    Star Wars: Who were you?

    Most people I know who watched any of the Star Wars movies had a character they most wanted to be like. As a kid it was great for me. I had a Darth Vader costume.

    Who was your pick? Any special memories associated with that?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I was an undersized, naive, little white kid sheltered from the excitement out in BFE. I basically WAS Luke Skywalker! I really wanted to be Han Solo.

    I don't know for sure about when I was younger. Unfortunately the older I get the more I would have fit right into character without makeup.

    I voted for Luke Skywalker but I would have voted for Boba Fett or Darth Maul. Maul was one bad ...

    Never seen any of them, but I pick whatever guy Samuel L. Jackson played.

    I think much of his appear comes from the urban legends about his action figure with the alleged kid-choking missile backpack.

    Easy to say, now. But there was a lot of time in-between those 2nd and 3rd films, during which Fett was a mysterious and potent adversary

    And no one messes with a guy who names his stealthy ship "Slave 1"

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Doesn't mean you don't have a character you wouldn't want to be.
