    I have to agree here. Vadar is one of my favorite villains of all times. Darth Maul was cool, but definitely not iconic like Vadar was.

      Vadar is obviously an iconic villain, but meh, he bores me. I'm obviously in the minority here on this.

      IMO, the best lightsaber battle in the whole series is Maul vs. Qui-Gonn and Obi-Wan. You talk about awesome entrances, I think Mauls' was better. The way he's just standing in the doorway with that hooded cloak, and then when he busts out the double light saber. That is epic ****.

        Vadar will always be the iconic character of the series but there comes a time when you have to move on from your golden goose. In the grand scheme of the entire story outside of just the movies, he's really not that huge of a character. That honor would go to Palpatine.

          Maul is an assassin/ninja and he just looks bad ***.
          Darth Maul would have been cooler had he been a character in the originals maybe. I just cant get over my own personal stigma of how much i dislike eps 1 & 2.

          I played "Star Wars: The Old republic" for about a month or 2 when that game out, and I created a Zabrak assassin just like Maul as my character. lol

            no way and I'm a Star Wars geek, but no way. LOTR the first trilogy was waaaay better than any of the SW trilogies.

            that said, Empire and Revenge of the Sith were the greatest SW flicks of all time !

              Who's the guy you automatically think of when somebody mentions Star Wars?


              Darth freakin' Vader!


              Sorry chaps, but he's the most legendary character when it comes to George Lucas's trilogy.

                I loved that battle, it was epic. I just think of Darth Vadar when thinking about Star Wars. He was always iconic, and one of the best villains. I guess he's an older villain so he isn't that recognized anymore.. but that's not necessarily fair.

                  I was really kidding. I actually think I told Rudy in a text that I thought LOTR was amazing. One of my favorite series.

                        Hell yeah... LOTR put me to sleep. The Two Towers was alright but that last one was corny imo. Overrated movies.

                          Whaaa ?

                          I agree they were a bit long but the substance of the story, the characters etc were more enjoyable for me.

                          I liked Star Wars characters too but to be honest I HATED the hell out of those stupid Ewoks...talk about corny. Oh and I hated Ep. 1 with little orphan Annie, but the pod race was cool, and of course Maul was a bad ***.

                            I'm more into the older Star Wars Episodes 3-6... the new ones was kind of lukewarm but I can still watch em over those dreadful LOTR movies. I know I might be in the minority because I have family members and friends who love those movies. Great CGI and epic moments at times but not enough for me to crown em over something I grew up on.
