Recently, it's been revealed that Rian Johnson didn't care much for Snoke as he found him uninteresting. He wanted to focus on Kylo Ren, which I think was the best character of the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy.
I don't agree with how he went around highlighting Kylo, via offing Snoke without emphasizing on his character, which in turn, would have made Kylo Ren look even more powerful. It seems to be a Rian Johnson theme where he subdues the top characters like Luke Skywalker for Rey and Snoke for Kylo in a way to highlight the new characters. I think a more effective way of doing this would be to flesh out the more powerful characters then to have the new ones defeat them or to have the baton handed down from them.
The idea of destroying them so nothing is left to focus on but the new characters is a showcase of, in my limited opinion and experience, lame writing.
If you like the sequels, more power to you! Keep loving them.
They are not for me, and my opinions should not impact or invalidate yours, and vice versa.
May the force be with you!
