I was under the impression or I should say expectation, Roku stick could accomplish more than it's capable of, I've learned it's just an internet streaming device with an odd wireless remote, nothing appreciably more.

I would highly you purchase a shield tv. You'd be very happy with that. It does have offline capabilities. It's a great device. And to make this relevant to the OP. It does have Chromecast as well. I use it mostly when I need High quality 4k with lossless DTS and Dolby formats Roku doesn't support. I think it's the modern replacement for the WDTV Live. I also like being able to us it to Stream PC Games like I am on a console.

To, the OP, this user is wanting offline capabilities on Roku, which is not relevant to your question.

This sounds like a good suggestion, I'm looking for something more than a simple internet streaming device and didn't know shield includes chromecast protocol, thank you.  It's not easy identifying what a device is incapable of, apparently expectations remain incredibly low in this new age of AI and higher learning.

Try looking at this site. The poster has made a lot of effort to identify the capabilities of various media streaming boxes, although it was developed strictly for 4K capable devices.

Thanks, it's time I checked back in with that forum.  Last year they poo-pood smart TV's and most anything to do with video streaming in favor of high definition any bird of prey would envy.
