You gotta think about it like this:
ROYAL HOUSE OF ALDERAAN - INT - THRONE ROOM
[Young Princess Leia Organa sits beside an aging Bail Organa]
LEIA: Tell me about the clone wars father
BAIL ORGANA: The Clone Wars was a terrible time in the history of the republic, young Leia. From right under our noses, the Emperor manipulated the senate to create an army to serve his own needs.
LEIA: Were there many battles ?
BAIL ORGANA : Yes, too many than I care to remember.....
LEIA: And the jedi ?
BAIL ORGANA: Yes, the jedi were valiant warriors, who in the end were betrayed by Palpatine, and by one of their own kind.
LEIA: Did you know many jedi ?
BAIL ORGANA: Yes. But after the great purge, there remained but two jedi. Only I know their location, and indeed they would come out of exile to help me if I called upon them.....remember this Leia, for one day you may need to call upon them to aid us in our struggle...
LEIA: Yes, father
Thats not too much of a stretch is it ??
