I think, though, the explanation may be that they don't learn about the rebels' whereabouts in the comfort of their home or even a halfway decent fleet base, heck, not even the conceptually strange space station, but instead while aimlessly skimming around the universe in their fleet. Maybe they really didn't see that snow thing coming. Oh, yes, they should have thought about the chance of that... yea, well, we are talking about people who build a perfectly straight, unprotected ventilation shaft that has not even a grill to the most vulnerable part of their giant space station on behalf of their believe that the chance of that getting hit is small.
Or, more likely, Lucas never thought that through that much.
