* Echo Base is falling, the Imperials are advancing almost unopposed, and the command center has been hit, but Leia is ''still'' there, calmly directing the defense to buy time for the evacuation. Han practically has to drag her out of there, and she still sticks around long enough to tell the crew there to send the final evacuation signal and to get to their transports.

Added DiffLines:

* With a bit of discrete signalling on his wrist communicator, Lando is able to arrange for his security forces to ambush the Imperial personnel escorting him and Princess Leia, allowing for the heroes to escape Cloud City (except for Han, who is taken away moments before they can rescue him). While he wouldn't fully redeem himself until the start of ''Return of the Jedi'', Lando's cleverness prevents the whole batch of heroes from being captured or killed by Vader and Boba Fett.

* Han Solo after being tortured. When he finds out that this was all to lure Luke into a trap, he uses a bit of strength he has left to punch Lando before being restrained. Lando was in the middle of a HeelFaceTurn at the time, but the fact that Han's best friend putting his other best friend in danger being the last straw for him was pretty awesome.

Lando was in the middle of trying to find a HeelFaceTurn way out at the time, but the fact that Han's best friend putting his other best friend in danger being the last straw for him was pretty awesome.

* John Williams' music is its usual awesomeness, but two aspects of this score particularly stand out. Firstly, the Imperial March, which makes its debut in this film; 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]].

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLUTOGpJ2es first appearance]] of the ''Executor''. We see it eclipsing the light on multiple ''Star Destroyers! LIKE THAT BEHEMOTH FROM THE INTRO OF THE PREVIOUS FILM!'' Even its engine exhausts dwarf the escorting Destroyers. The same sequence debuts a new piece of music for ''Empire,'' [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome the Imperial March.]] To truly put this into perspective, normal Star Destroyers are approximately 1,600 meters long, or about 1 mile. Super Star Destroyers are 12 times longer than normal Star Destroyers. The ''Executor'' is a ship over half the length of Manhattan!

* Luke informs Yoda that he's just not strong enough in the Force to raise his starfighter from the swamp. Yoda then raises the X-wing out of the swamp, accompanied by triumphant music and spirited beeping from R2-D2.
