    I was watching ANH the other night and I particularly enjoyed the performance of Peter Cushing as Tarkin.

    Just out of curiosity, but why did you specify Ewan's Obi-Wan? I too prefer Ewan McGregor's version. That's not to say that Alec Guinness did a poor job, but I preferred the way the character was handled in the PT.

    Basically the same reason you stated. I thought Ewan's handling of the character was better and much easier to understand and relate to. I don't mind Sir Alec it's just he's not well explored we have more time with Ewan's. I do wish people would stop saying Alec's Old Ben lied though. It's not his fault the OT and PT have different approaches.

    Poor old Sir Alec / Ben was a casualty of make it up as you go along storytelling.

    Yes he was and he gets labelled liar when it isn't his fault. I think it's rather unfair.

    R2-D2 (both trilogies)
    Leia (specifically in ANH)
    Dex
    Qui-Gon
    Luke (more so in ESB)
    Yoda

    I haven't put a list down because I keep changing it around, but I have discovered that the top places in my list are invariably dominated by non-Force users. Hmmmm...

    I know I am going to touch a nerve with many when I go on this rant but here goes, whenver I see someone rated Han Solo as their favorite Star Wars character I am guessing they must be a casual Star Wars fan and not a devoted fan. I know this is all subjective but I don't know how someone comes way watching the OT not having Darth Vader as their favorite character. To me Han is a great supporting character, he is just a notch above Boba Fett as someone fans want to give way too much increased importance to. Yes I know he saved Luke's life twice and he was a key leader in the rebellion, still he wasn't irreplacable. Luke and Leia were irraplacable so much was on their shoulders if either of them failed it would be a key victory for the empire. I will always think Lucas put Han's character to attract the casual viewer who would have otherwise said what are all these weird sci-fi characters in this movie, Han is the renegade cowboy that viewers related to. Even with a new hope which is many people's first Star Wars movie they watched I thought the movie was more Luke's journey and the mission to rescue a captive princess.


    Here is my top 10:

    1.Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker
    2.Luke Skywalker
    3.Yoda
    4.Emperor Palpaltine

    7.Chewbacca
    8.Qui Gon
    9.Darth Maul

    I enjoyed Maul's portion of TPM, but I feel like I would have liked him more if he was included in more of the movies, or had more screen time.

    No one else matters.
