* John Williams' music is its usual awesomeness, but two aspects of this score particularly stand out. Firstly, the Imperial March; rarely has music been quite so badass. The second is at the very end of the film: The Rebel fleet has fled the galaxy after the destruction of their main base, Luke is psychologically shaken by the confrontation with Vader and learning the man is ''his father'' (not to mention getting his hand lopped off) and Han has been frozen in a block of carbonite and taken off by a notorious bounty hunter to be sold to wicked gangster. But as Lando speeds off to rescue his friend and Luke and Leia stare out at the stars, what music is blaring behind them all? [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Han and Leia's Love Theme]].

** This was also ''Needa's'' CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Just outmanoeuvred and out-bluffed by Solo, Needa is tasked with explaining his failure to Vader, and there's no question in anyone's mind how [[YouHaveFailedMe Lord Vader deals with setbacks]]. What does he do? He flies himself to the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executor_(Star_Wars) Executor]]'' to stand before Vader, take full responsibility, and fall on his sword, sparing his ship and crew from the Sith Lord's wrath. Vader's quoted line seems to imply that even he was mildly impressed by Needa's actions. Compare Needa's execution to Ozzel's, whom Vader pointedly refused to acknowledge ''while choking him to death''.

** To truly put this into perspective, Super Star Destroyers are 12 times longer than normal Star Destroyers. The ''Executor'' is a ship over half the length of Manhattan!

** Darth Vader just force deflecting the blaster shots ''with his hand,'' no lightsaber necessary, then Force-ripping Han's blaster across the room. You think you're going to be able to just shoot Darth Vader? Please!
