However, more precise numbers given by characters with a definite point to prove are less easy to ignore - why would Khan say "15 years" if he could say "16" or "18" or "20"?
15 is still rounding off. Not mathematically, but in every day speech. The Phantom Menace came out 15 years ago. It's technically only 14, but people will say 15.
