Just thinking about this....who was the next major villain of the saga after these two? Dath Maul - dedicated and ruthless Sith lord, killed Qui-Gon Jinn. Count Dooku, leader of the separatists and most active agent in the Clone Wars, defeated Obi-Wan and Anakin and held his own against Yoda. Grand Moff Tarkin - Commander of the original Death Star and destroyed Alderaan, and if I'm not mistaken, superior to Vader in the chain of command. Jabba the Hutt, the galaxy's biggest and most feared crime lord and who laughs at Jedi.
