Wired brilliantly dissects How Vader Lost the Battle of Hoth:
The defenses the Alliance constructed on Hoth could not be more favorable to Vader if the villain constructed them himself. The single Rebel base (!) is defended by a few artillery pieces on its north slope, protecting its main power generator. An ion cannon is its main anti-aircraft/spacecraft defense. Its outermost perimeter defense is an energy shield that can deflect Imperial laser bombardment. But the shield has two huge flaws: It canít stop an Imperial landing force from entering the atmosphere, and it can only open in a discrete place for a limited time so the Rebelsí Ion Cannon can protect an evacuation. In essence, the Rebels built a shield that canít keep an invader out and complicates their own escape.
Do Yavin next? Please?
