Since Episode 3 i as always wondering if Mace was greatest duelist that ever lived?

I mean he defeated Emperor 1v1 , nobody did that ever... Lame Anakin cut off his hand, he would finish him for sure..

Mace Windu was both very wise and incredibly talented fighter along with destructive Vaapad sytle

I really regrest that he died. I doubt anyone would have strength to defeat him.

Even Yoda had so much trouble with Darth Sidious.

What are your toughts?
Perhaps i can find new ways to motivate them?

He's over rated. The Anakin that beat Dooku would have beaten Windu. Also, Palp let Windu "win" in order to turn Anakin. Why would Palp keep shooting his force lightning if it was really hurting him by being reflected? He would just simply stop doing it if he were in any real danger. That was obviously all show in order to convince Anakin that the Jedi were the true evil.

Mabye, but still would be very intresting too see them fight to the death, personaly i think Mace is only one capable to do that since he is master of Vaapad most difficult of saber styles.

Mace Windu is the greatest duelist of his ERA. Whether or not he is the best of all time is an argument for another day. However the argument is a strong one. Especially considering he invented his own saber style, and is the only Jedi to ever master it without falling to the dark side.

This is only half correct.

Windu did beat Sidious in the lightsaber duel. That is fact, Windu was just much better.

However once Sidious turned to using the power of the force over dueling, the fight was over. Mace lost his grip on his lightsaber when Sidious hit him with lightening.

Sidious, however, stopped himself from over powering Windu do to the appearance of Anakin. He then used Windu to help him turn Anakin to the dark side, by making Windu look like the bad guy attacking a helpless old man.

Yes. Mace Windo, as strong as he was, DID NOT defeat lord sidius. And btw, mace didn't die either when he was tossed out the window - just a bit of star wars lore for you

And yet, he was using Makashi to deflect sidious' lightning...

I am interested. And am skeptical whether or not this is trolling. All lore I have seen states Mace died upon the lightening attack, let alone the 100 ft fall.

I have seen nothing stating he somehow lived and even attempted looking it up after reading this. All I found where Mace Windu fanboy forums.

Mind sharing what happens to him? I actually love knowing about the SW universe and if this is real lore would love to know the answer.

Mace Windu = Most overrated Jedi ever.

Anakin said Obi-Wan was as powerful as Windu. Yoda said Palpatine was out of even Obi- wan's weight class. Anakin flat out told Windu he had zero chance of beating Sidious.

Windu, being an out of control egomaniac, decides to run off and arrest Palps on his own. As a result of his failure, Palps wipes out the last few masters on Coruscant, converts Anakin, and is able to destroy the undefended temple and wipe out an entire generation of Jedi younglings.

Windu could not even handle Dooku. When Windu threatened him, Dooku just looked bored. Windu couldn't even get to Dooku. Jango Fett and a few battle droids scared him off. In fact,
Windu's idiotic assualt against Dooku led to the deaths of dozens of Jedi! Only Yoda's intervention kept Dooku from wiping out the Jedi that day.

So, I wonder, was Windu working directly for Sidious, or did his stellar incompetence just make him the perfect patsy for the emperor to manipulate?
