I'll give the reasons for liking each one, since I can't decide.

Deceived: It was just...epic. The first time I saw it, I was sure Malgus was Darth Malak returned from the dead, and when I saw the first Sith Lord (Adraas) step out of the shuttle, I got an eerie feeling he was Revan. Of course I know now I'm wrong, but that whole video gave me a KOTOR vibe, and I like KOTOR vibes. The final duel between Zallow and Malgus was too great for words. I felt an almost physical punch in the gut when the lightsaber ripped open Zallow's gut.

Hope: I've always been a Spec-Ops fan. I love G.I.Joe, I loved Karen Traviss' Republic Commando novels. As soon as I saw Jace Malcom I knew I had to have a trooper in-game. I watched in fear as he was nearly executed, and then when Satele jumped down my first thought was "She looks like Bastila!" The second was "She also looks like Serra Keto!" And then when Malgus stabbed her I was sure he'd gotten another one, only to be relieved when she caught the blade in her hand. Then the trooper comes in and blows Malgus away, apparently sacrificing himself...but to top it all off, Satele gives this bloody massive Force push and blows Malgus to smithereens! So that's why he wears the mask....

Return: As soon as I saw Satele I said "Here we go again, this is gonna be good!" Then the fighting started. The trooper and the smuggler made me made me gleefully cheer as they shot down the Imperials. Then came The Fight. All four of them clashing their lightsabers together to form a diamond...the Zabrak throwing his lightsaber to save Satele in the time it took the Sith Master to duck...and then Satele gets up. "Go, Satele. You must walk a different path." Moment I heard those words, my heart sunk. Oh, he's dead. Then Satele runs and does her awesome flip over the wreckage, and throws her lightsaber to her master who without even hesitating jumps in the air and catches it and actually wields it one-handed! Then he kills Vindican and when Malgus pulled the lightsaber to him I thought he's toast. Sure enough...there goes the Jedi. And then Malgus executes his own Master in a very Darth Bane-ish moment and I watched it again. And then I called my brother and we watched it together. And...wow.

I love them all, but Return is my true favorite. Seeing the smuggler whip out his blasters+he fricking sweet ride, I KNEW what class I was playing at launch. OF course, Deceived is awesome because it was just Malgus' voice over, and all action. Seeing Coruscant in flames and the Temple crumbling was sadding.

Have to go with Return. Nico Okarr is bada**. That scene with him walking down the hall with his coat flying behind him, double blasters blazing - a-mazing. And then the fight scene at the end, great moments all over the place in this piece.

Honestly, I have to say Return by a whisker over Deceive.

May be it's the Sith in me.

But the funny thing is, I wonder not everyone's favorite but who else used to think they were in the wrong chronological order?

At first I thought it was supposed to be Return then Deceive then Hope. Something bothered me with Malgus having the breather in what I thought was the second and not have it in the third though. Then read the journal in the CE and realized I had them in the wrong order.

Tough choice, I'll have to go with "Hope" Because I respect the troopers stubborness to surrender and that one soldier gave it his all.

That scene gives me chills to this second. I watch this trailer probably once a month still. When he is covering the soldiers' and Jedi's backs, with those awesome Smith-&-Wesson-and-BlasTech-had-a-baby blasters, it just makes me want to cheer. It is so typical of a Smuggler to be handcuffed one minute by "the authorities" and to be saving their butts a minute later because a mutual enemy shows up. It is a kind of instantaneous adoption into his crew.

Also, we cannot deny that the award for single greatest lightsaber fight has to go to one that involves someone dual-wielding a single-bladed AND double-bladed lightsaber.

I love them all really.

But if I have to choose it would be Return. That Smuggler is yummy and such a show stealer~
