There are tons of bugs, but I don't remeber this being one of them. I usually fly with shields at normal and lasers at full in combat situations. I may take the lasers down to 0 if I need to do some catching up, though. But in any case, you should be able to nail a TIE fighter in a single shot, assuming you have all four guns firing at once, which I always do when engaging TIEs. And make sure your lasers are set to automatic convergence - that helps. But even if you have done none of these things, you should still be able to destroy a TIE fighter in two or three shots.
