In the opening sequence the bombers are going to throw bombs on an enemy ship. Since they are in space this won't work. Bombs don't fall down in space. They would need some kind of fire device to fire them down. Every ship, on both sides, has a device for creating artificial gravity ; which would push the bombs "down" through the bomber, and pull them "down" onto the target. In addition, it's possible the bombs have some kind of magnetic properties that would attract them to their target. As evidenced by the ground-troops hearing the star destroyers "Popping" out of hyperspace in the opening scene (they look up when they hear the sound) these ships are within the atmosphere of the planet, and thus are close enough to be within it's gravity well. The bombs 'fall' because they're falling toward the planet beneath them.
