I didn't mind the Mind Trick in Force Awakens though. As time's gone on, I feel it's less "She's inexperienced at it" and more "She's brute forcing her way into making this Stormtrooper obey", which fits the whole theme of Rey's dalliance with the Dark Side.
It works on a narrative level for sure; Jedi not liking to go full-Xavier because it’s a Sithy thing to do.
I was more agreeing with Betty about the overall power creep of Force users. To me, being able to read minds or completely control people is up there with the super speed.
