Star Wars Missions 5: The Hunt for Han Solo is a Star Wars Legends roleplaying gamebook written by Dave Wolverton. It is the fifth volume of the Star Wars Missions series, and it was published by Scholastic on January 1, 1998. A sequel, The Search for Grubba the Hutt, was published the following month.
You are a bounty hunter.
Your target is Han Solo. Both Jabba the Hutt and the Empire want him – dead or alive. He is on his way to Tatooine to deliver something very important to Jabba. You must reach him first. Your mission: to hunt down Han Solo before he gets away.
While trying to spend a peaceful night at the Restful Nights Hotel on Faldos, Han Solo is ambushed by several bounty hunters. He is forced to escape, and in the process, rescues young Grubba Desilijic Aarrpo from a pair of Whiphid slavers. Safely aboard the Millennium Falcon, Solo learns that Jabba Desilijic Tiure is Grubba's Ur-Damo.
Meanwhile on Tatooine, Prefect Eugene Talmont hatches a scheme with Dengar, Udin, and Eron Stonefield to capture Solo at Jabba's Palace. They are to trek across the Dune Sea until they reach the Palace, where they will stop and capture the renegade smuggler. During their trek, they are met by Tusken Raiders, who are quickly dispatched by Stonefield.
As the hunters journey further into the desert, they are set upon by a sandstorm, and in turn, they erect a biosphere. But during the storm, they detect a ship landing near Jabba's Palace, and one of them sets out after it. The hunter encounters more Sand People, B'omarr Monks and other danger, but eventually reaches Jabba's Palace. But the hunter is too late to apprehend Solo, and instead takes his quarry—Grubba. The hunter takes Grubba back to the biosphere, and Udin elects that they take him to Kubindi, for Solo to follow.
