Even imaginary philosophies and religions have trouble avoiding all contradictions.
For another contradiction/mystery in the Star Wars universe.
Yeah, that reminds me of how many Star Trek fans were upset over the pilot episode of the series “Enterprise” because it featured humanity’s first encounter with Klingons. Apparently there is a random throw-away line in a random episode of “The Next Generation” where Captain Picard says that the first meeting with the Klingons was a bloodbath, but “Enterprise” did not depict it as such, so some fans were really upset.
That said, trying to find consistency even in the original Star Wars films is difficult, at least, “from a certain point of view”.
