    I got the plot point that Obi-Wan was throwing the fight to stall, that was obvious, it's the being tossed all around that gets to be too much for me.

    Cartoonish is a point of view. If you ask me. The fight was very well done compared, again, with the duel from the Hardeen arc or the fight between Anakin and Obi-Wan on Orondia or the duel in Rish Loo's hideout.
    The one in the end of the arc was more or less silly - seriously, Dooku threw forks and plates at Anakin and then blocked his attack with a chair.
    The fight on Orondia - short, a kick in the nuts and more silly than this one with D'Nar.
    The duel in hideout on Naboo - Dooku was throwing lamps at Anakin - cartoony to the max or Anakin and Dooku are fighting like a married couple now.

    Point is, this fight was more or less for stalling of time. Obi-Wan just improvised moves to occupy D'Nar. It is was not meant to be pretentious like the duels on Naboo. Compared to the duels on Naboo, this one had a purpose for what it was.

    If by "moves" you mean cracking his skull, getting flung to the floor, getting thrown into objects and all without a "creditable" attempt to "fight" - yeah, it was well done improv on Obi-Wan's part. :p

    Yeah, Obi-Wan should have been like Pernell Whitaker that fight. Hard to hit, and even when hit it's blocked, deflected or the impact is lessened in some way.

    He is supposed to be a master of defense, after all. He does have Jedi reflexes, the ability to see things before they happen.

    I'm not saying he can't be touched (that would be kinda boring, let him take a shot or two), but he should have been able to slip a significant number of the blows directed at him.
