The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

The character archetypes being used for their clash were incredibly simplistic, I’m not sure what there is to argue about. People feel frustrated because that’s the point, you’re only seeing his perspective. Whether Poe actually learns anything on the other hand, who can say. TROS threw out that development and he doesn’t really lead anyone or do anything important.

The plot of Rogue One should have been that Galen Erso secretly recorded every detail about the station just in case someone could analyse it later, not that it had a built in flaw that anyone loyal to the project would report intermediately. Especially when the flaw itself is just the reactor. I’m pretty sure any machine using a volatile energy source in SW has that flaw.

Yoda and Palpatine NEVER should have been given lightsabers.

While I agree with the thread title, I can’t deny the fact that the Yoda vs Palpatine duel in RotS is a guilty pleasure of mine! 😛

That being said, I absolutely hated the Yoda vs Dooku duel in AotC, and the Palpatine vs Windu/Council duel in RotS.

The Council duel is hilariously bad.

Han Shoots First - Any valid reason to not have Han shoot first?

If you were trying to create a radical fan edit of the OT where Han turns out to be Force sensitive, then you could use him dodging Greedo’s shot as an early clue to his Jedi-like reflexes. Of course, Han having the Force is the only way I can make sense of his point-blank dodge to begin with, cause there’s no way a non-Force user could dodge like that.

With a CGI double Han could flip the table and deflect the blast. Or you’d just have to make him stop the blaster bolt in mid-air just like his son, then you’d have reached the nadir of this sequence’s potential.

It depends on whether you think these characters ever become more than simple narrative roadblocks. Luke’s personal arc aside the others are gone in TROS (Holdo for real and Rose being left for dead by the writers) which means they don’t get further development. A trilogy is a long format that has room to flesh out certain things, but many here have been left almost bare.
