Jabba The Hutt

I still think that Don Vito Corleone ranks as the best film Godfather, but Jabba the Hutt ranks a very close 2nd. That’s right, Jabba the Hutt, notorious space gangster. Here is why you could make a great case for Jabba as the ultimate mafia Don.

Feeds his own minions to monsters

Has his own tonight show style band

Hangs frozen Han Solo on a wall as a work of art

Not susceptible to Jedi mind tricks

Has a cool palace

Has a really cool desert ship

Sponsors POD races (Star Wars version of NASCAR)

Has really cool Bounty Hunters / Hit Men in his employ

A very successful businessman

And best of all, makes Princess Leia dress up in a hot bikini slave outfit.
