Star Wars Bounty Hunter 10: Greedo

Greedo is the Rodian bounty hunter who was killed by Han Solo in the cantina on Tatooine in "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" (1977). In the original cinematic release of the film, Greedo does not fire at all. Solo shoots first from under the table. In the 1997 re-release of the film, Greedo launches a poorly-aimed shot at Solo from about two feet away before Solo fires. George Lucas has said that this change is to enhance Solo's overall heroism. I say George should have left it as it is coz it's "kill or be killed".

It's a pity Greedo dies, because he is my favourite character
