The Force Awakens is a terrific entry into the Star Wars saga for a number of reasons but the one that permeates it so thoroughly is its hearty investment in character.
Return of the Jedi, the final entry in the original trilogy, makes a final gasp at extending the series’ tradition of memorable creature design. We get to see old favorites and original creatures that continue to prove just how vast and diverse the Star Wars universe is.
And when it comes to memorable lightsaber duels, there is no better example than the climax of The Empire Strikes Back, the middle chapter to the original trilogy. Our hero, Luke Skywalker, goes toe-to-toe with the ominous force of villainy known as Darth Vader. The atmospheric environment within the vast, deserted halls of Cloud City highlight a meeting of the minds that has been teased but yet to be realized over the course of a film and three quarters.
