The Force was with Obi-Wan Kenobi through every round of the Star Wars Showdown, and RT users ultimately championed the Light Side in the final battle between the Jedi master and the preeminent villain of the franchise, Darth Vader. It was a surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one, as Obi-Wan defeated his final three opponents all by the same margin: 53% to 47%. Conversely, Darth Vader had a much easier route to the final, trouncing every one of his opponents — even Emperor Palpatine himself — before he met his match in Old Ben Kenobi, whose victory is something of an upset here.

As always, thanks to everyone who voted in every round — over 500,000 votes were cast across all of the match-ups, proving just how passionately Star Wars fans feel about their beloved characters. Click below to see all the results from the previous rounds, and keep your eyes open for the next RT Showdown.
