Well, I mean... obviously, I am not an expert in galactic finance in the 25th century, but I have trouble seeing how the Broadbank's didn't come away from Aztechnology being bought out by GENOM even richer than they had been before. Although I might have missed them doing something insane like dumping all their stock in a fit of pique before the deal was inked.

That's entirely true; she has. And reasonable, fair-minded people are going to take that into consideration. But she owes a more direct debt to Diqiu in general and the people she wronged personally in particular, and I would humbly submit that she can't just make that "not count" by deciding to be a galactic hero, which is among other things a super-fun thing to do. :)

I see certain parallels between her and Anakyn shar Atrados, actually. It's pretty great that Anakyn has gotten his head screwed on right and stopped with all the, you know, the genocide, and that he saved Naboo and Len and Emmy and is mentoring Rei and suchly. But he owes a more direct debt to the surviving Atlanteans, and he doesn't get to be the one to decide how, or if, he works it off.

You are, of course, right that it wasn't the time or place to get into that with Azula, both in-universe and narratively.
