Congrats on your retirement. I beat you there by a bit, Feb. will be 6 years for me (seems like a lot less). I have found that while I have more time for games, I have less patience with them. I'm not sure that I play more overall than I did before. But then in my WoW heydays I was playing 60 hours a week while working a full-time job. I am streaky. I might play Satisfactory 12 hours in a day, and then not play anything the next day. However, I'm not going to waste a lot of time playing a bad game (not a shot at Jedi Fallen Order, about which I know very little).
"... playing 60 hours a week while working a full-time job.", my profound respects, sir.
I share your less patient disposition that, I believe, comes from lengthy familiarity with the gaming tropes.
Fortunately, Cheat Engine allows me a sort of sight seeing grindless speed running type of play without hassles and fustrations.
That rather makes even "bad" games enjoyable, to a point, and having more curiousity than a cat.
The best of years to you and loved ones.
