A New Hope.
it's not my favorite movie but it is a classic, it's a seminal film which was groundbreaking at the time, I don't think you can say the same about ROTS. ANH also introduced all of the most famous Star Wars characters other than Yoda and Palpatine. there are also famous lines in A New Hope that just about everybody is able to quote.
Hard to say. I feel like I enjoy RotS more when I bust it out once every few years. The action is all around so good and it has a weight of epicness about it due to being the culmination of events before it. But a lot of that weight comes from being the capstone of a story. The climactic ending. A story that was also deeply fleshed out by the Clone Wars series which gave it more depth and intrigue than the movies themselves could have.
That said if I were to watch one of these a couple times in a row I'd much rather do A New Hope because it is just a much better put together movie with no awkward bits that bring it down.
I guess it is hard for me to really compare the climactic end of a story to the softer beginning of another. I like them for very different reasons.
