    Link: The 10 Greatest Sounds from Star Wars - George Lucas has always said that sound is ``half of the picture`` and this list proves it. Very accurate ranking here.

    WHAAAAT?!?! I was SO sure the Wookies would be at the top...
    It`s the only sound anyone imitates from the movie (along with Darth Vader), after all.

    Hey, I imitated lightsabers when I was little and swinging sticks around in the back yard. That, and Darth Vader was the earliest crush I had on a movie character. ^^;
    I still seem to have a thing for villains though.

    I have to agree on the lightsabers being the coolest sound. Thought the tie fighters should be third behind Darth Vader.I feel that the imperial walkers should be on there instead of the seismic charges.

    Cool list, but I would have moved the Tie fighters, and R2 up the list. I also would have added the X-Wing, and Tie fighter`s lasers, and the speeder bikes instead of Pogo the Lesser, and Wat Tambor.

    I`m pretty sure the whole George Lucas quote is:

    May we pray to god that they never invent cgi sounds.

    Whats interesting is a lot of these sounds are sampled from real things and places but manipulated in a synth called a synclavier to give them a unique quality. Its because the sounds are from real sources that we never second guess the sound with the visual.

    The list is all wrong. The most recognizable sound is of course Darth Vader so he is number 1. Two is R2D2. 3. Blasters 4. Lightsabers. As for the rest, who cares?

    Also, when Episode II came out, one of the tuba players at my highschool figured out the pitch of the seismic charges and randomly played it after he snook up on people.

    I was expecting to see the Death Star cannon in there...but meh, Star Wars has alot of sound effects in it, how can you expect to represent them all in a list of 10 items?

    Nice to see the sound tech guys actually get some recognition outside of the ending credits and the parts of award shows that no one watches.

    Yeah, i always thought that lightsabers were the best sounds in the movie series.By the way, have you noticed how the duels were more "strenght"-like, with less acrobatics in the 3 "old" movies, while in the "new" ones, they keep jumping and whirling and stuff?
