Boba Fett is an antagonist in the Star Wars series, appearing in the game Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Boba Fett is one of the bounty hunters hired to track down members of the Rebel Alliance to Cloud City.
Sensing his friends to be in grave danger through the Force, Luke Skywalker flees his Jedi training to save them on Bespin. Once there, the remaining bounty hunters and Imperial allies are waiting to engage him, including Boba Fett. The formidable bounty hunter encounters Luke in a corridor in Cloud City where they battle. Boba Fett utilizes his massive arenal of weapons in battle, including his rocket pack and his blaster rifle, and dropping bombs on him from above. Luke defeats him using his blaster pistol, lightsaber, and his knowledge of the Force. After his defeat, the injured bounty hunter got away from the fight with his rocket pack.
Upon escaping, Boba Fett departs in his ship, the SLAVE I. Princess Leia informs Luke that the bounty hunter has taken Han Solo (an old adversary of his) prisoner, and intends to collect a bounty on him. Leia successully prompts Luke to rescue their friend, as he pursues the SLAVE I in his X-wing fighter. After a dogfight ensues between the two ships, Boba Fett's ship ultimately sustains massive damage and is unable to continue the fight. This allows Luke to save Han, leaving Boba Fett's fate unknown.
- Boba Fett's appearance is based on his film appearance in the film the game was based off of, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (with a few liberties taken).
- Luke's encounter with Fett is based on the characters' brief encounter in the film, which only involved Boba Fett taking aim and shooting at Luke from across a corridor, while Luke takes cover and evades it.
- In the film, Boba Fett successfully escapes with Han Solo, while Chewbacca (not Luke) attempts to fire back at Fett escaping in SLAVE I. This, however, is unsuccessful in stopping Fett.
- Boba Fett may have been slated to appear in the proposed sequel, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, as he had in the film the game would be based on.
