Surely you would want to live in the Death Star, the pinnacle of human engineering?
I wouldn't want to live on Naboo, you'd have to share it with the Gungans, and more specifically, Jaja Binks

Coruscant, albeit the lower you go the worse it is (in terms of dark alien encounters, crime, pollution,etc.). As long as I'm on the upper levels of Coruscant where the sun and moons do shine, I'm fine.

Corellia is a pretty sweet planet too, next Alderaan it's probably the most earth-like.

Alderaan (sorry if it's a bit big). The details in these screenshots are mind boggling.

When I first saw Ep. III that establishing shot blew my mind. It's hard to believe that was the surface of the white rock of a planet the Death Star destroyed in 1977.

Speaking of the Gungans, noone's mentioned Gunga city.

Kinda silly tho, why would they build the space port right next to the Royal Palace? It's like Heathrow being next to Westminster.

At least its hidden from most of the city. Plus maybe it has strategic/military needs. I seem to remember in episode 1 they were able to launch some fighters while attacking the palace. Its just for convenience.

Besides I bet its still way quieter than Coruscant.

Security? Aviation enthusiasts? Not everyone likes to live in a garden. Many like the energy of hustle and bustle. In a place as full of nature as this one, that desire might be heightened.
