Just a question: Why can't anyone just say "it's a plot hole" and move on?
Probably because we don't see enough in the movie to confirm it either way.
And because we Star Wars fans do love our retcons.
Because it isn't?
You haven't been here very long, have you?
The EU exists to fill plotholes so Star Wars fans are a bit too spoiled to just accept plot holes.
Unless I'm forgetting something in the novel, the only clone we know he spoke to directly was Cody - the rest could be looking at relays or recordings. My personal interpretation has always been that he did Cody personally because he'd had a personal hate going on for Obi for thirteen years, and wanted to savor that one - besides which, Obi stood the best chance of turning Anakin back around in he survived, so From A Certain Point Of View, his death going off smoothly was actually more important than anyone else's, even Yoda's, because Palpatine doesn't consider a handful of Jedi a threat to the two of them, as seen in Dark Lord. So he gets a confirmation from Cody, then does the rest in a big relay, that through sheer happenstance took a little too long (which could be a matter of as little as thirty seconds) to get to Gree. I can't see any other explanation for Yoda falling late enough in the game to be forewarned - Palpatine may have been more concerned about Obi, but he's not so sloppy that he's gonna give Yoda a fighting chance.
