My number #1 choice would be Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan vs. Darth Maul.
my #2 is Anakin vs. Obi-Wan (Ep.III)
and #3 is Luke vs. Darth Vader (Ep.6)

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

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.

Great Scott!

Luke vs. Vader in episode VI, I almost cried the first time I saw Vader sacrifice himself like that.

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

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.

Edit: Oh look, 888 posts :D sorry, back on topic!

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

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

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.

A tie between Vader vs. Luke in both movies. Yes, the swordplay and special effects aren't as good, but who cares? :)

Great Scott!
09-27-2006, 05:37 PM
This erection is the "heart" of lucasforumsEwwww!

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."

Definitely Obi-Wan vs. Maul. Ray Park's skill is extremely impressive. I can watch that one over and over.

Absolutely, and it's the first time experiencing a saberstaff.

I would have to say:
1)Obi Vs. Vader-Ep. III
2)Jinn Vs. Maul-Ep. I
3)Luke Vs. Vader-Ep. V

Mace MacLeod

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.

11-15-2006, 12:21 AM
Look, I don't know why, but I liked the brief battle between Dooku and Anakin on board the Invisible Hand in Episode III. I also really enjoyed the lightsaber battle in Episode 1 between Maul and Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan (a classic).
The battle between Grievous and Obi-Wan (not on the poll) was a little dissapointing because I had been expecting a lot more from Grievous, (he was way too slow).

Luke vs. Vader in episode VI, I almost cried the first time I saw Vader sacrifice himself like that.

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?

Obi Wan vs. Vader in Episode III owns...nothing compares to it.

I came close to crying when seeing Episode III, after Order 66 had just been given and the Jedi got killed. And also at the very end when all the fates of the main characters are being shown to connect the PT and OT. On that part, mostly just because I realized that this was the end, and there would be no more Star Wars movies. :cry8:

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. :p

1st: Obi-Wan VS The newly appointed Darth Vader
2nd: Yoda VS Dooku
3rd: Mace Windu [and other jedi] VS Darth Sidious

1st: Excellent. Set on a great planet filled with rage anger and love. *sob*

2nd: Cool, how Yoda walks in slowly and crippled and then starts jumping off the walls and spinnning his saber like crazy. Yoda is so cool.

3rd: Is it me or did the jedi helping Mace arrest the Chancellor die a bit suddenley? I mean, these guys are supposed to be jedi knights, Palpatine got rid of them like padawans! I know hes a sith lord, but they could hav e put up a bit of a fight...or died more dramaticcly. :)

I didn't see that one coming. :D

Shame Kit Fisto died they could have expanded him into a story inbetween ep 3 and 4.

1st Yoda vs Sidious EP 3- amazing battle and sidious's laugh is funny and when Yoda get's his revenge his alugh turns into a sort of cry! Haha

2nd Anakin v Obi Wan EP U should know- very well done fight with a very interesting battle ground

3 Qui gon and Obi Wan v Maul- nice battle ground and cool double lightsaber. Interesting when the yahve the red shields aswell.

That's mine. :)

#1 would be Anakin and Obi-Wan in EpIII, that was a great fight.
#2 would be Yoda and Count Dooku in EpII, shame it wasnt longer really.
#3 would be Yoda and Palpatine in EpIII, although i think they could have made that massively better.

I would have preferred it if Count Dooku had been the Sith in EpI who was killed by Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan, then have Maul against Obi-Wan/Anakin/Yoda in EpII and have a nice big fight between Anakin/Obi-Wan and Maul on the Invisible Hand in EpIII.

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

Oh I liked so many of them - the second Dooku duel (for the amazing arrogant defence by Dooku against two attackers), the vicious Windu and Palpatine duel, the Battle of the Heroes; then all of the OT duels! But I'm voting for ESB Luke and Vader. It was always one of the most memorable for me - so dramatic in terms of lighting, atmosphere & surroundings and action.

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.
