J.J. Abrams always wanted General Hux to be played by a young actor. He wanted the character to have a sense of tragedy and the fact that he appears to be too young to be in charge of a murderous group added to that. According to Abrams, the character's name was created after he noticed an old, abandoned grave site with the name Hux engraved on the stone. See more »
Han calls Kylo Ren "Ben". Confusion arises because in the Star Wars universe before this movie as released in the tie-in books Ben is the name of Luke's son. Han and Leia gave birth to "Jacen", Jaina" and Anakin".
This was true only until Disney abandoned the Extended Universe as canon. Han's children were Jacen, Jaina and Anakin and Luke's son was Ben in the expanded universe. The Expanded Universe is no longer considered canon to the Star Wars universe as it applies to these movies.
It could in fact be argued that the "Ben" name was used as a nod to the now non-canon EU. See more »
Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

The story is an omnibus of Episodes IV, V, and VI. It has about 20 plot holes. All of the characters are shallow. Rey is a Mary Sue. FN contradicts himself throughout. Poe is a Gary Sue. Luke, Leia and Han have been stripped of their legendary status. The MacGuffin is derivative.
It is my sincere belief that Kathleen Kennedy convinced George Lucas to sell to Disney with the knowledge that she would be in charge of Lucasfilm. She also had no intention of continuing Lucas' vision and opted to use tired formulas from The Hunger Games and Harry Potter movies. The Force Awakens is an attempt to replace the first trilogy completely and start an all-new franchise under Disney (Disney's Star Wars). The intent is to push Lucas' 6-film series into obscurity. It's what Disney did with the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and Hans Christian Anderson.
