But if they wanted to preserve their own lives, couldn’t they just send droids to lightspeed ram ships? Droids have already been established as being intelligent enough to pilot ships on their own, so why couldn’t they just send unmanned lightspeed missiles to blow up whatever threat was in their way?
Why don’t they use droid for all space combat? and ground combat for that matter? Why do any humans ever have to be involved? Star Wars defeated with facts and logic.
As for introducing Palpatine, Jake, I’m gonna be honest, that’s a really dumb idea. His introduction fits perfectly as a cliffhanger ending to TLJ. Leave it at that.
I like this placement for Vader’s Castle, but that’s purely for shot composition. Are there any other shots where it’d be visible?

I feel pretty settled about the level and method of including DOTF in the duel. It’s noticeable but subtle, brief, and leads into existing music after a gap with no score.
Could you post a link to it? I think Battle of the Heroes would be more fitting to emphasize the water/lava parallel.
In terms of music, while I do agree we shouldn’t add it purely for the sake of filling gaps, I think that as a finale this film ought to have lots of musical callbacks. The Original music has been aped to death but we need some good Prequel sprinklings in there.
