I was looking through some older threads today, and thought I'd bump this one up now that the movies are all done and new television/EU stuff is on the way.  With the hype now gone from the prequel movies, have any of your lists changed at all?  I like a lot of the characters in SW, but if I listed the top few, it goes like this with me:

1. Han Solo (Just my favorite overall, and I couldn't picture anyone but Harrison Ford in this role)
2. Chewbacca (Han's sidekick, and I think the character has always appealed to me growing up because I always had a faithful dog at my side - kind of like Chewie)
3. Luke Skywalker (Scott made a good point early in this thread about him being under-appreciated.  To be honest, when I was a kid, I think I "pretended" to be Luke more than anyone else)
4. Yoda (as cool as the concept of seeing him "in action" in AOTC/ROTS, the OT incarnation of Yoda is my favorite overall I think)
5. Obi-Wan Kenobi (another under-rated character in some ways.  I like both portrayals - Ewan McGregor/PT and Sir Alec Guiness/OT)

Those are my favorite of the fleshed out characters, although I really like them all.  The droids, Leia, Vader, Lando, etc. could easily be on this list as well.  Plus, some of the lesser-used characters like Qui-Gon, Maul, Fett(s), Jedi, etc. are very cool.

1. Chewbacca - all the way back to my youth, he's been my favorite. A big faithful, loveable furball. What's not to love?

2. Lando Calrissian - put up against the wall he made a mistake but in the end he regretted it and righted his wrongs. I can relate to that...

3. Han Solo - the James Dean of the SW universe...

I also really like the Stormtroopers and the Ewoks but they don't really have much "character" to them...

I never really cared for Luke or Vader which is funny seeing as the whole damn saga is about them...

Though not really "characters" per se, Stormtroopers have always been my favorite. Yeah, shocking, I know.  :-*

As for an actual character, I'd say that A New Hope Luke was my favorite. He had naivete, innocence and strength, plus his face hadn't yet been battered to an unrecognizable pulp by a windshield Wampa.

I'm a huge Ewok lover, check the avatar!  :)  You didn't get to know much about them other than they put up a hell of a fight and can party their asses off which I totally respect.
