In my mind, I rationalized this with Han's dice, and Luke kissing her on the head. If Kylo can poke a lightsaber through the projection, and if the dice disappeared in Kylo's hands, it seems clear to...

I actually can't disagree with you at all. I think I also considered the violence in context, so it did not seem gratuitous. But at the same time, I do remember being appalled and sick from the...

Sounds to me like they're playing it very safe, which (along with releasing the video right away) is consistent with their handling of this whole situation. They don't want a Waco or Ruby Ridge, and...
