To be clear, my “how they were handled” above referred to the fact that they pretty much weren’t. Just some indication that these were real people who had normal romantic drives, but little more.

To me any tension between them seemed to fall within the range of what could easily just be natural dynamics of people working together in a tense situation. Especially notable when they explicitly didn’t embrace after getting through the shield. I saw that as a clear “no time for romance here” signal from the director, making the simple human contact at the end a perfect open ended statement.

Chirrut and Baze, in the other hand, read like an old couple who had been through hell together and didn’t give a damn about playing mushy for the audience’s benefit.
