: These aren't major questions but there are a few things I can't figure out....
: 1. Why does Princess Leah remember her mother and Luke Skywalker doesn't?
Separated at birth Leia stays with mother (assumed til her death), and Luke goes to live with his step-uncle
: 2. Why was their no reacton from Princess Leah when Luke told her that they were twins. I mean, did the whole Lord Vader is my father thing fly over her head?
She too had the power of the force and had sensed a connection from Empire. When Luke reveals the truth, it makes instant sense.
: 3. What impression did Vader give that he still has some good in him? Is it because he didn't kill Luke?
Luke realized that Vader could have killed him in Empire, yet chose not to. As the old expression goes "Evil shows no mercy". So, Luke decides to play upon the "Luke, I am your father" angle to try and bring out his lost father into the light again.
: 4. If the force is with Princess Leah, why didn't Vader feel her presence as well?
Vader was unaware of Luke until he encountered him at the first Deathstar battle. "The force is strong in this one", was Vaders first clue. Leia was not revealed to him until Luke's thoughts expose her in Jedi.
Hope this helps
: May be basic questions, but I still cannot figure out the answers
