatine could replace Valorum as Chancellor. Valorum was too weak and compromised by scandals to deal with increasing tensions in the Senate, as Palpatine planned.
            Shortly after Palpatine became Chancellor he killed Plagueis, who was celebrating their victory and became drunk, letting his guard down in front of his apprentice. A classic tale of the dangers of hubris and arrogance that come with such power.

              son of a b***h, they didn't mention any of the stuff about Plagueis either

              Maul is such a pushover it ain't funny. I never got why he has fans. Sure, before the film released he looked badass. But once the movie begins? He does nothing. He awkwardly chases them around and only occasionally does anyone even remember he exists because he fails to kill them. The only people afraid of him are the cowardly Asian aliens(who seem more afraid of Sidious to boot). The pretense of being badass is broken the very second he fails to kill absolutely anyone on Tattooine. He doesn't even really get a swing in and crashes his speeder in the process, meaning he probably had to waltz his ass through miles of desert in shame in thick dark robes. After that fluke he shows up too late to change the fate of the Federation(Anakin is guaranteed to get in the starfighter), and then engages in a pointless fight where he also loses to the lesser opponent. This is made even worse in the subsequent additions to the character where he is literally so assblasted he lost that he jobs again and again until he is gracelessly put out of his misery by an old man. What a cuck

              He does pretty good against two Jedi at once, and has a double-sided lightsaber

            Bruh there was already enough babble about space economics in that film, did you really want another exposition dump about the logistics of space plasma or whatever the frick? Whatever it was being traded was just some arbitrary commodity dreamed up for the sake of the plot anyway.

              I'm just saying they could have given a name to the product they were being blockaded for in the first place, and especially because major scenes later on take place where it's being collected or processed or whatever. It would have added some context to the "why are there giant lasers below this palace?" shots. A full explanation of it isn't needed.

                But again, it would just be a reference to some random unexplained thing that they just made up anyway. What difference does putting a name on it make?
                >they're trading "goods"
                reeeeee I'm so confused what kind of goods? My autistic brain demands details!

      Man, how did they frick up the ST so hard... the Prequels take place 20 years before the OT, the ST takes place THIRTY years after Jedi, how the hell is the galaxy still all destroyed and dirty and grungy as it is? Like frick, the idea that Luke with the Jedi and Leia with the Republic accomplished fricking *nothing*. It's kinda depressing lol I remember seeing the Prequels for the first time and thinking that silver Naboo starfighter from Ep. 1 that Qui Gon and co. use to go to Tatooine looked so "futuristic" compared with the OT ships and it showed how Palpatine essentially plunged the galaxy into the "Dark Ages" where that kind of high-tech was lost or repressed. But in comes Disney's sequels and the world is still as fricked, the First Order blows up entire planets killing BILLIONS, nobody cares and at the end of the day all our OG heroes die and a Palpatine wins and steals the Skywalker name... I think I'll stick with the EU thank you very much

        Idk, part of me likes the idea that you can't just fix the Galaxy by blowing up a couple death stars. 25 years of fascist rule has longterm consequences. The Rebellion certainly accomplished a lot in that context.

    Meanwhile, we can't even speak about catwalk railings in the sequels because it literally does not offer any worldbuilding, which is actually a talent given the genre and pedigree.
    Like they could talk or depict just about anything, and it'd immediately become (at least) implicit worldbuilding. But somehow they frick up even that.
