Their connection is more about taking control of the galaxy, dominating everything and everyone within their way. That's a close and unique bond and one that starts in the prequels, with the two of them having a teacher and protege relationship.
8 Obi-Wan Kenobi & Qui-Gon Jinn
The young Obi-Wan Kenobi builds a great bromance within Star Wars: The Phantom Menace with Qui-Gon Jinn. While Qui-Gon is technically a mentor for Obi-Wan, they do end up on a level playing field, with Qui-Gon trusting him as much as possible, which comes with great friendship.
They clearly both care about each other, fighting side by side and trying their hardest to make sure that they train young Anakin in the best way possible. They don't necessarily have tons of jokes like other friends, but they do work well together and that's because of the time they've spent together growing their friendship.
7 Luke Skywalker & Ben Kenobi
One of Luke Skywalker's first great friendships comes with Ben Kenobi, who ends up taking Luke under his wing to create a fantastic friendship. It's one built around respect, but the difference in their energy and personalities does work out well.
Ben can be quite serious at times, as he wants the best from Luke, but they clearly have a deep love for one another as friends. Their bond is one of the most enjoyable within the franchise, and it's something that brings the best out of Luke, while also reigniting the fire inside of Ben.

5 Han Solo & Lando Calrissian
Han Solo is someone with a big personality who loves to charm as many people as possible which is why he's got several great bromances throughout the franchise. One of the best is his friendship with Lando Calrissian, with the two of them having a strong bond together.
They're great friends because of how competitive they are together. Lando and Han are always wanting to one-up each other, which is a lot of fun to play out within the movies. While they're not always on the same page, they normally come together at the right moments and work well as a unit.
4 R2-D2 & C-3PO
Can robots have bromances? Well, they clearly can in Star Wars because R2-D2 and C-3PO are brilliant friends within these movies. They're together throughout them all, spend plenty of time bickering and arguing as any good bromance does, while they do have a clear love for each other too.

3 Han Solo & Luke Skywalker
These two characters might have had different personalities, but that's what made them such a likable bromance. They were always happy to help each other and the bond they shared was a truly unique one. However, their bickering and the fact they didn't always see eye to eye is what made them so great.
Those types of jokes are what makes them such a good bromance, as people look to these almost as relationships, which is why them falling out at points only adds to that. They, of course, have tons of good times as well, and overall their friendship is one that makes the movies what they are.
2 Obi-Wan Kenobi & Anakin Skywalker
Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker's friendship had an inevitable ending, but the fact they ended up becoming such close friends before their fight only made that lightsaber duel even more impactful. Anakin grows up with Obi-Wan, and they share a great bond together.
They share jokes and push each other, but they also fight alongside each other and really help one another. Their personalities are very different, with Obi-Wan being the older, more mature Jedi with Anakin's eagerness often leads to them falling out, which can be a lot of fun to watch unfold.
1 Han Solo & Chewbacca
When it comes to bromances within the Star Wars universe, they do not get any better than Han Solo and Chewbacca. These are two characters that love each other, and do everything in their power to help one another, no matter the situation.
They always have each other's backs, like true friends, but they also have jokes and wind each other up as well. Both of them will question the other, and that's what brings balance to their friendship. Chewbacca often gives sassy responses to Han, but he's one of few people that Solo truly lets into his life, and their closeness is a brilliant one within the franchise.
