    My top ten, favorites, allowing for personal bias:

    1) Luke Skywalker. All the crap he goes through, and he still manages to retain his goodness.
    2) Yoda. Set the gold standard all Jedi masters would be measured against. Most failed.
    3) Qui-Gon Jinn, Aside from Obi-wan, he was the only redeeming part of Episode I for me, and showed the average Jedi at the height of their power.
    4) Obi-Wan Kenobi. Arguably the protagonist of the prequels, and the only one I felt any empathy with (probably due mostly to MacGregor's acting) and the character is a huge part of establishing continuity in the trilogy as a whole.
    5) Jaina Solo. She retains agency and her own hobbies while still being a Jedi, and is badass. Her brush with the dark side fundamentally altered her.
    6) Tyria Sarkin Tainer. Starts off as an incredibly low-powered Jedi with limited force powers and low self-confidence. Becomes an Antarian Ranger and survives the brutal Imperial occupation of Topwara. Manages to train as a Jedi independently (without giving up or going dark) while maintaining a successful long-distance marriage and raising two children in the middle of a war. Kicks Mandalorian ass.
    7) Leia Organa Solo. Did pretty much everything Tyria did and more. I'm amazed she didn't go dark. Managed to give Han just as much sarcasm as he did her over a multi-decade marriage. That takes dedication.
    8) Ganner Rhysode. Not for his last stand, but for the character development that helped him get to that point over the course of the NJO. If more characters had been written in that way, the series could have been so much better.
    9) Kyle Katarn. Because dangit, I really loved those games.
    10) Anakin Solo. Because he was nice, considerate and kind to pretty much everyone, so of course he had to die.

    At the absolute bottom: Kyp Durron. Couldn't stand him when reading KJA as a kid, still can't stand him now. Once you've killed a few billion people, and destroyed entire solar systems there is nothing you can do to redeem yourself from that, (Unless your name is Samantha Carter and you're in a different franchise...)

    The way his character was written afterwards, it seems like he never really tried, or ever struggled with the dark side again- which is pretty unbelievable for someone with that level of power, history and impulse-control issues.

    The NR should have tried him for war crimes and genocide, with my preferred punishment being a sentence to a 10x10x10 cell surrounded by ysalmiri for the rest of his life while he writes letters of condolence to the relatives of all the people he killed who may have been off-planet at the time.

    This is the problem. Is it a choice based on the preferences of any one, or a choice based on what it means to be Jedi? According to my analysis of the EU and especially of the PT, a Jedi is a servant of the Force, surrendering his will to that of the Force by letting go of intention, of desire and of life, no matter his midi-chlorians rate or his suitability to a lightsaber. What matters is his faith in the Force and his determination to follow its ways. Based there above, here are my choices :
    1) Zao
    2) Qui-Gon Jinn
    3) Nico Diath
    4) Jon Antilles
    5) Knol Ven'nari
    6) Fay
    7) An'ya Kuro
    8) Thracia Cho Leem
    9) Serifa Altunen
    10) Meetra Surik

    (1) Obi Wan Kenobi - for me he was the perfect Jedi - everything I ever loved about the order.

    "There is an understated elegance in Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsaber technique, one that is quite unlike the feel one might get from the other great swordsbeings of the Jedi Order. He lacks entirely the flash, the pure bold elan of an Anakin Skywalker; there is nowhere in him the penumbral ferocity of a Mace Windu or a Depa Billaba nor the stylish grace of a Shaak Ti or a Dooku, and he is nothing resembling the whirlwind of destruction that Yoda can become.

    He is simplicity itself.

    That is his power." ROTS, Matthew Stover

    (2) Wolf Sazen - Cade Skywalker's master from the Legacy series. Like Obi Wan he embodies the Jedi path beautifully.

    (3) Quinlan Vos - such a complicated and interesting character. In many ways he's the opposite kind of Jedi to Obi Wan (which makes the Quinlan/Obi Wan mission in TCW really funny). He can be impulsive, angry, sneaky. He walks so close to the dark and yet his heart is good. I think he's great.

    (4) Das Jennir - from the Dark Times comic series. I like him because he's a very human Jedi, not massively powerful or amazingly good, but he does his best in a difficult time.

    (5) Revan - another really interesting character with a complex story.

    (6) Mace Windu - beautiful powerful ferocious Jedi. I really love the way he is described in fierce and true in defending his 'herd' - the Republic.

    (7) Luke Skywalker - I loved watching him mature as a Jedi.

    (8) Ki-Adi-Mundi - He was brilliant in 'Outlander'

    (9) Ganner Rhysode - because he was so flawed and yet, when it really counted he found his way.

    (10) Jacen Solo - becuase he was a deep thinker and most of all becuase of his love of life and all living things. (This is only before all that Darth Caedus stuff)

    Oh and I forgot Yoda!!!! - He's fab too. Love his wisdom.
