I remember a post somewhere that pointed out a lot of the guys who want their gf/so to dress up as Slave Leia consider themselves Han Solo in the scenario when Han never technically saw her in the outfit (still fairly blind from the carbonite and all that). Hell, even in-universe Han's more impressed/turned on by Leia being kickass than at her being sexy. The first time he tells her he loves her is in RotJ when she reveals she's still got a pistol when they're surrounded by stormtroopers on Endor!
This is why I champion the fact that "Slave Leia" should be renamed "Hutt Slayer". No other person in the SW Universe has killed a Hutt.
And let us not forget it was pure, unaided strength. Them's some strong arms! Probably coulda made a fortune hustling at arm-wresting.
Champion Arm Wrestler Leia Organa does have a good ring to it. Plus it's hilarious imagining everyone addressing her as "Champ" instead of "Princess" or "Your Highness.""Don't act so surprised, Champ. You weren't on any arm-wrestling tour this time."
Actually, given how she was bracing herself against him, I think it's more that she has strong legs. (Still, either way, it's an impressive feat. Hutts have a lot of neck to constrict.)
Imagine Star wars with Lucy Skywalker, prince Leios and Hun Solo.
I wonder if she could rip the arms off a Wookiee after losing at chess.
