No Force Ghosts in Final Fight

The Rise of Skywalker was a film that was, for the most part, loved by fans but hated by critics. It was an action-packed finale filled with all kinds of new Jedi and Force lore along with the return of Emperor Palpatine. The film had to tell its own story while putting a bow on the entire sagan. It mostly accomplished that, but the final battle with Darth Sidious will never sit well for me, as I feel there was a huge opportunity missed.

Darth Sidious is able to use the Dark Side of the Force and transfer his essence to a clone body after Vader tosses him down that shaft of the second Death Star. So to destroy him Rey just uses her two lightsabers to send force lighting back on him? That was an odd decision to make especially after Rey just reaches out and hears the voices of many fallen Jedi throughout the Star Wars saga.

To truly vanquish the evilest entity to ever roam the galaxy a massive amount of light side Force energy would need to be used. It would’ve made more sense to not just hear these fallen Jedi but actually see their Force ghosts appear. Seeing Yoda, Mace Windu, Qui Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan, Luke, Leia, and especially Anakin would’ve been a great climax to the saga that could’ve tied all nine episodes together. They all could have reached out with the Force and along with Rey and Ben, been enough to extinguish the Dark Side evil that was Sidious. They could have stolen a moment from the Dark Empire comic and spoken the words of Yoda about being luminous beings as they used the Force on Palpatine.

That would’ve been the climactic ending that the Star Wars saga deserved. While it was cool to hear the voices of the Force ghosts, it was a major blown opportunity to not see their luminous faces and actually be used in the defeat of Darth Sidious who in a way was responsible for many of their deaths.
