Actually it was before the DVDs I think. It was when Lucas went on the whole "New Special Extended McDonalds version" of each of IV V and VI and they were re-released in the theatres. Remember those silver, gold and bronze boxed sets of VHS? Remember the "new" Jabba scene? Remember the pink ring that flew out of the Death Star's exploding ruin? I'm pretty sure that was all on VHS because they were waiting for I II and III for DVD. I could be wrong though.
Heh, woah, that sounds way too fanboi... anyway, yeah I think it was to soften the edge on one of the series' future protagonists.
