Astro Edit - Watch how you word your threads DD. I'll leave this thread open for discussion about peoples favorite droids from the films or EU, including R2 :)

Yes, R2-D2 my be my one of my favourite characters. He is easily one of my favourite droids in the Star Wars Saga. R2-D2 does have some great screams in the trilogy. Go R2! :xp:

Yes, R2-D2 my be my one of my favourite characters. But this doesn't really belong here. It's spam.

Obi Wan, I'm going to have to give a friendly reminder not to moderate on our behalf.

I personally would love to discuss R2 and astromechs :)

R2 is definitely one of my fave characters EVAR. However, he does whine and scream like a wuss at times. R2 had some great screen time in ROTS, which was fun to see :)

You watch R4, obi wans astromech, both in AOTC(whne he was only a head), and in ROTS(when he was completed).

Getting shot at by Jango or even ripped apart by buzz droids didnt make him trill or whine as much as R2 would.

My other fave astro droid is one from EU, called "Whistler" He belongs to Jedi Knight Corran Horn, and definitely has a great spirit like artoo does. Theres a really cool chapter of an EU novel entirely focuing on him carrying out a mission :)

ALL HAIL R2-D2, the best character in the history of anything!

But if we're allowed commenting on non-movie droids... I have to mention HK-47 and T3-M4. I would be negligent as a KotOR fan if I didn't.

I really liked I-Five from shadow hunter but yeah R2 is the best.
And who doesnt love the little mouse droids!

shyte.... yeah, I forgot to include HK-47 :) That is one awesome bag o' bolts ! Speaking of kicka$$ droids, we cant leave out IG-88 and 4-LOM :)

The Spider droids in Jabba's Palace were very interesting. Theyre actually powered by the brains of monks ! In EU, Bib Fortuna actually gets imprisoned in one by an unhappy Bounty Hunter...

I-Five...umm....I remember him. I personally don't like him. I just don't know why, but I don't like him. Yes, how could I forget IG-88 and 4-LOM. And possibly General Grievous.

Personally, I think HK-47 is the best droid ever. He has a very good definition of love. But if it was from the movies, I have to say the Magna guards are cool, especially the one Obi-Wan takes on in ROTS.

You just have to love R2. When he went through the Tantive IV corridor amid heavy blasterfire is a classic moment. I didn't like him quite as much in RotS's opening sequence, though; mostly because his antics took away the seriousness from the situation.

^ That was the point - he was comic relief at that point.

Meh, it was too much comic relief. Everything R2 did on the Invisible Hand was overdone, and the battle droids' new voices didn't help either. :headbump

What other comic relief is there in the movie? They probably felt they should put it in because the rest of the film is so dark and tragic.

Agreed there! what the hell was up with those voices!

They probably felt they should put it in because the rest of the film is so dark and tragic.True, but why sacrifice one of the better sequences in the movie for some lame attempt at comedy? I think it would have done the movie better if jokes akin to the dialogue between C-3PO and R2 in the original trilogy were used instead.

I used to like the battle droids, back in TPM when they had cool, not girly, voices. Super battle droids are a cool concept, but they always came off as pretty weak to me in AOTC and ROTS. I always was interested in the IG assassin droids, but there's not really a lot of material about them (Incidently, I thought the story where IG-88 becomes the Death Star central computer was horrible).

Lets all just say that only the Droid technicians and workers have the stupid voices.

I also like IG-72. I dont know why but i think he's just plain cool for a droid.

Nice contribution there, venom. [/SARCASM]

the HK47/50 droids are def. the coolest assassin droids.

The Magnaguard Droids are very neat, but R2 is great comic relief.

sorry, its just that that's all they seem to say. [/SARCASM].
Still, HK takes the crwon. Although he's only in the KOTOR games, he can talk as well as being usefull. And an assasin. R2 can be useful, but can't really talk. C3-POcan talk, but is just iritating.

Whistler was a cool droid, but his buddy, Gate (Wedge's 'droid after Mynock got a mem wipe) is just as cool... i also admire the R2 units in the Jedi StealthXs....those droids put up with alot of work, as the StealthX is such a high mat. vehicle type. OH! for those whom dont know this, R2-D2, since he has NEVER had a mem wipe for as long as the series stands so far, has been in one X-Wing (Lukes obv.) for so long that the X-Wings computer has molded itself around R2's personality, and this makes it impossible for techs to work on Lukes ship without R2D2 there to translate for the computer.....thought that was a riot!

talking specific droids? R2-D2 wins the gold, however, droids in general, mouse droids win

heh heh. they squeak when you step on them in JK:JA. ironically, so do mice...

Whistler, R2 and C3P0. Oh, and mice too. :D

Lets all just say that only the Droid technicians and workers have the stupid voices.

It's a faulty batch of droids. Or Grievous likes voices like that. Or it's an old batch of droids. Or new ones. Whatever. :p
