This whole thing is silly. Besides the cost of it. Why build something when we are yet to get out of our solar system. Building and researching the spaceships and fuel sources are more important.
And even if you could build it, wtf would you do with it? What planet would you feel the need to blow up at some point, since we can't get out of the system? It's not like you could turn the superlaser on, say, Iran and just
blow up Iran. "Silly" is putting it mildly.
If they could just
blow up individual starships in RoTJ, then I'm sure we can just
blow up Iran or Canada or something.
Plus think of all the surface area we could sell ad space on. Financial Crisis solved.
