Definitely Darth Maul vs QuiGon Jin/Obiwan ... it's the first time I see a double-sided lightsaber (really fascinated by the creativity), and the martial arts between Maul vs Obiwan is fantastic (no nonsensical gravity-defiant jumps like Matrix, but actual actions just like HK kongfu show) ... :roll:

I also used to like the Darth Maul vs QuiGon Jin/Obiwan & Dark Maul vs Obiwan duels. Its the best of Obiwan I seen. Yes, all becos of the double edge lightsabers.

My current fav is the Sidious vs Windu, though its only for short while. There's nothing fancifuls, no leaps or somersaults, but I like the simplicity of it, like traditional martial arts. Windu fights quite like a Kendo master.

Come on guys!!! The three way in Episode I was the absolute best fight ever!!!! The episode II fights were lame and badly filmed and Episode III while good become a little over-worn after awhile especially the final duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin. The Empire Strikes Back fight was also good but compared to the three way, it just doesn't measure up anymore. To me, the three way was the absolute best. And the death of Qui-Gon certainly made it even more emotional thanks to the tremendous presence of Liam Neeson.

I think the light saber battle between Count Dooku and Yoda was missed out.

My jaws dropped when I first saw Yoda jumping all over the place.
:o

My jaws dropped too - from laughter. I hated that scene!

I thought that the Yoda / Palpatine fight was much better than the jumping frog scene in Episode II.

IMHO

I agree with you Gandalf Fett. That scene was so badly done. I was wondering why Lucas would allow such a poor scene in.

Because the problem is that they were so concerned with how and whether or not it can be done as opposed to whether or not it SHOULD be done.

They were so concerned with the technical wonder that they have created and they completely forgot about other factors such as realism. characters, heart and most importantly, a good script.
