    There are so many scenes to pick from.

    I would have to say any scene featuring the twin suns is beautifully meaningful in my opinion. (I love them all)

    Honorable mention goes to Jyn and Cassian embracing at the end of RO as they accept their fate.

    Something about the Star Destroyers crashing into each other above the planetary shield on Scarif as debris reigns down set to the strangely haunting yet happy "Your Father Would Have Been Proud" is just incredible to me.

    Beautiful in terms of aesthetic or emotion? Aesthetic, I'd probably have to say the Holdo Maneuver in TLJ, but there are a LOT of jaw-droppingly gorogeous shots in that film.

    Emotion is a lot harder. The two that stick out to me are when Luke is dragging Vader towards the ship in ROTJ - that sheer determination to save his father is heartbreakingly beautiful - and probably something between Finn and Rose during TLJ. I'm not a giant fan of Finn and Rose's relationship, despite being a huge fan of both characters, but there's something pure about their relationship that I would classify as beautiful. It feels innocent in a way that I can't really see anymore, and real because Rose is the most realistic character in the series IMO. I don't know if any of that makes sense, but that's how I feel today.

    Luke is dragging Vader is a good moment of show, not tell. I wish that the dialogue choices weren't so clunky and that Hamill's acting didn't feel stiff, comparatively to his acting in The Empire Strikes Back.

    I don't get why people hate Rose. Just because she spits out what is probably a Return of the Jedi theme does not mean that the character stinks. If you think that Rose stinks because of the line, I suggest going back to the sources of where the line came from- Luke deciding to not kill Vader and deciding to not kill the Emperor (not kill what we hate, I guess?). Save what we love- Vader saving Luke.

    Also, they blame Rose for supposedly threatening the Resistance and dooming them to their deaths when a. Poe specifically told the crew to turn back to save lives- he thought that their chances were better in the cave/waiting for the signal to somehow make it through in time to alert any allies/being taken as hostages/prisoners. b. Even if Poe was wrong about their chances, and that they were all going to die if the barrier was destroyed, it shows Rose willing (whether it's negative or positive development) to focus on a specific individual rather than save the Resistance. It's a risky theme, and I think, actually exposes ROTJ for what it is, Luke potentially taking insane risks against his friends and the Rebellion to save his father's soul, which is confusing enough at times ("because there's still good in him"... then why try to turn him, if he already has good in him? Is his goodness not enough to save him from the dark side? Saving his son makes him good, even though he was good enough to start with? Or allows him to changes sides, despite part of him already being good? What?).

    I still find this scene better than the most confusing and inconsistent (in respect to TESB) scenes in ROTJ (throne room scene with Luke, Vader, and the Emperor- start to finish, and probably the bridge scene between Luke and Vader), which get a free pass from most SW fans, imo. If these scenes can get a free pass and (acceptance of the salesman pitch theme of "don't turn to the dark side or you will become a heartless monster") from 30-ish seconds of musical bliss, a dramatic and impressive right-to-left panning shot, some good pacing (with the music and Vader using his brain), and some moments of good acting (but not really good dialogue or sound logic, for the most part), I don't understand why fans accept this scene. And I honestly used to really like the throne scene.
