2. Emperor Palpatine

The original trilogy becomes all the more fascinating upon completion, when one realizes that Palpatine has been pulling the strings all along. He’s the most brilliantly devious character in the entire series. Oh, and he’s butt ugly and shoots electric bolts of hate from his fingertips. That’s pretty sweet, too.
