Originally Vader walked through the hallway of Cloud City and said in an irritated voice "Bring me my shuttle". This scene was short and blended in well with what was going on.
In the special edition you have this entire sequence with Vader saying in a horrible voice "alert my Star Destroyer to prepare for my arrival" followed by him boarding an Imperial Shuttle, flying to the Executor, and getting off the Imperial Shuttle with several troops lined up. The scene is way too long and distracts you from wondering whether or not Luke will be saved. The music played during these extra scenes also does not mesh.
I find this to be more irritating than the altered Emperor/Vader conversation.

I didn't mind the new Vader/Palpatine dialogue, either. Some of it is a bit stupid, and Palpatine talks way to slow compared to ROTS and ROTJ, but it makes sense when viewed after seeing ROTS. I don't think I actually minded any of the Special Edition changes for TESB, only the other two were hurt by it.

Morrison doesn't even say the lines with much emotion or feeling. Thankfully Boba didn't have that many lines so the pain isn't too bad...

The worst change, IMHO is Luke's scream.

I agree. Why repair something that isn't broken? It was perfect the way it was and now Lucas has ruined it.
I don't mind the changes made to ESB except this one.
