    R2-D2 and his way of saving the galaxy. He in my opinion is the true hero of the Star Wars saga. Without him, there wouldn't be a Star Wars movie after Episode I. Let's please take some time to recap his savings and calculate how many times he has saved the day!!!!

    The Phantom Menace
    -He fixed the sheild generator: if he hadn't done that, then the ship would have been hit and destroyed.
    -He saved Anakin from getting Anakin squashed like a small bug. If that wouldn't have happened, there would have been no Darth Vader to kill the Emperor.

    Attack of the Clones
    -He kept watch over Padme`'s bed. He didn't save the day, but he didn't ruin it either.
    -R2 saved Padme` from becomeing a hot molten liquid...
    -He re-attached C3PO's head.

    Episode III
    -R2 will do something. We just know it.

    A New Hope
    -He delivered the Death Star plans.
    -He shut down the trashcompactor.
    -He fixed something on Luke's ship.
    -He put out the fire in the Flacon after a TIE fighter hit it.

    The Empire Strikes Back
    -Unlocking doors at Cloud City while dodging laser blasts.
    -Sprayed smoke out in front of the storm troopers at Cloud City.
    -Fixed the Falcon's Hyperdrive

    Return of the Jedi
    -He gave Luke his lightsabre.
    -He cut the group out of the net on endor.
    -He (along with C3PO) made a distraction while Han and Leia were doing their buisness.
    -He delivered Luke's message to Jabba the Hutt
    -------He was sadly shot when he was trying to unlock a door.


    I say we give R2 a lightsabre and have him fight with it....not really but R2 is truely my hero.

    We know he has at leat 16 saves. R2 is the man.

    He also helped put out the small fire that burned when the TIE fighters were attacking the Falcon in ANH.
    Don't forget his crucial message deliveries such as the message for Obi-Wan in ANH and the message for Jabba in ROTJ.

    And above all, don't forget his fearsome duel in the swamps with Yoda. Cane vs. mechanical arm. The most epic SW duel yet...

    I just love R2 and I wish I could understand his binary(?) language more. I DO know when he says his name, though. It's "beedeep boodoop beedeep boodoop." Listen for it, especially in PT when he and 3PO meet.

    R2 ROCKS!! I love that little droid! And even with all his heroics I still crack up at that scene in ANH when he's captured by the Jawas and falls over [face_laugh] I keep telling all my friends that I want a real R2...he can do the laundry, wash the dishes...serve drinks at parties... :) Have you all seen Beneath the Dome? That is hilarious...I love it when Spielberg says he thought of using him as a beach obstacle [face_laugh] so funny!!

    Me and my friends do refer to R2 as "The REAL hero of the trilogy"
    And then one guy starts to do a perfect R2 whistle!

    So what do you all think is the most heroic thing R2 has ever done in the Star Wars saga?

    Lucas has always said that SW is really the story of the droids....

    However, I think he's lost sight of that and now it's about Anakin. Whiny brat played by a terrible actor...

    Why hasn't R2-D2 won an Oscar yet? He was the best actor in the Star Wars series and some would agree that he is the best actors. Have you all seen his whole life on R2-D2 Beneath the Dome??? His life story is amazing. That documentary was so much better than the one on Michael Jackson.

    I think R2 needs an Oscar and his documentary should go the big screen.

    -------He was sadly shot when he was trying to unlock a door. (ROTJ)

    But had he not been there, Han would have been hit.

    Of course he's the true hero of the Saga. I thought everyone knew that.
