This giant Rancor, clearly killed by a big game hunter makes us think of the inevitable Ernest Hemingway/Star Wars mashup. Think about it. It writes itself:
The galaxy was far way. Farther away than most people would admit and it seemed even farther if you’d had too much to drink or if you’d just been shot in the leg, which was true of me and my friend, Montoya. We were dying down there in the sandpit, being brave for no one, but being brave all the same. The monster was dead and we’d killed it, which mattered a little bit, but not enough.
