First of all, we had no idea the All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) had a Powerstroke diesel. That's pretty impressive. Nonetheless, trying to maneuver an Imperial walker out of a mall parking lot takes the kind of finesse even the Empire's elite armor assault crews aren't trained for. Then again, this guy shouldn't be trying to go it alone — that's what a crew is for. But, as written in the StarWars.com databank, "AT-AT pilot training stresses their importance, and successful soldiers are often convinced of their invincibility, making them insufferably arrogant to the frontline grunts." Yeah, that's probably it. [Thanks to Mike for the tip.]
