What are your thoughts on holistic portrayal, authorial intent, etc. And how do you incorporate it into your rankings and such?

Do you have a specific example in mind? One thing I can think of is how ROTS Palpatine is stated to be the strongest Sith in history.

If the authorial intent in the plot is obvious and well traceable, it is much more authoritative than the attempts of people to “quantify” the characters based on their feats. Of course, this does not apply to those moments when someone literally forces the author to say the desired words on Twitter.

Tis only relevant in the eyes of Lucas, but he's not infallible either.
