Han Shot First -- so?|
The Jabba scene in ANH was one of the best additions from the special edition I thought. Not only did it give Han more backstory and explain his motives more, but it also introduced us to Boba Fett early on, albeit briefly. The scene was in the novelization after all.
I thought it was OK without it; ANH as a standalone film was very British, and that missing bit of backstory just sort of added to the feel of things, gave the first half an almost Film Noir kind of thing... if you're into that sort of thing.
