But echoes are caused when many lives are extinguished at once. Kenobi felt it when Darth Vader destroyed Alderaan, The Jedi on Dantooine felt it when Malak destroyed Taris but how could the death of a single individual like the Exile or Kreia send an echo in the force?
The Exile is not the last of the Jedi, what about the Lost Jedi like Atton, Bao-Dur, Mical, Visas, Mira?
I feel we need to clarify. Echoes and wounds are not the same. Echoes are created by the latter but not only. It was underlined in TSL that even small things can leave the mark upon the galaxy and the death of powerful force user would qualify for that. (like Sidious's death was felt across the Galaxy by those attuned to the Force)
The Exile is the last of the Jedi from certain point of view. In other words (s)he is the last from the old Order, while his/her students will create a new Order. Or to be more specific, Exile has ties to the old order but (s)he is not rooted in it like Kreia.
