Branching off this (and this is not an indictment of the developing meta, it's fine), but things still feel somewhat like this (to me). It's mostly the Rebel beef/alpha, TIE swarms, 5 Yion (and 4 phantoms in Extended)...I feel like there are some definite brick walls I have to approach and figure out how to circumnavigate to be successful. Some, it just doesn't seem feasible to do so, wherein my best hope is to chip off a couple bricks (MOV), then stay away.
The Murray Trial final is a good example of this in play. Matt was the brick wall and Jordan had to figure out how to get around that wall or chip it away to have any hope (outside of 2-die disadvantage on final salvo). Leia actually turns that wall into more of a brick tower, since he can flip everyone around at will.
Again, that's not necessarily a bad thing. It will just lead to a lot of early jockeying for position until one side either gets bored or a mistake is made. May the most patient player win!
