    Let's not pretend that "Use the force, Luke" was blowing up the death star for him. Obi Wan basically told him to trust in himself and his own abilities / relationship with the force (whatever the hell that even means).

    Also, he most certainly seemed to hold his own with Vader in Return of the Jedi. I don't buy that that whole fight was "staged."
    Let me put it in terms you can understand: if Luke was playing Madden, he'd be cheesing.

    Too long, or failed to have an endgame? I think 4 seasons was fine, they just didn't write a good 4th season. Seriously, you, me, and a bottle of whiskey could write a better final season arc within a weekend.

    I recently re-watched 6 and 7. I kept an eye towards 8. Even in 6 as old as it is there is the foreshadowing we see in 7 and probably 8. I was surprised at some of the continuity. I have gotten over some of the rehashed themes from 4 that found its way into 7. It allowed me to enjoy it more a second time. They just weren't necessary and for older fans an annoying distraction. Even the title for 8 comes from a Yoda deathbed quote. One could take the title to mean that the Jedi are at an end, a transference from Luke to Rey of the title or that it merely refers to Luke.
