From my reading of the rulebook, Angle of Attack counters affect where a Site can attack to and be attacked from. This latter bit is what grabs my attention - why only draw Angle of Attack counters for Sites with 1+ Range? Sites with 0 Range can also be attacked from 1+ range, making AoA counters serve a purpose with them as well and making me think I should draw them for any site in Approach (or Pre-Approach).

Am I missing something?

You are not missing anything. I'm guessing this is a) a holdover from PLD which originally introduced the AoA counters, b) a simplification similar to other Leader series rules, and c) a way to keep the board less cluttered, especially in missions with lots of defending sites.

Of course, nothing is keeping you from doing your own thing and drawing counters for all sites.

Thank you, that's good to know. I think I will draw AoA counters for those sites because.... it just feels less gamey (even if the official rule is in favor of the player).
