Which 3 of these deceased characters do you miss the most?
I voted for Darth Vader cause afteral the saga revolves around him! And for Mace Windu and Yoda cause they are the two most badass Jedi in the saga.
I miss them all, I know we only had three to choose from so I chose Obi-wan because he's my fav. character, Mace windu and no offence Anakin Dooku. I liked him as sith lord, and curved lightsaber. (one of my favorite lightsabers behind Obi-wan's ep.3)
lol, why would I be offended by that...
Well, he's not Darth Vader
We all have our favorites.
Indeed, Vader is only better...as you said we all have our favourites
Um... I'm pretty sure that Chewbacca never died in the movies. Are we going off of the novels too?
Don't tell me. It might spoil the books for someone.
I chose Yoda cause I love his character in episode v. I also chose Darth Maul; I would have liked to see his character developed more. My third will remain a mystery.
Well since Chewbacca is on the list....that pretty much gives away what's gonna happen with him...
I'm surprised Qui-Gon Jinn isn't on the list...there's only one EU character on the list and not every Star Wars fan knows him. (Well considering his name you could guess of course lol)
my favourites are Jango, Mace and Yoda ^^
Your right, I should have included him. An oversight.......
I voted for Vader, Sidious and Yoda. Love those characters, especially Palpatine and Vader. I think Vader/ Anakin in general is my alltime favourite character, but Palpatine in the prequels is just amazing, I love him. And without a doubt he has the funniest lines in the Prequel movies eg:
"The thought of losing you, is unbearable!"
"I love democracy, I love the Republic!"
"Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy and we shall have peace!"
That's a few for examples, but his character in Episodes I-III is just fantastic, love him.
I put Yoda simply because I have gained more for him after seeing him in all the movies, to be true, the same could be said about Kenobi, but I hold more appreciation for Yoda.
Like Anakin said, Qui-Gon should've been on this, cause I would certainly have voted for him instead of Yoda. Also, why on earth is Anakin Solo on it??? That character concept makes me cringe!!! lol
How would Leia having children someday make someone cringe? Is this an unexpected plot development?
Well, she had twins, too predictable, I mean common. And "Anakin" Solo? She would be the last person to call her son that name. The most likely to do that would be Luke, he was very attached to his father. But Lucas wanted to show how Leia had no attachement into knowing her father, her biological father anyway. She, like Padmé, was not one to let her emotions get the better of her. Whereas Luke, was just like Anakin, he was too attached to the notion of who Darth Vader was. Leia thought he should not face him, she could not understand why he had the desire to. But with Luke, it was different. So if the creator of the Anakin Solo character wanted to be so unoriginal by reusing that name, he shouldn't have placed it as Leia's child, it's so uncharacteristic of her. But with Luke, although still not credible, still it would be understandable.
I admit, Anakin was not a good name for one of Leia's children.
I have no problem with her having kids, not at all. But they could've made it more original is all. If the EU had been creative and true to the 'spirit' and 'nature' of Star Wars, I could have become a fan of it. But I find it bland and too Star Trekky even at times.
For some of us, the EU is creative and true to the 'spirit' and 'nature' of Star Wars.
Yeah I appreciate that, but for me, it never did anything. It took a long while for Anakin to get me interested even in the EU stuff concerning the Clone Wars lol I would never have touched it if it had not been for him. But I'm now quite happy with it.
In my poll for favorite authors, several of them are prequel era writers.
About Qui-Gon again, I'd be interested in learning Lucas' opinion, of what training for him was like with Dooku. Qui-Gon had such a different and interesting point as a Jedi. When you now watch The Phantom Menace, knowing everything that comes after, you do see how different Qui-Gon was as a Jedi. How rebellious he was. I would like to have known more about him. And also, it would've been nice if his lines had been left in Episode III when he spoke with Yoda about retaining one's identity through the Force.
