A search of birth records would have revealed that Princess Leia was Luke's sister. Had the Empire had anything like the NSA, it would have had...

I agree with this... It's what got me through my associates degree, working my butt off in multiple jobs I could only tolerate if I could see a light at the end of the tunnel. Grueling, but, strong motivation eventually succeeds.
