More to the point, though, the idea that Boba Fett is a 'legitimate nemesis for Han' - and the entire Boba Fett mystique - has very little to do with the original trilogy. In Empire Strikes Back he's just some unnamed faceless guy with five lines, who serves to remind us of the still-unseen 'Jabba the Hutt' menace that film and the previous film have been talking about. Beyond him being yet another one of the bounty hunters who wants to collect on that particular bit of cash, there's absolutely no sense he's a bigger problem than Greedo, a character who had more dialogue, clearer motivation, and an actual name.
I think their motivations were the same: greed.

Greedo seemed like a local small punk over-reaching himself to gain more cred in Jabba's organization.

Which reminds me of a way they hurt Boba Fett with fan service. The wink-wink of Fett in the Star Wars special edition just makes it seem like Fett hangs out with Hutt all the time waiting to chase down dead beats. Hardly seems like something the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy would do, more like a mob goon, more like Greedo.

...okay, yes, also as a kid I preferred Bossk because he's a giant lizard who's not afraid to not wear any shoes.
And he growls at Imperial officers. Too bad he also dies on the exploding sail barge. I think Dengar does, too. Most people don't realize they were there; I didn't until like the late 1990's.

This is true, but my point was that Greedo's role as Jabba's money-wanting hitman is a little more developed than Boba Fett's terse I WANT MY PAYMENT stuff in Empire.

Narratively speaking, Boba Fett is not more important than Greedo in the original trilogy... he just lives longer.

As far as I know, neither one are in Return of the Jedi.

Apparently, they are, albeit very briefly. (Like IG-88 on Cloud City, the probably made for easy background aliens).

Dengar in ROTJ:

Bossk in ROTJ (at least, a production still):

Another smegging game? I would really love to see Lucas loosen the reins and allow other filmmakers to make one-off "side stories" in the SW universe.

Or it could be a new character, with Fett appearing as an NPC. Judging by the key art, Coruscant is under Imperial control. This is me speculating, but it could be this is set between the trilogies and will eventually tie into the live action show.
I was going to say "or Jango" (who already had the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter game), but if it's Imperial Coruscant I'd have to assume that either the player or a lead NPC will be teen/20ish Boba learning his dad's trade.
Given the website shows TIE fighters over Coruscant it has to be Imperial Coruscant.

It has a shadowed, mostly from the back shot of who I'm guessing is the Bounty Hunter who could pass for a young Boba Fett, but just as easily be someone else. I'm hoping for a new character so that the writers for the game will have more freedom with what they can do with him.

Lucas has officially started his transition into retirement, so in a few years Lucasfilm might do something like that.

Or AOTC-era Coruscant.

He should just let the fans do it.

They have such great ideas.

Boba would need to have shot first.

Save us a lot of trouble later.
