Aside from Enterprise, before shields were invented, Trek technology has generally portrayed the hull as having the resistance of wet paper when hit with full power weaponry. Undiscovered Country showed a good example, because one single torpedo went through the entirety of the saucer with no signs of being slowed down once the Enterprise's shields went down. Therefore, it really doesn't matter where you put the bridge, because once the shields go down you're equally vulnerable regardless of where exactly the bridge is.
