What's your favorite duel in the OT? I'm going to have to go with Luke and Vader in ROTJ.

Hmm I really do like that duel. However, I'm going to go with the Bespin duel between Luke and Vader. Its equal in my opinion to the ROTJ duel sword play wise BUT unlike the other duels this includes the very dramatic revelation that Darth Vader is Anakin Skywalker.

I don't know...most of them are pretty amazing in their own way.

What about a one-on-one ship duel? The one I think of that is great is Episode IV, when Luke has that TIE on his tail and Wedge comes flying in from the front and blows it to pieces! ...Not much of a duel, but a cool fight nonetheless Smile

I, too, like that action sequence. My favorite duel, though, is the famous throne room duel. It's just so... classic; red and green clashing, while the Emperor sits there, just watching.

Plus, the Emperor's cackling. It still makes me furious, everytime I hear it.

Ewoks vs Stormies. Those little teddy bears are vicious!

ESB duel, hands down, although the ROTJ duel was great.

The ROTJ duel. The Bespin duel was amazing, but there's something about that final fight that was just moving and heart wrenching because you knew Vader was having second thoughts and that he couldn't kill his son. And of course now that the new trilogy is out we know he was fulfilling his duty as the chosen one at the end of the duel. Such a fantastic fight.

ROTJ duel. I love it when Darth Vader throws his lightsaber at Luke.

Lando and Han vs Sarlacc. Epic comedy Laughing

Han Solo: [as Lando is being dragged down by Sarlaac] Chewie, give me the gun! Don't move, Lando!
Lando Calrissian: No, wait! I thought you were blind!
Han Solo: It's alright, I can see a lot better! Don't move!
Lando Calrissian: Up a little higher! Just a little higher!

In The Original Trilogy.

Empire Strikes Back. Great Fight.
Return Of The Jedi. A Really Good Fight.
A New Hope. I hated this Fight.
