    What are your hot Star Wars takes?
    For those who may not know, a hot take is something often seen is contrarian or said to draw heat.
    So, for example, "I don't like the PT" isn't a hot take because it's a fairly common thought and one widely circulated. Same with things like "I don't like TLJ".

    This isn't to be a flame war or anything. But a place for people to express their opinions cleanly

    My personal hot takes:

    Kylo Ren is the most complex and interesting character in the franchise.
    Mark Hamill in TLJ is the singular best performance in the franchise.
    The score for Rogue One is absolutely amazing and is seriously not given enough love and my favorite outside of ANH and ESB.
    As much as I love it, ANH gets pretty damn boring in parts.

    So let's have 'em.

    Here we go... shields up.
    (might I suggest a gentlemen and gentlelady's agreement that no negative ratings be issued in this thread, outside of trolling?)

    -Agreed about the Rogue One score. Williams is great, but I enjoyed how fresh it felt while still being memorable (which Solo's rarely was for me)

    - Han's "Solo" name reveal really wasn't that bad. Having a rogue type character named Solo was silly from the beginning, so revealing it as being intentionally descriptive is kind of less stupid than if he'd just happened to be called Solo at birth.

    - Scout troopers are not the coolest trooper design

    - A-wings are a really uninspired design, and TIE Interceptors are overrated.

    - Ewoks at Endor really wasn't that bad, and it's cringey to try and pretend Star Wars is too "mature" for stuff like that

    - Gungans are cool, too. They're not all like Jar Jar. Also...

    - The Battle of Naboo is actually pretty cool

    -The Empire Strikes Back probably doesn't make it into my top 5

    - Count Dooku is the best Prequel villain (aside from maybe Palpatine)

    -The original trilogy has aged pretty well, but most of what I've seen of Legends feels horribly outdated now.

    - When it comes to board games, Armada is cooler than X-Wing, and Imperial Assault is better than Legion

    - The new Battlefront games should focus on making the games playable completely offline in all game modes. Pandemic did it in two-thousand-freaking-four, don't come at me with that "we can't program AI" nonsense.

    - TCW and Rebels are great, but I prefer Rebels by a landslide

    - That being said, the phrase "there are no filler episodes" in Rebels isn't entirely true. Inserting an easter egg from a previous episode into a new one doesn't mean the previous episode's 20 minute runtime actually did anything to move the story forward.

    -But that's all right, because "filler" is okay sometimes

    -The 2008 Clone Wars series is better than the anime-style one. From what I can tell, this actually is a hot take and hardcore fans actually do prefer the 2003ish one, but I honestly don't know why.

    - People's weird attitudes with the "wasted badass" trope like Boba Fett are harmful to the series, because they discourage creative character design. We've seen from the very first movie's Cantina Scene that Star Wars is cool when it has a ton of awesome looking background characters. They actually don't all need to do something meaningful.



    I'll probably cook up some more later

    My hot takes:

    Cad Bane is a boring character and he's too explicitly "wild west" for Star Wars.

    A New Hope is objectively the best Star Wars film.

    People find Jake Lloyd's Anakin annoying not because it's a bad performance, but because he actually acts like a nine year old and not like a "Hollywood" nine year old.

    Haha, that's interesting. I would have a hot take that he's maybe my favorite prequel-era character.


    Yas, preach! Absolutely this.

    I might also add that his dialogue in general didn't help. You had a nine year old being a nine year old, but spouting off Lucas's words. It almost creates an uncanny valley effect.

    Here's another one:

    -Star Wars has elements of fantasy, space opera, and science fiction. Don't jump down people's throats for not labeling it the way you do.

    Anakin and Obi's bad hair are ACTUALLY the worst things about TPM and AoTC.

    Not very many Bothan's actually died for the DSII plans, they were part of the TRAP!

    Jar Jar is great.

    I'm right, you're wrong, everything I say about Star Wars is fact and your opinion doesn't count. ;) hehehe

    -John William's score for the sequels is the best he's written since Indiana Jones.

    -Empire is the worst of the OT.

    -The Last Jedi has many of the same problems as Empire (poor pacing, a B plot that is significantly less interesting than the A plot, underdeveloped masters of antagonists) but TLJ is a little better.

    -Hayden Christensen and Jake Lloyd aren't bad actors.

    -I like Ewoks

    -I like Jar Jar

    -I'm excited for episode IX

    @YetAnotherSuperweapon welcome to the Cantina!

    Hot takes...Star Wars is terrible with romance. INCLUDING Han and Leia (it really hasn't aged well).

    Rose is a great character and quite refreshing in Star Wars. I just don't think her pairing with Finn was a good one (Finn's good with anyone in terms of chemistry, but something was missing there...). And I say this as a huge Finn fan.

    Rey isn't a Mary Sue, but she's also not the most interesting person in the ST to me, but maybe it's because I can't relate to her at all and I find her relationship to Kylo to be incredibly...Forced (heh).

    The ST had the best ensemble of minor/supporting characters.

    Star Wars Resistance Season 1 is better than Star Wars Rebels Season 1.

    Okay here we go:

    -I really liked jaded Luke in TLJ. Nice to see him with these character flaws.

    -Why does everyone love Boba Fett so much? He looks cool but based off of the OT he was just a background character.

    -ROTJ was the perfect movie in my mind when I was a kid, still love it.

    -I love ANH but I agree, it can be boring in some spots.

    -I find it hard to get into TCW, but I liked Rebels for the most part.

    -Kylo Ren is probably the most complex main character in the entire saga. Luke gained some of that similar depth in TLJ as well.

    Last Jedi is the best Star Wars movie. Rey > Luke. Solo was a garbage movie that was both a waste of time and resources. New Star Wars books are pretty poor excuses of literature with a precious few exceptions. Yellow lightsabers are the coolest. Rey's theme is cooler than the Imperial March theme. Old Republic mmo is the best star wars game of all time.

    seems a lot of people are posting somewhat "safe" hot takes.
    let's pour some gas on this fire:

    ReyBen is not that big of a deal.
