Lucas obviously wanted the Princess to hook up with the Rogue With a Heart of Gold to shake things up, so of course he had to nip in the bud any chances of her ending up with Farm Boy.
The bit about them being brother and sister wasn't introduced into series canon with the original movie (IIRC, it was introduced in RotJ, where Han asked Leia if she cared for Luke (implying that he'd step aside to avoid interfering in their relationship), and was extremely happy with her response "Of course I care for him - he's my brother".

In the novel "Splinter of the Mind's Eye", certain plot elements would not make sense (except to stereotyped Rednecks) if the "brother/sister" bit had already been introduced into series canon.
Any fool can piss on the floor. It takes a talented SC to shit on the ceiling.
