Re: Question to those most disappointed with the SW prequels
Creative. That, or maybe Leia was just remembering images that Bail Organa had implanted in her mind as she grew up, unwittingly leading his adoptive daughter to believe she had actually seen her real mother when she never had. Bail and his wife could have spun some stories about Padmé when Leia was a little girl and over the course of time she just assumed the images in her head were firsthand visual experiences recorded in the actual presence of her birth mother when she was very, very young.
Remember what cooleddie74 says, kids:
