This should have been one of the greatest moments in the history of awesome. Instead it'll go down as one of the most poorly executed.
After wanting to put my controller through a wall, I figured out that you have to completely disregard what the on screen stick display is showing you. Just think of the Star Destroyer as a giant arrowhead. You want the arrowhead pointing STRAIGHT at you. Just do it that way and you'll ht the green patches in no time and be able to pul her down.
God this was awful. A level of awfulness were at least a ten percent score reduction is required for it.
