Just want to point out that Obi-Wan cannot be the father. The Force Awakens takes place 30 years after Return of the Jedi and Rey is less than 30 years old.

Five things I like:

  1. Rey
  2. Special effects
  3. Kylo Ren is Han & Leia's son
  4. Callbacks to the original films
  5. The potential for future films

Five things I don't like:

  1. The way Han died
  2. How closely the plot mirrored a New Hope. They can't keep upping every thing (this film did not need a superweapon 100 times the size of the Death Star, or a superweapon at all)
  3. How proficient both Rey/Finn were with a lightsaber against Ren
  4. All the unanswered questions regarding the formation of the First Order and why the "Resistance" is such a small group (shouldn't the Republic have some sort of military force)
  5. It was missing some of Lucas' small touches that make Star Wars what it is... While a very good film, it feels like a step-child to the other films given the fact that Lucas was not involved

One observation that is neither good or bad. It is almost as if they had a checklist of everything they needed to be overly politically correct. I wish that wasn't a driving force behind everything in today's culture.

As an 11 year old, I thought Phantom Menace was the greatest thing ever. Without Phantom Menace, I would not be a huge Star Wars fan. The prequels get a lot of hate, but I'm fairly confident that any Star Wars fan in the 20-30 age demographic can attribute it to the prequels... I don't remember any of my 11 year old friends having a problem with the acting, Jar Jar Binks or pod racing. As an adult, I can see a lot of flaws in the prequels that rightfully warranted criticism, but I would argue that the targeted audience for the prequels was not adults. The prequels created a new generation of fans and moved a lot of merchandise.

You could make the same argument for the Clone Wars series. I have never had any interest in watching the cartoon, but recognize I am not the target audience.

Thoughts?

As a big Star Wars fan, I think it's fantastic. I agree with DarkbeatDK that it might not resonate with non-Star Wars fans.

Not to be greedy, as this game will keep me occupied for quite some time, I already cannot wait for the next Star Wars game. The well has been dry too long!

Does anyone want to knock out some Taken King missions tonight? I'm looking for help on all the DLC story missions (including the Dark Below and House of Wolves).
