Exactly. The  game is nothing but mindless fanservice. I think even for the most unambicious popcorn blockbusters we still need some substance, this is a movie with no substance, there is no story to tell. The movie is a parody of itself, that are moments where the villain start a devious laugh and you just laugh with him because you can't take that seriously 

Yeah the more I hear about it the more it solidifies my decision to never watch it. 

I don't mind fanservice when done right; recently Godzilla vs Kong had quite a bit of it and I enjoyed that film a lot, but to echo Verter's analogy, it's okay if it's the sauce, but not the entire dish. When a film becomes a vapid, arrogant celebration of itself without the quality to back it up, it just comes off as obnoxious. 

If only the fanservice was done right in Rise of Skywalker, then the movie would've only felt hollow. But not only is the whole thing fanservice, it's fanservice done so wrong... like, I think they were trying to make it feel like this really epic finale but even looking past its soullessness, the stakes felt lower than ever for the series. And that's without getting into the vast multitude of nonsensical moments and plot holes - the amount of these on display far surpasses that of The Last Jedi, but here they don't even have the cinematography or set pieces to back it up. Everything is ugly and boring.
