    Neither do I. Prime didn't have much of a chance against a SW character on a SW forum.[face_plain]

    At least we can take some comfort in the fact that, were Obi not in it, Prime would have won easily.

    Is anyone really surprised that a Star Wars character won, on a Star Wars message board?

    This is why I said we should have one like this excluding the Star Wars characters.

    Okay I don't see how people can claim that Kenobi won soley because this is a SW forum. There wern't a lot of SW characters permitted in this game and believe it or not Han Solo got ousted fairly early on as did Vader and Palpatine so clearly its not like everyone was voting for Kenobi because this is a SW site.

    Now I don't think that SW characters should've been allowed in this contest, but I certainly don't think Kenobi won because this is a SW site.

    I agree that, however we feel about the inclusion of SW characters, it's pretty clear that Obi-Wan did not win on those grounds alone. I imagine the same top two experiment repeated on most boards would produce a similar result.

    While there are others I would have rather seen (Mal!, Han, Qui-Gon, Baltar, Picard), I'm pleased with the final result. It would have been frustrating if someone as lame as Optimus Prime had won the tournament.

    In the upcoming fantasy tournament, I'm expecting some LotR domination. We'll see how that goes.
