    It's not funny, it's frustrating.

    And also there were multiple control ships which doesn't even make any sense .

    1) Not during the battle apparently. Seriously, there's only one ship in orbit when they return to Naboo.
    2) That is not irony. Irony is a fire truck that is currently on fire.

    Also, please learn to use the edit button. The poor mods must be tired of having to condense your posts all the time.

    Which is a Starship. That random Neimoidian from AOTC speaking about getting the balls reattached to the rings in orbit: "we must get the starships back into space."
    It would be a bot or script that combines the posts.

    There is no irony in the fact that the general battle plan for the space portion of the battle was doomed.
    The double posting thing makes you look bad. It's poor forum etiquette.

    Basic definition of irony: "happening in a way contrary to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this."

    It is ironic. The deflector shield which is meant to ensure the Trade Federation's victory actually helps bring about their defeat. Secondly, the defences that are meant to protect them from trained adult pilots, are breached by some little boy with next to no experience.

    i KNOW FROM lUCAS'S POV it was to prove a point but yeah some people don't get irony or storytelling from our/Lucas's POV...I had a brief talk with him a while ago and i fully side with his reasonings as to why he made the decisions that he did

    How does the shield helps the Federation lose?

    The shields get shut down and the main ship blows up so the federation loses...simple as that .

    The deflector shield is meant to ensure the starship's protection, yet it does nothing to prevent a starfighter from entering the interior of the ship and blowing it up from the inside.

    But the battle itself is just background. Obi Wan and Anakin's actions do not decide whether the republic wins or not. Even more so, the republic is happy to blast the Ivisible Hand from the sky even when Palpatine is still on board. In Episode I each part of the battle has an important role to play into the tactical and story narrative:

    1. the gungans (jar jar) pull the droid army away from the city
    2. the naboo rebels (padmé, panaka and the two jedi) try to infiltrate the city and palace in order to capture the Viceroy so they can force him to shut down the droids and sign a new treaty.
    3. the startfighters (anakin) try to knock out the control ship so that the viceroy cannot summon more troops and the gungan army won't be obliterated
