Yeah its lame it returns to Tatooine, and other than Endor their isn’t anything new. George always planned a bunch of different locales in the OT but because of the budget their was very few. We never got to see Alderaan, even Imperial Center aka Coruscant wasn’t added until the Special Edition.

What the OT did well was the used universe or worldizing. What Donner called Verisimilitude.

The prequels looked like a videogame. And the Disney movies are far too perfect looking and digital, even rogue one which comes the closest isn’t as gritty looking as it should have been.

The only places that seem kind of believable are Jakku and Ach-To in the sequels.
