    SHOCKED this was your pick :p

    I too went with ROTJ. It was the only one that felt fully earned. And the throne room is peak Star Wars that sets the bar for what it should be.

    ROTS.

    While I enjoy all three films, ROTS is the only one that fully builds on what came before, and propels the story in a new direction.
    ROTJ, whilst a fulfilling and solid conclusion is retroactively undermined by TFA.
    TROS feels more like a sentence-long story from a novel's appendix than the conclusion of a saga. Like 'while Palpatine was defeated, he returned 30 years later... only to be defeated again'.

    This is a hard question.

    As I dislike ROTS for many reasons the final battle for me is: ROTJ x TROS.

    In general I consider TROS a better movie, but the last 20 minutes of ROTJ with luke x Vader, the space battle and Luke burning Vader's body in Endor is one of the best moments of the entite saga.

    But the question here is the best movie not the best 20 or 30 minutes, so I will go with TROS.

    This is tough....

    ROTS has the best story as you are witnessing the downfall of The Republic, The rise of the Empire/Emperor and the tragedy of Anakin/Padme.

    ROTJ has the best scenes of the Saga as The Throne Room Scenes are as good as SW gets.

    TROS has the best ending as Rey goes back to Tatooine, sees Luke/Leia ForceGhost and takes the name Skywalker.

    Still undecided......

    Easily ROTJ. IMO it's still a great ending to a great trilogy.

    Luke is finally a full Jedi, has to face his father and the emperor-

    - while his friends are on a suicide mission to stop the second DS.

    The stakes are high!

    Then the final battle happens.

    Luke vs Vader with that great soundtrack:


    That great space battle (IMO still the best in the whole saga):
    [​IMG]

    In the end the Empire is defeated and we get a happy ending (something I really miss these days, even in the current Star Wars):
    [​IMG]



    'Revenge of the Sith' might be cool too, but IMO it's way too rushed, because everyone needs to be pushed into starting position for ANH.
    'The Rise Of Skywalker' lacks in every possible way for me. It doesn't really have an epic (space) battle, Palpatine's death is rushed and Rey on Tatooine is nonsense.

    @NinjaRen What about the horses? Wasn't that epic?

    They didn't do anything cool though. In TLJ the space horses were at least part of the plot. Okay, in TROS they were used to get from A to B on the Finalizer.

    Yeah, Pryde mentioned that they can't jam the horses... what I am not okay with is that the poor horses got forced to go into battle, like the Fathiers in TLJ were exploited by the rich, the defleted stormtroopers from kef bir were not better, right?

    I think all three work very well as finales for their respective trilogy, so it's a difficult choice for me.

    However, I have to go with Return of the Jedi. The Vader vs. Luke lightsaber duel is a classic, as is the space battle. The Endor forest battle has its fun moments, too.

    ROTJ easily! ROTS second, as it has all the makings of a ancient Greek Tragedy (cathartic, bitter, yet with that subtle - or in this case blatant - aftertaste of hope). TROS isn't too bad, but it's esoteric. No one outside of Rey or Ben gets a clear ending.
