Mousebot, and others have suggested that we keep our focus on AOTC and not the entire saga. Well OK, let's examine Obi-Wan vs. Mace in AOTC. Obi jumps through a window, god only knows how many stories up, and flys through Coruscant on an assassin droid. Eventually the droid gets shot out from under him and he falls through a countless number of vehicles before Anakin rescues him. He survived that. Obi-Wan, flys to Kamino where he has a perilous run-in with Jango that leaves him hanging over the side of a building. He survived that. Obi-wan then follows Jango to Geonosis where he evades seismic charges as well as Slave 1's lasers. Later on the surface he manages to survive an attack by a droideka (true, he was eventually caught, but he survived). In the arena he survives the vicious attack of the acklay, as well as any number of battle droids. He survived that. Later he fights Dooku, who is many times stronger than he, but he survived that, now didn't he? ***************** Mace, let's see. He said "This party's over" and then got fire sprayed all over him by Jango. He survived that (but lost his robe, tsk tsk). Then he fought and killed Jango (big deal, give my Grandma a light saber and she could do the same). So really, how does Mace in any way compare to Obi-Wan in this film?
