    Jabba and gang were concerned with Solo and had no knowledge of Luke and his family.

    If they were disintegrated there'd be no smoking remains. Owen and Beru burned to death. Probably from a fire started by Stormtroopers' blaster fire. Besides, I doubt even Vader would trust Boba Fett with the Death Star plans.

    Nah, was storm troopers

    Even if it wasn't storm troopers (which it was) why would we think its Fett? Could have been any number of bounty hunters

    It was Stormtroopers.

    EU source, so take it with a grain of salt if you'd like, but, according to Wookiepedia, and a similar old article (I believe in SWInsider, a long while back)
    "According to the recollection of stormtrooper Davin Felth, the farmers were killed after Owen spat in the face of the squad's commanding officer, Mod Terrik, they were then each shot with a blaster before their bodies were semi-cremated with a flamethrower."

    I think the movie makes it pretty clear that it was stormtroopers that killed Owen and Beru: first there is the “look sir, droids”-scene which establishes that there are stormtroopers following R2 and 3PO’s trail. Secondly, when Obi-Wan and Luke come upon the slaughtered Jawas, Obi-Wan identify the attackers as Imperial stormtroopers and Luke then concludes that if they had tracked the Jawas there they must also have tracked them to his home.

    I always understood Vader’s comment to Fett to mean that Fett was the type of bounty hunter who prefers to kill their bounties rather than capture them, so Vader was making it clear that Fett was not to get carried away.

    Stormtroopers killed Owen and Beru. I doubt Vader at that point gave a **** what happened to them anyway.

    "No disintegrations" just means he wants the prisoners alive.

    no disintegrations was referring to many instances were Boba was ruthless as a bounty hunter.Vader used him before, I recall Boba even being called Vader's right hand man, and knew this.

    Interesting theory but Fett didn't care for Luke.

    Here's what to think:

    • "Disintegration" means being reduced to particles. Owen and Beru's skeletons were visibly intact. Hence, they were not disintegrated.
    • The abbreviation of The Empire Strikes Back is ESB or TESB, not "EPSB".

    I certainly know the definition of the word disintegrate, which is central to your opening post:

    no disintegration and thats clearly what happened to uncle owen and ant beru

    Disintegration, transitive verb 1: to break or decompose into constituent elements, parts, or small particles . 2: to destroy the unity or integrity of. intransitive verb 1: to break or separate into constituent elements or parts. 2: to lose unity or integrity by or as if by breaking into parts 3: to undergo a change in composition <an atomic nucleus that disintegrates because of radioactivity>.

    Noe that the several denotations do not include targets being burned but left structurally intact. What we see of Owen and Aunt Beru's smoking corpses does not fit the definition of the word "disintegrate".

    Also, the names are spelled Boba Fett and Tatooine. You're welcome! :D

    Also, who says there's a bounty on the droids? Most likely there isn't. Vader doesn't want everyone and their brother searching for the droid that contains the super secret Death Star plans that can demonstrate a weakness that can be exploited for it's destruction. The only ones looking for the droids are Stormtroopers. Vader doesn't anyone else anywhere near R2.

    But why would he even risk it, when he could just send Stormtroopers?

    Never mind what I say; acknowledge the millions of English language dictionaries currently in print which offer a definition of disintegration that contradicts the idea that Owen and Beru were "disintegrated". In your OP you claimed "I don't know what to think", but clearly you've already made up your mind, despite evidence to the contrary.

    The post I contributed before explains that.
    It's an Expanded Universe novel. ;)

    Also, in the case of a military base/superweapon being compromised, you would attempt to use the most discrete and confidential method of finding them.
    Bounty hunters are not to be trusted, they work for the best offer, and are very secretive and work with "smoke and mirrors", they are almost always dishonest, merely to get what they want to make their way in the galaxy. As I said, Empire or no, highest price wins with them.

    Stormtroopers are almost guaranteed to work as they are told, and will be near completely confidential. They are trained to be so.

    Therefore it makes more sense that Vader/Palpatine would use their own men, versus bounty hunters.


    Also, Vader means to imply Boba simply has a tendency to kill for a bounty, and disintegration is part of that, versus bringing them alive.
    When Vader states "I want them alive - no disintegrations", he just wants them alive, and doesn't want Boba to use his normal techniques.
