    No choice for Anakin?

    Well, he died spiritually speaking. Vader =/= Anakin

    Btw I voted Grievous on behalf of my cousin : P
    Such blown away potential

    I think he is. Where's the proof he survived?

    I voted Mace but my answer would've been Darth Maul if he'd been an option. He's one of the coolest characters in the PT.

    Wishful thinking. But, hey, a bit of that doesn't hurt now and then.

    The poll seems a bit skewed. It doesn't list some key players that die and have a fair bit of people that like them.

    You could have had:
    • Count Dooku
    • Darth Maul
    • Anakin Skywalker (technically, he died)
    • Jango Fett
    • Nute Gunray

    I was surprised all the names you mentioned weren't there, especially Dooku and Jango

    Though I think this poll originally DID have Maul, but you know... his revival in TCW <_<

    I would have voted for Anakin if he was up there. He pretty much died in the Prequels, too, no?

    By the way, why isn't Dooku, Fett and Maul up on this list, instead of Koon, Mundi and Fisto, who didn't even have enough screen time to mention their freakin names?

    There's too much wrong with that poll.

    Liam Neeson because he has many skills that make him to Sith lords like you a nightmare.

    I was going to post Mace Windu as my favorite character who got killed in the prequels, but then I read the poll, and seen the name Qui-Gon who I had inexplicably forgotten about. Then, I was going to post Mace + Qui-Gon, but just as I reached the bottom of this thread I read Jango's name, and so currently...barring any unforeseen future additions to my list...my vote goes to Mace + Qui-Gon + Jango Fett.

    Edit: Just remembered Dooku/Maul. So the list now stands at Mace + Qui-Gon + Jango + Dooku + Maul...barring any unforeseen future additions to my list.

    I agree, Dooku and Jango are much more iconic and relevant characters.

    Voted for Qui-Gon, but Dooku would be a close second.

    Another blow to Plinkett's and RLM's criticism of TPM. In their review of TPM, Qui-Gon is depicted as a boring character that the audience can't identify with, and he is contrasted with Han, who is depicted as the epitome of a three-dimensional sympathetic character. Clearly a lot more viewers identify with Qui-Gon that the RLM review predicts.

    Was thinking Maul but seeing as he is removed, definitely Qui-Gon. He seemed like one of the wisest guy's around. Sad to see Padme go as well.

    Qui-Gon. That guy has more coolness than any other Jedi in the PT.

    Yes, indeed.

    It doesn't take a genius to see that, generally speaking, most TPM and PT fans were and are enamoured of Qui-Gon.

    Relatively widespread affection for the character is also borne out by a 1999 Gallup poll:

    http://www.gallup.com/poll/3757/public-gives-latest-star-wars-installment-positive-rave-reviews.aspx

    Qui-Gon is placed top, followed by Anakin and Jar Jar in 2nd and 3rd position, respectively.

    The RLM reviews are heavy on slander and rhetoric, but rather thin on objectivity, basic fairness, and little things called facts.

    Out of that list - Mace Windu for sure.
