I agree, I mean some-things are meant not to be figured out in movies. They leave holes like this for the books so the authors can create something to entertain us and lengthen our knowledge about star wars. If everything was answered for in the movies then as soon as the saga was over then we would not have any books that happen during the movie, due to our knowledge of what happens. All we would get would be thought up ideas about the Star wars universe, which could get pretty boring because there would be nothing to connect with the movies per-say (due to there being nothing to fill).
