Not too far off, but her last name is Shan. As for not appearing much in the game files(beyond dialog of course), it's just a labeling issue. Not that these things couldn't have her last name, but just calling most things concerning her directly 'bastila', instead of having the last name with it, is a bit easier.

But if your really asking why the "Last Name" box in the utc file isn't used, I would imagine that it's something that was only used in the previous games with this engine, and wasn't really needed here.
