    There one for the OT, now there's one for the PT!

    (there would be one for the Saga, but not enough vote options allowed :( )

    Gonna say, while I enjoy them all, Duel of Fates (Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi vs Darth Maul) has always been my #1

    Obi-Wan Kenobi vs Anakin Skywalker in ROTS comes a close #2

    I decided to vote for this poll with the mindset of someone just turning on the fights without any prior knowledge of Star Wars. So yes, the Anakin and Obi-Wan battle in Ep3 is the most emotional; however, I've always liked Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan versus Maul the best as a pure, technical fight.

    Maul's strength was shown as he fought two Jedi simultaneously as his first real test after being trained by Sidious. Then, he is too oblivious to realize that Obi Wan was coming right up to slice him in half.

    So tragic.

    I was torn on this one. For the actual fighting I would pick Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul (particularly for his entrance scene, the Jedi getting rid of their robes etc.), but I ended up picking Yoda vs Dooku. The look on his face when he hears Yoda's walking stick is a fantastic bit of acting, and I just love Dooku as a character. I love the civilised discussion between Yoda and Dooku while they're trying to maim each other.

    In terms of battles, I chose (obviously) Maul vs Obi/Qui Gon.

    However, I was close to picking Sidious vs Yoda in the senate building, not because of the lightsaber combat, but more because of (a) the epic scope of the situation when they rise up into the senate building (b) the epic music and (c) the general way it was shot on film. Really enjoyed that scene, thought it was by far one of the best of the trilogy.

    I picked the final TPM duel because it's the only one without any blatantly awkward moments. Although I'm not the biggest fan of the way it ended and how Darth Maul suddenly became an idiot at the end.

    EDIT: The Mace vs Palpatine duel was awesome as well, but I didn't really like the way he took down the other 3 Jedi Masters.

    What's wrong with that. I loved the clash of the sabers after it. It was like they were scoping each other out in a split second before the next move!

    I liked that scene so much that I actually learned the move with a lightsaber...

    Palpatine pulling out his lightsaber was so unexpected when I first saw ROTS. It will always stand out to me. I love Ian's acting in that scene.

    Duel of the Fates was my answer for the longest time, but I'm starting to lean towards Anakin vs. Obi-Wan in Sith. The former is masterful for its sword choreography, but the latter packs a bigger emotional punch, feeling at once like a fist fight between brothers and a conflict of more mythic, world-shattering proportions. And, with apology to tired internet memes, the moment of saber posturing was a flourish I greatly appreciated. It was like the two unconsciously slipped into a training room rhythm for a second, a very appropriate occurrence for this unique blue vs. blue encounter.

    There all great but ultimately I have to pick the one between Yoda & Sidious. So bad ass and epic.

    I feel the same about this. I loved the blue vs. blue saber duel. It made you look at them like equals and brothers. It was so cool to see that emotional fight within the physical one.

    Still can't figure out why people hate this move. Its incredibly obvious that they are doing some sort of call on the Force for a smashing hit. Much like a "killing blow" in a computer game where you have to "charge up" first before you strike.
