I was watching through the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, and I got to the episode where General Grievous has to get past an asteroid belt to attack a Republic fleet on the other side. The first thing he states is that he can not go over the asteroid belt due to the fact that the weak side, or the underbelly would be exposed. So, he gets the idea to go through it, which results in his ships getting demolished by the "trap" the republic set up.
BUT, why did he choose to go through them?
From my point of view, attacking from either the bottom (Best option because it would mean the enemy's weak point - their bottom side - would be above), or from above the belt while upside down would be much smarter.
Why did General Grievous choose to go through the belt and not beneath or above (but upside down) it?
