    Which Death Star battle do you like the most, the Battle of Yavin or the Battle of Endor? I personally prefer the Battle of Yavin because of the Trench Run and the classic "Use the Force Luke".

    Endor. Best space battle on film to date.

    Endor easily. Yavin wasn't so much of a battle as it was endless trench runs.

    Tough one. Endor is good when it's the space battle, and the Emperor/Vader/Skywalker aspect. But the Ewoks detract from it.

    Endor, definately. Best space battle to this day. I remember walking out of Independence Day in 1996 thinking, "Cool, but still not as cool as ROTJ space battle. The tunnel run with all the fighters is pure model/miniature mastery.

    I really liked the sort of eery feel of the Yavin battle, I thought the way it was done with the fighters flying around over the seemingly endless Death Star Surface was cool. However I voted for Endor because as far as battles go, it is awesome in all ways. The Yavin battle felt more like the climax of a thriller movie to me rather than a real gung-ho battle sequence. Both very cool in different ways.

    The Battle of Yavin has to be the pick for me.

    I remember first watching Lando fly into the 2nd DS in ROTJ and thinking...hey didnt Luke do this already, it just seemed to me to be a more detailed version of the same attack?.

    Have to be Yavin for nostalgia sake. First Death Star I had ever seen blown up. ;)

    Ugh. Hard to pick. They are both amazing. The spectacle of both were amazing. The music was top notch as well.

    I had to go for the Battle of Yavin, it gripped me from start to finish as all the pilots were systematically wiped out by Vader and his wingmen, would Luke triumph or would the Death Star destroy the Rebel base??? (plainly obvious the Rebels would win but to a 7 year old, it was soooo exciting!!!). Effectswise the Battle of Endor was jaw droppingly spectacular up on the big screen, it was Yavin ramped up to 10!!! The model work alone in this sequence still holds up today and still gives me a tingle when all those TIEs stream toward the Falcon's cockpit. It was a hard choice as they both kick ass.

    Oh, I'm sure it's one of the two.
