Memory wipe

Why: Another one of the lousy saga tie-ins is the way C3-PO’s memory gets wiped. Again, Bail Organa says it totally out of the blue and for unclear reasons. The only one that I can think of is that is somehow one day the droids fell into the hands of the Empire, C3-PO would spill the beans about Luke and Leia’s existence. But why only C3-PO and not R2-D2? Since R2-D2 has witnessed the same events as C3-PO, and maybe even more, they could just as easily plug him into a computer and extract any information they want out of him.

How: If I had it my way, it would go like this:
BAIL: I’m placing these droids in your care. Treat them well, clean them up, and most importantly…have their minds wiped.

C3-PO: What did he say?!

BAIL: Oh and…I think you should reprogram the protocol droid to be a bit more…useful.

C3-PO: Oh no!
