Not spoilers! Just outrageously goofy footage from the Star Wars Battlefront beta. You can put your blasters and lightsabers away.

I suppose the force was strong with young Skywalker, but he was not a Jedi yet. Ouch, that had to hurt. No legendary death. No self sacrifice. No grand redemption for popularizing his haircut. Luke Skywalker simply kicks the bucket by being kicked in the head… and then stepped on… twice.

Was this always George Lucas’ intention, and did Irving Kershner wisely decide to cut it from Empire Strikes Back? I wonder if we’ll see it in another Special Edition re-release.

The Star Wars Battlefront beta is currently underway on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Reception has been pretty positive so far, and the final game will launch on Nov. 17.
