I see them as a wasted opportunity. People wished to see the continuing saga of Luke, Leia and Hans. I cannot remember the name of the guy but he speaks at length on YouTube about Disney and how the new team screwed up the Star Wars saga. Instead of focusing the story on those 3 characters they were more or less pushed to the background
I partially agree with this. Disney didn't pay billions for LucasFilms to make nostalgia bait starring 60-something year old actors; for STAR WARS to continue, it has to be passed to a new generation. I thought TFA did a decent enough job of introducing new characters; I liked Finn and thought Rey and Kylo at least had potential.
To me, the wasted opportunity was not uniting Han, Luke and Leia on a final, grand adventure while simultaneously introducing new blood. It was one shot chance, and Disney blew it. Not putting the original characters back together is surely one of the dumbest decisions in cinematic history.
