Yeah, it would require some restructuring, but it could possibly work. Just curious if people have thought about it already.
I’ve seen an edit that made it work kinda well, where she and Ben both survive and then they share an awkwardly composited hug. The problem is that so much of the movie’s last act requires Leia to be in a coma, and I don’t know how we could communicate her waking up.
Let’s put her in a coma for two whole movies!
