I was thinking that too... Certainly possible. It's like the Falcon was around at the dawn of civilization in Star Wars.
How do ya sell more different toys though!? - George Lucas
Yeah, I'm a Lucas apologist, but I never believed he was only out to sell toys for one reason. If you wanted to sell more toys, your main characters would change clothes every 15 minutes. In the prequels, Obi-Wan wore essentially one outfit. No disguises, no formal wear, no casual wear, no climate specific clothes, just his Jedi stuff.
