    Can we include stuff from the books too? Well, Ill make a mention of that later.

    1.) EP1. Han shot first.
    2.) EP4 (remastered) On the Death Star Trench run. Wedge covers Luke, the point of view is the cockpit of a Tie Fighter and there's an X-wing charing right at 'em guns blazing. The thing explodes and Wedge does a BARROL ROLL!
    3.) EP1. Obi-Wan + Qui-Gon vs Darth Maul fight.
    4.) EP5. Han Shooting first at Vader in Cloud City (but failed).
    5.) EP2. Boba Fett unmasked! (Yes I know it's actually Jango)
    6.) EP6. That A-wing badass pilot crashing through the Super Star Destroyer
    7.) EP5. Luke taking down an AT-AT on foot.
    8.) EP5. The Battle of Hoth, plus the 1st time seeing AT-ATs, everybody was like "Oh yeah, we're fucked."
    9.) EP3. Obi-Wan with tears in his eyes yelling to Anakin that he was a brother to him.
    10.) Any Luke vs Vader saber fight.

    I can only think of 1 moment from the books for right now, but in the New Jedi Order book called Star by Star, Anakin Solo (Han's kid) assembles a squad of Jedi to do a special ops mission. Now these Jedi arnt playing dumb either and they're packing heat, they've been doing ambushes, sniping the bad guys, and overall gurellia warfare.

    1. The opening of the original. If you weren't alive and aware at the time, you can't know the impact that it had.

    2. Luke vs Vader - Empire. The cliffhanger that kept people guessing for three years.

    3. Meeting Yoda. Again, you had to be alive at the time to appreciate just how big a technical achievement Yoda was. Coupling that with an unforgettable personality instantly launched Yoda into R2/Vader/3P0 level celebrity - and is arguably the last SW character to have done so.

    4. The first Death Star battle. This was at least the third game changer that SW tossed at Hollwood, and is a perfect climax to the story. It has been outdone in the technical department, but in terms of pacing and storytelling it is tough to match.

    5. Setting suns - beautiful image, beautiful music, and said so much with no dialogue.

    6. The cantina - opened up film goers to an entire universe filled with bizaare creatures. Arguably the most imitated (and never matched) scene in the series.

    7. The Hoth battle. There is a reason it is seemingly in every SW video game.

    8. "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" - The Phantom Menace. The culmination of a lifetime of anticipation, but it was all down hill from there.

    9. Luke vs Vader vs Emporer - Return of the Jedi. Even though it has a very different tone now that the backstory has been revealed, it is arguably the best of the lightsaber battles in combining technical skill and emotionl imact.

    10. I know.

    I'm a big sucker for 'saber fights, so:

    1. Jedi- Luke vs Vader
    2. Escape from Jaba's palace
    3. Empire Vader Vs Luke/Vader reveal
    4. Final space battle in Jedi
    5. Han realizing Luke is Leia's brother (that's the most releived look I've ever seen an actor make)
    6. Luke entering Jaba's palace (just hand waving away and killing the guards- this is definitely a different Luke then before)
    7. Qui-Gon/Kenobi vs Maul
    8. Kenobi Vs Anakin (Revenge of the Sith)
    9. Hoth battle
    10. New hope Deathstar/trenches attack

    As a kid, Jedi was the first one I was old enough to see in the theatres and Luke pretty much stuck with me as a hero character my whole life since. The saber fight at the end wowed me. So despite the flak Jedi gets because it has Ewoks, I loved every second of it.
