Not quite!

The character I'm thinking of doesn't talk in the game (it would be impossible for him to do so, given the state he is in!)

Hi!

Interesting thread! Mind if I join in?

Since it's not Bruce Willis, I would say The Man With No Name.... but I think there's no game made with him!

So... given your ambiguous hint, I would Roger Samms (Bad Mojo), after all, cockroaches can't talk, can they?

Captain Jack Harkness!
No wait Malcolm Reynolds!

In all honesty(or something like it): Does he wanna be a pirate?

Zaphod Beeblebrox springs to mind. can't remember if or how he was involved in the H2G2 game though, long time since I played it

@TechnoSpike: good guess, and you're right cockroaches certainly can't talk (thank goodness) but that's not who I'm thinking of

@rayvio: Zaphod is definitely a cool cat, but he isn't the cool guy I'm thinking about.

Actually, he is a pirate! Or I should say, he was a pirate.

Gotta be this guy then.
Bruce Willis is much cooler than him (and has a more pleasant odour too).

That's a good guess, but remember this character can't speak!

Also I want to add that this character's awesomeness is not based on my own opinion, but on the opinion of others in the game.

Nope, sorry

OK, another clue:

This character has the ability to speak a very unusual language. Oops, I mean he HAD the ability to speak a very unusual language.

I fear my character/clues might be too obscure. To recap, i'll copy-paste the clues given so far:
-he's the coolest, greatest, most awesome guy ever.
-The character I'm thinking of doesn't talk in the game (it would be impossible for him to do so, given the state he is in!)
-Actually, he is a pirate! Or I should say, he was a pirate.
- Also I want to add that this character's awesomeness is not based on my own opinion, but on the opinion of others in the game.
- This character has the ability to speak a very unusual language. Oops, I mean he HAD the ability to speak a very unusual language.
- He's dead

Another clue: He's dead, but not to his friends (they're not too observant).

he'll be your best friend even if you rip his heart out. he'll always be your best friend. even if you kill him, he'll forgive you
