If you think Jedi are more intelligent, wise and knowledgeable than everyone else just by being Jedi, I have to wonder if you're actually familiar with Star Wars.
Seriously, have you seen some of the decisions Jedi have made? Or just listened to some of their dialogue? "I have the high ground" indeed!
Jedi are people, too. Some of them are very bright and capable. Some are...well, just dudes who happen to be more in tune with the universe (or, even less special, just dudes who happen to have more midichlorians than your average bear, but that's even less fun to consider).
You actually misinterpreted my statement on the Jedi. I implied better because they (can and often do) combine everything that any other character type can have. Intelligence, Charisma, combat training, etc, etc. Jedi can use guns too (old Order Jedi way before the Ruusan Reformation, actually used weapons other than Lightsabers. Just not very often, admittedly.). Jedi wore armor, thus actually stood a chance taking hits like a regular soldier. Jedi were Chancellors of the Republic for 1000 years+. If they sucked, they would have been ousted long before the Ruusan Reformation.
People get so caught up in the aspect of the Force that they forget Jedi are people and can be very intelligent and entirely kick ass beyond just having Force Lighting and a lightsaber. I in no way said all Jedi are superior. When someone uses a term as a blanket statement, its assumed exceptions exist. What I am doing is comparing averages, like anyone else would. In Star Wars, averages tend be higher, however. Not all Bounty Hunters are kick butt. Not all smugglers are Han. Not all Jedi are Revan. Regardless, the average Jedi is far and away superior to the average Bounty Hunter/Smuggler/Soldier. It would take an exceptional of either three to match up to an average Jedi.
Because of the very reason Jedi have brains and the ability that any soldier or bounty hunter has, means they are automatically better. Its simple logic. Force+smarts+tech=dominance.
For gods sake, a padawan (In Episode 6) killed six (or so) clone troopers before he was finally killed. They did see him coming before he managed to get within melee range, to slice them to ribbons, and he had maybe 6 (max) or so feet to dodge and weave. Give a Jedi an open field and those clone troopers would have been goners without a doubt.
Take into account the average numb skull Jedi's increase in reaction time, perception of events unfolding, ability to act, and so forth, and it doesn't take intelligence to beat even a good bounty hunter. Normal people can't react fast enough to beat a Jedi not even trying to use his abilities to the max. Imagine a Jedi who actually uses his powers. Most Jedi in the movies rarely used anything other than Force Jump. It was pitiful. Force Speed anyone? Precognition? Force Cloak? Force Flight? Force Push? Force Choke? Force Crush? Force Bubble? What about using the Force to lift up someone and just toss them like a rag doll? If Yoda could lift an X-wing then why can't the same concept be applied to a living being? Its mass. Its an object.
If a bounty hunter can use his imagination to utilize the tools at hand, why can't a Jedi do the same to utilize the Force and anything else at hand? Star Wars has stereotyped Bounty Hunters and Smugglers as the ones with brains. Soldiers are dip-wads and Jedi are just there with the Force and not much else. The whole stereotype does not do justice to the Jedi, nor anyone for that matter. Jedi are far more than they are given credit for.
