For me ROTJ Luke is my favorite because he finally found some level of confidence yet is still conflicted and vulnerable. Also he doesn't whine as much. :)

I like Luke from ANH where he is not yet burdened by the knowledge he is the son of a supervillain or that he kissed his sister but rather is still filled with that new hope and innocence as he embarks on his hero's journey.
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

Definitely gotta go with Greebles as I like the fully empowered Luke in ROTJ.

And we even get to see him grow a bit and at the end face his greatest fears. And in the process become the last living Force user (other than Leia?) I think.

Empire Strikes back showed us the most interesting Luke. Really love what happens in that one  :D

It's hard to say "which" Luke is the best (IMHO) since he's such a transformative character throughout the OT.  When we first meet him in ANH, he's just a whiny farmboy looking to get out of his chores and have an adventure.  But by the end of ROTJ, he's willing to give up his life for just the chance to redeem Vader (the consistent villain of the OT btw).  In my mind, that's what makes him the movie series' hero - not that he was the one who happened to blow up the Death Star, but that he matured into someone who made the conscious choice of self-sacrifice, and strode into it boldly. 

Okay so maybe my answer is lending towards "ROTJ"  :P

I guess what i'm trying to say is that I feel like the whole OT is about Luke "becoming" the hero, and it's difficult (in my opinion) to appreciate only one "stage" (or movie) without seeing it through the lens of his entire (on-screen) life.

Definitely ESB for me.  Like seeing the transformation wherein he goes from the idealistic, impetuous, and willful "padawan" if you will from ANH to the more balanced and reserved ROTJ all in one film.  The darker nature of the film makes it my favorite one from the OT, especially towards the end when he realizes that his life is radically different than he ever envisioned it would be.

Absolutely ROTJ.  Seeing him become and accept what a Jedi Knight must do to; even if that means facing enemies stronger than himself.

Oh wow this choice again? Lol This is what I went through to start this journey.
Like said above the growth of the boy to man to Jedi.

I love all 3. I think the ESB looks the best with it's upgrades. ROTJ shows his graduation from apprentice to knight .

I'll have to go with ANH. It's the one that started this ALL.
