Dooku for sure. Not the usual brute you get with dark side alignment

Though Sidious was the most masterful, Tyranus was my favorite. Like the others said, he had style, both in combat and out.

Dooku isn't my favorite, but I've got to agree he had style.

Oh, he could move alright. I seem to remember a force leap or two. Besides, he didn't need to move. His fighting style was all about deceptive wrist angles.

Christopher Lee, on the other hand, could barely move.

Oh, come on... that's a nice beard! And like herosinger said, his lightsaber combat form didn't required much movement, it was all about precision.

Darth Maul is definitely my favorite Sith, not just from the prequels, but from Star Wars movies in general. It's too bad that he didn't really have much to say in the movie, though.

Pre-Vinegar face Sidious is my favorite, I don't like the whole Black robe, freak show, tattoo face, gimmick hilt, 79 year old Apprentice!?, Sith.

Sidious has a (Relatively) normal Hilt, regular clothes, and he's not disabled or part machine... He's bad-ass because he wants to be, not because he's disillusioned, senile, half dead, or kidnapped.

i love the whole old wounds thing have any of u guys read or seen the little flash animation? it basically says that maul didnt die in theed and he got robotic legs and followed obiwan all the way to tatooine missing him by a few days on every planet obiwan went to and then they fight its a cool concept and i wish it was canon cuz it would leave room for a lot of little story lines between episodes 1and 4

Iv'e grown to like Count Dooku (Darth Tyranus) the most out of all the prequel Sith. I like Maul but he lacked depth I find... not that he didn't have the potential to be a major villain he just was not meant to be.

Anyway... I was a fan of Christopher Lee before I saw Episode II and to see him play as a Star Wars villain like his old friend Peter Cushing was awesome. While he is old, I like the character and while some of you are thinking... "what's up with a eighty year old Sith apprentice!?"... I see it differently. While Dooku was technically the apprentice despite being Palpatine's senior in age, his master probably lured him to the dark side by treating Dooku as an equal... a partner in crime if you will. Referring to him as "my friend" like he did with Darth Vader.

Also, the thought of a wizened, old Jedi Master like Yoda becoming a Sith is frighting. I am able to suspend disbelief and see Count Dooku as the kick ass villian he is despite his (and the actors) age. Beside's he's no ordinary old geezer...

I say Palpatine. Mostly because of the way he manipulated an entire galaxy into making him the ruler, and then got rid of the opposing sides- and when in truth he did little to no physical work. (Save the duel between those Jedi on EP3, and Yoda.)

There's no way not to choose Palpatine. He manipulated the entire prequels and actually became Galactic Emperor. All on the deceptive Sith way and forfeiting his emotions.

I voted for Palpatine. Maul was very cool, but since he was so underused, and we never saw enough of him, he doesn't cut it as my favorite.

I voted for Vader, but I agree with what another poster said about Maul, he shouldn't have died as early and the way that he did. If anything, I believe they should have had a battle between Maul and Dooku to decide who would keep/take the Sith apprentice role at Sidious' side in Episode II. That of course would have had to end with Dooku winning somehow to further along the story plot, but that would have been a awesome duel.

Why not? Sidious didn't need Maul by that point - he'd just been made Supreme Chancellor. What happened to his apprentice on Naboo mattered little to him. The whole blockade and occupation of Naboo was simply a way of gaining the top seat in the Republic.

And, coincidentally, Qui-Gon Jinn's death caused Dooku to leave the Order, and walk straight into the arms of Sidious. And Maul would be pointless for the next phase of Sidious' plan. He no longer needed a blunt instrument such as Maul (let's face it, that's what he was trained to be).

For the next phase, he needed someone respectable, and had vast resources at their disposal. Who better than the recently retired Jedi Master who also happened to be the heir to a massive fortune? With Dooku's name, wealth, and political contacts, he was the perfect person to facilitate not only the creation of the Clone Army (through his elimination of Sifo-dyas, allowing him to take control of the creation) but also start the Separatist movement.

What would be the point? It wouldn't really serve anything, and by then it would have taken another 15 years for Sidious' plans to take hold.

And completely unneccessary. But, Dooku would have won because he is a superior fighter - Maul was just a kid with a toy in comparison.

I'm merely stating what would have been the most appealing to the average viewer compared to the background story that many people probably do not realize.

Maul became one of the most well liked Sith of all time, how much more appealing to the public would it have been to have Maul appear in the 2nd film. You still could have had the death of Qui-Gon Jinn and that still could have allowed Dooku to run to Sidious' hand because of Jinn's death.

If you say pointless, in the EU (while not canon) Vader is tested many times by Sidious, if Vader were to die at the hands of another in hopes of becoming a Sith, it would have been allowed.

If Dooku had beaten Anakin in Episode III, Sidious' would not have been disappointed being that it proved he had the stronger of the two. Not to mention coming up in the Clone Wars, Ventress is craving becoming a Sith. If Ventress was to kill Anakin then destory Dooku, Sidious' would have gladly taken her as his apprentice... Again, proving that Sidious' wants the strongest at his side. Another example, look at Sidous telling Luke to finish his father, Vader, in ROTJ, he wanted the strongest!

So pointless? Absolutely not! It still could have been very relevant in the story and not to mention, add much more appeal. Dooku defeating Maul in the 2nd film for the right to be at Sidious' side would have been more appealing and could have been just as meaningful, as the story line would have been only slightly changed. Still allowing all of Dooku's name, wealth, and political contacts to play the same role they did. No matter which way you shake it, it still would have been awesome to see two Sith formerly battle it out.

Got anything to back those two statements up? Maul has one line in the entire film, that's hard;y enough to allow him to be the 'most well liked sith of all time'.

And many of those tests were there because Sidious knew that Vader would suceed. For instance, when he sent one his Emperor's hands to kill him - He was no match for Vader - he just wanted to further stir his anger and hatred.

Where did I say that, exactly?

Ventress was nothing but a hack compared to Dooku and Anakin - she was designed merely to be used to test Anakin.

That's 19 years after all of the other events. By that time, Vader had served his purpose - destroying the Jedi and establishing the Empire.

More appeal to everyone, or just to you?

No, it wouldn't. It would have just been another pointless opportunity for the Maul fanboys to get themselves in a frenzy, over their stupidly pointless character.

Even you should know Maul was intriguing not because of his short dialogue in the first film, but rather his unique look and style of combat. Not to mention it was the first time many had seen a double bladed lightsaber, that also added a lot of appeal.

Also, I searched through google to back up my statement, and while I never found a concrete poll with a large collective of votes, I did find several websites where Maul was mentioned as one of the favorite Sith both in written articles as well as smaller polls. You can look at this forum alone, and they're are several Maul fans and even some who would probably deem him their favorite Sith.

You didn't, I merely stated that to further prove my point that Sidious goal was to always have the strongest apprentice, whether that had ended up being Dooku or Anakin.

I agree regarding Ventress, but you missed my point. I was not saying Ventress was as strong and cunning as Dooku or Anakin, I merely used it as an example to prove a point that if someone such as Ventress had in some fashion come out ahead and proved to be the stronger of the 3, Sidious would have gladly take her as his apprentice.

I have to laugh at this comment. George Lucas himself even admits it was a mistake to allow Darth Maul to die in the first movie. Why? It's simple, He was one of the most well liked Sith. Not to mention the Sith are known for betrayal and battles within themselves. Why not take advantage of that history, and allow the viewers to finally see a Sith vs. Sith duel? You say pointless, I say most viewers if given a vote on it, would be in favor it. I'm sorry to say, but I believe your in the minority in this discussion. I respect your opinion and your entitlement to it, but don't disregard others as pointless, just because YOU don't agree with it.
