    But at least JarJar was only in TPM as a major character.....

    Only cause fans complained so much that Lucas pretty much wrote him out of Episode II & III. ;)

    Most definitely Episode I "little Ani". And then Jar Jar.

    OT probably agree with 3PO but thats because of that Daniels fella. ;)

    There's already a thread in the Saga forum for least favourite in both the OT and PT.

    Given that this is the Classic forum- shouldn't examples given be restricted to OT ones? Either that, or merge the threads.

    Favorite: Han Solo in A New Hope and Empire.

    Least favorite: Han Solo in Return of the Jedi. Completely wasted character.

    The diner owner in AOTC. What a cgi'd stereotype. Whole part makes me mad sometimes. I knows he's been around in the EU and stuff but it seems so...forced (pun intended)

    PT: Watto, and i don't hate grievous but he was a disappointment after all the Clone Wars miniseries at the time made him out to be.
    OT:Weequay Guards. There's already Gammoreans which are way more fun, and Hasbro releases a Weequay action figure every year it seems so it's like, oh, i hope i can find that one character! Nope, there's just Weequay guards. Because no one wants to buy them, because they're boring and ugly. I didn't realize how much i despised them until right now.

    I'm going to have to agree with your answers. I have no clue what the big deal about Boba Fett is. He wasn't even a big part of the original movies, but obviously was a fan favorite, which is why his back-story was included in the PT (at least in my opinion).

    Yeah, he's one of my favorite characters! (See my avatar.) Salacious Crumb is friggin' hilarious, plus he looks awesome. Love the tuft coming out of the top of his head. I wish I had a Kowakian monkey-lizard as a pet.

    Wow, I'm surprised to see Han and Chewie being mentioned considerably in this thread, they're my favorites.
    Guess that's another thing to show you how diverse we Star Wars fans can be.

    My least favorite character from the Classic Trilogy? Bib Fortuna.

    I'm not sure I'd agree with that. Despite the fact that he is painfully annoying, I actually think he played an important role in developments in the Phantom Menace. After all, he led Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan into the hidden city of Otah Gunga where they could get a transport to Naboo and therefore rescuing the (decoy) Queen and other prominent leaders. This meant that the Trade Federation would lose its grip on Naboo. And if Jar-Jar did not exist then Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon would not have found the city of Otah Gunga (Qui-Gon reacted questioningly when Jar-Jar even mentioned it) and thus would have remained stranded in the forests of Naboo, perhaps eventually taken hostage by droids or even killed. This in turn would mean that they would not go to Tatooine and Anakin Skywalker would not have been found which practically means the rest of the Prequels along with all of the Original films would not exist at all...and whatever way you look at it, even if Palpatine went to Tatooine and picked up Anakin himself, the Star Wars universe would have progressed very differently from that moment on...Also, I think Jar-Jar stood in for Padme at the Senate in Attack of the Clones when she was on Naboo with Anakin, and made an announcement relating to Palpatine, so that too seems quite significant.

    That guy's a little legend. His life depended on amusing Jabba at least once a day, otherwise Jabba would kill him...

    PT-Padme, Portman is ok in TPM but she seems like she is just going through the motions in the other two films, Young Boba
    OT-Tagge,JerrJerrod(why couldn't Piett have been promoted to that spot it would have given him more screen time in ROTJ) and Doctor Eravazan(the guy whos says to luke, He doesn't like you)
    EU-Ima gunnadie(I mean really I know it is a cartoon but that name is dumb), Kyp Durron, Rosh Penin(from the Jedi Academy game), The mortis celestial things(including Abeloth who was tied into them during the legacy of the force book series), and Young Tenel Ka in the Young Jedi Knights series(she is such a mary sue in that series though she is a lot better of a character as an adult.)
