The Star Wars universe is not an easy place to live. A galaxy far, far away tends to be embroiled in massive conflicts. Even when one major enemy is defeated, another soon takes it place.
The Separatists are defeated and the Clone Wars end, only for the tyrannical Galactic Empire to form in the wake of victory. The Empire is destroyed, only for the First Order to rise from the Empire’s ashes. Oftentimes the only thing that can make such life bearable is romance.
Through the years Star Wars has told tales of many romantic couples. These tales have been spun not only in the movies, but also through television shows, books, comics, and video games.
Some of these couples are the beating hearts of the galaxy’s best stories. Others had potential that fizzled out, and a select few were misguided from the start.
This list will only look at couples that have actually happened or officially begun. That means that disappointing as it may be, popular fan ships that haven’t actually happened yet, such as Finn and Poe Dameron (Stormpilot) or Rey and Kylo Ren (Reylo), are not included here. Reylo came incredibly close to officially happening in The Last Jedi–and may very well happen in Episode IX–but as of now is not eligible for the list.
Whether a romantic couple is canon or now relegated to Star Wars Legends, all have played significant roles in either enhancing or hurting the overall universe. As such, both canon and Legends couples will be explored here.
With love in the air, it’s time to unveil the 8 Couples That Hurt Star Wars (And 12 That Saved Them).
