Wedge was the first one to take down an Imperial Walker on Hoth, and he helped blow up the DSII, that’s not important?
Oh yeah, he also saved Luke’s butt in the battle of Yavin. 😉
No, those aren’t important. Cut him out and the movies are almost exactly the same.
I get why SW fandom overemphasizes background characters and bit players - these are movies we’ve seen hundreds of times so we know who says every line, plus EU/action figure/imagination potential - but when it gets down to the actual content I think fans need to remember to put things in perspective.
Blame Kenner. 😛
