I liked that Abrams set up his payoffs. For example early in the film characters use a skill or a certain thing happens, then later in the film when another opportunity to use that skill comes, it makes sense as a story. This did not happen in TLJ.

I think I’ll continue to hold the ‘in the seat’ experience as being a lot of fun
but the more I think about it, the bigger the problems get - both structurally and in the meta sense
Same, I am in the same boat.

I talked crap about not seeing it again in my post right after my initial viewing, but my other son now wants to go see it with me, so I will take him next week for what will be my second viewing. TLJ, for as much as I did not like it and ultimately still don't, I must admit that I did find that it got better with each subsequent viewing, so maybe this will help TROS for me.

maybe SW movies are just about being 'in the seat' fun and not some grand thing that fans imagined

meta stuff notwithstanding, there are still gaping plot holes that even the most arduous hand waving can’t overcome
Like what? (Not arguing, just want to hear your thoughts).

Put them in spoiler tags for now, unless everyone is ready to open this up.

every part of the wayfinder plots does not bear weight
Rey destroys Kylo’s ship that has the 1st wayfindr in it
The lost ship they need to find is sitting out i nthe open
And the sword’s sextant thingy maps a destroyed but circular structure that somehow has never moved even though it’s pounded for 50 ft waves
All of those are worse that hiding Luke on Anakin’s home planet with Anakin’s only known relatives
Luke and Leia knowing she’s a palpatine

To say nothing of crucial lore elements so important for the plot - force diad, Leia as master w lightsaber, force healing - that just pop up with no support (sure we saw force healing in Mando and Leia stuff has been in comics,but...)

Those are the big, plot dependent ones
But the little things like Kerri Russell having the secret get into jail free card
or bb8 having such trouble staying upright on a careening ship in TFA but now can stay attached to a listing ship?!?!
etcetc

I refuse to believe this. Sure, there should definitely be some "in the seat" fun, but there should be a good story involved, rather than a cobbled together mess. It was clear that they had no direction with this trilogy. They knew they were making a set of three movies. They should have planned out, at the very least, the grand strokes of the entire trilogy. There's no way in hell that that happened with these three movies. Star Wars has plenty of excellent book series that are planned out in this way, even though different authors are a part of the series. There needs to be some cohesion to things and I felt that this last movie was just a "let's throw a whole bunch of stuff onto the screen as fast as possible and see what sticks" kind of thing.
