I'm sure the choice was intentional given that its sunny disposition betrays the fact that it's a piece of military-grade hardware. While it was a cute idea, I'd rather it be more of a "Target acquired. Kill all humans." type of robot.

I'm hoping his defrag implies he'll be a bit more like his spritely old self now that he's awake. As it is, if Luke really does come back to the general public and gets anywhere near an X-Wing, we all know R-2 is going to be his wingdroid, for better or worse.

The movies are supposed to be the stories that R2D2 is telling to the mysterious Whills in the far future. That's why they all start with "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".

I can't deal with the idea of R2 having long outlived all his old friends with his memories as the only thing left of them.
He's the real Star Wars protagonist.

Presumably it has more efficient but less tools. In addition it's much more portable, and a hell of alot faster than the R series (BB-8 is able to keep up with Finn and Rey outrunning explosions)

BB-8's pretty heavy for its small size, apparently. Finn fell over trying to ease it down into the Falcon's maintenance pit because he didn't expect it to weigh so much.

No, Poe describes him as a BB-series and makes sure to mention he's white and orange when talking to Finn. Which means he would have others of the same make like him.

Even if they'd found Luke prior to that it's not like that would have stopped the First Order's plan any earlier.

That's only for the high-end devices. Unless you're -the- little girl or you're high-ranked enough, being a footsoldier in the TSAB entails having what amounts to a talking rifle.

Granted you can probably make small talk to it, but it's not going to roll off your bedside and into the nearest TSAB lab and ask for LOAD CARTRIDGE upgrades.

Alternatively, you can hop over into the Innocent spinoff where your likelihood of getting a special snowflake device is much higher (since it, being, well, card games in virtual reality).

Still cyborgs. All tech of the Imperium that would benefit from an AI is actually wired to human meat, since apparently AI are easily corrupted or manipulated by Chaos.

Well he did go with Rey in the end while BB-8 stayed with his not dead original master.

Of course R2 might end up sticking with Luke above all.

Some devices don't even trace their origins to professional device mechanics.
Bardiche was made by Linith, a goddamn familiar.
Asteion is made by Hayate, Agito, and Rein.
Lutecia, a fucking teenage girl, built Brunzel for Corona.

And then there's Raising Heart, whose origins is a complete mystery.
