    <<< notice the icon!

    I've always been a Luke Skywalker fan! I was Luke Skywalker for Halloween one year, I collected all of the Luke Skywalker action figures (both vintage and current), and I even had the Luke Skywalker underoos! :D

    EDIT: We had a thread like this not too long ago...but no worries, it's cool! In the future, check the first couple pages of threads before starting something like this. Good thing is that we keep having fun conversations like this (and on the website boards), mixed with FF business.

    I voted for Mace Windu- I'm a Samuel L. Jackson fan. Unfortunately, you left out Han Solo.. I would have voted for him instead!

    Darth Vader is awesome. Anakin Skywalker is annoying the way Lucas wrote him, but the rewrite Liz, Lauren and I have going has a much more likeable Anakin. Inspired, of course, by our extreme dislike for Anakin and our love for Vader.

    I have to go with Leia because she displays women so well.

    Alright, but do you guys like Darth Vader for "dark lord of the sith" or because of Anakin Skywalker "gone bad...later redeems himself"? Personally, I think the prequels may make Darth Vader into more of a sympathetic character, because we'll have seen what coulda been and know that he lost so much of his life...by choosing the dark side.

    Vader, because I'm actually more a fan of Anakin's when he's still a Jedi and you can see all that's going on in his head and how he's progressing towards the Dark Side.

    Since there are only two women and Leia is the only one I have really SEEN in a movie I had to go with Leia...not to mention she is the one I am making a costume of :D .

    I'm going to have to agree with Debbie. Girls need strong women role models and she's one of the best (besides Buffy :D).

    I took a screen grab of that comment just so you can't deny it later.


    And I voted for Vader. He's just cool.

    I went with Obi-Wan. Despite his limited roles in Episodes V & VI he really did have a huge part to play in the return of the freedom in the galaxy. He really seems to take a lot of flak for letting Anakin fall to the Dark Side but the JC could have put Anakin under Master Yoda's watchfull eye at any time.

    Alot of people like to blame Obi-Wan for Anakin falling to the dark side, but really if Anakin was the key to bring balance to the Force...then it HAD to happen. Just as Luke HAD to confront Darth Vader again...it makes the story (as we're finally witnessing in prequels) all tied together.

    Mara, of course. ;)
    No. She's not in the movies. But she is a very strong woman character and I love how she compliments Luke so well. And the force meld between them in VotF *happy sigh*

    I agree that Obi-Wan can't really take all the blame for the fall of Anakin. It's interesting reading the Jedi Quest books--how Obi-Wan is pulled between so badly wanting a close, loving relationship between himself and Anakin as he and Qui Gon had, and wanting to be a good Master to his padawan.
    Who do you blame?
    Qui-Gon for laying such a heavy burden on Obi-Wan?
    Obi-Wan for accepting something that he likely was not ready for?
    The counsil for allowing it or at least from not giving Obi-Wan enough help with this very powerful and unusual boy?
    How about Anakin for not listening to all the things that his Master was trying to instill in him--for always following his own will (which was proven wrong time and time again in the Jedi Quest books) instead of what was for the good of the order and the Republic?
    There is a lot of blame to go around.
    But, as Geoff stated, things had to unfold the way that they did in order for balance to be restored.

    Actually, even Anakin himself blames Obi-Wan multiple times...

    It's all Obi-Wan's fault

    Now Obi-Wan's failure is complete

    I agree with all of your comments about Anikin, and it's obvious to see why it was done. And I also believe it was neccessary to portray him this way for the progression of the story...and I love watching his desent into the darkside, it's great. The slaughtering of the Sand People was classic and his angrily bum rushing Dooku was cool. But the fact still remains he and his son started out as whiny little b!tches.

    In the Lars garage scene, Anakin is lashing out at anyone and everything...because he was unable to save his mother. But even he realizes that it does not excuse his actions (murdering the Tuskens) and knows that what he is saying doesn't make sense:

    "I'm a jedi...I know I am better then this"

    And as for the comment he (Vader) makes in ANH, it would seem that his assesment of Obi-Wan's "failure" was far from accurate, since in the end Anakin casts out his darker side, to save the life of his own son. Anakin let his anger and arrogance ruin his life, and almost destroyed the galaxy in the process.

    Like alot of people, he needed to be "waiting for the wheel"

    I don't agree. He knows what he should and shouldn't be doing according to the Jedi Codes/Rules. He does that all through the Jedi Quest books.
    The problem is that he doesn't feel them in his heart.
    Maybe it's because he wasn't brought up in the temple and basically brainwashed (for lack of a better term) from the time that he was a youngling.
    Maybe it's because of his unusual stength in the Force--it overwhelms what he "knows" should be true.
    Maybe it's an inherent flaw in his character. There have been several Jedi brought up in the temple that turned. ;)

    See, I'm probably going to get flogged for this, but I choose to accept some of the accounts ritten in books and comics and reject probably most. My reasoning is yeah Lucas is supposed to O.K. these stories, but I'm sure he doesn't have the time to read them all and thats probably where he has one of his lackies doing his "homework" for him. He is the supreme creator of the SW universe...it exists in his mind and he was kind enough to share it...and make a bundle in the process. There are just someauthors who tend to screw things up. Sometimes I read things and think...Han wouldn't do or say that. Half of the stuff written about the EU had to be rewriten or have some sort of spin placed on it due to the prequels...example: Owen and Buru were explained by some author way back when as Obi Won's relatives...

    Well it would have to be Luke, being the best and all.

    Yeah, in the original novelization of A New Hope, which Lucas put his name on, even though it's well known fact that it was ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster. This was back in the day, before Lucas was too busy to do his homework.

    The problem my friends and I have with the prequels is that they try to interconnect waaaay too much. That and they ignore some pretty obvious things established in the books (and I'm this huge novel nerd). I've ranted a billion times about things he could have done, but the best illustration is how, in three days, Lauren, Liz and I wrote three entirely new storylines for the prequels, and they don't contradict anything. And this is during winter term theatre, when my friends all had either 6 or 8 hours of rehearsal every day, plus we had to prepare dinner for who knows how many people, and had to deal with a fairly major injury on top of that.

    Not that that was way off-topic or anything. :) We just pulled the scripts out to work on once more today.
