Ill just list my favorites:

The Empire Strikes Back.

Sorry, it was and is my favorite in every category! (Action - Hoth. Emotion - Han and Leia saying goodbye, Directing and acting - Brilliant, so much more gleaned from the actors in this movie than any other SW to date, Music - superb, like all the SW movies. I really like the theme from Dagobah, however, so ESB wins again. Simply the greatest movie of all time.)

(Except for "foxiest heroine" - Nat takes that one hands down!).

Just the faves:
Emotion - TPM/AOTC/ANH/ESB/ROTJ (tie - all of them!)
The hatred from Darth Maul and Obi-Wan, the sadness of Anakin, the sadness and happiness of Luke.
Action - AOTC
Yoda. The arena. Come on.
Plot/Story - TPM/AOTC/ANH/ESB/ROTJ (tie - again all of them!)
I like them all, if not then why would I be here? :)
Music - TPM/AOTC/ANH/ESB/ROTJ (tie - surprise, surprise)
The Main Theme, Ani's Theme, Duel of the Fates, Zam the Assassin, Love Theme, Cantina Band, Imperial March, Yoda's Theme, Victory Celebration, and a whole lot more inbetween! :)
Acting - ESB
Directing - Err, don't care.
Overall - AOTC

Emotion:
The Empire Strikes Back (a very stirring movie)
Star Wars: A New Hope (can't help but feel triumphant at the end of the movie)
Attack of the Clones (a swirling of emotions in this movie)
Return of the Jedi (could have felt more exicited at the end but then I realized that there wasn't an Empire to fight anymore (not counting the EU) ) ):
The Phantom Menace (I think the Never Ending Story stirred me more)

Action:
SW:ANH
ROTJ
ESB
TPM
AOTC

Plot/Story
SW:ANH (Lucas did a wonderful job of introducing us to the SW universe by jumping to the middle of the story)
ESB
ROTJ
AOTC (could have added more elements into this story)
TPM

Music,
SW:ANH
ESB
ROTJ
TPM
AOTC

Acting:

ESB
ROTJ
TPM (I know Jake Lloyd is a kid but barf:)
SW:ANH
AOTC

Directing
ESB (Lucas maybe could have had Kershner help out on other projects?)
SW:ANH
ROTJ
AOTC
TPM

Overall
ESB (a Top 10 film all time, any genre)
SW:ANH
ROTJ
AOTC
TPM (I walked out of the theatre and said "16 years for this?" Although I have appreciated it a bit more since my first viewing--a bit).
