Personally I like it because Han grows over the course of the films. At the end of Jedi, Han is no longer a man who would kill someone in cold blood.
And actually the script dated January 15, 1976 says:
GREEDO: That's the idea. I've been looking forward to killing you for
a long time.
HAN: Yes, I'll bet you have.
Suddenly the slimy alien disappears in a blinding flash of
light. Han pulls his smoking gun from beneath the table as the
other patron look on in bemused amazement. Han gets up and
starts out of the cantina, flipping the bartender some coins
as he leaves.

Just as the way the original film was shot and edited, you never actually see Han shoot, its implied.

Like someone else said, Han doesn't have a cause, he's all for himself, very selfish and ruthless when it comes to saving his own skin and for money, he grows in the film and finds a cause, to alter this scene really alters the character a bit too much and makes the growing part seem less than it could be, it's a bad move and its the one thing i really dislike, i can take the CGI changes but i wish they would have left this scene well alone.

Luke and Lando murdered all those unfortunate contractors on the two Death Stars. They should fix that with CG.

I always liked Lucas' response to the contractors argument.  In the commentary for Episode II, at the arena battle, he notes that Kevin Smith's argument about this forgets that what's really in the Death Star is "a bunch of termites".

[DORK]I would think that since the Empire knew that the Rebel fleet was coming to attack the second Death Star, they would have moved all non-essential personnel (construction workers, secretaries, janitors, etc.) to Endor so they wouldn't be in the way of the military guys during the battle.[/DORK]

The Emperor wouldn't hire contractors. He'd use slaves. You guys need to think like a Sith! :D

Didn't Kevin Smith make that argument long before the prequels existed though? If I see a bunch of those bugs added to the Death Star scenes in 2017, I will scream. :D
