I think I love the Star Wars franchise overall because it takes classic story lines and uses them to build a world that you care about. It is a fully visualized world that has people you love an care about it. It is a classic battle of good vs evil. In in the story line simplicity it allows you to focus on everything else. I think this chapter of the saga fulfills those aspects perfectly. Also having actors that are invested and can act makes a lot of difference in selling things without having to explain it to you.
