Why: This equally desolate landscape is where the Rebel Base resided in the time after the destruction of the first Death Star. The bitter coldness and the danger of being eaten by snow monsters prove to be Hoth’s downfall.
Why: Though it was once the home of Yoda, this planet is a desolate and lonely landscape. If you get bored, just explore your inner-self in the dark cave. What’s in there you ask? Only what you take with you.
Why: Sure, it has a massive arena for gladiator-style fights, but that doesn’t change the fact that Geonosis is really quite disgusting. It’s a slightly more structured version of Tatooine, but aside from that, some of the creatures that live there are just scary. Watch out for the Acklays whilst going for a walk.
Why: The Clone Wars left this planet in ruins, but if that damage has been repaired then it’s quite a nice location to reside in. And there’s a period of persistent snowfall every 200 years, so the landscapes will look great.
7. Cato Neimoidia
Why: If you can convince them you’re a Neimoidian then this is the place to settle. This planet was only inhabited by the richest Neimoidians, so come here for a life of luxury. The only downside is that there was once a strong Hutt presence, though it’s not as large as it once was.
Why: This is truly a planet for the nature lover, covered in vast swamplands and natural fauna which provide an elegant and scenic habitat. If you can befriend the Wookies then you’ll also have some rather cuddly yet hulkish friends. It’s like living the dream. A really, really weird dream.
Why: There are very few job opportunities on this planet if you don’t like mining. However, it is a wonderful planet to live on. The habitats are modern and cleanly finished. Just avoid that Lando Calrissian, as he’s not the best at making deals.
3. Yavin 4
Why: The ancient Mayan-like ruins that cover Yavin 4 make for a scenic and historical living environment. This moon was also the home of the new Jedi school, following the Battle of Endor. This is definitely a world that had both the light and dark sides battling for it, but if you can look past that then it’s just delightful.
Why: This planet is essentially the centre of the galaxy. The upper levels of Coruscant are architecturally marveling, and it remains a planet that the Republic and Empire fight for control of. The lower levels of the planet, however, are littered with crime and injustice.
Why: Much like Queen Amidala, Naboo is incredibly beautiful. This planet is home to an ideal mix of major cities, filled with architecture and culture and beautiful swamps and grasslands. And if you get bored - which you won’t - you can always visit the Gungans.
