Was it ever established that it wasn't in the movie? Han is running from Jabba and the bounty hunters, as well as Darth Vader, and he's losing them at every turn, but the one he can't shake is Boba Fett. You asked what he did that was cool or bad ass?
Well he managed to catch Han Solo, was singled out by Darth Vader amongst the group of already intimidating bounty hunters, and was indirectly responsible for the entire conflict on Cloud City (including Vader vs Luke). Yes he did a lot in that movie.
