I agree I didn’t really care for the BB-8 antics in this movie. In TFA, he was perfect. In this movie, he was prequel R2-D2. I immediately got worried in the opening fight when he was using his little robot fingers to plug up the short circuits in the X-Wing. And the AT-ST thing was stupid as well, and the suggested alteration would have probably helped significantly. But I actually didn’t mind the coin stuff as much. As I told other people, that was right on the line for me.
