yeah. for me it goes back to when I was a kid and Star Wars was all that existed and the rebels vs the empire stuff was the most exciting element. still can't get enough of that part of the Star Wars universe.

diego luna was good in the movie but they should ease up on some of the moral ambiguity surrounding the character and where the rebellion is at in that time period. dude murders some informant without hesitating and is fine with carrying out a political assassination ordered by rebel leadership in the movie and it's uncomfortable as hell and feels really wrong.

Cosigned. Hated this and thought it had no place in a world filled with pretty cut and dry goodies and baddies. This moral grey area is the kinda nonsense they’re always fighting against. TLJ touches on this a lot i think, and is a lot of what Rose’s character corrects.

i...disagree. especially since part of Rogue One's mission was the dirty up the universe a bit, add grit and whatnot.

that moment where he has to kill his informant informs his character every bit as much as han shooting first i think

like, i don't wanna watch a Bothan being tortured to death or anything, but those moments in RO really added a sense of danger and tension to the world.

and it's something RO explored in other characters, too - the moral or societal grey areas they exist in. is Saw Gerrera just a nutso extremist or do his tactics add value to the Rebellion? Chirrut has clearly tapped into the Force, but he's not quite a Jedi. Galen's an imperial officer but an unwilling and sympathetic one. K-2SO is a droid who is neither obedient or willing to defer to humans, something we haven't really seen in a droid before. etc. etc.

If they turn DIego into Dexter, then it's a problem, but yeah, within the context of Rogue One, I was fine with his character.

Star Wars needs its optimism, I agree, but even the ST has characters questioning the right thing to do.

I mean in some ways you can even draw a line from Leia being in the Rebel Alliance and a Senator, to a Senator in the New Republic, to once again leaving politics and becoming a full-time General in the Resistance.

yeah and it wasn't glossed over. he even mentions that he's done some awful things for the rebellion and didn't want to feel like it was for nothing.

"We've all done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion. Spies, saboteurs, assassins. Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion. And every time I walked away from something I wanted to forget, I told myself it was for a cause that I believed in. A cause that was worth it. Without that, we're lost. Everything we've done would have been for nothing. I couldn't face myself if I gave up now. None of us could."
