It would be too hard to free a leader that way. Just retreat and they are safe. It's the same reason why the Death Star can't retreat. It makes Death Star Plans much less powerful. It's a happy match that it fits the fluff, however.
I am confused:
1. when retreating you can't take a captured leader with you.
2. the fact that the DS can't retreat is usually good for the rebels. it allows them more passes with the plans, also the Empire can't make the DS make double moves that are possible in other scenarios.
