The Vader scene at the end was one of the reasons that I disliked Rogue One. It didn't need to be there. They didn't need to literally connect the end of Rogue One to the original trilogy. They should have left Vader and that creepy CG Tarkin out of the film.
I really liked the look and feel of Rogue One and I see what they were going for (i.e. an homage to classic war films) but there were massive problems with weak characters with weak motivations. I honestly didn't give a shit about any of them except for the robot. Much of Rogue One felt like that pointless casino side plot in The Last Jedi to me. I really feel like there was probably a good war movie there before all the re-shoots. The trailer looked really good but 80% of it ended up getting cut out of the movie.
