As far as I know we have no idea what that double-hulled TIE that led the squadron chasing them into the Maw was supposed to be. That's what I'm most interested in, of the new things we saw.
It's Rogue, not Rouge!

TIE/rb is the official name but it's been officially known unofficially as the TIE Brute

So I finally got around to seeing Solo. I went in not expecting much, and the movie met my expectations. It was an okay sci-fi heist plot, but didn't add anything to our understanding of Han Solo as a character. I'd describe it as the visual equivalent of eating meringue. Consuming it was enjoyable enough, but it wasn't particularly satisfying afterwards because it didn't really contain anything of substance.

I feel like this movie should have come out in 2014, before the release of TFA. At the very least it would have addressed one of the issues with TLJ, where casual fans who don't delve deeply into the old EU were left wondering about the significance of the dice that the movie was so fixated upon.

Alternatively, I preferred a different idea I saw where instead of Solo, the movie is Calrissian, and focused on Lando's transition from scoundrel to legitimate businessman, where Han plays a supporting role, or even just shows up as a cameo with the Sabacc game where Lando loses the Falcon.
