Furthermore if you play through the EP3 game for PS2/XBox, you can unlock that duel (Vader vs. Kenobi on Death Star 1). THAT is how the duel should have gone.

I'd have loved to see Vader and Kenobi doing flips and stuff. Don't give me that "but they were old" stuff either. We now know that Kenobi was in his late 50s, and Anakin/Vader was in his 40s. That's not that old. Add in the Force component and they ought to be able to do some cool stuff. Let us also not forget to mention that Darth Vader had cybernetic implants. Look at the 6 million dollar man, or the bionic woman. Vader should have been able to crazy awesome stunts even without the Force.

Look at Yoda. He was 800+ years old by the time of EP2 & EP3. He was doing crazy mad moves guided by the Force. Look at Darth Sidious in EP3. When dueling Mace Windu he was doing cool acrobatic moves too. I'd figure he's no younger than the 50 age mark. Nope, I refuse to even acknowledge the whole "old fellas" concept.

Again I'm not referring to the original footage or EP4. I'm saying Lucasfilm should have rendered new CG content showing a more spectacular duel. Sure keep some of the original footage, but add in all new stuff and make it hella awesome.

I guess we'll have to wait for the next time GL releases the SW anthology.
yes , you are right .

I think it would be Heresy to even think of altering ANH, if the prequels gave the impression that Jedi of middle age should be able to triple somersault to parry while causing an avalanche with the force, then thats a reflection on Lucas and his inconsistent Storytelling, not ANH... I did however wish they had paid some more attention to making the Lightsaber Blades like that of the PT, especially ANH and ROTJ... ESB seemed to have petty good Blade Colors/thickness

I agree , Unless there is extra footage that could really enhance the already classic encounter , ( Which is suppose to be a '64' yr old hermit and a Mechanical thug , in a corner of the Death Star , who both have'nt really been Jedi's in 20 yrs ) than to completely mess with a masterwork like Star Wars: A New Hope '77' for the sake of making it more 'Razzle Dazzle' or 'Prequel Friendly" is just stupid. That being said , I'm sure they will continue to futher enhance the lightsaber's in the film.
