    I went with Imperial March, simply cos of its iconic sensibility. The minute one hears that theme begin, they know what is coming.

    I think I actually prefer the overall sound and arrangement of Duel of the Fates more though. I don't know-it's close!

    The Imperial March, because it's Darth Vader's theme. Sometimes it's a theme for the Empire itself.
    Duel of the Fates is amazing too, but it's not a character theme. It's mainly suited for an intense duel, thus I feel it was misused a little in AotC.

    I've always viewed the Duel of the Fates to be a theme representing the struggle between the Jedi and the Sith as a whole. I suppose that is one reason why I'd vote for that one.

    Duel of the Fates. Easily. There's no contest despite how iconic the Imperial March is.

    Duel Of The Fates because it slowly builds up and the choir singing. It's amazing!

    Duel of the Fates. I find it more pleasant to listen to, but The Imperial March holds a special place.

    They're both amazing. I'll have to say Imperial March though.

    Battle of the Heroes should be an option, especially when it was mixed with DOTF during the Yoda / Sidious battle.

    Both have their place in their respective contexts, and fit in perfectly where they are played, so no ranking to be had from me:D

    Love both, but definitely Imperial March. It has that same iconic status as the Main Title

    Imperial March, but this was really tough to choose between the two.

    They're both gangbusters, but The Imperial March, as it is more easily adapted for an instrument, like a guitar, to play on its own.

    All about that melody...

    Funny, I just made a _____ vs. _____ thingy for my sister, and that was one of the questions ;) I'd have to say Duel of the Fates although Imperial March is definitely iconic. I like both :qui::vader:
