Yes, it looks like a mini-Défense

Moscow is definitely the most impressive skyline in Europe, London the most original and Paris the most well-integrated in urban fabric.

Paris well integrated? la defense is a separate part of greater Paris. I guess Frankfurts skyscrapers are the best integrated.

It is not part of the city, but of course you know that the administrative limits are not significant in this case. La Défense is not part of the tiny city of Paris (2 million inhabitants), but is definitely part of the central and densest Paris urban area (11 million inhabitants).
And what I mean by "most well-integrated in urban fabric" in the way the way the skyline emerge from the dense and continuous urban continuum without breach (no highways like in Moscow), as you can see on this photo:

to be honest, la defense should stay outside of paris as it is, i hope they don't ever merge the classical and historical beauty of paris with those IMHO ugly office buildings.

Well... If Paris were to merge with its suburbs, I can't see how it will impact the city's skyline, nor make La Defense look closer to the inner city.

And by the way Paris is far from being only "classical and historical"

I really would not bet on that. All Paris surface have an average of 7/8 stories buildings. Parks are like holes in the flat Paris skyline and the big commieblocks of central Moscow would not be so impressive in Paris. In Moscow, the holes are in the skyline so indeed La defense is not very high and massive but it is denser than any cluster in Moscow. La Defense would hide Moscow easily with only the top of the brand new buildings above.

That's why most pictures of la defense skyline are taken from Tour Montparnasse and Eiffel tower in order to make the flat skyline looks stand out.

I have been there and i know exactly how the buildings are like from close range and what the skyline looks like from the street level.

There's no skyline from the street level except from hills like Montmartre or big avenues like the champs-elysees. Or far from the city. But is is hard to see Ladefense from Paris otherwise. From the street level, you can't see very far.
