And it is not the Empire. It is some weird group of people that think that they are the Empire, but are way more evil (they kill for fun) and have no background story whatsoever. They just pop into existence...
But the Republic seems to be unable or unwilling to do anything about it,
even though they destroy entire Solar Systems
and instead led some stupid Guerillia group fight for them.
once they use the suns energy, how do they move it?
I guess they don't? Or they have some other super new technology that is in no way explained and makes no sense why they have it.
Come on, the "wanna be Imperials" just pop out of existence and have super weapon tech that no one else has?
Even the Empire took years to develop (Actually the Seperatists developed it) and to build the first Deathstar...
I am raging. I hate this new movie so much. It starts good, but as soon as Han Solo shows up the movie goes downhill very fast.
