I chose Hurin, and don't see how anyone could do otherwise, but then likely many others feel the same about their choices. Sure, Beren went to Angbanc uninvited, but that only underscores Hurin for me: he STAYED, defied Morgoth to his face for the bulk of his life, knowing that at any time he could have been released if only he would betray Turgon, as he watched his entire family systematically destroyed.
There he was bound by the power of Morgoth, and Morgoth standing beside him cursed him again; and he said: 'Sit now there; and look out upon the lands where evil and despair shall come upon those whom thou lovest. Thou hast dared to mock me, and to question the power of Melkor, Master of the fates of Arda. Therefore with my eyes thou shalt see, and with my ears thou shalt hear; and never shalt thou move from this place until all is fulfilled unto its bitter end.'
Naetheless, only three people ever defied Morgoth to his face, and of those one was the strongest of all the Valar, the other was turned into hamburger by a single blow of Grond and the other--the other walked out of Angband and went to see and then bury his wife.
