I thought it was great, we gotta remember Luke was a mary sue too, the story telling in this universe has never been great so as long as theres wookies and siths and stuff its gonna be fine.

It was good. Not perfect, but thoroughly enjoyable. There weren't so much "parts I didn't like" as there were "parts that would have been even better if done differently".

Like I said, the movie was really good, but there were just several tiny places where I felt like a little change would have made it even better.

Did no-one else click that the transference of one's soul also points to the very early story of the Inquisitor, when Zash tries to pull that **** on you through an ancient Sith ritual, but eventually is foiled by Khem Val.

Plenty of people mentioned the similarity to SWTOR. (not sure if you actually read the entire thread before posting ? )

p.s. Your post is very close to breaking this: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=973823 ...so you might wanna be more careful.

That's my preamble of how my life has had SW as a longtime part of it.

I didn't mind ROS and found it way way more watchable than TLJ and TFA combined. Rogue One, The Mandalorian, Clone Wars, Rebels animated series definitely 'Get' what Star Wars is and are more authentic. I appreciate that JJ respected the original characters and understand he's not very invested in the lore like Dave Filoni. Of the 3 prequel trilogies ROS is the only one I think I'll rewatch a few times simply for the always amazing Richard E. Grant. 75/100

p.s. thought the Power Ranger was out of place

The plot thickens! Apparently, according to the Visual Dictionary for Rise of Skywalker, the sith cultists are divided into legions. One of these is called The Revan Legion, but there is a more subtle nod to The Old Republic story too: one of the legions is called the Tenebrous Legion. That's awfully close to Tenebrae... I am starting to think more and more there are some purposeful nods to the game 😁.
