VERSUS: X-wing Pilot VS Jedi

I had an argument about Star Wars with my VFX supervisor Robin.
R:
X-wing Pilot or Jedi?
T:
What? You mean what I’d rather be? Is that even a- Jedi, obviously.
R:
X-wing Pilot.
T:
No! Really?
R:
Imagine how awesome it would be flying one of those.
T:
Yeah but still. Name one X-wing Pilot that survives who is not also a Jedi.
R:
Wedge.
T:
Oh shit, you’re right! And he’s like Luke’s best buddy too. But he’s not in the new Abrams movies, so apparently he didn’t survive that long.
R:
They asked him, but he didn’t want to be in it because his part was too small. [Source]
T:
Would’ve been cool to have him back.
R:
Porkins.
T:
Porkins didn’t survive did he?
R:
No, but he’s awesome. Thanks to him you can have fat pilots. Ever seen a fat jedi?
T:
And he was in… what was he in?
R:
Raiders.
T:
Exactly, in the beginning. And he was the guy in Burton’s Batman. The corrupt cop.
R:
Yeah.
T:
Imagine naming your fat character Porkins. That wouldn’t fly today. That’d create so much bad press.
R:
Yeah well, its better than calling a Jedi Kit Fisto.T:
Is not!R:

Is too!
