Re: Poor Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru... Oh Well!
One additional scene, with Luke standing over their graves, saying some appropriate words conveying sorrow and determination and the reason to go on, would have helped. But I'll bet time/money constraints were the reason we never got this scene.
Owen and Beru were not quite finished in the original trilogy: they were referenced in a taunt by Vader (as "your family"
) in several drafts of The Empire Strikes Back
's screenplay (during the lightsaber duel in the Carbon Freezing Chamber).
