Yes, that's it.
My points were:
A) SW shields don't seem impressive because we only see them vs SW weapons. Since ST weapons are much less powerful than SW ones, these shields would be *that much more* effective. The same goes for SW armor.
B) The safe crash landing of the Invisible Hand in RotS, given just how damaged it was, vs how injured passengers get when a ST shuttle goes down, (and those are under much better vehicle conditions), demonstrates just how robust SW tech is. The internal damage on the Ent-D at the end of Generations, given the saucer section being, well, whole, is another comparison.
C) The fact that a smuggling vessel can mask lifesigns, even at point-blank range of the DS1, means that jamming/interference tech in SW is extremely powerful and frequently used. The susceptibility of ST transporters to such jamming and interference would make them unlikely to be usable vs SW ships.
D) The instance we saw of Han exploiting a blind spot on an Imperial vessel, (or other such weakpoints in SW tech), means that ST ships/crew are unlikely to be able to pull off the same thing, since ST personnel are not privy to the same knowledge and experience...
