I think I will retract my JEJ comment. He sounded better the last two times I saw the movie.
I feel the artoo/Threepio cameo was weird too. I think it would have worked better to show them on the Tantive than on Yavin. Threepio could have said his I hate space travel line there... possibly. Plus, what if the droids had been captured? The Empire would have had the location of the secret Rebel base. Well, any of the Rebels could have been interrogated for that info. So possible plot hole there. But I agree with your comment about the plans being beamed to the Tantive and Vader pursuing them.
What are people's takes on the ending on Scarif? It almost seemed like they wanted to push a romantic angle with Jyn and Cassian in the lift with their lingering gaze almost kiss. I can see perhaps a we're going to die here in moments connection, but it seems like it was filmed this way in case Disney wanted a happy ending.
I didn't get a romantic vibe from Cassian and Jyn until my second viewing, but I am glad they didn't push it too hard, but there was something there, I though JEJ sounded pretty good, I loved his "Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, Director" line, delivered perfectly. I am glad they added Threepio and Artoo, that way they've been in every Star Wars movie.
Also, I really need to see Rogue One for a third time, been really busy so I haven't been able to.
