    Sometimes characters are criticized harshly and frequently for different reasons, deserved or undeserved. Too silly, underwhelming, whiney, inconsistent, too political, bad CGI, lost potential, geared towards a different age group, or maybe just missed the mark.

    ...but....you kind of like them. Heck, maybe you love them!

    Which character to do you like despite other fans having a different opinion? Why/How/Who? Tell your tale of your favorite character from the Planet of Misfits and why you love them despite what others say!

    (Sticking with live-action characters only.)


    *I use the term loosely. Generally referring to characters who got a lot of fan dislike or flack (whether deserved or undeserved) and list does not necessarily represent my opinion. Does not = actual actors/actresses, just characters. Does not mean the character is necessarily bad, but that they did get a lot of criticism from fans. : )

    All of the characters you listed are unpopular? I don't think so, some are I agree, because to many fans (not the regular audience) complained.

    The only one that I don't know is Lumby so I won't talk about him. Concerning the others:
    - Jar Jar Binks: The kids loved him, my wife and sister too. He doesn't bother me at all. Lot of fans hates him, not me.

    - Admiral Holdo - Great character, great actress. I Love Laura Dern!

    - Unkar Plutt - Why so?

    - Rose Tico - Great addition to the Star Wars universe. Kind of sad that her role was diminished in TROS.

    - DJ - Benicio del Toro is always good. I like DJ in TLJ with that slogan of Don't Joint.

    - L3 37 - Didn't even know she was unpopular.

    - Zam Wessel - She is such a cool charater. The Obi Wan's detective, Jango e Wessel are probably the only things that I like in AOTC.

    - Boss Nass - Don't think he is unpopular.

    Well, I will vote for Holdo because she is a great character with a strong message and a fina sacrifice.

    I voted for Holdo, because I really think most the criticism of that character isn't legitimate story criticism but actually sexism.

    I've long thought, however, that Jar Jar is underrated. I think he's a fine character but that Lucas used him in TPM to poor affect, with the fart jokes and all.

    I voted for Zam Wessell. I've always thought she was severely underutilized in both AotC and the EU content set prior to it. She was in the Bounty Hunter game, but that's about it that I can recall off the top of my head (besides a cameo in the Boba Fett YA series). I mean, a changeling bounty hunter that worked with Jango Fett? There's a lot of potential there!

    I voted for Admiral Holdo. I really enjoyed her in Leia: Princess of Alderaan and in TLJ. I know some people didn't care for the character, but I thought her sacrifice in TLJ was pretty phenomenal, plus Laura Dern is awesome.

    Just imagine a film or animated cyberpunk tv series (I mean hand drawn panels not that CG blast) with DJ as the protagonist and a synthwave/darkwave soundtrack. ;)



    On a tangent, I have recently discovered witch house (Russian witch house is the best). Any kind of scene with travels to the astral plane or otherwise of a metaphysical nature would be best to use this.

    EV-9D9, simply because she appeals to my masochistic tendencies.

    Jar Jar!
    As a child watching The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar was always funny. Yeah. Fight me.
