>I'm sure you liked the conclusion of the character in the story who literally symbolizes hope and optimism in A New HOPE being depicted as a pessimistic coward who, after training with Yoda himself, somehow ended up failing to be a Jedi master - so much so that his sister's son ended up becoming a fucking Sith
The way Episode VII set up Kylo Ren as this second Vader was a massive mistake. The difference between Ben and Anakin is that Anakin had a reason to turn to the Sith.
>and then went into exile where he drank blue milk and, after all the trouble of leaving his dead-end farmboy life and finally discovering the mystical power of the force in Return of the JEDI, did a 180 and outright said it's all bullshit and that the Jedi should end
I'm not so sure of that. I think he wanted to find a reason for it to end it, but he couldn't fully convince himself that it had all been for naught as he would have otherwise destroyed everything. As to why he was so disheartened, it was because he felt fear and failed just like Yoda, Obi-wan, Anakin, and the Jedi Council had, despite millenniums of teaching and wisdom and the Chosen One fulfilling his prophecy.
>Yoda burning down all remaining records of Jedi history and culture that he believed
That didn't happen. Rey took the books.
>and then finally dying alone for no reason after pulling an astral projection.
He had a reason. To ensure the Jedi continue and to confront what he feared most.
I like a portion of the film. The rest of it is garbage. Christ, you fags act like I'm shilling for Disney when I've said multiple times that VIII is not good and have listed the other two films as the worst of the nine. It might be that you underestimate my disdain for the prequels, making you think I hold VIII in high regard.
