Obi-Wan almost certainly knows he is doomed when he infiltrates the death star to allow his companions to escape. It is with a sense of world-weariness then, that he is confronted by his old Jedi student, now a Sith Lord and at the height of his powers. Lowly stormtroopers look on in awe as the two masters of the Force draw light sabers. Vader, ever a traditionalist, concedes the gravitas of the encounter and doesn't rush the moment, allowing some choice dialogue to be exchanged. In a satisfying conclusion, both parties are at once strengthened and weakened by the outcome.
"The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner. Now, *I* am the Master."
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."
