Unrealistic but happy

Luke had a pretty good amount of time to train with Yoda.
The Falcon’s hyperdrive, later retconed to primary hyperdrive, was busted so they couldn’t get from Hoth to Bespin quickly.
If the two planets were in the same planetary system and the Falcon had to make it on sublight speed, even assuming they could reach .5 c, it would be weeks if not months of travel.
And using the retcon of a slower, less effective backup hyperdrive it would take longer to jump from Hoth to Bespin than with the main drive.
Either way, Luke spent far linger training with Yoda than “a couple hours”.
I didn't get the impression that Han and Leia spent more than a few hours on the Falcon together at that time. I tell myself it might be like Interstellar, the part where an hour on the planet is like 10 years for the rest of the Universe but in reverse. So Luke on that planet for everyone else felt like a day, but for him ten years or so. Course, were that the case, he would be loathe to ever visit Yoda there again.Um, no, light takes about 5.5 to get from the sun to Pluto. Going at half light speed they can get from one side of a planetary system to another in a matter of days, not months. Though, I thought in the film the probably was more of limited range than speed.
