Yep. Even the most ludicrous connections can be made thanks to the will of the Force. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it borders on "there is no free will in a galaxy far, far away." It depends on the skill of the writer. In my new Canon experience, Claudia Gray is really good at it, Johnston less so, and Kevin Hearne did it with all the subtlety of a Death Star. Most of the other Star Wars writers are somewhere between Gray and Johnston.
