    Where's Galen? I would probably vote for him because of how he was protecting his family, and he made the Death Star (except for all those fixes the fixers will have to do when you compare it to Ep. 2, with the Geonosians.) I also liked his relationship with Jyn, and was super disappointed that he died.

    Sorry, lists are limited to 10 entries only.... it would be a nice upgrade if the admins could improve this limit...

    And of course Raddus is the main character of the movie, so no way I would remove him to add Galen. :)

    For me, my top 3 would be:

    K-2SO
    Jyn Erso
    Chirrut Ímwe

    I love K2 in this, he looks great, a changed droid, a serious but funny character.

    Having watched RO a dozen times now, it's just maddening to choose a favorite character. I think I have it down between Jyn, Cassian, Galen, and Krennic.

    Legacy characters don't count, and Raddus simply ascends beyond petty character lists. As for the other new RO characters, I still like them and I find them to be fantastic.

    Today, I finally watched Rogue One for the second time! And I'm casting my vote (easily) for Jyn. She simply had the most depth, making her the most interesting. Krennic would be my second choice. After that, I don't know; the other characters were all serviceable, but I never really got invested in them.

    I had to say K2.

    Second is Chirrut or Baze. Third is Cassian or Jyn

    I do like my good guys to have a palpable sense of humour.
    Noble, engaging..with a competently written dry wit and glint in their eye...
    So K2 and Chirrut were my favourites in Rogue One. Impossible to choose between the two...

    I think its tough to pick one.

    Of the protagonists I think Jynn carries the film very well. I don't necessarily go along with all the criticism of the supporting team. To me its no different a set of characters to any military sabotage or heist film like say the Guns of Navarone or The Italian Job, you have a focal point character or 2 and the rest are there along for the adventure but given less focus or development. That aspect does not affect my viewing enjoyment at all and in the case of Rogue One I came away (in particular) wanting to see more of The Guardians of the Whills and Jedha and also what adventures Cassian was up to before Rogue One. To me thats the sign that I enjoyed it and the characters.

    Of the 3 main antagonists I think that Tarkin has got better for me the more I've viewed it. I like Krennic too, even though his role in the film is one of failure and being undermined by Tarkin I enjoyed Vaders small appearances and maybe that goes without saying, but not in the same way as the originals, the corridor scene is really good though eben though all it does is highlight his ruthlessness.

    On a slightly different note, visually I love Edrio Two Tubes, (great design) and a lot of the background extras on Jedha and The Ring of Kafrene. A job well done there for me.

    Krennic, with K2 a close second.

    Brilliantly cast, well-written character that really adds depth to a role with the Empire that previously had not existed via the many throwaway admirals/captains in the OT.

    What's impressive here is that there's not one runaway standout character. 5-6 of them are all popular. Shows a very strong ensemble cast.

    That's true. I do think that the performances weren't up to par for a few of the mains - namely Luna - but the supporting cast is as strong as any SW film, I think.

    Personally, I believe Luna gave the best performance of any Star Wars cast member to date (with Jones and Ahmed right behind him). I appreciate differing opinions, but am consistently baffled at some fan perspectives on Luna, who is widely considered one of the best actors of his generation. Did his accent throw people off? I don't get it.

    I second this, he's easy one of my favorite actors from the franchise now (if not favorite), his performance was exceptional. For example: when he had to shoot his informant, when he first received orders from Draven, every scene on Eadu, his reaction to Kay's death, final scenes. He just knows how to convey emotions in such a natural way. And he's been great in every movie I've seen with him.
    Maybe it is the accent, but I think that's what makes him so unique and I love him for it.

    Amen. I think by most objective standards of the acting profession, he gave an excellent performance. I can understand some folks not relating/ responding to his character, but it’s pretty much a fact that his acting is really good.
