Kit Fisto- had problems vs Asajj Ventress which is a joke..General Grievous,not even a force user.A jedi master of great skill as you ppl describe him should not boast that he killed a cyborg,even if he is a famous jedi killer.
Obi-Wan Kenobi- one of the most pathetic jedi i have seen in all Star Wars franchise in terms of prowess.He has his Soresu and thats it.The ''Choosen one'' was drunk with the dark side and not knowing what he was doing in the Mustafar accident.
Cin Drallig and Plo Kloon,powerful in their own right,still not impressive as the jedi of the Old Republic.
Ki-Adi Mundi fared a whole lot better than most Jedi. His heightened reflexes allowed him to fight back, but it wasn't enough. Overwhelming firepower was too much. Of course that would happen to most Jedi.

If you understood Shii-Cho, you would know that Ventress' use of Makashi was too much for Fisto. Makashi being the scissors to Shii-Cho's paper.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was a great Jedi. One of the most skilled swordsmen in the Order, and a very powerful Jedi Master. At least read up on him before saying such things.

If you are talking feats, then you would be correct. Of course feats aren't indicative of power and skill.

Understand that those mentioned above were the best in their chosen form. Yoda mastered Ataru to the highest extent. Mace Windu could be considered an equal swordsman to Yoda (having defeated Darth Sidious). Obi-Wan was THE Soresu Master. Anakin Skywalker was THE master of Djem So.

I believe the reason they aren't impressive to you is because they don't go around killing hundreds of Sith and blowing up giant space stations. Does one need to do that in order to be great? Does someone need to fight in wars for their entire life to be considered great?
