Not really relevant, but thanks I guess.

Err, it's very relevant to what you said. Would you rather they show a long drawn out scene of the rebels coming up with a detailed plan of attack?

You think a real life military briefing meeting is relevant to a Hollywood Star Wars film? Ok.

You're right. Nothing in the Star Wars films has any resemblance to real life. My bad.

Fwiw, I highly enjoyed Force Awakens and felt it did more right than wrong. I don't expect them to do anything "new," mind you; this is an established franchise with at least seven or eight films and a bunch of other shit.

But I'd love to see them mix up the tropes a little. Or at least no more Death Star runs.

They showed they can do a really good (and fun!) Star Wars film. Now I want to see them make a great one in league with Empire Strikes Back.

To date Empire is the best film.

Also the one that lacks the most Death Stars

I want a Star Wars movie that has no Jedi, Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and other assorted action figures.

They already turned Trek into a Toy Commercial as well.

That would actually just create a whole new assortment of action figures.
