This supporting character may not fit neatly into the console sidekick stereotype, but Kreia from kotor2: sith lords was not only the highlight of that game, but one of the most interesting sidekicks in recent memory. The story and writing for her character had a lot to do with it, but the voice acting of Sara Kestelman made Kreia even more memorable for me.  The cutscene at the Jedi Academy with Kreia and the 3 masters is one of the best gaming moments I can remember.  Too bad the game turns into poo shortly afterwards.

No villains yet?

I'll say Auron, from Final Fantasy X.

I think you could classify Kreia as a villian, depending on your perspective.

I wasn't trying to criticize you, I was asking, why isn't there a villain thread yet?  (I haven't played KOTOR2.)

Clank.  Probably by a very good margin too.

Yeah, for this generation, I'm gonna have to say Clank as well. Love that laugh.

But the secondary cast from Beyond Good and Evil makes a close second. What a great cast and crew.

Wow, this is tough... HK-47 was a favorite of mine, but i also really liked the fuzzles  in Munch's Oddysee - and Munch himself, squeaky wheelchair and all. I'll have to dwell on this a bit, I'm sure there are others I'm just not remembering!  And the first Ratchet game I ever played - the Deadlocked beta - doesn't have Clank in it, so he's out, for me anyway.
