I like most all of them, for different reasons.
The “Saga” episodes are the adventures of a blue and white astromech droid, and the meatbags and other droids who are along for the ride. These adventures, like any saga, are entertaining, hit you over the head with big, blunt Important Lessons, and grow more exaggerated with the telling.
Rogue One, Solo, the Clone Wars, and so on shine a light on parts of the galaxy far, far away we’ve never seen before. Since they’re canon, I value them highly because they give me my best chance at seeing how that universe’s creator sees those things, how they interact with the other things we have already seen. It’s fascinating.
Finally, this is all I’ll say: Luke was a Jedi. Luke was a Skywalker. Luke was a Legend. He was also mortal, and it wasn’t the first time he screwed up. Hell, Yoda allowed the Sith to rise. Windu put his faith wrong. Obi Wan was just too passive where Anakin was concerned. Jedi, whether padawan, Knight, or Master, fail.
I’d like to know what made Luke fall to despair earlier on, so that he was so weary and hopeless that the same man who saved the soul of the second most evil man in the galaxy would think killing a young apprentice in his sleep a good idea.
You see, my main problem with the sequels is they started too many years later. Too much happened between Last Jedi and New Hope.
Although, now I think about it, Luke saved that soul AFTER cutting off his hand and driving him to the ground a hair’s breadth from destruction.
