I think it was a cool idea to show the effects of the power vacuum left after the fall of the empire. I just wish it was done well by people that seem like they actually enjoy Star Wars. The basic remake of ANH without a planned ending for one of the most successful film series was the dumbest choices to make

That's true of all Star Wars trilogies, though. The norm in Hollywood is not plan ahead: if you plan, you get "locked" into a certain direction with the plot and the characters that you can't necessarily get out of, if audiences don't like that direction.

The classic Star Wars trilogy was like that: hence out-of-left-field nonesense like Leia being Luke's sister. But even the prequel trilogy was like that: it was only planned insofar as Lucas knew "Yoda and Obi Wan must survive and go into exile, Anakin must turn into Darth Vader, Palpatine and the Stormtroopers take over."
