And "courage is just doing something even though there are big risks and danger regardless of the motivating factor" isn't right. Gambleing involves big risks somtimes, but isn't a sign of courage. The phrase "fools rush in where angels fear to tread" comes from the fact that there is courage, and then there's foolhardy. And any animal will fight when cornered, but this is self-presivation, not courage. Boba has courage, just not of the same calibar as Chief or Freeman.
But Boba chooses to go into the situation. I also think that you do have to have courage to take risks when gambling, especially when it is your life that you are gambling.
Also if it was just self-presevation he would not have accepted the jobs that would put him at great risk he would have just gone for nice easy low paid jobs.
I think he has just as much courage as the other two seem to have his is just a different type of courage.
I decided to have a look on dictionary.com and see how it describes courage. This is what it says.
courÃ‚Â·age - Show Spelled Pronunciation[kur-ij, kuhr-] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
1. the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery
2. Obsolete. the heart as the source of emotion.
3. have the courage of one's convictions, to act in accordance with one's beliefs, esp. in spite of criticism.
It does not say that you have to be selfless to have courage.
Thesasaraus.com also say this which I think backs up what I have said.

Maybe two section so that Boba can get the credit that he deserves for having courage and another so that the others can get the credit for their heroism.
Jedi photographer - May the focus be with me.
