I agree in part. But I see the influence of other types of films in some of the new Star Wars. Solo kept switching genres - car chase movie, war picture, western train heist, etc. Mandalorian's a spaghetti western (at least it started that way).
You could say that they're just drawing from those styles of films just because that's what Lucas drew from, and maybe that's true. But how do you stay true to the Star Wars esthetic without drawing on Star Wars? Fans get mad at anything that goes to far away from they think of as Star Wars. Yet if they draw too much from "nostalgia," stay too close to what Lucas created, people hate those too. Maybe it's not as fine a line as that, but it's a difficult line to straddle.
IMO the way 'Solo' hopped around those genres was part of what made it feel like SW. It's part of what made it fun.
Disney has done two decent SW movies, 'Solo' and 'Rogue One.' Both times they were stepping off the main path of the Skywalker episodes. It's the only healthy way forward IMO.
Spending $300m chasing past box-office glories is a failing business model. It's how you get 'Terminator: Dark Fate' and 'The Rise of Skywalker' and 'Indy: Dial of Destiny'. They need to take a hard look at their situation with these franchises and start aiming lower. Lower budgets, lower expectations, and less corporate morons dictating creative choices.
