NOTE - I am not adding episode 7 in there as well, just the classic trilogy and the prequel trilogies... Sorry.

Yeah I know... I just thought the topic would make more sense in SWGB Heaven.



Though I could be wrong.

Wow, that thread is...wow.

My favorite lightsaber fight:


Though I have to say, while action sequences are one thing that rarely stands out as being better in the book, this one was. Neither Inigo Montoya nor Westly managed to sell me that they were exceptional duelists in the film. Of course, deliberate campiness is the name of the game in the film, so there's that.

I'm quite fond of the Palpatine vs Maul vs Savage duel in The Clone Wars, mostly because I like to think that Palpatine is a surrogate for the viewer. He sees Maul and Savage gallivanting around with Black Sun and declaring themselves Mandalore and threatening to make the Clone Wars into some sort of weird three-way and he's all like "That's enough of that" and then steps in to restore some sanity to the whole thing. It made me hope all the stupid plots in TCW would be resolved by Palpatine beating someone up.

Why is this not something that happened?

Anyway, saw this one again recently, and while I never could get into SWTOR, I thought all their cinematics were pretty good (though the one on Alderaan was just full of WTF moments, like that weird force-push-defends-against-lightsabre-stab-to-the-point-where-PURE-ENERGY-BEAM-STARTS-TO-CRACK moment) and I liked the fight in this one. It was very glitzy and showy, but looked pretty and incorporated force use into the fight well, in ways that lots of lightsabre fights just don't.



Love how no one has actually answered Keno's quesion yet tho.

No, she was using Force Absorb. Used to be it just worked on blasters... but Jennifer Hale is awesome enough to make it work on lightsaber stabs.

Since when? In the P&P RPG at least it worked on any energy weapon, including lightsabers. Same with Jedi Academy. And KotOR2.

True; in both games it was basically just a shield. I know one of the P&P books--don't recall if it was RCR or SAGA--depicted a Jedi using it to stop a lightsaber blade with his/her hand, though.

WOW... I've been waiting for this topic to get a response and it does not light up as an active topic until I click on it and realize it's been answered with 10 posts already! Why didn't it say anything!?

Seriously, which lightsaber duel was your favorite and yes, I also said which scene in which episode too.

Here, I'll start: Episode 3, Anakin Skywalker vs Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now you guys go.

Anakin versus Obi-Wan was overblown and dragged on too long until the moment that the entire trilogy was built around became boring and irritating.

Agreed. Honestly, all of the Prequel fights were well choreographed but lacked the effective storytelling of the OT fights. Like the PT themselves, they were flashy but vacuous.

To give a serious answer, then, my favorite would probably be the Luke vs. Vader fight from RotJ, which was a nice balance of choreography and storytelling.

That's right up there with Ep.4 Obi-Wan vs. Vader, where apparently the hips and waist are the only part of the body allowed to move during the fight. *the awkward moment when you realize lightsaber fights are actually bellydancing*

Yeah, actually that one was pretty good... Okay, I'll go with that one. Sad that there's no video of that one.

That actually happened in the rebel campaign of SWGB Saga and Echuu took the Vor'Na'Tu and shattered it before the fight commenced, if I remember correctly.
Yoda vs Dooku. So deep.
Okay, I know that wasn't supposed to sound sexual, but...

I think he viewed them like Cushing: not the best work he did, but something for his grandchildren to have fun with. No real regrets, though.
