Re: Question to those most disappointed with the SW prequels

Yeah, there are inconsistencies between the twins' births and what they remembered a generation later on Endor. The real reason is that Lucas hadn't sorted out all the details yet nor decided how he'd depict Luke and Leia in any prequel films were he ever to get around to making any of them. Now you're left wondering how a newborn Leia just minutes old remembers her mother's sad expression as she died on the delivery table but Luke doesn't. Like you said, Luke had no memory of Padmé but if Leia picked up a Force image/impression of her mother in the moments after she was born then why didn't her brother? And did she at all during those brief moments?

There are moments in the Saga where I try to adopt the MST3K approach: it's just a movie, we should really just relax.
CC's retcon: Leia's memory of her mother was just a Force vision she had when she was very young, cf Yoda's, "old friends, long gone."

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.

Leia, unlike Luke, grew up around someone who had been close to Padme. Her memories of her mother, which are quite similar to what Bail would have remembered, may be the result of an unconscious application of her Force potential during that period.

Leia said all she remembers were feelings mainly, her mother was beautiful but sad.
