10 Most Underrated Lightsaber Duels In Star Wars History

Ever since we were first introduced to the lightsaber back in 1977, audiences have been hooked on the flashy, deadly light show that is a lightsaber duel.

Over the course of the Skywalker saga, the Clone Wars animated series and Star Wars: Rebels, we've seen countless clashes of these neon-bright laser-swords, and naturally, some stand out more than others (and no, I'm not talking about that time you and your cousin choreographed an epic showdown in the street).

We've all got our favourites, and while some are universally acknowledged to be utterly brilliant, others have been harshly criticised.

Star Wars boasts a fanbase that is massive in both size and in passion, and a list of this nature is bound to upset at least a handful of them, but there are many factors that contribute to a good duel.

It could be the sheer spectacle, or perhaps the emotional weight behind the scene, but no matter the criteria, it's an undeniable fact that a handful of these graceful, deadly sequences remain overlooked - or simply dismissed out of hand.

Let's take a look at some of Star Wars' most underrated lightsaber clashes.
