(sorry if this isn't the right place to post this, feel free to move it to another forum if necessary) So in RotS we see Padme giving birth to the twins, but she spends more time on Luke, touching/holding him, and basically only bothers to give Leia a name and that's it. How can we reconcile that with RotJ, in which Luke says "I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her" when Leia says "Just images, really. Thoughts. Feelings. She was very beautiful. Kind, but... Sad." Surely if anything, Luke should have a better memory of their mother - and there is no real reason why Leia should know things like that about her mother. Any ideas? Here's one of mine: Padme, as a friend of Bail's, had more of an emotional 'presence' in the Organa household - it makes sense that Bail adopted Leia partially out of affection for his friend. This, combined with Leia's Force-sensitivity, and tendency of little girls to look up to their mothers, might explain why Leia seems to know a little more about her mother than would otherwise makes sense. The reverse is true of Luke - he grew up with his paternal uncles and was probably a bit less interested in his mother's identity/history than he was his father's.
