This answer includes any franchise, production etc. Something being violent or not does not make it good or not, it is all about the tone and usage of it. If you are gonna do a battle scene, make sure you properly handle the violence into the setting and surroundings. If I go the cinema in order to watch Venom, I expect properly executed violent scenes and gore, not this pg13 crap for example. If Star Wars is gonna go violent, they better understand how lightsabers and other weapons work otherwise the product will be crap. For example recent Hellboy had violence but that's it. Nothing else.

I liked Rogue One, and it was pretty violent. They don't have to do it all the time, but it is nice every once in a while.

Something of the level of torture porn like the gratuitous violence and gore of Maul: Lockdown I'm not a fan of but moderate level grit and realistic violence like The Bane Trilogy and Shatterpoint is fine in my book.

Meh, Rebels is a case of there not being much violence but still doing a great job at telling a story. Too much is bad, too little is boring.

Not necessarily. When I think of the greatest moments in Star Wars, I think of Padme's ruminations, Order 66 and the rise of the Empire, the birth of Darth Vader, the binary sunset, Luke's training on Dagobah, the Throne Room scene, and others. Some of these scenes have violence, but that's not what makes them great. It's the emotional underpinnings. There's nothing wrong with a cool action scene for the sake of a cool action scene, but in my opinion violence works better when it's used to elevate the themes of the work.
