    Vader Said "If you only knew the power of the Dark Side."
    There may have been validity to his statement.
    The Sith/Dark Side fight with anger and passion.

    Look What happened when a Jedi "Crosses over to the Dark side temporarily":

    1. Obi-Wan kills Maul after Maul kills Qui-Gon. Imagine the emotion and agner of loosing a mentor and a friend.

    2. Anakin kills Dooku kills after Dooku injurs Obi-Wan. He was very angery and passionate (just look at his face.)

    3. Luke cuts off Vader's arm after hearing that Vader knows Leia is his sister.

    You may say that Anakin lost to Obi-Wan when he was angery. But at that point he is already a Sith at this point. So he does not Apply.

    Agree or Disagree?

    Obi Wan lost while angry in his duel with Maul. It wasn't until he calmed down and used his brain that he won.

    "Anakin kills Dooku kills after Dooku injurs Obi-Wan. He was very angery and passionate (just look at his face.)"

    Anakin wasn't that mad, Dooku barely touched Obi-wan (literally), he killed Dooku because Sidious told him to.

    Obi-Wan won through the common sense, not the Dark Side. Qui-Gon lost because Maul was the better swordsman, stronger and younger.

    Anakin didn't lose through anger either, he lost through overconfidence and arrogance. Obi-Wan warned him not to try and jump to match the high ground, but Anakin though Obi-Wan would miss.

    "Age matters not."

    Qui-Gon lost because Darth Maul pulled a dirty trick and caught him unawares, not because of his age. If age truly mattered, Obi-Wan would have never lost to Count Dooku . . . twice.

    hit the nail on the head brother, do it. You got it right there. The Dark Side is always maniacal, angry, passionate, unthinking. Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Mace Windu, Yoda, Luke (for the most part) were either defensive, or very calm and calculating about their fights, much unlike others. Also I believe a major difference is the religion of the Force. "There is no death, there is only the Force" is an old Jedi saying. Jedi served a greater purpose than themselves, so they always tried to make the best decisions in regards to their problems. Dark Jedi/Sith tend to be right here/right now, destroy, gain power whatever, they serve only themselves.
