I don't know which one is "more important" per se, but Dr. Lavelle pointed out that while shape impacts the difference in boiling/melting points, the number of electrons impacts it more drastically.
Number of electrons and shape of the molecule are often interrelated, as a molecule with more electrons will be larger. When comparing electrons with similar numbers of electrons, then shape will likely be a determining factor.
