Lol - yes, the trash compactor monster was a complete innocent not to mention the droids - does nobody think of the droids?
And Leia would have been destroyed along with them if C3PO hadn't checked the data banks.
The difference with SW is that the Death Star was still a long term threat and there were limited options available. Still, Han shooting first is the least of that franchisee's ethical concerns. They should start with the sexist employment practices!
