    You know those chips that were used in the Clone Wars to override their consciousness and compel them to obey Order 66, I think the First Order could have made use of this in the Last Jedi and in The Rise of Skywalker but with specific words and visual 'triggers' being used to compel him to obey orders, referencing conspiracy theories about the application of the CIA program MK Ultra.

    Perhaps using him as kind of like an infiltrator to feed them information, commit acts of sabotage or to use him as an assassin, kind of like Aphrodite IX (Image/Top Cow) series in which Aphrodite has no recollection of the orders that she has been given.

    Or perhaps Rose- that would really be interesting to see, for her to have the revelation that she has become a tool of the very thing she hated.

    I just feel that this was a missed opportunity.

    I always thought that the installation of chips/orders was part of the cloning process. I'm not sure if you can take a person who was already born and just install a brain chip.

    On the other hand, there is more traditional brainwashing (not using a chip), and I have no doubt that the First Order does that to troopers anyway. But in my opinion, this kind of manipulation does not completely close the door on free will and the possibility of ignoring the order.

    I agree and think that the techniques that the First Order uses is more psychological and chemical instead of physiological as if they overly relied on cybernetic means like the decraniated (essentially turning them into organic robots like the servitors from Warhammer 40K), they would lose imagination and judgement and the behaviours of the stormtroopers would become predictable and easy to counter.

    Having said this, it would be cool if the First Order could capture enemy combatants, analyse their linguistic patterns, remove their brains or perform psycho-surgery and use them as what would essentially be remote controlled drones to act as spies, expendable assassins or even just to be remotely detonated when positioned close enough to their friends.
