Star Wars is a beloved series not because of its space battles, nor its lightsaber battles, nor its Force chokes/lightning: it’s beloved because of its characters. The major difference between the prequels and the original trilogy was that throughout the duration of Episode I, II and III, there wasn’t a single character the audience wanted to root for. Aside from perhaps Obi-Wan Kenobi and, lamentably, Jar-Jar Binks, every character’s emotional spectrum ranged from “stern” to “super stern,” with there being very little middle ground. Even Yoda had been transformed from a map muppet into a rational diplomat.
Throughout the course of the original trilogy and now The Force Awakens, we were introduced to a colorful cast of characters so memorable that even if their time on screen was only fleeting, they’ve still probably got a fan page somewhere on the Internet.

With that being said, we’ve created a list of Star Wars characters who we feel deserve their own very own video game, noting why we believe they deserve their starring game role and how a developer could pull it off. Here are our top 10 picks:
