Harmy’s despecialized versions are my favorite right now. I cannot tolerate the stuff Lucas did to the originals with his so-called “specialized” versions, especially Greedo shooting first. While the stupid CGI effects he added were annoying (especially the dinosaur walking in front of Ben and Luke’s speeder), changing the scene to Greedo shooting first ruins Han’s character, especially at that point in the film. The whole scene sets up Han as a scoundrel ,and possibly one that Ben and Luke can’t trust. It sets him up for his character arc, not to mention makes him that much more of a bad ass.

I also have just created a personal edit of Harmy’s ROTJ to eliminate all the Ewoks. I hated them then and hate them now. I don’t think I’ll ever watch the actual version with Ewoks again.
