No I'm not wondering that because there's no reason why that would be an option.
So wait, you think her arch was being disillusioned with legends?
I'll tell you again. Luke was literally her hero/legend.2. Please tell me what doesn't make sense about it? Luke told her that HE wasn't going to stand against an army by himself and that he cut himself off from the force, he didn't say it was impossible. He also told her that her power was almost unparalleled. Why would she think because he won't stand against an army, that she can't?
A literal living legend, and literally, LITERALLY the only jedi in the galaxy, you know the one that she heard all the stories and rumours about. Those same rumours and stories about what Jedi can do with the force.
None of which likely involved him crushing huge structures with his mind.
My guess would be because unless you know the detailed schematics of the machine, just randomly applying pressure to something that could be as strong as star ship durasteel and hoping it gets destroyed would not be as useful as trying to actively cover your friends below?
Not to mention doing it while in a rapidly moving ship theoretically could be more difficult? Oh and assuming something like that worked, it would again fuck up multiple character archs?
So you think her main arch is that?
Except your suggesting things that even the stories she heard would not mention or consider, which is a key point of what I was saying.
It's the difference between "what the fuck is the force?" and "I heard Jedi can influence minds and lift rocks!" and "I heard some dude named star killer pulled a star destroyer out of orbit with nothing but the force!" . Those last two are not in the same realm of possibility when someone considers relative power.
