When I was a kid I thought that Boba Fett was the leader of the Stormtroopers, and he was only with Jabba in ROTJ to make sure the Rebels didn’t steal Han back. I always pictured him kneeling before Palpatine right next to Moff Jerjerrod if he hadn’t died.
Not sure where it originated from, but back in the day, Fett’s armor was said to be that of a shocktrooper, predecessor of Stormtroopers and Fett was possibly a veteran of the Clone Wars.
Kind of more interesting than the backstory we got. 😉
