    After some thought, here's my top ten. Harder than I thought:
    1. Han Solo
    2. Luke Skywalker
    3. Obi-Wan Kenobi
    4. Darth Vader
    5. Princess Leia
    6. Rey
    7. Kylo Ren
    8. Yoda
    9. R2-D2/C-3PO (inseparable)

    1. Han Solo
    2. Yoda
    3. Darth Vader
    4. Princess Leia
    5. Palpatine
    6. Luke Skywalker
    7. Lando Calrissian
    8. Obi-Wan Kenobi
    9. C-3PO
    10. Chewbacca

    I'm not a fan of TFA and I think it's too early to say anything about the characters in the ST. However, I will say that Rey is the best character in TFA by far.

    As someone who has not yet watched TFA or Rogue One:
    1. Luke Skywalker, the one who made it
    2. Anakin Skywalker, the one who loved people and who made it out
    3. Tie for Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was everything a Knight should be, and Padme Amidala, the courageous woman
    4. R2-D2, the smartass
    5. The Lars Family, down-to-earth farmers
    6. Leia, the indestructible
    7. Han Solo, who learned unselfishness
    8. Lando Calrissian, who became a hero and flew above Endor
    9. C-3PO, who always bemoans the odds

    Very difficult to do. I am rating movie characters only. In order:

    Luke - Greatest hero of the saga. Was always my number one without question.
    Han - The man's man, and the ultimate bad boy. Another truly great hero. Greatest non force-user of the saga.
    Vader in OT - His portrayal in OT is transcendent. Perhaps the greatest movie villain ever.
    Yoda - Mentor to the Jedi greats. Most powerful light-side force-user we've seen in the movies so far.
    Obi-Wan - The greatest hero of the PT. The quintessential Jedi, who in his prime, was only surpassed by Yoda and Mace.
    Rey - Poised to be the hero of the ST. Daisy Ridley was amazing in TFA. I dig a female force-user as the primary lead. Could be Luke's daughter, which is too cool.
    Chewie - Coolest right-hand man character ever. Reminded me of Bigfoot when I saw Star Wars in 1977 as a kid. Strength personified.
    Leia - One of, if not the greatest movie heroine of all-time.
    Kylo Ren - Tribute to Vader. Coolest dark-sider we've seen since Vader and Sidious.
    Finn - Funny, altruistic, great good guy. Worthy co-lead.
    The Droids - Especially R2 and BB8. Cute and funny. C3PO is annoying sometimes, but I love him still. Not to mention, he spoke the first line in Star Wars movie history.
    The Fetts - Coolest obscure characters maybe ever.

    Honorable Mentions (in no particular order):

    Palpatine: Ian McDiarmid was stellar and owned every scene he was in. Evil personified. Was the real villain.
    Poe: Charismatic super-pilot.
    Darth Maul: Fourth coolest bad guy design behind Vader, Palpatine, and Kylo, which is still a tremendous compliment Whirling dervish in saber combat. Double-bladed light saber gave me chills.
    Jabba the Hutt: The gangster. Made me laugh.
    Qui-Gonn: The rebellious Jedi Master. Liam Neeson is too cool. Anchored TPM. Force-ghost extraordinaire.
    Dooku: Classy character. Elegant light-saber displays. He's an honorable mention because I never bought him as a really evil dude. Got snookered by Palpatine. I always think of him as Saruman first.

    I like lists. Therefore, I will have multiple lists! :p

    If I list a character who overlaps, I won't list them again in another list. I'll cap each list at a max of 30.

    I like a lot of really random characters that played no real importance :p

    Pre-Rise of the Empire Era: (Includes Legends)
    1. Obi-Wan Kenobi
    2. Kit Fisto
    3. Padme Amidala
    4. Mace Windu
    5. Yoda
    6. R2-D2
    7. Shaak Ti
    8. Aayla Secura
    9. Ki-Adi-Mundi
    10. Quinlan Vos
    11. Siri Tachi
    12. Plo Koon
    13. Qui-Gon Jinn
    14. Yaddle
    15. Bail Organa
    16. Shmi Skywalker
    17. Zett Jukassa (brave MF)
    18. Even Piell
    19. Ahsoka Tano
    20. Depa Billaba
    21. Queen Apailana
    22. Oppo Rancisis
    23. Adi Gallia
    24. Capt. Typho
    25. Anakin Skywalker
    26. Luminara Unduli
    27. Voolif Monn
    28. Dexter Jettster
    29. Foul Moudama
    30. Stass Allie

    Empire Era and After: (Includes Legends + Rebels) (Also includes Rogue One)
    1. Luke Skywalker
    2. Leia
    3. Chewbacca
    4. Han Solo
    5. Admiral Ackbar
    6. Mon Mothma
    7. Mara Jade Skywalker
    8. Jaina Solo Rel
    9. Ben Skywalker
    10. C-3PO (idk why but I liked him more in the originals then in the prequels lol)
    11. Lowbacca
    12. K'Kruhk (I mean, how is he not cool? His life has spanned through so much time...all the way to the New Jedi Order and his species hibernation ability in times of danger is amazing).
    13. Anakin Solo
    14. Caleb Dume/Kanan Jarrus (very interesting character all around)
    15. Ezra Bridger
    16. Raymus Antilles
    17. Boba Fett (Loved this character but really felt like he could've been better articulated in the films)
    18. Wicket
    19. Rex
    20. T'ra Saa (like K'Kruhk, its pretty crazy how long she stayed alive and how deep her commitment to the Jedi was)
    21. Chirrut Imwe
    22. Cassian Andor
    23. Jyn Erso
    24. K-2SO
    25. Bodhi Rook
    26. Saw Gerrera


    I know these lists are a bit nonsensical (i.e. listing R2 and C3PO is separate lists), but I gave up trying to organize it within neat categories and just threw vague lists together Lol.

    In the personal canon thread, I stated that I didn't know whether I counted the NJO era as apart of my own canon or the Force Awakens-and-after era but that I lean towards the NJO, thus me listing it while excluding TFA. RO was also apart of it, thus me listing those characters as well.

    About this order, at the present time...

    Han Solo
    Darth Vader (suited form)
    Yoda
    Darth Sidious
    Rey
    Kylo Ren
    Mace Windu
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Luke Skywalker
    Chewbacca
    Princess Leia
    Grand Moff Tarkin
    Qui-Gon Jinn
    Boba Fett
    Padmé (mostly because it is Natalie Portman, as I think the character)
    Anakin and Darth Vader (pre-suit, when he is much less cool)

    Other characters are lower.
