Luke and Leia Skywalker talk about their mother Padme-Star Wars- the inconsistency REALLY bothered me, but I kinda decided that it had something to do with the Force enhancing the natural bond between mother and daughter.
I have so many problems with this part of Star Wars. Princess Leia says she remembers her mother "very beautiful, kind, but sad." But Padme died giving birth to her. Maybe it's the force helping her remember?
