In The Force Awakens, after the First Order are alerted to BB-8, Rey, and Finn's presence at the cantina, an aerial bombardment of the compound begins. They also deploy ground troops.
Wouldn't it have been better to not have an aerial bombardment and simply have the troops surround the cantina, keeping as many people as possible bottled up inside it while they searched both the interior and surrounding area for BB-8?
Instead of a surgical extraction, the strategy that they chose seemed to create chaos and even risked destroying BB-8.
Perhaps this was a sign of the inexperience and emotionally-charged state of Kylo Ren, but General Hux seemed to have more direct authority over the deployment of troops and fighters.
So what was the strategy behind these tactics?
