100% true. Part of the problem with The Last Jedi is that a new director came in an changed everything. Screw the story arc of the trilogy. Feige would have never let that happen if he ran the StarWars franchise.
Also, Feige seems to have a damn good knack for picking directors.
It just seems the scripts were written with the intention of grabbing a broader (pansexual, anyone?) audience. Noble? Maybe. But that doesn't change the fact that they were even weaker than the last Lucas trilogy (though I did enjoy Revenge of the Sith).
