Your Favorite Character in the Saga?
« on: July 8, 2003, 01:14 PM »
I'm sorry if this has been posted another time, I took a quick glance and didn't see anything recent, so I thought I'd start a thread.  My question is, who is your favorite character in this Star Wars world we all enjoy so much?  If you have troubles narrowing it down to one, list as many as you want, rank them in your preference, whatever you want to do.  I just thought it might be interesting to see everyone's favorites.  Mine are probably not all that "original", but here's my favorites:

1. Han Solo (all-time favorite, my fave as a kid, and it continues today)
2. Yoda (really close to my overall favorite, Attack of the Clones made him even cooler in my opinion)
3. Chewbacca (gotta like the Wookiee, plus, he's Han's homeboy) :P

Honorable mention to Luke (particularly in Jedi, I remember thinking he was pretty cool when I was a kid), as well as Boba Fett (not ultra original I know, but come on, he is pretty cool-looking) :)

Main character:  Chewbacca.  I don't know why.  Maybe its because I always thought it would be cool to have a 7' tall hairy bodyguard who was good at chess and ripping droid's arms out of sockets.  Brains and brawn  :-*

Fav alien species: other than wookiees, Gamorrean Guards.  Again I have no idea why, just because.

Oh, it really bugs me when I agree with you.  In case he changes the pic to mock me, I say Lord Vader.  I didn't even cheer when his ship spun out of control when I was 13.

Yoda all the way for me although his whole fight scene in AOTC sorta of knocked down a few pegs from his really lofty perch

Second would be Jabba, I loved the big tub o' goo since he first came on screen

Third is Luke.  Never been a huge Han fan and not really sure why people like him more than the true hero of the Saga.  Luke rules and is really underappreciated IMO

My favorite character was Obi-Wan, but as the prequels progress, Lucas seems to be making him two-faced.

So I'm going to go with Luke and R2-D2, especially R2. That little droid can get you out of anything.

From a guy who likes Ewoks, you pick him?   :-*

For me, it would be Han Solo.

If we're just basing these on the movies this would be my order.

1) Han Solo
2) Darth Vader
3) Obi-Wan Kenobi (especially now with the prequals)
4) Yoda

If we want to include books too, then Darth Maul would be right between Obi-Wan and Yoda.
Stressed out?  Poop.  It'll make you feel better.

Older topic, just thought I'd bring it up if there were any new/changing opinions.  Favorite character(s) from the Saga....originals, prequels, both, whatever.

1 and 1a.  Han Solo and Chewbacca (kind of hand in hand with me.  My favorites above all others)

2.  Yoda (although seeing him with a lightsaber was cool, the teacher Yoda from the OT is my favorite)

3.  Luke (as posted earlier by Scott in this thread, an under-appreciated character in many respects)

4.  The Rest (really vague, but I find I have a spot for the majority of the OT characters...specifically Vader, the droids, Fett, Obi-Wan, Lando, Leia, Palpatine, Jabba, etc.)

5.  Prequel Characters - Chewie will be showing up soon, so he'll probably be first....otherwise, Obi-Wan.  I really think Ewan McGregor's character is one of the bright spots of the prequels.  Some of the other characters/designs are nice though too.  Nice to see all the different Jedi, always kind of liked Plo Koon, although he hasn't done much :).

There are a lot of characters that are good, just have cool designs and no lines in particular, so this list could be pretty extensive for me.  Limiting it somewhat, those would be my choices.
