Better Space Battle: Jedi or Sith?

I still think Jedi's ending Space Battle is The Space Battle to end all space battles. Sith's, while brimming with detail and technical flair, just didn't do it for me.

Its gotta be ROTJ. The battle was set and had a plan..audience knew what was going on. ROTS had better details sure, but we were following the ROTJ battle from a plot point.

Jedi...

The shocking "The shield is still up!/It's a trap!" Turning around into a field of Star Destroyers is just amazing.

Of course, the ANH Death Star Trench Run is probably the best space scene in history.

ROTS was very disappointing. There was very little action and it was over almost as fast as it started. Nothing can beat THE BEST SPACE BATTLE EVER!!!!

The one in Jedi has an advantage because it's longer, but man, you can't beat that "one take" that opens with the starfighters.

My only favorite part in Jedi's battle is the Kamikaze on Piett!

Babylon 5/Severed Dreams says 'Hi.'

But between Jedi and Sith, Jedi wins because you get to see the battle. In Sith it's more of a backdrop while the 2 Jedi head for the capital ship.

The last 25 minutes of Jedi rock. By far a better space battle. I am not sure which movie is better. I will need to see episode 3 a few more times.

Jedi even had the better score. The Battle of Endor has got to be one of my favorite scored space battles. I loved playing the star wars arcade trilogy game for the sole reason of getting to that level.

Jedi, much longer, much more action. ROTS we see little more than just Anakin and Obi-wan messing with the stupid vulture droids.
