      Giant shields stopped making practical sense once everybody realized how to actually fight in a massive galactic war.
      All it does is give you a big fricking target to shoot at from space ships that are designed to penetrate capital ship shields made from generators the size of buildings. A tiny ass power generator strapped to the back of a dinosaur or even some mobile artillery wouldn't protect shit.

      I appreciate TCW showing why fighting with exposed armies on massive sprawling fields is a moronic idea when even a single space ship could wipe out an entire army with ease.

        If they sent a single one of those naboo fighters to strafe the droids as they formed up it would have saved so many gungan lives, but no. Guess the Brian Blessed gungan was right, they were racist.

        don't forget that the rebels used a giant massive shield to protect echo base

          You're right, giant shields would still have been used to protect large fortified areas that could house giant building sized generators like the one used at echo base. There is a reason that land skirmishes still happened in the clone wars after all.

          The shield + ion cannon (which did a lot of the heavy lifting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kH6Tjly_dK8 ) completely crippled what could have been a simple orbital bombardment.

    I mean 'lost' technology or tech that is unique to one faction is commonplace in Star Wars - we don't see advanced droids in ST, clones are only a Geonosis thing etc. Besides this is not that unrealistic. We have 'lost' the technology of landing people on the moon.
    The Soviet Unions collapse reduced Russian tech level by decades. If someone would nuke Taiwan, we wouldn't know how to make the most advanced chips.

        We kind of did. Yes the knowledge is out there, but it's decentralized, misunderstood. We lost the technological continuity that peaked with us making it to the moon and back, "and back" being the greatest feat in somehow getting human beings back to Earth.

        If you asked NASA right now to do it again they could not. The army of brilliant autistic men who had learned from other brilliant autistic men and furthered their work, is gone. It's replaced with a hodgepodge of merely capable fill-in bodies doing make work .

        It's kind of like Roman art, which peaked at a point, and then started to tangibly regress, the continuity is lost even if the knowledge is recorded somewhere.
