I remember reading that they were one of the main reasons that the Emperor wanted such huge armys, fleets, and one reason for the Death Stars.
And in my conspiracy theory, knowing that only the descendants of the Chosen One could defeat the Vong, he abd^H^H^H recruited girls to serve as a breeding template for special forces when young Skywalker came of age. He named them the Emperor's Hands, after an ancient method of extracting DNA from a male in the days before engineered viruses.
It's one mission Luke gladly took on for the Emperor.
