Obi Wan vs. Anakin in Revenge of the Sith.  And there's no close second.

I'll have to decide between the duel.in Empire and in Jedi. The Obi-Wan/Anakun duel in RotS is impressive but also a bit too excessively flashy, as Jed mentioned.

Assuming we get more I'd love to see some duels inspired by (but not totally imitating) wuxia sequences like the sword fight in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

There's not a single duel in the prequels that isn't incredibly excessive. I don't understand the appeal at all.

Going with Jedi, but I really love the RotS fight too. Jedi is just more emotionally investing for me.
