Another Star Wars Observation

While watching Star Wars (A New Hope) the other day, I realised something that resolves one of the more trivial problems in the Episode III - Episode IV transition. Reading a comment on the Coyote's Star Wars review by Alina Adams, I realised someone had beaten me to this observation, but what the heck, I'll post it anyway.

In the movie, it is mentioned that Luke Skywalker applied to the (presumably Imperial) Academy.

Now imagine you are Darth Vader. You are sitting in your office on Corcusant, when a minor flunkey brings you a file "you might find interesting".

Application to Imperial Academy
Name: Luke Skywalker.
Planet of origin: Tatooine.
Parents/guardians: Owen and Beru Lars.
