So in ROTJ there are really only 2 victims of the rancor monster ... the pig-guard and the dancing girl.
Maybe this is kind of bad, but when I watch Return of the Jedi, I actually feel a little more sympathy when the gamorrean guard gets eaten by the Rancor than I do for Jabba's slave dancer.
I'm sure Lucas didn't really intend that, but to me, I think it's awful that Jabba & his courtiers are laughing at the guard, who was really just trying to do his job, as opposed to when they all laugh at the dancing girl, because she was legitimately doing something kinda wrong (trying to escape Jabba I think). Weird thought.
