    The new ending is more epic, the original is more campy. I prefer the new one actually, but to each their own.

    What's this got to do with Boba? Besides the fact that it shaped Boba's entire life and made him what he was, basically.


    ATTENTION FANBOYS, THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT DISPARAGES THE NAME OF BOBA FETT, AND STAR WARS IN GENERAL

    Boba Fett is the most overrated character in the entire episodes 4-6 trilogy. He appears on maybe two dozen frames of film, has a whopping four lines of dialogue in the entire trilogy, and he gets his ass handed to him by a blind man. The most feared bounty hunter in the entirety of the Star Wars canon gets owned by a frigging blind man. Why this character has a dearth of idiotic fanboys dedicated to worshipping him, I will never know.

    Enough on that jackass.

    Star Wars sucks. The entire legacy was sullied by George Lucas' zeal to produce the most profitable, marketable films in history. The introduction of Jar Jar as a goon, suitable for occasional comic relief and appealing to the lucrative market of toddlers and kindergarteners, pretty much assured episode 1-3's utter suckitude. Any future movie featuring this character as anything other than perhaps a lightsaber test dummy would be similarly disastrous.

  • @Smokin': Yes, Fett's overrated. That's obvious. However, you can't let George Lucas's abortions (Episodes 1-3) ruin it because he would have ruined the original trilogy had he been able to. So, you like the original trilogy because bright people interfered with it and made it great, yes? Then why are you letting Lucas ruin other Star Wars stuff like the expanded universe? Forget Lucas's garbage. Just pretend he has never been involved with it, and you'll enjoy all the other stuff a lot more...

    Unless, of course, you're the kind of guy that will send back a steak dinner because he asked for no salt on the potatoes on the side, and they came salted. Then, by all means, let one aspect ruin all for you.

  • Don't worry Smokin. I hear the big villian for Ep. 7 is going to be an Ewok Sith Lord named Darth Scruffy.

  • @smokin. You forgot that he dies by falling into a big hole with teeth. Ewoks died more honorable deaths.

    But he busts some wicked rhymes...

  • Lol, Fett's Vette; I haven't seen that in so long. The song played to a bounty hunter in Star Wars Galaxies is better, though.

    Yep, it's pretty hi-larious. It's a damn shame the Fett had to die in something resembling a Gelgameck's vagina....
