Best death scene in star wars?

which of the listed death scenes is your favourite?


i would have to say obi-wan's. i love the way he looks at Luke with a slight grin before letting vader strike him down. and then the way vader steps on obi's empty robe, thinking wtf?

Definately the scene where Shmi dies in Anakin's arms. That was so emotional!

Over all it was a VERY hard decision, though, except for when Obi-wan slices Darth Maul in half. That gets my vote for cheesiest death.

when palpatine gets thrown over the edge. the music during that scene was so fitting and gave me goosebumps.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Yoda's death, because while not flashy, it was very moving and he departed while guiding Luke to fulfill his destiny

The best scene in Star Wars will have to be at the end of episode IV... When Luke, Han and Chewie walks down the path in the throne room and the Rebell Alliance is lined up... and Leia is waiting at the end, with the medals... and all this while John Williams' "Throne Room / End Tittle" plays! It gives me goosebumps!

The 1st failed trench run where the music slows down after Vader shoots down Red Leader and luke knows it's up to him to blow the death star up - sends shivers down your spine!!! Not a death scene as such, but loads of people die, so I think it qualifies!

what about when biggs dies? luke and him never got to catch up on old times. and luke was forced to shrug it off cuz he knew he was the last hope for blowing up the death star.

Quite, but id have to say that Jengo getting decap'd would have to be the best!
wouldn't it be funny as hell if jengos head fell out of the helmet when boba picks his head up after the battle!????
lol i could just invision that!!!

im voting vaders end.

and the cheesiest is a few scenes earlier.... palpatine's death..
that one should have been more spectacular then that.
i mean he is the frikken LORD of the sith and he gets pushed over a balcony.... even maul had a better death then that.

vaders end was more emotional....a father finally looking upon his son after all the years of evil in his blood. it was amazing.

Vaders death. Starwars is Darth Vaders story, so when he dies, it's the most tragic moment of all six films. (i know that already.)
It's more emotional, luke is even sadder then when Obi-wan died, he even stops for a last father and son moment while he is in the same mortal peril as when Obi-wan died aboard the first death star (wich is my second favorite death scene.)

EDIT:
Quote:

First of all, the dark side in him was taking over, he was bent on destroying luke so he didn't pay attention to anything else.
Second of all, Vader got him by surprise. Would you expect your best friend to grab you from the behind and throw you in a reactor core?
Third and last of all, He didn't just got pushed, vader lifted him, and while he was carrying him to that hole palpatine hit him hard with his force lightning WICH caused vader to die. That's remarkably less lame, right?

The best death scene in the Star Wars movies is when Obi-Wan raises his lightsaber, points it in the air, and glances over at Luke with a smile on his face - right as Vader strikes him down. I'll never forget the first time I saw that.

uhmm he is a jedi... dark and sith like.. but still a jedi. a jedi sences the emotiobnal differences in people. and they get warned when they are threatend. he HAD to have noticed vader. NO way he couldnt have. pushed / lifted.. whats the difference? its still lame.. he was the most powerfull sith (not including vader... still an apprentice to the years of experience of palpatine) ... he should have met a far more cooler fate then that

but could the technology at the time offer anything else? nowadays GL probably woulda had something really sweet, but i dont think it coulda been done too much "better" back then. IMO.

I voted Jango's death. It was just supreme badass the way Mace charged him and took his head off with one clean stroke.

I keep hearing people say Lucas would have given Palpy a better death if he had up-to-date technology back then. i wouldn't count on it, he likes killing of characters in a lame way. Remember how Boba Fett went down?

Thank God he didn't have "up-to-date" technology. It'd be some CG gloryfest. Ew.

Am I the only one who thinks Palpatine's death was cool? Getting... "shafted" like that. HAHAHAHAHAHA.


....

Sorry. What about Porkin's? The guy who could barely fit in his X-Wing? The guy whose sheer mass plumetted his X-Wing down towards the Death Star's hull (if the Death Star even made some sort of gravitional field).

Great poll, Siv.

Obi-Wan's and Anakin's are definately the best way to go. Qui-Gon's was very sad, especially at the funeral when you see Jar Jar crying. If more people like Jar Jar, that scene may be one of the most touching in all of the saga.
