I think we should add a poll to the thread: 'your favourite Star Wars General'.

I think Veers for me. No nonsense, gets the job done, manages not to fail Darth Vader (and therefore survive unthrottled).

If he'd been on Endor he'd have stomped those Ewok bastards.
My General 😍

Hayden was much better in ROTS, not so much in AOTC. I would never have started the story with Anakin as a child.
That had to be the case though for Lucas to get his midichlorians in!

I thought Hayden was horrendous in AOTC. But he did pick it up in ROTS as you say. But that film belongs to McDiarmid as Palps. He was great and elevated it to something that bordered the respectable.

...at least until he went full ham sandwich as the disfigured Emperor. As the Chancellor however, I agree he was terrific.
I quite like that ham sandwich :D

but yeah he ruled as the Chancellor. In fact I think it's a pity we never got more of him in the OT as the Emperor.

Always so much emphasis on Vader as the bad guy.

I totally agree, that sort of thing sickens me. I quite like her as a character but her and Finn were not really given much to play with.
Agreed, No call for the abuse on Social Media and I often wonder if to post comments that it Required you to display your real name; would so many be so vocal. I personally didn’t like/dislike her character as I dont think her character brought anything to the story and unfortunately was in the weakest part of the film for me (casino planet) but this isn’t the fault of the actress and these idiots abusing her are morons.

Its been the same with Game of Thrones, Captain Marvel recently although Brie didn’t help herself when she singled out a large part of the audience with her white male comments. Unfortunately you have to be so careful with what you say on Twitter if you are a Celebrity but when you are a regular punter, you can say anything you want without real repercussion.
