    ...which would it be?

    Obviously Coruscant would be the closest to busy 21st century earth, and Naboo's probably the best in terms of quality of life, education, work, etc, but I think I have a soft spot for Tatooine.

    I know certain areas are described as a "wretched hive of scum and villainy" but it just looks so fun on that dustbowl. A nice little apartment similar to Anakin's slave quarters would suit me just fine. Work on your tan all morning then pop down to the cantina for a cheeky drink come sundown.

    Naboo sure looks nice, but man, that's a stupid name for a planet. As names go, it's almost as bad as the menacing-sounding "Dooku".

    Alderaan, pre-Death Star. Post-Death Star, Dantooine looked nice.

    Well either you live in a soul-crushing industrialized megalopolis, a dirt-poor, blazing-hot, boring-as-hell Third World backwater, a parking lot somewhere in Scandinavia, Renaissance Italy, or a forest populated by a species that, upon contact with another sapient species, decides the best approach is to kill and eat them. :p Take your pick!

    Naboo seems like the most pleasant place to live, with the nice scenery and seemingly civilized folks. Tatooine might be nice to visit, but it seems like a dangerous place.

    Summers on Naboo, winters on Coruscant (well, technically, it seems that it's always summer there). I grew up in a megapolis so I'd be fine, provided I had a lot of credits in my bank account. Upper levels look nice with some greenery. I'd like to have a view of the Senate and the Jedi Temple.

    Cloud City is not bad either, but it seems like a company town :)

    No neighbours, no tourists, no idiots. Just misanthropic recluses who live there so no one bothers them & don't bother each other.

    I was watching early animatics for Mustafar's duel, apparently there might even be a train somewhere there... It's more civilized than you think.
    Wasn't Vader living on a lava planet in Brackett's draft?

    Corellia because it has a decent ratio of city and open country, and fast ships.

    Naboo for sure. Or maybe Alderran, but I've never seen the surface. I've always thought that Lucas should've used Alderran in place of Naboo in the PT. Of course you'd have to disregard Leia's statement of them being peaceful and having no weapons in ANH, but still, I always thought that would've been cool.

    I like big cities, so I would have to choose Coruscant. Although, Naboo would be a nice place to have a second home on.

    Coruscant, but I would probably end up living in the lower level slums.

    Coruscant, Corellia, Cloud City or Nar Shadda

    Naboo seems like it would be the easiest planet to live on, so that would be my first pick. Second would have to be cloud city though, it seemed like it was pretty nice there.

    I'd go Rhinnal love a planet that's cold all around, followed by Coruscant love big cities

    I don't think I would like to necessarily live on a planet. I'd be like Han Solo and Chewie and live on the Millennium Falcon and only touch down for repairs, fuel, and business operations.

    But if I'd have to pick, I would pick Coruscant, Naboo or Corellia, or Tatooine. Tatooine's my favorite planet in terms of having that OT kind of feel, and Naboo and Corellia both have excellent scenery and are pretty and stuff. And Coruscant (Notron...I like that name...) is the center of galactic government...but since it's one giant city, the chances of you living in a place with a view of the jedi temple or the senate would be slim to nothing...

    Since Naboo is essentially designed to be paradise, that's a pretty easy choice. Coruscant would be an amazing place to visit, but I'd only want to live there if I was rich. Endor would also be a very attractive home for me, but I'm not sure how well I would adapt to the primitive lifestyle and the many dangerous creatures that live in those woods.
