Hamill's Joker >> Luke

How hot is it inside a tauntaun?

Just enough to get Luke warm.

Always loved Luke, not that there is anything wrong with that.

The deleted scenes make it pretty clear why he wanted to go to Tosche Station so badly.

He was a "whiny biatch" in the time he was on Tattooine. That was a small part of the movie and he stopped when they got to the Death Star.

And he wasn't nearly as bad as his father, whose only good moments on screen were the two when he was half-naked and sweating.

If Lucas had been smart enough to skip The Phantom Menace and instead have a proper Clone Wars movie in between II and III, Anakin might be remembered much better.  The Clone Wars cartoon seems to be the only place that made any attempt to make Anakin an actual hero and justify the comrade-in-arms feeling he and Obi-Wan supposedly share in the movies.

He killed the tens of thousands innocent contractors on the death star. The man is a gottdamn monster, and therefore an awesome badass.

So.... Cracked.com became famous online for making top ten lists of stuff and writing witty, insightful, humorous commentary. Buzzfeed seems to have found a way to get the same kind of traffic with about 1% of the effort. They don't even write anything, they just think up a list and then find pictures to match them. They're pretty much the lowest form of clickbait.

I'm going to disagree with you there.  He blew up the First Death Star, the one that had been completed.  No civilian contractors.  Or rather, no civilian construction workers.  Lando and Wedge destroyed the Second Death Star, which was still under construction, and thus, still had the civilian construction contractors.

However, I'm still going to say that there were civilians on both Death Stars.  I am a military brat.  I lived on Air Force bases until I was 12.  The military doesn't run the stores on base.  When you go to the Base Exchange (called the BX by everyone on base, and it's just a small store where you can buy everything, just like a small Walmart, and since there are families that live on the bases, they even cater to civilian needs as well including toys, video games and lingerie), the person who rings up your purchases isn't a soldier, it's a civilian.  Expand this out to the Death Star, the Empire isn't going to train people to be soldiers in the Imperial Military, then put them to work inside a store on the Death Star.  Even if there are no families on the Death Star, you'd still have to have businesses on the Death Star to keep your off duty officers happy, like bars, restaurants, theaters and such, no different than on military bases.  So there were still civilian casualties on the First Death Star.  Second Death Star had more civilian casualties, Ewok genocide, and we did see some Imperial politicians hanging out with the Emperor on the second Death Star, so it's possible that Palpatine wasn't the only polticial casualty as well.  It's quite possible that the only political casualties with the First Death Star were high ranking Imperial Officers with aspirations to political offices or appointments, like Tarkin.

fusillade762: WTF does that even mean??


There's an article online (I don't feel like looking it up) of what would really happen to a person if they spent a night inside an animal like that.  I can't remember if they used a bear or a camel or what but I guess it would kill you even if your head was sticking out?  I don't remember all it said, but I assume that's what they're getting at.

I'm pretty sure Han says something like it's to keep him warm while he's getting the shelter set up.  So no, he wouldn't be inside the tauntaun all night, or even inside it at all.

Well, they show him shoving Luke inside it, if even momentarily.

But I didn't write the article there, Jumpy!

Luke gets a bum rap (he is no Solo). He is a pretty solid character EU and all.

Depends. In the Navy on the bases the PX (or Post eXchange) is usually ran by civilians but on the ships there is a store ran by the SK's (shopkeepers) so is it a base or a big ass ship? I'd say it's a space station so in the first movie probably ran by Imperial personnel and not civilians. Same thing could be said for everything else you were talking about. A carrier is pretty much a floating city and there are no civilians onboard.

Wedge kicked ass on every level, and was the only character to be involved in all of the major battles in all three movies (and yes, there were only 3 movies). Too bad that Michael Stackpole wasted the opportunity to build upon the character and instead decided to shiat out that terrible series of Rogue Squadron books to promote his tabletop Star Wars RPG character instead.

This.

We simply don't know enough.  From what we see, a fully military staffing is more likely(or at least makes less assumptions).  Civilians functioning directly under the empire wouldn't go over so well.  Vader force chokes his own officers, but besides that, can you imagine how the civilians would get treated by the military(as is in the movies)?  More like slaves if there were any.

dude went toe to toe with a badboy poonhound for a hawt princess, kissed her, and only didn't seal the deal on account he found out she was his sister. Otherwise it would have been all Force up in dat biatch. Meanwhile, his dad spent every day from his 6th birthday on jacking it to a chick that hadn't been within a parsec of a strong dick. granted, she was freaky, and got off to his dear penthouse snuff porn, but luke mastered swag and yolo

Game set match: compare the raid on Jabba's palace to Anakin finally getting around to delivering a mother's day card. Luke took care of things like a boss. both of them get retard advice from Yoda, luke knows how to do the right thing.

Eh, the Rogue Squadron books are pretty good.. after the first one, anyway.

Wraith Squadron was pretty cool.  Fighter pilots chosen first for their commando skills, and recruited mostly from the pilots who were about to be kicked out of the service for various problems.
