Why So Great? The highest 'group entry' on this list, the Stormtroopers are the lifeblood of the Star Wars films. Without them, none of this would be possible because:
a) they look so ice-cool they make the good guys look even better by default; and
b) they can't actually shoot for shit, allowing Luke, Han and co. to live to fight another day.
Character Trivia: A battalion of Stormtroopers consists of 820 soldiers.
Behind The Scenes: Designed by Ralph McQuarrie, the actual armour and helmet were sculpted by Brian Muir and Liz Moor.

The whole time I was reading this list, I kind of expected the top two to be the other way round. Han is definitely the best character though, so I'm happy.

Although he's not the greatest of characters in the saga, Watto still definitely deserves a place on this list. If he had swapped places with Jar Jar in The Phantom Menace, it would have improved it significantly.

Good list, although Maul should be higher. Also, some excellent spelling on Peter Serafinowicz there.

Yes, a certain generation do recognise Mr. Bronson from Grange Hill. We also know he certainly wasn't the caretaker!! fact for you.. he was the French teacher

I think you'll find Mr Bronson was a teacher, not the caretaker!

And as far as Mace Windu's saber blade being purple.......it's that way because that's what color Samuel wanted! TRUE STORY.

Gotta love Samuel L Jackson =P not only did he get to have his favourite colour purple edged into Star Wars but also Unbreakable :)
Loving the trivia by the way :)

"Until the prequels, it was unclear if only humanoids could be Jedi" Yoda? He's not humanoid Total Film.

grievous coughs because Mace force crushed his chest in the clone wars prequel cartoon

i feel sad that i know this

Ok I know this is all down to personal choice etc etc but I honestly don't see why soooooo many go wet over Han Solo.
Ok i'm not saying he was a c**p character and that I didn't like him, because I did. But I honestly don't see why so many go weak at the knees over him.
I was more a Luke fan, I mean after all deep down it was in my eyes all about him in the beginning and it just happened that Luke and Obi stumbled across Solo in the bar.
Am I the only one who thinks like this? If so oh well.......queue the slating for my opinion by the geeks

Why isn't Jar Jar Binks in this list?
Apr 28th 2013, 11:57
There are absolutely no great prequel characters in Star Wars
Apr 28th 2013, 19:56
Oh, come on? Nien Nunb? That guy's worse than Jar Jar. Yeah, I said it!
Also, I learned that Panaka is the reason that Palpatine knew about Anakin and Padme's marriage.

General Grievous: "A six saber-wielding cyborg with a cough?"
Numeracy isn't your strong point, then?
May 5th 2013, 13:36
I feel very sorry that Reiji Matsumoto hasn't got listed lol

"Until the prequels, it was never clear if only humanoids could be Jedi"
Well don't I feel stupid now. I never realised Yoda was human...
