    I don't know if I have a favorite, to be honest. The Jedi/Sith conflict is the true core of it all and without that element, it wouldn't be Star Wars, but the way it's intertwined with the political conflicts - and the personal conflicts - is what makes it so great in the end. All the layers strengthen eachother and make the war seem all the more urgent, thereby creating a fantastic whole. Remove one element and the war would look entirely different. When you think about it, the Jedi/Sith conflict is the political conflict and vice versa.
    Therefore, my favorite is all of the above.





    - If they're not all destroyed, it will be civil war without end.
    - With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy!

    I actually think that Rebel/Empire without Jedi/Sith is more Star Wars than Jedi/Sith without Rebel/Empire. Just my opinion.

    That's cool. Different fans will love the movies in different ways. A sign of the many-layered nature of Star Wars!





    - What a piece of junk!
    - From your point of view.

    Favorite: The Republic vs CIS. Both are right and wrong. Each has good and bad guys, but little do they each know they're being stringed along by the same guy that is the true villain

    Honorable mention: Jedi vs Sith. Once in awhile I get a little tired of Jedi vs Sith. I hope to see more non Jedi vs Sith related conflicts in the spinoff movies. But after that I do like the conflict. The Jedi are or try to be the good guys- the light, but they are incredibly flawed. Then you have the Sith who are similar minus how they approach the Force. Also this might be an unpopular opinion but I actually like the Rule of Two. I think it's actually unique to have the villains limit their numbers and smart since they don't like to share power.

    Least favorite: I might get some hate for this but Rebellion vs Empire. Honestly I feel like we've seen the big guy vs the little guy conflict a thousand times in movies, books, etc

    Anakin vs Himself





    Alright, alright, I'll pick a real one. Jedi vs Sith. Really it's the one that all the other conflicts come from. I love the idea of this multi-millennial Holy War between two factions of sorcerers, one that has built, defined, and destroyed society multiple times over. When Obi Wan and Qui Gon toss aside their robes and stand before Darth Maul, lightsabers drawn, there's a matter-of-factness to it all that blows me away; this is just what they do, this is their purpose. Jedi fight Sith, Sith fight Jedi. Wash, rinse, repeat. You get a sense in that moment that this has happened before dozens upon dozens of times throughout history.

    And to think, that shadow of a war could seep into other institutions and cause the rise and fall of entire civilizations? Wow.

    To me, Rebels vs. Empire embodies the true core of Star Wars: democracy vs. dictatorship.

    As a kid when I was introduced to Star Wars, the duel between Ben and Vader was the highlight of the movie and it remained that way for many years. Jedi vs Sith it is.

    Kinda exactly why it fell flat for me when I grew up and learned about what "democracy vs dictatorship" was and that it's not anything like SW in real life. To that extent the CIS-Republic conflict felt far more believable as far as the factions having both just and unjust motivations.

    But that's not why I like the CIS-Rep conflict the best. I just like it because it's an actual full scale galactic war rather than a counter-insurgency/insurgency conflict with the occasional large fleet action

    But it's not "democracy vs dictatorship"...not in the sense of an allegedly 'real world' political 'reality'. It is Empire vs Freedom. Just because our ruling classes have worked to convince us they aren't really Empire..that "we're all in this together"..that somehow there is an external, foreign threat that means that, in some way, we should be thankful that there are those who are willing to step forward and rule us for our own benefit...and keep us "safe and secure" - doesn't mean that we should trust to that idea.

    There are elements within the CIS v Republic war that I think are interesting. I just wish it had been handled better.

    Well Obi-Wan/Anakin and Luke/Vader are two of my favorite parts of the entire Saga; so I guess I have to go with Jedi vs Sith.
