YES, I SO WENT THERE! Come at me. Alright post ya top 5 non-force user characters and give short explanations as to why, they can't also be any that became a force user at a later date....and go!

1. Han Solo- Wit, took on Vader, eluded Boba Fett for quite some time, has a wookiee as a co-pilot. Who needs the Force, when you got Solo luck?

2. Dash Rendar- I like his ship, plus he seems to be the only actual smuggler who doesn't join any faction and instead only works for the money.

3. IG-88 series- 4 sentient walking guns? Hell yes, not to mention they took over a planet without even stepping foot on it, their arsenal of weapons is pretty sweet too. A shame they didn't last long though...

4. Admiral Piett- The only officer aside from Veers, who didn't get choked by Vader. You know your a BA, when you can avoid a sith lord's wrath and reputation for killing officers for failure.

5. R2-D2- What can I say about the little blue astromech?....Hes got a ton of gadgets, a mobile swiss army knife and then some!

1. Han Solo- seems pretty obvious. He is the boss. And he's got a wookiee co-pilot
2. Grand Admiral Thrawn- almost took out the New Republic
3. Grievous- probably the greatest Jedi killer that wasn't Force-sensitive
4. Chewbacca- He can pull your arms off... need I say more
5. R2- he was there from the beginning

Got to throw in my two credits here.

I will admit this is all based on my personal enjoyment of characters and nothing else. Though I will say that my number one is a universal truth. I also know only a tiny bit about the Extended Universe, so take that for what it's worth.

1. Han Solo - The Man, The Myth, The Legend. Any Top 5 that does not include him is fundamentally flawed.

2. R2-D2 - Don't really like or dislike it, but it's there from the beginning and is an essential to the adventures.

3. Chewbacca - This needs no explanation.

4. Lando Calrissian - People aren't going to get this but Lando's one of the best and most complex of the SW characters, particularly the movie characters. He's also cool as hell but he's not as central to the story so he's only number 4.

5. Tie: Carth Onasi/T3-M4 - Couldn't choose between these two, which I admit is a cop-out. T3 is everything R2 is AND is armed. Carth Onasi is the (as far as I know) original double blasting gunslinger who seems to get a rep fro being a wuss despite being the best non-force using character in KoToR for mowing down scores of Sith Troopers.

Honorable Mentions: Ackbar, Thrawn, Wedge Antilles, and Mission Vao.

Is this, who is our opinion would be best in a fight, or just our favorite?

Cause if its favorite my list is this.

1. Giliad Pellaeon: The unwilling hero of the empire. Gil was thrust into a position of power that he had no ambition to hold and was given the monumental task of holding the empire together. He succeeded, despite all the setbacks and hardships and Yuzahn Vong, he persevered and held the new order he believed in together. All this without being a war criminal. I just find him inspiring (and yes, I was super mad when he was murdered, and even more super mad when Tahari got to weasel out of the death sentence she so heartily deserved)

2. Boba Fett: I loved Boba from the first moment I saw him in empire, almost all of my early star war reading material was about this guy. Not just a BA in BA armor doing BA things, Fett may be a coldhearted ahole to generally everybody, but he’s a coldhearted ahole with principles and a difficult past.

3.R2-D2: It is impossible to put into words how awesome R2 is. His presence is felt in a big way in all six movies and I’ve lost count of how many times he’s saved everyone’s behinds. Also he has the rare distinction of being the only astromech unit to destroy a planet and two super weapons at the same time.

4. HK-47: HK is cheerfully sociopathic, yet in a way that comes of as endearing instead of creepy. (Skadge should take lessons from this guy), is quite philosophical for a droid killing machine, and has unique speech patterns. He’s the real deal, and don't you meatbags forget it.

5. Ackbar: ITS A TRAP!!!!- I could add more, but do I really need to?

If is best in a fight, the list would be different.
I bow to no one and give service only for cause.
