Wow, when did this become a nerd discussion? The game doesn't have to be canon. Base shields start with stopping energy weapons, and apparently we can upgrade them to stop solid objects as well.

Besides, if they tried to make shields visible in the OT, it'd probably look as bad as David Lynch's Dune movie. It nearly killed me to watch Picard and Muad'Dib fight with those horrible shield thingies.
