According to WordOfGod, the first two trilogies have a framing device that [=R2-D2=] is telling the whole story (and tends to embellish a bit, which is why the plot sometimes stops so other characters can praise his heroism).

Stevenson]] - in fact any of those writers between about 1885 and 1939 who wrote stories in which chaps who only ever refer to one another by their surnames are reluctantly persuaded by other chaps at the club to tell tall stories".

For example, after Hercules defeated a gang of bandits who wear serpent masks, Iolus claimed he defeated a many-headed serpent called the Hydra.
