Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Han Solo... Star Wars has given us some of Hollywood's coolest characters, but some truly silly characters have also appeared throughout the six feature films. Taking a moment to recognize the bad allows us to appreciate the good that much more, so here are eight characters that just don't work.

Think a character is missing from this list? Tell us what it is in the comments!

Nute Gunray

First off, why is your name Nute Gunray? Stop it. Stop being named that. That's like being named John Gunshot - it may work if you're a cowboy in a western, or maybe if Nute were a bounty hunter, but he's a politician for crying out loud.

Second, hurray for casual racism - though I suppose this can be said for a number of Star Wars characters. Drop the racially insensitive accent and change his name, and Nute could have actually been a decent character. But nope; apparently Lucas thought making his villains bumbling caricatures was a good idea.
