There's probably an existing thread for this but I can't find it. In ANH, the hologram of Leia refers back to the events of ROTS: "Gen. Kenobi, years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars..." I'm not one of those people who goes around looking for continuity issues or holes, but I do sometimes miss subtle things that explain these kinds of references. Was there something subtle in ROTS that explains how Kenobi served Bail Organa? I have possible explanations but I'm not totally convinced by any: 1. The Jedi were seen as serving the general interests of the Republic, specifically those in power, so it can be said that Kenobi served Bail. 2. Leia's quote can be re-cast in terms of a more generic "served along with" instead of the implication that Bail was in charge of Kenobi. 3. Kenobi served under Bail's command in some battles in the Clone Wars in some EU story. And please, can I request that we not flood this thread with "cuz Lucas didn't have that planned back then" type answers? Obviously, he didn't have all these tiny details worked out. I'm trying to figure out if there is a subtle explanation in ROTS or the prequels in general to explain it just the same. Just because he didn't have it planned doesn't preclude the possiblity that he inserted an explanation, even a subtle one that I may not be getting.
