OK, that does solve the problem but ehhh that isn't mentioned anywhere in the film which would, you know, but the obvious place to explain it. It also doesn't explain why fat chinese bird's sister isn't sucked out into space when the bomb doors are open. There's no forcefield shown or hinted at.
As for the other plot holes, they are still gigantic.
The one that ruins it for me is the first order just following along behind and not calling in any other ships to box the rebels in. You have been trying to hunt them down and destroy them for 40 years and apparently you control most of the galaxy so a lack of ships shouldn't be an issue. A primary school child could come up with the idea of calling in some other ships. Are we supposed to believe all those generals just had a brain freeze or were so dumb they didn't think of it? Kinda hard to beleive they could have risen so high in such a large organisation if they were prone to such dim-wittery.
I just can't get my had round that bit. It just ruins the film when the badies are so dumb just so the plot can stack up.
Smart enough to invent a way to track in hyper space but not smart enough to think of the glaringly obvious solution to chasing the rebels.

I think this needed just a single line of clarity. For example. When Finn states ‘we are nowhere’, a simple line describing a reason why hyperspace is dangerous in that area would have been useful.
Or, can hyperspace jumps be done in short distance? Surely the slightest jump into hyperspace and ‘they would be on the other side of the galaxy by now’.
Or perhaps, as given by the reason of why Rebel transports leave hoth, that they are actually in a hyperspace lane. The reason that the hoth transports are flying towards a Star Destroyer in ESB, is because the Empire have put them right next to the beginning of hyperspace lanes. If the hyperspace Lane is where the 2 ships are, perhaps they are unable to outside the lane without risk or fear of crashing?
I think there are possibilities, but the only text given is sboutsublight engines. I don’t think this is a plot hole, but it does require more context. A simple line suggesting why they can’t hyperspace or call for reinforcements could make such a difference.
But if they have been looking to rid the resistance for 30 years, and this is the last of the heiracy, perhaps this alternative of tourturous impending doom is desired. Much like a cat slowly killing a mouse,one scratch at a time.

Did you complain in R1 when the Tantive blasts off at the end and Vader is left standing on the edge of space?
I don’t remember any explanations for those parts of the films but you want one now?
On the space chase you’re dead right tho
Another complaint I’ve seen is about the arcing laser blasters from Snokes ship, but then we’ve watched laser blasters with a definite recoil for years (happens in R1 as well) and not complained so perhaps we just accept its science fiction and not science fact (or they are homing lasers pew pew )

All this criticism of Leia space walking. She’s been doing it since 1980
