Sure. But even in the tiniest and most-crowded galaxy, traveling between two seperate star systems at sub-light speeds would still take years. Even Sol and Alpha Centauri are quite close to each other - at 4.1 light years apart.
Even going from one planet to another in the same
star system could be a long trip without hyperdrive.
I just hope no one thinks I'm "bashing" Star Wars tech over this. There's probably no "scientific" explanation or solution for this event in the story. It's a fantasy - that's the only explanation that'll matter. It's just something that "jumped out at me" in Ep. V.
