I've watched all episodes of The Mandalorian recently as well, and while I agree that they're lightyears ahead of the sequel trilogy there's still room for improvement. OK, so at least this time they got two things right: good story and interesting characters. However, I still have an issue with Disney's obsession of re-using familiar elements and aestethics. Even when they try to create original stuff, like planets for example, they still look like a mixture between Bespin and Tatooine or something. I'm getting tired of seeing the same old stuff on planets that's supposed to be new and have their own unique style. Just take the Jawas for example, in the old canon they can only be found on Tatooine but now in Disney's canon they can be found on countless of different planets, apparently. It's getting tiredsome. Say what you want about George Lucas but at least he tried to make every single planet look unique in its own way.
Yup, I also noticed the Luke scene at the end of Season 2 looked eerily similar aesthetically to the Vader Death Star scene from Rogue One. When I was watching, I thought "they literally just ripped Luke in place of Darth and swapped the Troopers with droids". I was amped when it happened, but I couldn't help but gawk at how much it copies the Vader Rogue One scene.
