Why do we keep Saying? Jedi/Sith X can never beat Jedi/Sith Y because the forcepowers........yada yada yada Relics.......yada yada yada lightsaber form...............

In my personal experience in hand to hand combat. martial arts, combat sport. "Every dog has it's day." Provided there is a certain skill level and proper motivation.

I tend to find that whoever fights dirtiest wins.
The Ewoks will rise and under my rule will invade the galaxy!

So sayeth I Darth Grub, the universe's ONLY Ewok Sith Lord!

It all depends on their power level.

Well Jedi/Sith X has a power level of over nine thousand, while Jedi/Sith Y is only 4,000.

Though you have a point. It's not always cut and paste, this guy always wins, the great Sith/Jedi can make a mistake. Look at Darth Maul, he easily outmatched both Qui Gon and Obi Wan, when he was still 2 years younger then Obi Wan at the time. His abilities surpassed them, but his Downfall was letting his guard down when he believed Obi Wan had no way of fighting back, he thought he didn't have to worry, but due to this Obi Wan surprised and beat him.

Sidious will usually win a fight, but have a thousand replay fights against another sith, say Vitiate, and Sidious would lose at least once.

Not just the fans, but the sanctioned writers as well. Post-Episode-VI really did get to be like Dragonball Z, and it's hard for me to enjoy anything Star Wars related when I'm reminded of how the plot will eventually turn to ****.

Just look at the ending of Episode VI. Even the all-powerful Sideous was killed in a normal manner. That gave his power a great deal more meaning.

Well-put! I have heard countless people go on and on about Maul's death. What you say is absolutely true and can be seen in every single PVP game. The winner likes to taunt, gloat and bask in their glory, only to get shot in the back. Gears of War 3's execution ability is the perfect example.

Ah....Han Solo killed Palpatine in the EU :P so he died a normal way there too, blaster to the back.

Was that his final death? I couldn't read anymore after I learned that Palpatine had a cloning facility where his soul could be infinitely reborn. Reading past that was almost physically painful.
