male? female? light side/dark side?
Canon Exile(Before Karpyshyn wrecked her continuity).
Mara Jade will always be my favorite.
I have too many favourites, but i think my number one would have to be Han Solo
Revan is certainly up there, very interesting story. HK-47 as well. Yoda is always near the top
I can't really make a pick, but I'll give my 5 most favourite:
Nomi Sunrider, Ulic-Qel Droma, Dooku, K'Kruhk and Chewbacca.
I love Leebo, possibly my favourite.
it's interesting there seems to be more people that class EU characters as theire favourite
instead of "flesh canon characters"
that's very curious to me
Personally I enjoy the fact that EU characters (well, some) have a lot more time for character development than the movie characters (aside from perhaps Luke, Obi and Ani). Over the course of, for example, 3 novels, I might learn a lot more about Darth Bane and how he thinks, what his motives are, how he changes etc. than I might learn about Lando Calrissian from one and a half movies, in which he was only on screen for perhaps 1.5 hours max. And also the fact that my imagination can make novels seem much more epic than any movie.
Movies: Obi-Wan Kenobi. Do I need to add anything else?
EU: Revan. One of the most complex characters in the entire Star Wars saga who was neither a Jedi, nor a Sith, but at times was both of them.
It wasn't that bad if it wasn't for her to be defeated from Darth Nyriss. I understand that Karpyshyn wanted her to be defeated, because he wanted to show how badass Revan was, but I didn't liked the way how he underrated Exile and made her just another average Jedi on that fight.
Nick Rostu simply for the fact that I am a sucker for Shatterpoint but also because he is a carefree soldier that is loyal and skilled in his duties. He is a born and raised soldier yet he still gives into the basic instincts.
of course, he can breath underwater!
There was no reason for him to be like 'My character is better than your's, nur nur nur nur.' The fact he entirely ignores everything that was established beforehand for the character was more BS and the fact he goes LUL she gets insta-owned! lul! KotOR 2 sucks! the entire novel, is basically why it is my worst novel in the EU, it's Mara Jade all over again.
