I've come to the conclusion most of the jedi are terrible at light saber battles
obi-wan is by my count 2-2 beating Darth Maul and Vader and losing to Darth Sidious and later Vader again
Yoda is 0-0-2 - I count his fights against Dooku and Palpatine as draws
Anakin-Vader went 3-3 - he lost to Dooku, beat Dooku, lost to Obi-Wan, beat Obi-Wan, beat Luke, lost to Luke
Palpatine I guess beat four Jedi before tying Yoda, but I think Mace had him if Anakin hadn't rolled in on the scene
Maui lost his only fight really, even though he killed Qui-Jon
Luke is a straight 1-1, losing to dad before bouncing back
Palpatine has the best winning percentage I guess? though he ended up looking like a prune for his efforts.
Any thoughts about the abilities of these jedi?
Sith play "dirty".
You know, Force Lightning, throwing shit, using 2 lightsabers, etc.
