He took charge and knew how to deal with people like Greedo.

The fact that it was completely changed to make Han look like he was under attack annoyed a ton of people.

The whole argument is: The Original Version vs Changed Version. People didn't like Star Wars being changed back then than fans do now.
^This, and the fact that it showed the start of his journey from selfish and ruthless mercenary toward becoming a hero by the end of RotJ.
