    The Star Wars franchise has lots of memorable characters, no doubt about it. The SW extended universe is a big space.

    There are lots of characters in the extended universe that I know little or nothing about - I may have only heard their names.

    So if you could pick just one character, which one is your favourite?

    Old Ben Kenobi.

    Sir Alec Guiness did a great job portraying the Jedi Master.

    This is seconded by Qui Gon Jinn. The best 2 characters of the entire prequel trilogy were killed off in the first film.

    My fav character is Darth Vader, with Luke Skywalker a close second.

    I like Vader's character arc in the original trilogy. He obviously starts as a bad guy in A New Hope. He is The Empire's thug who gets stuff done. Then Lucas really ups the ante in The Empire Strikes Back - Vader is seriously bad, killing his own officers if they screw up or otherwise displease him.

    Then at the end of Return of the Jedi, he finally steps in to save his own son from The Emperor. A redemption, of sorts.

    "Now, my son, leave me"

    "No, I can't leave you - I came here to save you"

    "You already have, Luke"

    The giant sea porpoise with the huge ball sack tits that produce blue milk. Without this character, Luke dies of starvation on the island, and the entire story line falls apart. He wouldn’t be there to watch Rey naturally become a Jedi in a week, without any training. Such an important character.

    R5-D4: if he didn't blow his 'motivator', then Luke and R2 don't meet....

    Leia, nice to see a woman be more than someone mewling in the corner.

    I like Rose Tico. Just a normal woman, with no character arc, inadvertently consuming 1/3 of the film’s time, stifling all of Finn’s plans, and finally reminding us that if you kill all of your enemies, they win.
