I also agree with his dread about the future where there is a Star Wars movie every year forever.
I think lack of romance would have been ok if they had decided not to have any at all. But Finn's "cute boyfriend" and Han's "a woman always learns the truth" comments felt like they were trying to force romance where there was no chemistry.

I also agree about there being a bit too much comedy and slapstickery. Finn felt a bit goofy for a former Stormtrooper. Poe's lines also felt cheesy.
