Also, I'll add that "Universe Building" is quite difficult.

JJ Abrams co-wrote his script with Kasdan, who wrote Empire and ROTJ, so Abrams had a leg up on that script. He also bitched enough (which I leaked way back during the filming) that he got his "way" most of the time. Being an Editor and Composer helped Abrams vision of TFA as well (although I personally disliked the story).

Any criticism of Gareth Edwards is ridiculous. KK, the Lucasfilm story team and Iger approved the script and it was shot exactly as scripted. After Iger and KK saw an edited version (sans VFX), the decision to make the film "darker" was made and Tony Gilroy, who'd worked with Gareth before, was hired to rewrite and direct, while Gareth worked with the VFX team for the final battle.

Fortunately for us fans, Lucasfilm, KK and Disney have nearly endless pockets so they're able to make corrections if the films are not up to the standard set by the OT.

Also, this process will only help KK and the story group as they move forward so that she'll be able to avoid this type of pitfall for the next standalone film.
