You’re not meant to stop and think and try to make sense of it all Hal 😉
You jest, but it’s true. That’s the way Star Wars has always been. It’s emotional, not logical. None of it makes any sense logically and if you think about the viability of certain plot elements in those terms, it falls apart. So no, you’re not meant to make sense of it all.
That’s not the way it used to be. The OT makes sense, every action is justified. The bad storytelling of the prequels and sequels have desensitized people to what Star Wars used to be.
And also, if the emotional heights of TROS are Chewie getting a medal and “Rey Skywalker,” then I prefer the story to at least make sense.
