IMO nothing will ever beat the darkened silhouette lightsaber duel in the carbon freeze chamber in Empire'; Irvin Kershner is a genius.

For impressive fight choreography, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan versus Darth Maul wins.
For most dramatic, Luke versus Vader on Bespin wins.
For best music, Luke versus Vader on the Death Star wins...the theme after Vader threatens to turn Leia never fails to give me goosebumps.
For unintentionally hilarious, Yoda versus Dooku on Geonosis wins.

Though I love ESB and ROTJ I think their lightsabre duels were a little lacking.I have to give the lightsabre duels to Kenobi/Skywalker in RotS,and Qui Gon,Kenobi/Darth Maul in Phantom Menace.ESB and RotJ are much better movies though.

The recent 70 minute review sums it up well by pointing out that the prequel fights lack the context of the originals.
Maul fight was intense though.
It is a shame the the obi/anakin fight was kind of boring, despite the work that went into it.

heres how I rank my faves(love them all though)
Maul vs Kenobi/Jinn.when Maul takes his hood down and Jinn says"we will handle this"the hairs always stand on the back of my neck.
Yoda vs Palpatine-we were all bustin to see this and it didnt dissapoint.chokes me that Yoda had him beaten too until he dropped his Saber.
Luke vs Vader-ROTJ-with the Emperor doing his running commentary-cool.
Vader vs Luke-ESB
Kenobi vs Vader-ROTS
Vader vs Kenobi-ANH.LOVE the way Kenobi smirks at Vader just after he looks at Luke and before Vader strikes him down

Luke Vs Vader II (Jedi). The ones in the newer movies were flashier, but this one is way more intense and was just plain perfect without benig over the top.

RotJ has a different kind of emotional punch. For most of the battle it's a testament to how far Luke Skywalker has come, as he controls his emotions and genuinely spars with Vader as an equal. Certainly he's on the "retreat" for most of the battle, but in this case it's a controlled retreat, not because his skill and power are inferior, but because he's trying to avoid direct conflict by his own choice and win the metaphysical/philosophical battle for Anakin Skywalker's soul rather than the physical battle against Darth Vader. Certainly we get a spectacular moment at the end when Luke unleashes his rage and fear and goes "berserker" on Darth Vader (along with Williams' amazing scoring for that sequence), but one short sequence doesn't match the entirety of the ESB duel.
Jinn/Kenobi/Maul looks spectacular, but until that final "Obi-Wan Rush" there's no emotion to it. Maul isn't developed enough as a threat or a character to make anyone really care about him beyond "Hey, he's badass/cool" and we as viewers already know that Kenobi is destined to survive the battle and that nobody mentions anyone named Qui-Gon Jinn in episodes IV-VI. The suspense is pretty much gone.
Anakin/Obi-Wan is again hampered by the camerawork and a certain lack of emotional impact. Perhaps partially because we already know what's coming, but what bits of the fight that we do see up close seem overly choreographed, and I think a little of ESB's "desperation" could have gone a long way towards making the fight more enjoyable. Throw a few more elbows, fists, and feet. Have Anakin try to employ a few more dirty tricks, and really show him growing more and more angry and frustrated as Obi-Wan continues to calmly keep his defenses up. But alas, it was not to be.
