      I really, REALLY hope this list isn't in order. I mean, John Williams score only the 30th best thing about The Empire Strikes Back? You think 'C-3PO's mutilation' is a better aspect of the film than The Imperial March? Nah, this list simply CAN'T be in order.

      I agree with spugesdu Although Star Wars is a great film series, the best and most memorable thing about it is the score. Any one?

      I still prefer Jedi to Empire, to be honest. Although i realise i'm in the minority.

      Good stuff, Only thing that is wrong with it is the whole Lando in Hans clothes jig.....Each Character had different attires to resemble that characters trait..... it used to be Landos ship, he was a smuggler. A Jedi wears Jedi Robes, a Rebel wears Rebel gear, Empire, Wookies, Bounty Hunters and so forth....They just wanted to capture Landos trait in the story. He left the business cape and went with the smuggler look.

      Kershner is still a God among men for this creation. "Empire" is still one of the highest public-rated films of all time, if not THE number one highest rated film. It's flawless on so many levels. If Lucas had any common sense, he would've let Kershner direct every Star Wars film after that.

      Actually Bobba Fett doesnt die in Jedi. The Sarlacc cant digest his armour so he uses a proton grenade to escape. He is picked up by Dengar and they team up to get Han who seems to be the most unliked man in the universe.

      You're missing the point. It's a tribute to Irvin Kirshner's work not John Williams, therefore not in any particular order.

      It's a list of 30 Things, not a countdown.

      I find it hard to believe that in the Star Wars universe smugglers would have an agreed uniform. It would make the actual smuggling part of their job description pretty difficult. Lando does just randomly put on Hans clothes. It might be some kind of Wookiee obedience training to stop Chewie from eating him.R.I.P. Irvin Kershner. (wearing Han Solo's clothes in heaven)

      Interesting to see a deleted scene in the trailer, where C3P0 removes the Wampa warning sticker from the door in the Hoth base.

      31. Lawrence Kasdans sparkling dialogue. Sorely missed in the latter trilogy (and Crystal Skulls). Compare his snappy back and forth between Solo and Leia on the Falcon to Anakin comparing Padme to sand in Episode 2. Nice one George! 32. The poster, the one with Luke on a Tauntan, all dark shades and romance, better than the ripped Luke (!) one from the Star Wars one.
