    I didn't include romances like Ani/Padme Ahoka/Lux and Satine/Obi

    Is there anyone that should have been here?

    I left out Artoo/3PO because their friendship is so iconic but I didn't want it to take away from other votes because of how iconic they are if that makes sense? Plus, their friendship extends well beyond the prequel era.

    I also wanted to include Rex/Ahsoka but a lot of people ship that as well. I do love their friendship a lot.

    Hey, man. Great topic! I would love to discuss it.

    Perhaps you can put "other" as an option in the poll. I think there are a lot of duo dynamics out there. For instance, only The Phantom Menace has Nute Gunray and Rune Haako, Maul & Palpatine, JarJar & Captain Tarpals/Boss Nass, Anakin & Kitser, Anakin & Watto, Qui-Gon/Padmé, etc. Even though I personally do not consider Clone Wars part of the prequels (which are just the movies for me), if you include Clone Wars it really increases the possible combinations even more. So I guess the 'other' option would really help people choose.

    I’m gonna have to go with the original Anakin and Obi Wan. TCW also helped with this fact

    I think you can still edit it or not? I have not made a poll before, haha, so I have no idea.

    On-topic: To me it is quite hard to choose. I really liked the Anakin & Watto dynamic, as it is a very interesting one. Watto is a slave owner, but he still cares about the Skywalkers to a certain degree. Yoda & Mace are epic too. I wish they would have deepened their relationship a bit more in Clone Wars. For instance by giving them a storyline together. To me they clearly were the main leaders of the Jedi Order, both wise and powerful.

    The Anakin and Obi-Wan dynamic is great in episode 3, but I always thought Obi-Wan was too hard on Anakin in episode 2. There was a broader purpose there by George Lucas, as was mentioned by Dave Filoni in a Disney Galleries episode of the Mandalorian. I think the Clone Wars really made their relationship better to the point that I love their dynamic in episode 3. Most importantly, I deeply believe Obi-Wan's heartbreaking "You were my brother, Anakin" at the end.

    This is my first poll and I am technologically challenged haha.

    Ewan acted that beautifully. That entire trilogy, he was phenomenal. I wish they had kept some of those deleted scenes that further demonstrated their brotherly dynamic.

    Yes Watto is complicated - he was so excited to see Ani in episode 2 but Ani clearly did not feel the same and felt no sadness leaving him. I wish Watto had expressed his care for Ani, it would have made him think more about his childhood and how it was not black and white.

    I think Jar Jar's tongue and Qui-Gon should have been there too. I'll see if I can edit it.

    Sorry for the double reply I forgot about Mace. His force abilities are underrated - and since they are already rated very high that is saying something. I wish we could have seen more into his training and his use of the dark side while remaining a Jedi. Unfortunately, he got too pulled into politics and was too clouded. I do wonder if he and Yoda had stepped back and remembered what the Jedi's purpose truly was. They are the most powerful duo. If they had seen what was happening they could have done so much. Ugh makes me sad.

    Ani and Obi have always had such a great bond. They are funny and efficient. I love seeing them together in the films and I love their relationship. For example, in the beginning of Ep 2 when they are in an elevator to see Padmé, they are talking to each other. You can feel their strong bond. Plus, they are so iconic now a days.
