Jabba the Hutt is by far the most notorious gangster in the Star Wars Universe! Having established a vast criminal network throughout the outer rim, Jabba rules his minions with an iron fist from his headquarters, an old B'omarr monestary tucked away in the wastelands of Tatooine.
When we first get too see Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi, we witness the filth and villainy of his syndicate through the eyes of C3PO and R2-D2. We find Jabba to be a sluglike behemoth, essentially immobile, and his palace is filled with less than reputable associates in his employ or seeking to gain his favor. As Luke Skywalker and his friends enact their plan to save Han Solo, their “capture” leads to a death sentence in the Sarlaac pit. Little does Jabba know that his unrelenting desire to exact pain on his enemies will be his final undoing.
