Did they really need Carbon freezing scene in ESB?

Criticism of ESB is fresh air. I occasionally visit John Byrne's forum to see people nitpick at it. And it's an excellent film, in my opinion.

 Some people also feel the inexplicable need to take potshots at a classic film just to generate some attention. I predict someone will "reevaluate" Lawrence of Arabia in the new year.

 True, true.

Not only do they not need the Carbon Freezing scene.  They didnt need to show Vader and Luke dueling.

In fact, they could have had Luke just show up with a stump where his hand used to be:  "Oh this?  Yeah, ummm, Vader cut it off, by the way, he's my dad."

 The problem with this approach is that it can be used to excuse anything.

1: "Did the podrace in TPM really need to be so drawn out?"

2: "Did they really need the asteroid chase in TESB?"

or

1: "Did Anakin and Obi-Wan need to be that close to the lava on Mustafar? It destroys believability when they don't even break a sweat."

2: "Did Star Wars really need to happen?"
