Re: Your Top 3 Action Sequences (No Lightsaber duels)
Battle of Hoth
-Just works on every level. Also allows for some unpredictability, like Dak getting killed and forcing Wedge to make the saving throw, or even Luke himself shot down and take out a walker on foot--which you wouldn't be able to get away with in the vacuum of space.
-Best action music moment in all three films as the X-wings dive in for the initial attack, and the mounting tension of being trapped from the front and back and picked off one at a time by Vader.
Falcon's turrets vs the TIE Fighters
-I don't know why this one really does it for me--it's not really elaborate or choreographed. But it's not nice quick editing and is one of the few instances where Han and Luke are fighting (more or less) side by side instead of on different fronts.
Runner up would be Luke's attack on Jabba's Sail Barge, cementing him as a fully-fledged Jedi that can pull off a (somewhat needlessly) complex attack plan.
It's funny, I always remember the scar on the other side.
