* The ending of ''Comicbook/StarWarsLando'': [[spoiler:Lobot allows his cybernetic implants to "optimize" his brain, saving Lando's life but turning him into the mute, emotionless automaton we know from ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. Lando promises to find a cure, which is a TriggerPhrase for a pre-recorded message from Lobot. In it, he urges Lando to give up his life of crime and find something to believe in.]]

[[AC:{{Film}}]]
* ''Film/ANewHope''. The Binary Sunset scene. You know the one. It probably has something to do with the music, or the sense of longing to do great things and being tied down by duty. ''That'', people, is why a thirty-year old movie is still making us cry.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsDE7o_o26E A deleted scene]] where Luke meets his friend Biggs before Biggs goes off to join the rebellion. According to [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_scenes_cut_from_Star_Wars_Episode_IV:_A_New_Hope Wookieepedia]], it was cut because the other friends-of-Luke scenes were cut. ''Those'' were cut for pacing and because Lucas was teased about making "AmericanGraffiti [[RecycledInSpace in space]]". It's still a good scene. (Starting with the Special Edition of 1997, the scene where Luke reunites with Biggs as a Rebel pilot was restored, but this wasn't, so the later scene kind of lacks set-up.)
** Luke returns home and sees the smoldering skeletons of his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru after they were attacked by Stormtroopers.
** Biggs's death. This guy is Luke's best friend since childhood, yet he's shot down while making sure Luke makes it to the Death Star. Seeing Luke having to swallow his grief for the sake of the Rebellion is just heart rending. (However, before the 1997 re-edit all the scenes which show they're friends were cut, so Biggs appears to be just another pilot.)
** Garven Dreis (Red Leader)'s death is also quite the TearJerker, especially seeing as how he knew he was finished and urged on all remaining pilots to let him draw Vader's attention for the sake of the Rebellion.
** Obi-Wan letting himself get cut down by Vader but not before giving a smile to Luke who was about to escape. Yeah he became one with the Force and returned later as a ghost, but audiences watching the movie for the first time in 1977 didn't know that.
* ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. Han being frozen in carbonite.
** The reveal that Darth Vader, whom Luke Skywalker thought [[YouKilledMyFather killed his father]], '''[[WhamLine is]]''' [[LukeIAmYourFather his]] [[TropeNamer father]]. It takes him a moment and a BreakingSpeech from Vader for the crushing realization to sink in.
---> '''Luke:''' "No...that's not true...that's impossible!"

* ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'': See [[TearJerker/ReturnOfTheJedi here]].

* Qui-Gon's death in ''ThePhantomMenace''.
** When Anakin had to choose between his life on Tatooine with his mother or following his life dream of becoming a Jedi Knight. Made even worse that he eventually turns Sith.
** Re-watching ''ThePhantomMenace'', it really hurts to think [[UsedToBeASweetKid how Anakin was such a cute, caring, helpful kid]] before he turned into Vader.
** Anakin asking his mother if he'll ever see her again, knowing that in the following movie they will meet again but under such painful and horrific circumstances that perhaps it would have been better if they hadn't
* ''AttackOfTheClones''. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jALL1_KdN8 Across The Stars]]." The credits version even more so, which segues into a mournful rendition of Anakin's theme from ''Phantom Menace'' before ending with the ominous bass strains of "the Imperial March."
** Shmi's death. She's been captured by Sand People, tortured to near death, and dies in the hands of her son, just managing to get out "I... love..." before dying. And people wonder why Anakin's so messed up.
*** Anakin's utterly broken plea of "Stay with me, mom." Anyone who has ever lost a parent will know his sorrow.
** When 10-year-old Boba Fett picks up his father's helmet after he was killed by Mace Windu.
*** If you read the "Young Boba Fett" books, he (Boba) mentions that he thought that Padme Amidala was exactly how he'd imagined his mother to be. The sight of him as such a young, innocent, idealistic child, and knowing what will happen to him in the future...
