I think too, that Ep 3 will be the greatest...
I disagree - the fight was pretty good but I would liked to have seen a little more of the two-fisted sabre combat and sabre fights are best seen in long shots. In the middle of the Anakin-Dooku fight suddenly we go to close ups of their faces with just sabre flashes for several seconds - cheap and looked terrible.
Best fight so far is still in Episode I. Maul taking on two jedi with the double-bladed lightsabre rules. Many more imaginative and athletic moves pulled off.
Although Dooku's demonstration of his dark force powers was pretty impressive.
"At this stage I believe I now understand the truth, which is that Lucas has gone over to the dark side. He is a Darth Billionaire ruling an empire, and is no longer leading a rebellion. He was once a semi-independent force, overshadowed by a dark and powerful business, but still managed to beat the odds and on his own terms, but now he sits on a throne with lightning in his hands and a franchise in his clenched fist."
