Coruscant vs Naboo

Which one looks better? Industrial/modern majestic urban vastness of Coruscant or European inspired beauty of Naboo?

As cool as Coruscant is, I'd rather live in Theed. It looks so much more friendly

Hmmm, interesting one. I'd have to say Coruscant. Looks much cooler and loads more impressive. Naboo looks like somewhere you'd go to retire! I guess it's like comparing London to Eastbourne (sorry, I guess only Brits would get that reference).

I'd love to visit Coruscant but living there? I mean imagine the traffic. And that is despite the fact that cars fly there.

Coruscant looks better. Theed would be way more liveable.

A bit more like comparing New York to Eastbourne.

It's called Tatooine (I googled it, because I'm not a Star Wars fan).

Naboo seems to be inspired by Byzantine architecture and I just read that it's also inspired by a building of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Tatooine is a shite hole! Why would anyone want to live there!

Alderaan must have been nice too.

I heard Alderaan was a bit of a stunner. As for Tatooine, I wouldn't want to live there but would quite happily visit Mos Eisley and meet some of the scumbags of the universe

Corusant and that water world were the cloners lived was IMHO the best location design work in the starwars prequals, deserved to be a better film than it was.

Coruscant GDP per capita is far higher, didn't you check the last survey released by the Galactic Archives?? Naboo isn't even a developed planet.

They're only showing the nice parts... I'd like to see a ghetto on naboo.

I say Coruscant all the way. Theed seems nice, but it's just too boring. Blue domes all over the place... I wanna see a real landmark.

(Btw, the place the clones are from is Kamino.)
