Dooku didn't have an unfinished form. He used Makashi the whole time.
No! I'm Spamacus!

Me myself, I like Shien more than Djem So. If perfected enough, I can have a well fortified defense as well as some offensive and counter-offensive manuevers. That's why I like Shien more, there's more room to improve.
The same for me. I value diplomacy much more than combat, so a combination of Form III and V would be most useful.
What I would prefer is for myself is a Soresu-based form with elements of Shii-cho, Djems So, Shein (not Form V but the form using reverse-grip, the one Darth Vader's apprentice use) and Joyu/Vaapad. Mastering all the Forms is a great idea. I like the classic forms of the Old Jedi Order better, it may seems a little impractical but that's just me. I also really like the non-aggressive philosophy of Form III. I must admit I really like the NJO's Strong Style stance, though, it looks so cool.
I liked the forms of the Old Jedi Order better as well. I don't really like the New Jedi Order forms much, they're less original. The three forms of NJO are just a mix of the seven forms of the OJO. And plus, Fast, Medium and Strong are lame names for the forms, wouldn't you say. At least the seven old forms sounded cool.:cool:

At least they're an appropriate mix of the associated styles under a smaller and easier learned system.
The names of the three styles you listed, are only from the games Jedi KnightII: Jedi Outcast, and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. The Three Rings of Defense are; -Outer Ring -Middle Ring -Inner Ring.
The names for the older seven forms may indeed "sound cool", but like that one section of Obi-Wan Vs Anakin where they decide to twirl their Lightsabers around pointlessly for thirty seconds, what looks/sounds cool isn't always practical or needed.
~JediMaster500, Vapaad isn't an improvement to Juyo, it's completely different. By the time Mace Windu created Vapaad, Juyo had become an incomplete style of combat (to the Jedi at least, since Maul was taught it by Sidious), because the knowledge and mastery of it necessary to teach it was lost.
I prefer Juyo, though most of the time i don't get it outright in any of my games. So i either have to go without it, or add it with KSE. I would say Jar'Kai too, only that really isn't a form, thats just part of the game.
