Which one do you like better? Now, I'm not talking about the entire naboo battle vs geonosis battle, I mean obi and qui gon vs darth maul or obi and anakin vs dooku. I liked episode one better simply because it was fater, had better camera angles, and I like the acrooobatic style obi-wan and darth maul used...

While I think the Obi Wan/Maul duel was a little longer than the Dooku/Obi & Anakin duel I liked the Dooku duel because the fighting styles were much cooler in my opinion. First of all Dooku's kick ass saber stance. Then we have Anakin with 2 sabers and Obi Wan with his reformed style. All in all both were great, but I think Dooku's style and Anakins 2 sabers did it for me

Had you put in the Yoda dooku duel, that would have won my vote, but the duel of the fates is the second coolest duel in starwars.

I love Darth Maul so I have to go with the TPM duel. It was just so cool. The acrobatics were also better and they weren't CGI. Ray Park was one hell of a Sith.

I'm with ET Warrior on this one. If you toss Yoda/Dooku then I'd go with AotC. But if you're talking only Dooku vs. Obiwan/Anakin then I'd have to go with the first. Maul handled both Quigon and Obiwan at the same time, which might the battle more exciting (that and Ray Parks just kicking ass). The Dooku vs Obiwan/Anakin duel might have been better if all three were fighting at the same time. As it was though, it seemed much too one-sided for me in favor of Dooku, and as such not as exciting.

I voted for Obi-Wan&Qui-Gon vs Darth Maul but I also like the duel Anakin&Obi-Wan vs Dooku/Yoda vs Dooku just as much. They're all great because each have a different background and meaning, they have their own unique feeling. :)

I liked TPM better, even better than the Yoda part in AOTC.:)

I must disagree with the general feeling in here.

The Geonosian Duel was better than the Nubian Duel. Granted, Darth Maul was amazing, and his skills while taking on both Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi were considerable. However, Count Dooku has the best lightsaber style ever, and taking on Anakin when he grabbed the second lightsaber was great, if a little short. Obi-Wan was given a good chance against the Count, and put up a good fight. Yoda was just classy, perfect in every respect.

You can modify the lightsaber design as many times as you like, but the single-blade versus single-blade is unbeatable. I felt that Maul's weapon was a little over-the-top.

I have said this before, and now I will say it again.

Darth Maul managed them both quite well in the beginning, but you must remember that this was before Qui-Gon had warmed up. In most of the duel, it wasn't 2 against 1, it was 1 against 1. And after Obi-Wan got kicked out of the battle, Qui-Gon fought way better than Maul, who did little but to block Qui-Gons hits. But Maul won at the end, because of a cheap trick.

First choice. More interesting to watch for me. More martial arts and flips and the like. It had 2 on 1 for a while and a double lightsaber is more fun to watch. More fast and agile.:)

obi vs maul is my personal favorite
i like the obi & anakin vs dooku duel but obi-wan didn't show as much skill as he did in TPM, I guess with maturity he adopted a more energy efficient style

When I first saw the duel of TPM, I was sure it was the best. BUT, after looking at it many times, I realized that it was really fake. Obi *could* have hit many times Maul when Qui-Gon was fithing him, BUT he didn't.

It's a little bit crazy to see Obi cut Maul... Maul's saber was "on" when Obi was in the big hole, and after Obi jumbed, his saber was misteriously "off".

The fight in TPM is waaay too long... Fights in Ep. 4,5,6 were not that long, and it gets repetitive.

Double-bladed saber is cool, but Dooku is better, his "arcane" style kicks ass...

My vote goes to AOTC.

Where'd you guys find all that info about the saber styles? I really couldn't tell, it was going too fast.

And about the Yoda/Dooku fight: it's easy to kick butt when you're computer-generated. That fight was waaay too fast and chaotic for me to follow or appreciate fully. But we DID get to see Yoda fight, after all.

The Duel of the Fates is just the best with the Imperial Death March in second. I can play Duel of the Fates at any time and it just get's me pumped up. I think that it is the best piece of music that has ever come out of a Star Wars movie. The Chorus singing just makes it better too.

I couldn't agree more :)

Dooku is absolutely awesome ...IMHO, they should have made much more of him in AOTC than they did...

I must say the AOTC fight rocks...th two sabers were the bomb...had the fighting there been as long as TPM fight, it would win, no doubt.
