* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Emperor Palpatine was originally played by Marjorie Eaton wearing a bizarre mask, rather than the more famous Ian [=McDiarmid=] who played the Emperor in the Prequel Trilogy and Film/ReturnOfTheJedi. This results in the Emperor having a very different look, often described as having "chimpanzee eyes".

He's the one who leads the Empire to Vader the ''Falcon'' after the entire Imperial Navy fumbles, and order Imperials around.he's the first character who seems resistant to Darth Vader's ambiance of terror.



* IncestSubtext: A pair of DeletedScenes for Luke and Leia are full of this. One UST-laden scene has a near-kiss between Luke and Leia after Luke tries to confess something to her before being interrupted by C-3P0 and a second she gives him a short peck on the lips as she tends to him after he lost his hand.

** Hanís off-screen run-in with a bounty hunter convinces him to leave the rebels.

* PragmaticVillainy: Vader has one moment when he keeps Boba Fett from simply shooting Chewie when the wookie is flailing about trying to resist Han from being put into carbon freezing. Perhaps Vader simply didn't want the mess of a dead wookie to drag out of the chamber and was confident that Han could get Chewie to calm down and spare them the trouble. Or he just wanted Chewie as a prisoner.

* TheAppleFallsFar: Look closely when Luke falls out of the chute on Cloud City and clings to a weather vane; his hand can be seen falling into the atmosphere.
* ApocalypticLog: We hear what [=C3PO=] was thinking all the way up to when he was blasted. A rare example of the writer surviving.
