4. Fix the most critical moment in the entire trilogy
For my biggest gripe yet… How could you ruin the most important moment in the entire trilogy The sequel trilogy as a whole might have been forgivable if not for this one unforgivable offense.
When Kylo Ren feels the death of Leia through the Force, he’s forced to make a critical decision about his future. As he is about to have to make this decision of whether or not to choose between good or evil, right or wrong, light and dark, he’s met by a familiar face and someone very important to him.
Oh, wait — what?
Kylo Ren didn’t get the chance to see the Force Ghost of Anakin Skywalker? The man he worshiped as Darth Vader, the one whose mission he wanted to “finish”?
No, instead, the sequel trilogy was ruined in one fell swoop by the return of Han Solo from the dead.
As great as it was to see Harrison Ford playing the role of Han one final time, it made absolutely zero sense. How was it not Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker confronting Kylo Ren in this moment?
How was it not Anakin Skywalker, the one who brings balance to the force, encouraging Ben Solo to come back to the light?
How did they get this wrong?
Instead, they chose Rey, apparently a descendant of Emperor Palpatine (make that one make sense) to hear the voice of Anakin, but why was it her? She was a Palpatine, and Ben Solo had Anakin Skywalker in his blood.
Why was Rey the one that brought back balance and not Ben? Yes, it’s fun that they were some Force Dyad (which caused Finn to be completely disregarded) but this particular moment where Ben Solo has lost absolutely everything should have been the perfect time for him to encounter his beloved grandfather, whom he never met and will never meet as long as this story stays the same.
