There is another

Ok, something has been bothering me a lot lately.  When Luke Skywalker leaves Degobah in The Empire Strikes Back, why does Obi-wan say to Yoda, “he was our last hope,” to which Yoda responds, “No.  There is another”?  In Revenge of the Sith Obi-wan is there when Padame gives birth to Luke and Leia, so clearly he knows that “there is another.”  Why would he ask that question?  Don’t tell me he just forgot that Darth Vader had twins.  Is he senile?  Yoda is 900 years old and he managed to remember.   The thing is, that was great foreshadowing when it was just the original trilogy, but now that the prequels are out all it has done is created a huge plot inconsistency.  If George Lucas had thought about this at all, he could have had Obi-wan go to the bathroom or something right when she is giving birth, so he would at least have a legitimate excuse for not knowing.   Then I wouldn’t be losing sleep at night.

    I have the same problem with how no one seems to remember R2-D2 or C-3PO in the original trilogy. The droids can have their memories wiped, so I can buy that they don’t remember the humans, but not the other way around. Obi-Wan doesn’t remember owning a droid when R2 finds him in A New Hope. Oh really? You don’t remember the robot you ran around with throughout the demise of the Old Republic? The one that saved your skin over and over? And that Darth Vader built 3PO?

    R2 having little rockets so he can fly is in another category all together.

    I had the same thought when I was watching Empire the other day. There are several inconsistencies.
