    TEK reacted to Desslok in Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (Eventual Spoilers)   
    In retrospect, knowing the death that was lurking right around the corner, going with Leia instead of Vice Admiral Redshirt would have been the smart way to go, and the most sastifying from story terms. But unfortunatly by the time that sending leia out like that seemed like a good idea, the actress was unavailable for re-shoots. Catch 22.
    That would have been the way to go. Perhaps since Ackbar's voice actor was dead, they were locked into the same problem with Leia? Okay, finding a sound-alike is easier than getting a Princess-alike, but perhaps it wasnt an option?
     
    That would have been a great touch. As Finn was roaring along, I was thinking "Okay, everything else has been topsy-turvey so far. Are they actually going to do this?" Also, while we're rewriting bits - I might have subverted the thone room even more. Save Kylo Ben but turn Rey. How strong and unexpected would that have been?
    Okay, I'll admit that Superleia was one of the WTF moments of the movie. I did not like that bit.

    As you say, there seems a lot of frantic running around, which is fun while we're watching, but as the alcohol wears off, it gets you scratching your head at what they were actually trying to accomplish... There seemed to be a lot of 'we have to go here or this bad thing will happen!'. Over and over again.  Some reviewer made the point that this is the most 'skippable' Star Wars film to miss out in terms of purely understanding the plot.
    I think there were a bunch of missed opportunities.  As much as I love Leia, it would have suited her better to be the one who sacrificed herself rather than Admiral Dangerhair. It felt like Tumblr Woman only really showed up to get redshirted instead of actually important people.  Or how about Ackbar? Better he go out like a boss than defrosting in space like some unwanted frozen fishfinger
    I like Finn too, but it would have had much more impact if he'd been allowed to make that bold sacrifice.  That poor guy never gets any agency, huh?
    How about Phasma? I'm betting she comes back next movie, held together by sticky-tape and cyberware... just to go out in an even more useless fashion. (Note to fans: online petitions insisting they make a rubbish character female doesn't actually mean that the character will no longer be rubbish. You just get a rubbish character played by a female.)
    And I still don't understand what they were trying to tell us with Space-Superman Leia.  I actually asked one of my friends if I'd really seen that bit or if it was just a whisky-induced hallucination...

    See, stuff like this is why I'm happy with my HWK-290
    Sure, they don't often look like much (Especially compared to the snazzier and cuddlier A-wings) but they're reliable, friendly, love a good joke and they know all the best Cantina's in the galaxy. They're the most easy-going ship around and the best friend a pilot could ask for.

    Wow. Even when I disagree with people here, I try to be nice, polite or lightheartedly funny. I'm finding myself at a loss here, astounded by your runaway train of thought and the conviction you put behind it.
    Because that argument is just flawed in ways I can't even begin to describe, as reading it overwhelmed me with a sudden urge to go and lie down.
    Instead, I'll illustrate my point with a picture.

    TEK reacted to SEApocalypse in Typical End of Campaign XP Total?   
    It's actually hard to imagine a 700 xp force user doing much better than a combat optimized 350 xp force user. In with that said, it's hard to imagine that the force users beat something like a gunner/sharpshooter or heavy/modder in efficiency either. True Aim and/or jury rigged reapers are sources of a lot of pain. Now force users seem to have an easier time being jack of all trades as the force dice can offer a lot of flexibility.

    Would love an option so that you could also get them from cross-career (but only appropriate career), meeting all other requirements.
    It's always seemed strange that signature abilities only come from where you start your life, not where it ends up. I guess in real life I'll have to take a signature ability in quality control, which I did for 2 years, rather than the IT I've done for the next 20+.

    Snoke seemed to have a good command of several Force abilities, based on the way he flung Rey around. Kylo was just on to his mind reading tricks.
    Also, the Ahch-To vergence seems very potent. 
    Did anyone else notice the Jedi tomes were stuck in a drawer on the Millennium Falcon at the end of the movie? Or was that just my imagination?

    TEK reacted to Tramp Graphics in Jedi order turning down initiates?   
    Nope. The Great Sith War was not the reason why Jedi were training adults. In fact, the standard practice at the time was for prospective Jedi to be adults before being accepted for training, as a certain level of emotional maturity was expected. Not only that, but all of the major players in said war were already Jedi before the war began, and all had started training as adults; one of them, Nomi Sunrider, was a widow with a young daughter of her own before she began training under Master Thon. In fact, it was the murder of her husband, and the urging of his spirit thereafter that finally convinced her to seek out Thon and begin training as a Jedi. All of this happened before the Great Sith War. 
    Yep, and before that, it was standard procedure for prospective Jedi to be taken for training as adults, not children. It wasn't until after the Great Sith War that younger students were even considered.
