1. Obi/Anakin duel

2. obi-jin/maul

3. anakin/dooku #2(because I loved anakin's face as dooku taunted him).

4. windu/palpy, although in response to IR2, I don't think GL gives a flying poop about Vapaad(or any other specific technique for that matter). The details of the fight in the novel were pretty good.

#3- I was going to put that I liked the Red Blue Red Blue on anakin's face during that fight.

#4- Yeah, for me Vaapad made him all the more bad arse!

Anakin vs. Obi-Wan is the most awesome lightsaber duel ever. There is no argument on this point. Wink

Yeah. At first I thought for sure they used stunt doubles/CGI. I was rather impressed when I found out they didn't.

My Favorite Duel is Anakin vs Obi-Wan. Epic Battle of Former best friends fighting to the Finish.

My 2nd Favorite is from Episode 1 Darth Maul vs Obi-Wan & Qui-Gon Jinn. another Awesome Lightsaber battle.

My problem with the Obi/Anakin duel is that it jumps in time, along with the Yoda/Sidious duel. I really hope that when the movies are re-released with more tweeks, we get the duels in their entirety. It's the only thing that really keeps me from appreciating them both.

Otherwise, my favorite duel is probably the Darth Maul triple battle.

I love the intercutting! We got two lightsaber battles AT THE SAME TIME!!!

Definitely my favorite, if I had to pick just one I'd pick Yoda/Palps. But a Yoda fan am I.

The best part is when Yoda Force pushes the two troopers into the wall. I remember that got a good laugh in theaters.

Oooo, oooo, ooo no wait. When Yoda Force pushes Palps over his desk!

I know, I felt the need to let people know because they might not figure it out otherwise.

It got laughs and many cheers in my theater. As did most things during the midnight release, like Mace and the Jedi entering Palpatine's office. I didn't see AOTC at midnight. I think it was a few days after it came out... but I remember incredibly loud cheering for the moments when you see Mace's back as he comes behind Dooku, and when you see Yoda's shadow when he arrives to fight Dooku. And that wasn't even at midnight! Star Wars fans are the best to watch with.

I recall the audience cheering "Yo-da, Yo-da, Yo-da, Yo-da," when he came to fight Dooku. It' wasn't midnight but I'd say it was opening weekend.

Always the best to watch with fans!

As for my favorite prequel duel...

I'd put Yoda and Palpatine first, followed by the Darth Maul three-way. Palpatine and Mace would probably be third, and then I guess I'd have to put Anakin and Obi-Wan (didn't like it as much as I thought I would).
