It certainly skews younger than Clone Wars or Rebels in terms of target audience, and so battle scenes seem a little weird because of it. Stormtroopers have even worse aim than before, lots of fisticuffs and hi-jinks rather than full on "fights". It takes roughly ten episodes or so to really get going, and judging by the Season 2 trailer, I think I know why. They laid lots of groundwork in Season 1 for character interactions in Season 2 that will be very interesting to watch. So while Season 1 in retrospect might be somewhat tedious to watch at times, I think Season 2 will make the somewhat slow pace of the first season worth it.
The Poe Dameron standalone episodes are where the show shines, and obviously they couldn't make that the show because Oscar Issac costs money to get in the booth. So instead we get Kaz as a main character, and he's 100% the weakest link on the show. Like Ahsoka and Ezra before him, he does have the tendency to get annoying, but where those two characters really grew and matured by the end of their shows, I'm not so sure the same will be said of Kaz. We'll see. One aspect of the show does seem to be false advertising in a sense, where in the early marketing they kept building up these racers and how big of an impact the racers have in the show, and we're lucky if in most episodes we get 30 seconds of them on screen outside of Torra Doza or Hype Fazon. The others are background characters and hardly have screen time, where one or two maybe have a combined total of five lines throughout the first season. And races are very infrequent, which is odd considering how much the races were talked about.
I think the saving grace of the show might be possible tie ins to other portions of Star Wars media in the second season. I wouldn't be surprised if Shriv and Zey Versio from Battlefront II popped up at some point, and considering the release window for Season 2, there's probably going to be some big tie ins the Episode IX, whether that be Poe coming back in some capacity or the cast linking up with the remainder of the Resistance closer to the end of Season 2 so we can get a "here's where they were in the final battle" moment not unlike The Ghost being seen during the Battle of Scarif. We'll see. Overall I would recommend it, but it's certainly not the best animated Star Wars show by a long shot (that's either Clone Wars or The Freemaker Adventures [and no, I'm not joking]).
