The stories were fun if not dramatic. Bearing in mind I’ve only watched the movies and read none of the books, here are a couple things I enjoyed:

A deeper look at the personalities of R2 and C3PO and their relationship. C3PO actually acknowledges his close friendship with R2D2! I get it now, they are like Bert and Ernie or Felix and Oscar.

The different art styles. The first couple stories are drawn with a really terse style with solid coloring. The last one seems like it’s colored using pencil or some style of painting to produce a wash effect.

The backstory in general. I’m not sure if it’s canon, but I enjoy seeing that characters I am familiar with have had lives outside of the “main” story, like Wide Sargasso Sea or Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
