Why does Kylo Ren killing Han scene sound like a love scene?

I recently re-watched Star Wars Ep 7 the Force Awakens and I started laughing in the worst moment. When Kylo Ren was ready to kill his father, this emotional moment, this epic scene struck me as coming out of a romance movie! Read this again 🙂 but slowly.

HAN: Ben!
KYLO REN: Han Solo. I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time.

HAN: Take off that mask. You don’t need it.
KYLO REN: What do you think you’ll see if I do?
HAN: The face of my son.


KYLO REN: It’s too late.
HAN: No it’s not. Leave here with me. […]
KYLO REN: I’m being torn apart. I want to be free of this pain. I know what I have to do,  but I don’t know if I have the strength to do it. Will you help me?
HAN: Yes. Anything.
Kylo Ren unholsters his lightsaber and SLOWLY EXTENDS IT to Han, within a foot of Han’s chest. Han almost can’t believe it. The moment seems to last forever.
