Together at last.

Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan vs. Darth Maul is definitely the best in the prequels, but if we're doing all the movies, Luke vs. Vader in Empire takes the cake without competition.

Obi-Wan vs. Anakin

You consider this to be the best fight in the whole series?

Oh, good. I just combined the polls because apparently Jed doesn't know how to add new options.

As for best lightsaber fight in the whole series, I can't decide between Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi...

Yeah, fine, but at least that scene featured a villain whose motives we understood, and who... you know... spoke lines of dialogue.

The Maul fight was more about Obi Wan growing as a character.

But since we don't care about Qui-Gon, there's no emotional connection to the scene. His character is unbelievably boring. And the end of that scene still makes me laugh... Maul just stands there as Obi-Wan flips over him and slices him in half. Just terrible.

Seeing Liam Neeson die in any movie is sad.

Phantom Menace made me first realize that I was possibly confusing a decent actor with a great voice with a great actor.

A great voice goes a long way.
