There seems to be so much focus on Kit Fisto and company's uninspired

It really depends what you mean by "dramatic".
Yoda and Obi-Wan's deaths were the most drama-ridden, Qui-Gon's death
was probably the most energetic while the cut-scene of Shaak Ti's death
might have been the most emotional.
There's nothing "drama ridden" about death from old age.
Drama: situation that is highly emotional, turbulent,
Dramatic: striking or effective
How / why Yoda died is irrelevant. Yoda's death WAS highly emotional,
therefore it WAS dramatic and "drama-ridden".
As for Shaak Ti, her death is only emotional if you're emotionally
invested in the character. Since we saw almost nothing of her in the
prequels, it's hard to consider her more than an extra. In the novel,
however, it's a different story. She has a much more prominent role
leading up to the events of RotS.
In the RotS movie she was also going to be killed in a more dramatic
scene, but as I said (twice) the scene was cut otherwise it MIGHT have
been the most emotional / dramatic of all.
