See the thing is the way the climax is structured I can’t figure out a way to pull off the scene where Rey passes Ben the lightsaber without the ritual. The scene is built around the tension of Rey killing Palpatine to fulfill his plan (not that it ever seemed like it was actually gonna happen, but regardless there’s a sense she is actually in danger). Without the ritual, you just have Rey awkwardly standing there when she could attack Palpatine at any moment. I guess if one could frame this as reluctance to start the inevitable fight based on the fear Palpatine will be strong for her, maybe it could work.
