I also find it difficult, in retrospect (and even with the original version), to see how Han was supposed to be a bit of a bad guy who gets reformed. He's the most goody-goody pirate I've ever seen.
That's because he's not a pirate, he's a smuggler. There's a big difference between A) quietly carrying illicit cargo, hoping you don't get caught and being ready to run like hell, and B) attacking other people's ships with the purpose of robbing and/or killing them.
That said, I also have to throw in my support in favor of the original versions of the Star Wars movies. When Lucas said "We now have the technology to make these as they should be", he was wrong. I suppose his idea was that the new additions should blend seamlessly with the original material. Instead, every addition stands out as if it was welded and riveted onto the original celluloid. And it looks ugly too. The CGI stormtroopers were obviously animated without the use of motion capture. And why the hell did he feel the need to make CGI stormtroopers anyway? Surely actors in armor would have been both cheaper, easier and much more realistic.
