: See the Star Wars SE:
: Lucas went back and rude the whole Greedo/Han thing and made Greedo shot at Han first but he missed him! He was right across from him and still missed! God it is just SAD!

Actually I hated the Greedo shooting first not because he missd but it reduced Han.
One of the biggest subtexts to the movie is how far Han comes during the course of the films. Greedo not shooting and getting blasted in cold blood let you know what a badass Han was at the time. Now he seems less a bastard so the journey of discovery and redemption that he travels has beendiminished.
Although I'm torn as to whether that or the ewoks in general suck more ass.
