I'm actually getting the opposite; most of the issues I have are down to shitty scenes that are definitely shitty but they are ultimately superfluous and the main storey beats are actually quite interesting.

Yup. It is by no means a perfect film and is definitely the sloppiest of the main series in terms of pacing. I think these are outweighed by the originality it brings, but I can definitely see why some people disagree.
I know nothing about the stuff above has i haven't really ever watched Rebels or Clone Wars etc..
I was think on TLJ, do the rebels now think that Kylo killed Luke as she sensed his death? did Leia know that it wasn't really luke and just a projection. So would either her or Rey be aware that Luke appears to have sacrificed himself to the force or whatever he did.

I was getting at more whether they now think that Kylo killed Luke, rather than Luke doing whatever he did and then just vanishing into the force or something. I don't think that's something that would be touched on or explored going forwards though. Especially as Leia can obviously no longer be in it to query what happened.
Just finished watching this and... I loved it. I had issues with it (though none of them were Ade Edmondson ) almost from the off (the comedy bits) and elsewhere (the ponderous and boring af bombardment of the Rebel fleet and the connected casino side quest), but I mostly loved it. Heck, one of the comedy scenes even drew a legit lol from me! (The iron.)
The iron was amazing, best laugh of the movie by far. The opening's funnies were alright too, albeit a bit overplayed. I think that they could happily be trimmed down a bit in the future re-releases, make way for some of the more worthwhile deleted scenes to get put back in.
