Come to think of it...I don’t think I have either?That's very interesting. I hadn't heard many people with the opinion that TFA put TLJ in a difficult place. I like this thread, it's actually quite informative.
But I almost assumed it was a common thought.
7 introduced characters with no backstory or purpose really...totally mangled the OT characters that Disney refused to believe everyone wanted...
The thing that still sticks with me is the cash grab moves. Why modify the storm trooper armor slightly? Why rename republic and empire?
Simple...not only trying to reinvent the wheel with the reboot...but trying to sucker old guys like me into rebuying the same stuff from hasbro.
Sorry...we have nice parting gifts for you.
