How so? Most bullets in real warfare don't hit their mark due to countless factors, either. It has nothing to do with poor marksmanship or bad luck.

Well in real life probably about 98% of the ammo is shot as covering fire at walls and possible enemy locations, well and fucking around. In Star Wars they just seemed to be more accurate...

Well, it is a movie, and a very pulp fiction style space opera movie at that. Protracted firefights from behind cover just aren't in the style for the kind of fiction Star Wars originally fell under. Nowadays, yeah, there's more of an emphasis on slightly more realistic and grittier warfare in Star Wars media, but armor is also more effective. Although, hell, even in Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader's armor deflected a blow from Luke's lightsaber. Granted, it still hurt, but it didn't maim or kill him.

they don't die in one hit. hell in the clone wars, you can see multiple clones through out the show take multiple hits to the armor and they'll still keep going.

The armor significantly reduced damage to the wearer from a blaster bolt, but it could be completely penetrated by a more powerful cannon blast. The most obvious function of the armor was protection against weapons fire and battlefield hazards. The armor, and the body glove worn beneath, were designed to disperse the energy of a blaster bolt and insulate the wearer, lessening injury. Although standard armor lacked the durability to make the wearer immune to cannon fire, it could partially deflect or disperse energy from low, medium, and high-energy blaster bolts; though the wearer may be incapacitated, survival would allow the trooper to receive advanced medical treatment that may return him to service. It also deflected stun beams, and served as excellent protection against explosions and shrapnel, thereby drastically reducing the effective casualty radius of fragmentation weapons used against troops wearing such armor.

I never watched the Clone Wars, so I apologize and they look pretty dead when they get hit in the movies, but as you said they're probably incapacitated. Thanks for the lore or w.e.

Environmental hazards, shrapnel, non-lightsaber melee weapons, and glancing blows from blasters that would maim or cripple you for life if you didn't have the armor. Wouldn't you rather your shoulder guard melted instead of your ACTUAL SHOULDER?

Yeah I suppose, but then the person you're fighting is a terrible shot, or just very unlucky.
