    Shmi. Heart of gold and unselfish.

    Leia, with Shmi as a close second. I could even go as far as to say Shmi is tied. Leia is outwardly badass, Shmi is quietly badass.

    Going with Anakin. I found his story and his turn to the Dark Side out of sheer desperation (which is pretty relatable; not the killing kids part, obviously) the most interesting out of all of them. Plus, he's the one we get to see show off his Jedi skills most often!

    Leia for me. Luke a close second.

    Always resilient, hopeful, and inspiring. Never gave in to anyone or anything.

    Anakin for sure, but that may very well change depending on how Episode IX goes

    It has to be Leia. She's the one who through it all kept fighting, even after adoptive parents were killed and her son fell to the Dark Side subsequently killing her husband. She didn't have a Jedi Order to tie her down.

    All of them.

    Except for “One Note Ren”.

    Oh, Shmi gets a very special mention. That woman needs her own movie before August gets too old.

    As a fictional character:
    It was Luke. Now it is Anakin.

    As a good person:
    Shmi. No contest. Qui Gon wasn't smart enough to figure out all those Midichlorians came from her. He should have tested the minute she told him she could conceive on her own without even trying. Too caught up on Anakin's father: Red Herring (aka Snoke. And before you say that theory sucks ... who killed Snoke? Ben the crazy kid that can't help killing every relative in his personal space. Snoke got half the midichlorians in the divorce settlement.)

    It has to be Leia or Shmi. I give Leia the edge because she's actively trying to change the galaxy for the better, and without being a control freak.

    Anakin and Luke are too flawed, on opposite extremes, even if both get it right in the end.

    Bail and Breha did a heck of a job on raising Leia

    Leia has Chewie problems.
    Walking Carpet.
    No medal.
    No hug.

    Getting Luke killed so she could visit her dealer's planet.

    Luke (real Luke, not TLJ "Luke"). Anakin would definitely be second. Really, though, I like all the Skywalkers.

    Define "Best"?

    Mentally Strongest - Leia
    Best at Destroying the Jedi? - Anakin
    Best at redeeming Dad? - Luke
    Best at giving Birth to the chosen one? Shmi
    Best at being conflicted? - Ben

    I guess it depends on what "best" means here but I went with Luke since he is my favorite Skywalker.

    Leia is awesome, but I have to go with the slightly-more-awesome Luke.

    Best as in the most interesting to watch is Anakin. Best as in being a good, kind-hearted person is Shmi.

    Yep. I love Luke, but Anakin is the most important character in the saga.

    I really like Anakin and his entire character arc. But I gotta say Luke. Selfless, genuine, heart of gold. Anakin is my favorite character in SW though

    Luke by a mile but mostly because of the OT although I did like some of the stuff they did with him in TLJ
