    I suck at singling characters out. Honestly most of them would have been based on the EU/Legends content as it is. Like I’ll admit Boba Fett in the movies is sort of a joke. He looks cool but goes out like a goof. In Legends? He’s downright awesome.

    Mara Jade doesn’t even exist anymore! I didn’t always agree with the choices they made with her (final battle with Jacen was… weak IMO) but I loved her. Enough to still well up at her loss.

    In this new era/canon… I mean the Deathtroopers in R1 were pretty cool. They actually succeeded at a few things. Though they felt a bit toned down for Rebels.

    One character that never really changed? The one solid of them all! Chewie. In a way… that makes him pretty cool. Has anyone ever felt he did something out of character in the entire saga? Well ok he brushed past Leia but she dumped his BFF. Maybe he was miffed about the whole thing. 😛

    I hope I live to see the day where we go through a March and this silly contest doesn’t happen.
