YMMV / Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina

  • Awesome Music: "Mad About Me," the tune playing when Obi-Wan and Luke enter the cantina.
  • Characterization Marches On/Fridge Logic: Captain Terrik's successor may be in trouble if Vader were to learn just who the slain moisture farmers were.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • The slaughter of the Jawas and of Owen and Beru.
    • Navik the Red condemning an entire clan to extermination.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: In "The Moisture Farmer's Tale" the hero is determined to make peace with the Sand People after they storm a wedding of a friend of his, killing the friend and kidnapping the bride. He successfully negotiates her release but is then horrified that stormtroopers attack the Sand People, condemning the Empire as the real enemy. The problem is the Sand People really did raid the wedding and kill people, and only release their kidnap victim after being bribed, meaning the Empire was doing its job of protecting the settlers—heavy-handed, ruthless and counterproductive perhaps, but not simply shooting the Sand People for fun or to stir up trouble. Just because the Empire is bad the Sand People don't cease to be extremely dangerous and unreliable neighbors.
