The part that didn't land for me about that scene was those terrible bomber designs. Star Wars has always borrowed heavily from a WWII aesthetic, but the slow, lumbering bombers that drop their payload directly downwards, in space, just felt like it went from aesthetic to direct adaptation with no regard for medium, and the idea that the Resistance would consider using them in such a strike just felt wrong.
This definitely gets at a taste issue I think. For me that wasn't really a problem. I liked how the bombers looked on screen and star wars has always felt very 'we are in space but the physics is more like real world dog fighting'. But I do get the critique. I think it is going to boil down to what leaps out at you when you are watching and what disrupts believability for you.
I liked the chemistry in TFA. I thought Finn and Poe bromancing as they stole a TIE Fighter was great, as was Finn and Rey connecting as they stole the Millennium Falcon. One of the great shames of the subsequent movies is that they didn't really build on that.
Finn and Rose was fine, but they were ill-served by the plot, their actions ultimately being not merely ineffective but actually counterproductive.
What worked for me in TLJ were Poe's journey towards leadership via Leia's example, and Rey's journey towards understanding the Force through both Luke and Kylo.
Overall I think Finn really kind of got mismanaged from one movie to the next. The first two started with interesting directions but because they never committed to them and never revisited them, it felt more like TV show logic to me than movie logic (in a movie I expect something introduced in an early scene or early film to be followed upon later, whereas I get with a show they may be trying different things out because its more about what sustains the show over a long haul). I think the peak moment for that in the films is Finn saying he had something to tell Rey that seemed super important, but either I missed what the big revelation was or they just dropped it.
I didn't have a big problem with their adventure being counterproductive but I do wish it was more like Empire (which I do think they were going for) where it really amped up stakes and led us naturally into the next film with lots of anticipation-----the B plot in empire was a failure too but it resulted in Han being frozen in carbonite so the stakes were raised and it gave a lot of meaning to that final shot with Luke standing with his new hand next to Leia (and most importantly it made you really want to see the next movie).
I wasn't as big a fan of the direction they went with Poe. I also think they really misused Oscar Isaacs talent because he is usually wonderful in anything I have seen him in (if you haven't seen it, I highly, highly recommend watching him in the film Agora). I liked him in the first movie but he felt either annoying or dull to me in the second 2
Also they should have killed Chewbacca. That was the one poignant moment in the final film that worked and really brought clarity to Rey's character for me, then they just undid it.
