    I interpreted this as "creature." Including "alien" is tough because there are so many to choose from. Of course the rancor is pretty cool. But I think the Empire creatures are creepy in a good way.

    Probably the Dewbacks in A New Hope, but the CGI used in the Special Edition didn't look all that good, especially when the sandtroopers are mounting or dismounting

    I shudder to think what happened to those stormtroopers... I guess that's what all those campfires were for.

    I don't understand why as I child I thought them cute and as a teen I hated them because of the whole teddy bear beating superior technological force thing anymore. As an adult I realized the Ewoks are one of the most savage species we are introduced to in all of Star Wars. They tried to eat Luke, Han, and Chewie. Lord knows what they were gonna do with R2(he was tied up too but I think they were gonna figure out that he was inedible pretty quick) and they may have eaten those stormtroopers and Imperial army soldiers and officers for all we know. I mean has it every been mentioned what happened to the imps that surrendered or were wounded but not mortally? I do not even remember seeing anything about this in the EU, even in the book Truce at Bakura which starts the same immediately after ROTJ while the Rebel Fleet is still in orbit around the forrest moon.

    That's one thing I like about them. Don't trust someone/something just because it's cute.

    I have always liked the taun tauns. Noble creatures they were.

    Found a pic someone did on google of a zombie ewok eating stormtrooper brains using his helmet as a bowl. I think it is a bit too graphic to post but that image will stick with me now.

    Ithorians (also known as a hammerhead), Mon Calamari, Jawas, Dugs, Watto's species, rancors, Hutts, the creatures the Gungans ride, and Kaminoans (I love how they move and they have such a unique look).

    Same here. I don't know which one is my favourite, but it's definitely one of these four: dewback, ronto, kaadu or eopie.

    Dewbacks and rontos. Both very very cool! Loved seeing more of them in the special editions!

    Forgot about the Amanin...quite possibly one of the most creepy, chilling, and vile looking alien species in any movie, but still awesome as hell.

    Varactyl. Boga had so much personality that she just stands out to me.

    Jabba the Hutt. An excellent character design, a disgusting persona and a brilliant sounding voice.

    If the TCW counts too, I'd say Hondo Ohnaka (a weequay). :)

    Gamorreans all the way! I felt sad for the one who was eaten as a kid. As a fan of fantasy I always loved their design, axe wielding brutish pigmen, love um.

    Creature I'd have to say Wampa

    Probably Rodians, they had a pretty far-out design, and really looked cool. I really liked the eyes and the suction cup fingers; a nice twist on the classic sci-fi alien.
