Problems with your poll include:

"Anakin vs. Obi-Wan"

You mean Vader vs. Obi-Wan.

"Anakin vs. Separatists"

The murdering of a group of defenseless people is not a duel. If you don't know what a "duel" is, it's two people fighting. And even if this poll option made sense, it would be Vader, not Anakin.

"Palpatine vs. other three Jedi"

Again, a "duel" is TWO people fighting. To make sense it should just be Palpatine vs. Mace.



Anyway, enough corrections, the best duel is clearly Vader vs. Obi.

All of them I guess, all the fighting in the movie was great.

And for the sepratists fight, ya the slaughtering of Nute Gunray and his other weak friends is nothing to be proud of, or even to call a fight, more like an execution.

Obi-Wan vs. Anakin.
The Darth Maul duel is still the best, imo.

I thought the Vader vs Obi duel was rubbish because all you could see was a blur of blue light, and the Palpatine against Mace and 3 other Jedi was pathetic 5 seconds in and only mace and Palpatine are left, I know hes a sith lord but I doubt that he could kill 3 Jedi without any of them even trying to block him.

The best duel was obviously Anakin vs Count Douke, I think people forget how great that one was because Its at the start.

I think the best duel choreography wise is Maul/Jinn/Kenobi.

Overall, it is hard to say. I love the one in ESB...

In RotS, it was definately Obi-Wan vs Anakin. I'm not sure about out of all the movies though...

It's true that Palpetine could strike down Jedi masters like Kit Fitso in 2 seconds, I know they wanted to highlight the Mace vs Palpetine stuff. But really Palpetine should've been killed, I know it doesn't fit but 4 Jedi, most masters would easily defeat him. I mean c'mon Mace defeated him fairly easily, how did the other 3 die so quick? Also I hated how Mace died, with his amazing speed with that LS he should of been able to block Anakin's attack and take both Sith on.

I agree. The Jedi to survive more than 2 seconds (other than Mace) did so because Mace blocked the attack for him, its pathetic I could have done better than than.

Considering Palpatine is easily one of the most powerful Sith Lords of all time, I can say without hesitation that lasting even that long against him was an amazing feat.

Agreed. Thats the best choreographed fight. There is an amazing timing and flow to the fight. Definitley one of the best in film history, IMHO.

Still, the Anikan/Obi-Wan duel was the most emotional and easiest to get caught up in. It also had one of the best lines of Star Wars, though it kinda came just after the actual fight.

For the emotion, and actual good acting, of the Anikan / Obi-wan fight, it gets my vote.

I think that only has the best Choreography because Ewan (McGregor) and Ray (Park)were very young,and they had the Staff to experiment.

Kit Fisto took part in the Battle of Geonosis, and has come back alive from there... He resisted during several hours against an entire army of Droids, and only some seconds against Palpatine !... How do you explain that ?

I agree. It was way too short, and Grievous got his ass wopped way to easily. 2 hits and he lost a hand, another 2 hits and he lost another. Then he ran, and got killed by a Blaster. That doesn't sound like the General Grievous in the Clone Wars Cartoons!

LOL!, but still, Grievous had FOUR SABERS! He just looked really cool. The best though, was Sidious v. Yoda. "At an end, your rule is."
