    Of course, in the film the guy pulled a gun, so a higher level of force was justified. Hmm, that would make an interesting segment, a lawyer’s take on various movie events like this.

    • Well, Tatooine isn’t the kind of place that looks like it has much law in the first place…

    • Obi-Wan couldn’t claim duress. He declared beforehand that it was a “wretched hive of scum and villainy” prior to entering Mos Eisley, so he voluntarily put himself (and Luke and the droids) in a dangerous situation. Self-defense might work though.

      Whatever law in that town was Imperial (hence the Stormtroopers doing traffic stops) and they’d unlikely be sympathetic to a Jedi…
