Corrected entry: The idea that Han, Luke and the gang would jeopardize the mission by wasting time looking for Leia in the forest and hanging out with the Ewoks as long as they do is insane. They have a thousand ships on route to destroy the Death Star and they decide to go after one missing soldier?

Correction: As stated in the briefing room scene, Luke, Leia and Chewie were the command crew for the shuttle; Han has already chosen the soldiers to carry out the mission, and as such, they know the drill and can carry it out without him (after all, what if he died in battle?). Leia, whilst technically expendible as a team member, is an important leader in the Rebellion, and to lose her like that would be a terrible blow to the Alliance.
