Fans who reacted to the story seemed overwhelmingly thrilled it was deleted from the movie.
"Wow, that was horrible dialogue," one wrote.

Still another wrote "This scene would have ruined Han/Leia for me. I don't like him calling her cold or resenting how much of her time is taken up by leading a rebellion against an evil galactic empire (the thing that made her awesome)."
