Here's the way I see it; 1. Obi-Wan: A great general in the clone wars, not only for his battle prowess but also for his negotiation skills. To be a Jedi is to seek balance and Obi has this balance. 'Nuff said. 2. Qui-Gon: Just because he was bested in personal combat means nothing in the greater scheme of things. You have to remember that Jinn and Kenobi were the first to face off with a Sith in over a millenia. His sacrifice allowed Kenobi to know what a real saber fight was like, giving him the ability to battle the way he could later on (most jedi have never truly used their sabers in single combat with another saber user). This and his ability to read the living force make him one helluva jedi. I mean c'mon, the whole jedi spirit thing, that was all him! 3. Luke: This kid brough balance to the force! And not only that, he managed it mostly by himself. It's one thing to be a powerful jedi having been brough up in the temple...it's another entirely to only find out that you have the ability when you're a teenager, and then to be taught sporadically, but still manage to have the power to defeat a Sith Lord!(I know...that point could be contested...technically Vader wasn't defeated, and Vader defeated Palps). In any case, he was the founder of the NJO, making him a great Jedi. After them...it doesn't really matter...I suppose Yoda and Anakin would be up there...but meh...this is good enough for me.
