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?

No. I consider it to be the best fight in the prequel trilogy.

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.

This one's the best. And it's quite difficult.

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.
