I picked up the new and revised Essential Guide to Characters for Star Wars a little while back and it says that Bevel Lemelisk began his career in the Old Republic when he helped the Geonosians design their attack craft. So the fighters you see the Geonosians using in AOTC were designed by Lemelisk. This I find perfectly ties the EU together without a plot hole concerning the Death Star. When Poggle the Lesser refers to the weapon they are planning to build, he is true because Geonosis is the perfect planet to contribute the raw resources needed to build such a large Battle station.
With the resource rich asteroid belt surrounding their planet and the emense material factories within Geonosis, and Lemelisk, also having previously worked for the Geonosians, likely brought them on as the one of the main manufacturers for the parts and armor used for the Death Star.
