Naturally, there are major spoilers here.

The conventional wisdom is that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but it seems like there are no straight lines in Star Wars. Though many of the laws of physics and mortals don’t apply in Star Wars, Murphy’s Law does, and that’s really at the heart of the new Marvel Comics event, War of the Bounty Hunters.
