What I'm saying is, it's not the quality of the instrument being played, it's the skill of the player. Let that sink in - Engineers may be both physically and technologically superior, but Shaw didn't live because she punched her way to victory, she lived because she was able to trick the Engineer into a position where it was absolutely fucked.
If your argument is just "Engineers have the best banana hammocks!!!" then yes, they are, in general, physically and technologically superior to humans. The same can be said for Predators toward Aliens, and yet, even without the tech, Xenomorphs can easily kill Predators and vice-versa. It's not because Predators suck, it's just because the individual Predator who happened to die sucks.
