Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi - Who's Blocking Who?
Watch the scene where the Emperor is tring to taunt Luke into attacking him. Luke finally takes a swing at him, but Vader blocks his lightsaber. When the camera cuts to a close-up of the Emperor laughing you can see that Vader's red lightsaber is actually in front of Luke's green one. Meaning that nothing is stopping Luke from taking the Emperor's head off!
Visual Proof! See the examples below and post your pictures too.
Luke's green lightsaber is closer to the Emperor than Vader's red one.

Photo submitted. It seems that Luke was attacking Vader, not the Emperor.

I noticed this to. But Luke was supposed to fight Darth Vader and not kill Palpatine so he just wanted to get it over with.

Here's my take on it: It's the first sign of Vader's redemption. The Emperor, being the second most powerful character in the trilogy, behind Yoda, is using the force to protect himself. When Luke swings, Vader hesitates, as he is not sure whether to help his son, or his emperor. He decides the Emperor, but is too late to help him, so the Emperor has to stop the Lightsaber with the force.
