I haven’t read anything about grown-up Jaina, but I liked her a lot in Corellian Trilogy (where she was around eight, I believe, and still managed to do some VERY nice shooting in old Falcon with Jacen as her pilot); she is definitely my favorite of Han and Leia’s children.
And I like Obi-Wan very much too, especially in the Second Episode; Obi-Wan’s thoughts when he was flying the recon droid or when he was falling after its destruction, not to mention Obi-Wan battle with Jango (one of my favorite duels in Star Wars, by the way, not to mention one the funniest!) are what make the Second Episode my favorite of Star Wars books!
Still, my absolute favorites remain as they were: male – Han Solo, female – Qwi Xux.

Well, Wedge is a pretty cool guy too (not to mention that he is the one with whom my favorite superweapon designer eventually fell in love with!), even if he lacks Han Solo’s reckless streak (well, actually he has it too, even if in smaller amount).

But is he the only pilot with two Death Star kill markings on the side of his X wing
Not really, he has been forced to withdraw from the first one after being hit by Vader, remember?. He stayed almost until the end, though, and if not for him, Vader would probably kill Luke before Han Solo could come on his aid... Nope, he wouldn't; Luke was a Hero, and he was meant to succeed, one way or another!
By the way, Lando almost destroyed the original Death Star prototype (a working prototype) in his Lady Luck; it was Kup that eventually led the original Death Star into the Black Hole, but Lando caused a severe reactor damage to it nevertheless (preventing it from causing some more damage to New Republic forces until it was destroyed).
But still, nobody can truly claim to destroy two of three existing Death Stars: the first was blown up by Luke, the second - by Lando and Wedge (and Lando's Sullustese co-pilot, forgot his name), the third - by Kyp Durron (I am not sure I got his last name right).
