i must say windu vs. palpatine. there's just so much more than just jedi and sith battling in this scene. everything is revealed, and eventually palpatine comes out of it as the grand champion. not only killing 4 jedi masters single handedly (basically, come on), and getting the apprentice he's longed for for 15+ years. incredible.

The best has to be Obi-wan vs. Anakin, followed closely by Obi-wan vs. Darth Maul.

Yes he does, but against Maul... his emotions got the better of him, and he almost died. Against Anakin, he pwns all. I would have though Anakin's defection to the Dark Side would have had a more profound impact on Obi-wan's self control, but dear Obi never hesitates, always pwns.

I think that's what makes that scene so cool...the ferocious attack against Maul after Qui-Gon gets killed, just brilliant...

Yeah, does anyone else get emotional when viewing Star Wars, or am I the only one? Has anyone actually cried watching Star Wars, like while in the cinemas?

I can honestly say I almost shed a tear when Episode III ended with the beautiful binary sunset scene.
It was such a perfect ending for a great movie. And then I also knew it was worth it to wait in line for 12-13h to get tickets to the premiere.

Yeah, Lucasforums is rapidly dying

Anyway, I like Obi-Wan Vs. Anakin best, it's amazingly choreographed and has brilliant emotions flying around throughout. Also, it's really long.

LF isn't really dying, it's the this esction that maybe dying.

I'd have to go with Obi-Wan V.S. Darth Vader in Ep. III or Darth Maul V.S. Qui-Gonn and Obi.

This erection is the "heart" of lucasforums, it's only a symbol of everything else dying. Grim fandango boards = dead samnmax boards = dead monkey island boards = dying slowly. *emo tear*

Also, I liked Yoda vs. Doooockoooo

Ewwww!

And who voted the best duel was Obi-Wan vs. Vader from Episode IV? I know it ended the huge duel that started in episode III, but seriously, it was so... boring! Slow combat and no force powers, and one person just ended up letting the other kill him (which is the only lightsaber duel this happens). I probably would have too to get out of that slow, boring duel.

EDIT: Well, okay, Vader sacrifices himself in RotJ, but first of all, that's not during a lightsaber duel (just the emporer shocking Luke), and second of all, he does it to save his son and the galaxy, not just for the heck of it or trying to look "honorable."

Well, most of the other forums (KotOR, Jedi Knight Series) for example, are quite far from dead at the moment, and EaW and Lego Star Wars aren't slowly dying.

Sounds like a good topic for another thread...

Obi vs Maul- Even though it was short, it was the most intense. Set the standard for all to follow.

Obi Wan VS. Maul. It's great and I love watching Spike-head fight.




The following tale of alien encounter is true and by true, I mean false. Its all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.

IMO Jinn/Kenobi/Maul is the best, at least in choreography...

The Ep. III duels were pure quality, but nothing was as entertaining as the Ep I duels. Especially because nobody had seen such hi-speed lightsaber action before and if you ask me, nobody will anymore, with Maul gone. They could have given Grievous some better lightsabering skills, but no, he has to be the bitchy evil megalomaniac who dies in the most pathetic fight in SW history.

I loved the Episode I duel. It was intense, it was brilliant. I know Lucas has said that the duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan is meant to be emotional, but I just didn't feel it. It felt more emotional watching Obi-Wan yell, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!", at the top of his lungs as he witnessed his master being slain by Darth Maul than watching Obi-Wan and Anaking duking it out, imo

Hmm.

Darth Maul saberstaff action in Ep. 1 was probably the best choreographed, and Obi-Wan vs. Anakin in Ep. 3 had the best action, but my personal favourite was Yoda vs Dooku at the end of Ep. 2. Seeing that for the first time just made the whole movie right there, with his "Super-Grover" battlecry and his hopping around and bouncing off the walls. No other lightsaber fight really had the same OMFG impact as seeing that for the first time, because even though you know Yoda's a Jedi Master and everything, it's the first time you've ever seen him really move and fight like a Jedi Master. Great stuff.
