This really does seem to be the common theme in this thread, doesn't it? A complete lack of compelling characters beyond the big three. We all get that this is science fiction, but our willing suspension of disbelief only goes so far. Han, Luke, and Leia should be thinking about retirement, not running around the Galaxy in their golden years to put an end to yet another Big Bad that has the power to destroy everything in its path. At the very least, the saving of the Galaxy every other Tuesday probably should be delegated to someone else at this point. Nearly forty years since Return of the Jedi and there isn't at least one Jedi or military officer capable of putting on the hero costume?
