I mean, I'm not sure what continuity issues you have in TLJ; TFA's continuity issues are minimal. It's mostly Rogue One, Solo, and ROS that actually have lore/continuity problems.

I'm a big fan of the Emperor as a character, but I think they should have just left him alone after KOTET finale. And bringing back all those dead characters like Revan, The Exile and Darth Marr just felt cringy to me.

I thought it was fitting, even if undermines SOR's ending a little bit as I interpret it as Revan willing to let go of his obsession and passing the torch to you (though to devil's advocate my own point passing down the torch doesn't mean doing nothing I guess), having Meetra in the game again was nice even if it was brief plus I really like her new model in comparison to the old one since her robes look far more like a KOTOR II Jedi robes. Even if her hair is still white which makes 0 sense, but hey I'll call it a win they remembered she even existed.

I actually agree here. They have a proper reason to bring him back one last time, unlike TROS. With all the identities he assumed along the centuries and all the characters he came across, his last appearance in KOTET left a lot to be desired, since it was really only a send-off to Valkorion, not Vitiate, the Sith Emperor side of the character and especially not Tenebrae. This seems to be a good way of tying up all the loose ends and doing a proper send-off to the character as a whole.

I personally liked how they ended Vitiate here more than KoTET (which I felt was rushed). They still shouldn't have brought him back, but at least what was there was decent. I think that characters such as Revan, Meetra, Kira, Scourge, etc should've had some level of help in regards to dealing with him in KoTET. Btw TRoS is a rehash of Dark Empire, which go the idea to bring Palpatine back from George Lucas (if you look at interviews from Tom Veitch, he discusses how the original plan was for someone pretending to be Darth Vader, which George vetoed and suggested bringing Palpatine back instead). https://www.starwarsunderworld.com/2...riter-tom.html

The Force Awakens suffered because people chastised the prequels. Hoping not to make a movie fans would say Sucked Donkey, in their attempt to make the movie Star Wars they remade Star Wars with NotTattooine, NotBlowingUpAlderaan, and NotDeathStar. They made a film that Sucked Donkey. The Last Jedi was all about political propaganda. Real world politics, and only one acceptable point of view, was all that mattered. Preach to the audience. It was nothing about Star Wars. It Sucked Donkey. The Rise of Skywalker was a latch ditch effort to fix the mess that was made. The return of Palpatine was to initiate nostalgia and try to link all the films together. They had to band-aid Snoke to give him relevance. The politics was removed. Remaking what was done before removed. It Sucked Donkey less but still sucked because it's linked to the previous two films.

DIsney needs to abandon the sequel storyline. They can redo the sequels and recast Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia. There will be some fan grumbling, but promise and succeed on making a good film it will work. Fans are ok with recasting given the reality of real life status of the original actors. They don't even have to be the main characters. Leia can be Chancellor of the New Republic, Luke the Jedi Master of a new Jedi Council, and Han a General in the Army of the New Republic. Alternatively, create a new story set hundreds if not thousands of years later. The Republic and Jedi reformed with a new threat emerging. There can be a superweapon, but blowing up a planet or star won't do. It can be biological where it kills the population leaving the planet intact for the evil invaders to take over. To make it hurt it's used on Tattooine, Kashyyk, or Naboo.
