"I won't presume to speak for all Star Wars enthusiasts, and I certainly don't count myself among the ranks of the most passionate fans of the franchise, but I am personally not fond of the retconcept of midichlorians because it felt to me like an attempt to demystify the Force, and the mysticism of the Force was a big part of what I found so fascinating about that universe. They also struck me as just slightly, albeit unintentionally, ableist, implying that one's ability to experience or manipulate the Force is determined by a genetic factor beyond one's control rather than the amount of effort one dedicated to study and training."
