Ill go with Obi-wan,Qui-gon and Maul. It was long, intense, and it showed alot skill by all the participants fighing.

The Arena battle was cool but it was vs. droids so thats why I didnt pick it.
Also the other saber fights are kinda short. Good nontheless, but short.
Ep.3 will give you more choices to put into the next poll of this type.:)

I'm probably going against the grain here but the final fight between Luke and Darth Vader was ultimatly the best. Reason for this being that it was a chilling scene with Luke actually inside the infamous Death Star watching his comrades fall down and listening to the evil schemes of the emperor.

Not only was this part in the movie chilling it was also a turning point for Vader and almost Luke, as you can see the emperor is trying to lure Luke into the darkside through Vader. (Remember when Luke hid for a while and Vader was talking about how he knew of his sister and that she would certainly turn to the dark side) At a point you the emperor almost succeded yet near the end when you believe that it's all over good does prevail and Vader miracously (sp?) turns over to the good side, to the light side and the battle is done.

I think that the Geonosis battle scene was the best in all of SW figthing scenes. My second favorite one would be Maul vs. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.

The best saber battle has got to be Luke and Vader from The Empire Strikes Back!

who could forgot the moment that Vader told Luke "I am your father"?
:duel:

or the the amazing sets such as the carbon freezing room or the massive empty space inside the flying city?

or luke trying to block the incoming objects from Vader?
:lsduel:

or luke losing his hand?

or the end where Luke is left hanging off an antenna and hand to use the force and communicate with Leia to get himself rescued?

The fight between Darth Maul and the other two was the best so far. With the exception of the fight with Yoda and Dooku. That ranks on the same level for me. That fight between Darth Maul was so awesome. It incorporated so many new things the Star Wars Universe had never seen before. An Actor WHO ACTUALLY KNEW HOW TO FIGHT!!! Mauls Technique was top notch. Add on the Double Saber and WHEW... I need to stop.

For sheer eye candy: Obi and Qui vs Maul- they knew what they where doing, and it showed. Looked awesome.

For the emotional aspect, the last Luke vs Vader fight. Very well done from that standpoint. The underlying emotion is was brings that scene together.

I agree with you when you look at it from an emotional position...You could feel the turmoil and underlying emotion in Luke. Fighting within himself...Good vs Evil

The best story line, climax, and atmosphere I say goes to Luke vs Vader in Ep 6 for reasons previously mentioned. But the best moves, stunts, effects, etc I would say Maul vs Obi Wan & Qui Gon. The Geonosis fight was more of a battle than a saber fight. Dooku was way to fast. But they were all still awesome.

I think Maul vs. Obi and Qui-Gon was the best pure lightsaber duel in the SW movies. Some amazing, fast-paced action and acrobatics. That fight just made that movie... too bad it was intercut with that terrible Gungan vs. Droids battle :(

My second favorite duel has to be Luke vs. Vader in ESB. The second longest in the trillogy (no intercutting between it and the Ewoks... only extremely cool firefights between Leia, Lando, Chewie and stormtroopers!). It also has great use of the Force on Vader's part and, as Divine Spirit said, it had some excellent sets.

The Yoda vs. Dooku fight was awesome, but far too short, same with the other lightsaber duels... but they were, for the most part, all one after another with little intercutting.

Those're the top three; the RotJ battle was, again too short and mostly psychological as opposed to physical. Still good... dripping with portent... but deffinately not as visually exciting as the three sighted above.

This was a really tough decision. What an interesting, thought-provoking poll. :)

While, for sheer gymnastic quality, the Maul vs 2 Jedi is simply phoenomenal; and for emotional, climactic value ROTJ is top-notch; I have to say that ESB's saber fight was my most favorite.

Why? Atmosphere. The freezing chamber was a GREAT battleground; the air ducts even more so. It was like Luke was fighting a monstrous ghost in a technological haunted house. Vader's a bull. Where Luke was nimble, Vader was slicing houses in half. You got the absolute impression that Vader was - and is - a juggernaut. And when Vader held his saber to Luke's nose, telling him "You are beaten"? Priceless.

If Maul actually had GOOD DIALOGUE, I might've changed my mind, though. :) And if Yoda/Dooku had a longer, more intense fight, I'd have dug that too. But overall, ESB all the way.

I'll have to take the final battle between Luke vs. Vader in ROTJ. Sure, both Luke and Vader didn't really pull off any pimpin' moves, but it was, in my opinion, the most dramatic. I'm not going to restate everything, but it was the ultimate conflict of good vs. evil, to the mythological level. Of course, it would have been better if Luke and Vader used more Force powers, fought a lot faster like in AOTC, and the Emperor's lightning was more powerful. I also liked the set (the throne room) best because it was dark, hi-tech-looking, and was in space.

Just for acrobatic/eye-candy reasons, though, I'll say Anakin vs. Tyranus because of the dual sabers and Tyranus' bent saber.

i thought that almost all the votes would go to the geonosis brawl, personally ive finally come to the decision that jango fett vs obi wan was the best, it was too short, but all great battles are. i just think it was cool how jango used his tools to outwit a jedi, i didnt like boba's part in the battle much but well lucas has never had luck with child actors (anakin from ep1), i think its kind of funny that nobody voted for vader vs obi wan ep4.

I'd have to go with Luke and Vader in ESB, Vader fought the whole thing using one hand:D

sorry greedo, not the whole fight just the beginning, once he got mad at luke the fight was over, the part where luke smokes him in the shoulder is the real turning point. you can see vader just cutting loose and ending it.
