What is your favorite Star Wars sound effect?

A poll is up for this topic. The Vader breathing sound is my favorite. It's so awesome and menacing!!!!
George Lucas was seduced by the dark side. The OOT ceased to exist in his mind and became the Special Editions...." "They're more maching now than movies. Twisted and evil."

I love the sound the TIE Fighters make. That, and the lightsaber sounds, the hum more than the clash.

I must say that I really LOVE the "speeder bikes zooming"!
When I watch ROTJ, and in particular the speeder bike chase, I often go back with my remote just for hearing those sounds!

Some of the TPM Pod sounds are really awsome too. The race really worth the listening!
One other sound is really really cool in AOTC: Jango's charges in the asteroid field. The first time I've heard it, I was "...WOW!".

I also love the creatures sounds in the whole saga. Ben Burtt has really made a great job on that!

I forgot about Jango's charges. There's one level in "Rogue Squadron 3" where you can pilot the Jedi Starfighter, and the only reason I go back to that level is so I can use those charges and hear that awesome sound.

Yeah, I do the same thing, but the trouble is that you have the jedi starfighter only at the end of the level (or with the cheat codes!).

I had to vote for Vader. His breathing is so iconic!

I chose lightsaber hum and clash, although I prefer the hum. And now that you guys mention it, I loved Jango's charges as well and still do.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

For the OT, I chose the Tie Fighter humming sound.

For the PT, I chose the sismic charges from AOTC.

The PTs sucked, but... AOTC has probably the best sound I'll ever hear in a movie theater, the sound for that movie was absolutely awesome...
“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

I got to go with the 'Wilhelm' yell. Star Wars wouldn't be the same with out it.

I've always liked the sounds the TIE fighters make when they scream by the camera. It was nice to hear a reprise of this in ROTS.

i always really liked the sound of the heavy machinery in ESB in the carbon freezing chamber. like the heavy lift arm and stuff. also heard in ROTJ in certain death star hanger scenes.
thank the maker

I really should have voted for R2-D2's beeps. He's like a robot parrot. Every sound that he makes is perfectly indicative of the situation he's in. Like when they're entering Dagobah's atmosphere in ESB.

As it was, I voted for the lightsaber sounds, because I imitate them a lot. And then I realised I imitated R2's beeps and whistles just as often, if not more...
MTFBWY. Always.

im not voting, just because i like them all, i could say though that the eopie farting might be the WORST sound effect, but only because i hate it, not that the farting sound effect itself was bad. btw i wonder where burtt got that sound?

I'd have to say that the WORST sound in star wars is that of Jar Jar's voice.

I agree. The Wilhelm yell should be in every movie (well, heck, it almost already is!)

By the way, Mr. Bungle, I got your PMs. Thanks for understanding.

Yeah, the Wilhelm Scream is really great, and is in ALL SW movies, in all Indys, and many many more movies.
For the Wilhelm Scream lovers, or people who don't know what we're talking about, there's a great video montage with pretty much all movies which have the Wilhelm Scream. It's right there!
