    Well, I just love favorite lists so here is one for you all. Please name the bit character that appeals to you the most or maybe you would like to know more about. This is a character in the SW universe that maybe only had a small part in the movies, books, comics, etc. We all know and love Bobba Fett and Tarkin, and the sexy Emperor, but what about the other lesser favorite bit characters. I have 3:

    1. Mon Mothma: who was she and why hasn't anyone mentioned her appearance in any of the next movies. Or maybe I'm wrong.

    2. Admiral Ackbar: He was a strong lobster with a tough spirit and a commanding voice. I would love to know more about him.

    3. Wedge: Everyone loves Wedge!! If you don't your a sucka. He escaped to fly another day in all of the movies, but that man of mystery still haunts me.



    Vanity Fair: Did anyone run out and buy the magazine like I did?!?!?! I loved the cover picture of Anakin and Amidala, very sweet. I have the one from last year too in Episode I.

    1) Darth Maul obviously :D I'd love to read lots more about him
    2) I agree about Mon Mothma... she's pretty intriguing
    3) I can't honestly think of anyone else off the top of my head movie-wise.. but I'm sure there're others.

    Yes, I got the Vanity Fair issue too :)

    I highly doubt we'll see any of those characters in the next two movies.

    Basically because they're really not important to the plot. Mon Mothma is a former Imperial Senator that leads the Rebellion. If you think about it, that's all we really need to know about her.

    I would rather not see Tarkin, either. He's just not key to the plot.

    And I like Wedge as much as the next fan, but hey, let's face it--he was meant to be cannon fodder. Just another face in a cockpit like Porkins or Red Leader.

    I think all of these things are best left in the EU, and leave the movies to deal with the real meat of SW. :)

    I thought that's what she meant from most of her post.. EU or movie.. I personally don't mind getting more tidbits from EU since I do read the books...

    Wedge= Kenny McCormick.

    I was always a fan of Lobot. I think of him every time I see a guy who is bald on top with the hair surrounding his head from ear to ear. Wonder if that was the inspiration....

    o.k. I have to agree with lobot, what gives??? You can pick someone from either or. Also, I pick Amidala. She is a mystery ready to be solved.
