IGN's Top 100 Star Wars Characters

Cuz there ain't enough Star Wars threads here.

http://www.ign.com/star-wars-characters/index.html

Number 97 should be #1!

(The top 20 aren't up yet as of this writing)

Re: IGN's Top 100 Star Wars Characters

So have they not revealed the top ten? My Trekkie-ism is showing due to my lack of interest in anyone below that number. Prediction:

10) The Emporer
9) Obi-Wan Kenobi
8) C3PO
7) Yoda
6) Chewbacca
5) Leia Organa
4) Han Solo
3) Luke Skywalker
2) Darth Vader
1) R2-D2

Anakin is # 1 quadrillion, just above you know who at absolute last place!

Re: IGN's Top 100 Star Wars Characters

That list has an oddly specific subject matter, yet a sample so large as to be virtually worthless. They couldn't have gone for the top ten or twenty so that the choices carried a little more weight?

And I hate lists where you have to flip over to a new page for each individual entry. I'm not flipping through 100 pages. Just bunch them into groups of ten to twenty or put the whole list on one page. I suspect it has something to do with getting more page views and/or ad revenue, most likely.

That being said, at least it has some cool pics.

Jar Jar should be number one just to fuck with the fans.

I was glad to see two Marvel characters included on the list.

Me three. Whoever came up with the idea of doing lists like that should roast in hell.

Han and Vader are tied for first place for me. However, there are many cool SW characters.

Same here. Looked at a few before deciding this could take hours to read.

That list is shit, it might as well be "list of random characters who appeared in some Star Wars media sometime".

Grevious is listed at 37, above HK-47 but below Rex from the Clone Wars cartoon.

Started at 100 but got to 99 and then skipped to 40. Oola only got 99...but she got a boob out.

Tarkin at 33...heresy! Ackbar at 28! Amidala 25, Wedge 24...This list makes baby Jedi cry.

Kyle Katarn at 22...should be lower purely because of how some sections of the fan base have made him the Chuck Norris of Star Wars.

I think the top 10 will be an all movie affair, pretty much Termis' list but not in that order. I'm going to see if I can guess the highest place EU character...I'm going to go for Revan from KOTOR. I think he'll come 13th, behind Boba Fett at 12 and unlucky Lando at 11th.

Wedge is outside the top 20 and they included Wattoo. immediate List Fail.

and if Kal Skirata's not in the top 20 it's an even bigger Fail.

Re: IGN's Top 100 Star Wars Characters

Too many random one-shot characters nobody actually cares about, no Quinlan Vos or Ulic Qel-Droma (so far), Cade Skywalker at only #84...

This list sucks.
