    Luke looking out at the horizon reminiscent of him in his youth is one of the most poignant moments of the entire saga so far.

    Honorable mention for that Ewok lying on the ground with the John Williams score kicking in as their friend tried to wake them up.

    Yoda's death hit me hard. That was the first time I had seen a major character die. Obi Wan died but immediately sort of came back to life by talking to Luke. Tarkin was sort of a main character but he was so completely unsympathetic that it had no effect on me. Yoda's death was a big deal, followed by Vader.

    It was a huge toss up between Duchess Satine and Kanan. I ended up choosing Kanan since it was such a rough time in the Galaxy. One of the last few Jedi dies and leaves an Apprentice to deal with everything pretty much on his own. Yes there was Ahsoka, but they did not have the same style of relationship. Duchess on the other hand - it hit hard because she was the ONE entity that would have moved Obi-wan from his Stoicism with the Jedi Order.

    Great poll!

    Honestly, I think the clear winner was left off this list. K2-SO is easily the most emotional death scene, at least in the films. The runners up, in my opinion, are Satine and Kanan.

    Star Wars deals with death alot, but you rarely feel a deep emotional connection with it. The major deaths in the series--Qui-Gon, Padme, Obi-Wan, Han, etc--deeply affect the characters, but the films kind of hold the audience at a distance from them. It's mythology, and in mythology you don't always have a deep emotional participation with the characters.

    But K2? That was heartbreaking.

    I know we didn't see it but......... what about the younglings?!?!



    =p I'd have to say it's between Vader and Kanan that hit me the hardest. I would've said Han had the internet not ruined his death the day before I went to watch TFA, so it was expected. But then again, losing your second favorite character is always hard.

    For me I'm going to say Luke Skywalker. He has always been one of my favorite characters and while I knew it was a possibility that he could die in TLJ, I didn't think it was going to actually happen and that hit me hard. Plus the last scene with him and Leia hit me in the feels.

    Honorable mention also goes to the younglings. They never stood a chance against Darth Vader and his clones.

    This is a really difficult question to answer and I wanted to vote for more than one person but in the end I voted for kanan. I think mostly because how his death was handled , the build up and foreshadowing beforehand , the acceptance of his destiny and what happened during the sacrifice and afterwards. I am very attached to the Rebels characters and how their story arcs developed (that’s why I feel Star Wars will work great as a series because you can develop characters more and can go into greater depth )but also Kanan symbolised certain things for me -he was the last Padawan of the Jedi order , he was young and a victim of war and he selflessly gave up his life to save his family . Am not saying the other deaths weren’t noble or sad in Star Wars but the way it was handled in Rebels was just epic . Moreover with Vader , Luke , Han and Obi wan in particular - though they were noble sacrifices I felt like they had had their time , that it was the natural order of things and they had lived their lives and were coming to the end of their life cycles but Kanan willingly gave up his young life for others . He found his path and he knew what was coming but he didn’t stray . He accepted his fate and when it came he did what he had to do . It was heartbreaking to watch and haunting but kanan by his actions conveyed the meaning of what it meant to really be a Jedi .Selfless to the end (kanan)
    And now am welling up again just thinking about it :(

    Tough, but I went with Luke in TLJ. Such an emotional and powerful final scene for a legend of the galaxy.

    i was just watching the director and the jedi again and that whole sequence when they're filming his goodbye to leia had me in tears.
    by the time he actually passes, i'm prepared for it nowadays, but the goodbye still gets to me. : ' o )

    I always thought Obi-Wans was the saddest, and even more so as I got older.

    I saw Ol' Ben disappear in 1977, and knew that there was so much that he wasn't telling Luke...we all did, but then just to have him expire THAT FAST seemed like a waste, AND THEN seeing the PT and everything that he went through just to get offed by Vader with such little effort...what a loss.

    Only an Obi-Wan series (or something of the like) will help somewhat console me at this point.

    For me it was Han. The look on his face when Kylo ignited the Lighysaber; first utter shock and then acceptance. I choke just thinking about it.

    Anakin’s like “you knew didn't you? About immortality.” Obi, “I told you, ‘strike me down and I will become more powerful than you csn possibly imagine’.” Anakin, “I thought you were bluffing, but when your body vanished on contact with my saber, I was like whaaaaat?!” :p

    Saddest death of all was Padme. Apart from the music and dreary visuals, even happy-go-lucky Jar Jar was left looking depressed. And that necklace she was holding...

    Han Solo’s death didn’t make me feel sad. I was more confused as to 1) how Kylo could have ignited the lightsaber when both of them were holding it sideways and 2) why Kylo said “thank you.”
