StarWars.com’s 100 most popular databank entries for 2007 is an interesting (and snarky!) read. EU fans will particularly love Kyle Katarn’s blurb.
And because I’m clearly behind on the ‘mention the namesake’ quota, I’ll note that Mara is the highest ranked EU entity, coming in at #21… And the third-highest female (behind Leia and Padme, natch.) Even if her entry is a tad behind on the timeline.
