Luke Skywalker always seems to care heavily about his father, and even after getting to know that Vader is his father, he never seems to ask who his mother was. After all, the stories that his Uncle and Aunt told him, were not really correct, so anything they might (and have) told him should have been questionable to him, too.

Yet, in the movies he never asks about his mother. His father seems to be his only concern. Does he never care who his mother was? After all, it"s at least likely that his mom was a Jedi, too. Is there any explanation in the extended universe or maybe even a scene where he does ask?

After Luke had learned that Leia is his sister, he asks her if she has any memory of her mother (which Luke now knows is his mother as well):

Princess Leia: Luke, what"s wrong?

Luke: Leia, do you remember your mother? Your real mother?

Princess Leia: Just a little bit. She died when I was very young.

Luke: What do you remember?

Princess Leia: Just... images really. Feelings.

Luke: Tell me.

Princess Leia: She was... very beautiful. Kind, but sad. Why are you asking me this?

Luke: I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her.

Luke does care about his mother.

In the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy, Luke goes on a mission to search for his mother which Leia had opposed with the reason that he had already gone over the entire imperial archive as well as force probed Leia multiple times to try to find clues about their mother.

Luke also stumbles across information about his mother in The Dark Nest Trilogy, in a hidden segment of R2-D2"s memory. This is when Luke finally finds out who his mother really was, after Leia"s research determines that the tall blonde man is definitely Anakin Skywalker, and the woman he is speaking with is definitely Senator Amidala of Naboo. This is after Luke begins to suspect that his wife, Mara Jade Skywalker, may have murdered his mother - without knowing her true identity - during her time as Palpatine"s servant (known as the Emperor"s Hand). These thoughts help prompt the research.
