Favorite Planet in SW lore? (in game or not?)

What is your favorite planet in Star Wars lore? Whether it is in SWTOR or not.

Personally, I like Geonosis. I prefer the red-rock type desert planet to the yellow-sand type desert like Tatooine, and the Geonosians are really interesting to me. (On the side, I'd like a Geonosian Companion Bioware.) I think that the Battle of Geonosis scene was AotC's main redeeming virtue.

In terms of atmosphere (scenery, music , etc) I'd vote for Alderaan. I thought the Nightmare Lands in Voss were very well-done, also...the eeriness was palpable.

I like Alderaan because a lot of the scenery is stunning to look at. But lore wise I'd go with Tython because that is where the first Jedi where created and, its the Jedi's home world is and its also where the Jedi temple is at.

Dagobah. I know it's a swamp with no civilations or cities but it looks awsome to me. Plus having the dark side cave and Yoda there is awsome. If it was in TOR I would visit it often. Weather I got to see Yoda or not.(Yes I know Yoda is not alive in any shape or form in TOR.)

Though passion I gain strength. Though strength I gain power.
Though power I gain victory.
In victory my chains are broken.

Kashyyyk. More specifically, the Shadowlands on Kashyyyk. My favorite planet in KotOR.

Got to be Dathomir. A savage and almost Amazonian world of monsters and powerful force witches. Love to see this given life in TOR.
It would be an opportunity to demonstrate unheard of force powers as well, given it's isolated nature.
