I’m going to play devils advocate/hopeful fan, and see if I can make up some dumb answers here.
I don’t know where this is stated, but I’d imagine it’s legends, or Disney just doesn’t care and retconned it. Not great, but happens a lot, and we can’t get too upset about it.
So far, Leia only knows Obi-wan as Ben, which could explain things. Not perfect, but a small patch to this plot hole.
Unless I’m forgetting something, they didn’t track a ship through hyperspace. If it’s referring to the cargo ship Obi-wan and Leia hid on, I’m assuming that they just knew the location because it’s a company vehicle, meaning they would know where it’s going.
We don’t really know if he’s dead yet though, probably just a feint. People have survived much worse in Star Wars.
Doesn’t like it, but still does. He shot Grievous, and considering that he has sunk since then, I absolutely believe he’d shoot Stormtroopers
@Willess12 yeah, this all checks out to me.
I don’t necessarily like any of my own ideas on this stuff, but it’s all very plausible.
