They were shooting at Movie Heroes while being shot at by Movie Heroes. So, you get Stormtroopers in elite armor dropping like flies while failing to drop any heroes at all even though their targets are unarmored and, "no one is more precise", then the Stormtroopers.

From the description of more advanced versions being less cumbersome and easier to use, I could see the low tech vacc suits (TL8 vs the awkward suits we have today?), HE vacc suits, and other early versions of rigid armors having similar disadvantages.
