Just out of curiosity, I followed a walk-through of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor video game. They're doing more with character development in these games, although they have to catch up with the first two seasons of Mando and then Andor. Offspring had an Xbox with Star Wars Obi-wan, Star Wars Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy, so that's my background. I'll not be getting the hardware it takes to run Jedi Survivor at home; it's just not interesting enough--especially since I can always replay Halo CE, 2, 3, and 4 on our Xbox 360 if I'm so inclined.

Well, Ahsoka Ep. 4 seems to have generated indifference here. Dunno. Maybe the “space-wizard-seeks-magical-gadget” trope has run its course with me. Luke’s journey was “Who am I?”, not “Where is the magically-endowed gadget I need to advance the plot to the next episode?”

This hidden map BS is the exact same plot device used in RoS to find the path to Exegol and the zombie Emperor, who happened to have a fleet ready to return and destroy the fledgling Republic. I wonder what Thrawn will have...maybe yet another fleet?

Also
shouldn't the Witch Morgan's ( nice theft of the King Arthur character, btw ) departure via the giant hyperspace circle have turned the arriving General Hera and her associates into space dust? Wasn't that the point of the Holdo Maneuver? ( which is an all-time favorite scene for me, but that may be my Laura Dern fetish showing )

I'm beginning to think that the writers for Respawn, who did the two video games _Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order_ and _Star Wars Jedi Survivor_, were thinking very much along the same lines as Rian Johnson in _Last Jedi_. The two video games take for granted the destruction of the Jedi Order and the corrosive effects of despair and the desire for revenge amongst the few Jedi survivors of Order 66.

The Luke Skywalker of _Last Jedi_ is very much of a piece with the tone of_Survivor_, which takes seriously the notion of abandoning the quest to re-establish the Order as an institution. To be sure, in the Star Wars timeline, the two video games occur after _Revenge of the Sith_ and before _A New Hope_, but prefigure very much the tone of _Last Jedi_--sans Rey of course.
