Who cares?!? It totally KILLS a classic scene from a classic movie.....not to mention it ruins a scene that really introduced us to the character of Han Solo and showed us what he was all about.
I think the "Greedo shooting first" fiasco is just a great example of why Lucas needs to quit going back and tinkering with the original trilogy.
There is an old expression that goes something like, "Sometimes the artist is not the best judge of his own work
", or something along those lines.
Yes I realize "Star Wars" is Lucas' baby and he can do whatever he wants with it...but when an artist gets too obsessed with tinkering with his own work, we get stuff like Greedo shooting first.
