I see no problems with Newton's third law in the examples you have noted.It is interesting to note that in certain specific types of supernova explosions the explosion is asymmetrical and the residual compact object is ejected from the area of the explosion at high speed an example of the third law operating in very extreme conditionsYour questions are still not clearly enough defined to give an answer.
If we take a hard look at something local, we have our lunar tides to consider.....It is the appropriate amount of abundant Negative Pressure within our own Positive Pressure atmosphere that “commands” our atmosphere to surrender and become locally “depressed” by 16 percent, as the moon approaches and passes overhead. The moon does not “pull” the tides. The atmospheric depression caused by the moon’s proportionally greater positive pressure, (and the universally huge supply of negative pressure), actually pushes our tides as the moon progresses.
Now. Do you know what a "Barycentre" is? Look it up, and explain to yourself how an inward global pressure would affect the tides. (Don't be fooled by the ellipse.)
