Just to throw in one thing I didn't see mentioned about the galaxy shot (please forgive me if I missed it)... is there a reason they would be traveling intergalactically at that (or any) point in the story? Presumably that's their galaxy (far, far away) and not some other galaxy, right? I can't imagine there's a neighboring galaxy that close, or we would have seen it in countless shots throughout the trilogy. How long would it take a ship, at Star Wars speeds, to get that far outside the galaxy? And what would be the point?
Again, sorry if this has been covered. I try to read every post, but I'm trying to have a life as well. ;)
