Better than all of the prequels in my opinion, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was a hugely successful video game/book/comic that bridged the prequels and the original trilogy. It told the story of Darth Vader's dark apprentice, Starkiller, who struggled with the ideals of both the Jedi and the Sith as he was sent out on missions by Vader.
The story also introduced fans to Juno Eclipse, Starkiller's love interest, as well as a number of Jedi and would-be Sith, many of which would live on in the EU books.
The story of Starkiller was brilliant. It showed that even video games can have better tales than the Star Wars prequels and animated series.
Despite having long battles with her weight, bipolar disorder, and numerous addictions, Carrie Fisher keeps coming back. While her career hasn't reached the heights that it did during her time as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, Fisher has managed to have steady work and even wrote two popular books, Postcards From The Edge and her autobiography.
Of all of the major characters from the Star Wars universe, Fisher is the primary one to attend conventions and reach out to fans. I personally know people who have met her and they said that she was a wonderful lady to talk to.
Even though she has fallen back on her old addictions many times, Fisher remains a fighter and has embraced the fame she received from her work in the Star Wars universe.
Ahsoka Tano, Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, represents each and every child that has ever watched anything to do with Star Wars. She is the character we all want to be. She is the perfect representation of "gee whiz" in the Star Wars universe. When she battles characters such as Asajj Ventress, it is easy for youngsters and the young at heart to put themselves in her place.
She's the one character outside of Anakin and Luke Skywalker that we get to see age and develop form an adventurous child to a daring fighter and leader.
Voiced by Ashley Eckstein (who is also a credit to the Star Wars universe), Tano injects fun into the Clone Wars film and television series.
Her fate is one of the most talked about subjects among Clone Wars fans. In fact, I'd say that she's almost as popular as Captain Rex.
