Leah and the Sin war

Lore and Story
When you enter the Drowned temple with Leah, she exclaims something like, "Look at all this architecture , it predates the Sin War!"

The Sin war supposedly took place approx 3000 years before the current events of the Diablo series according to the Diablo 3 wiki.

How does Leah even know what Pre Sin war Architecture look like?

Was this just more sensationalist, melodramatic, largely irrelevant nonsense that the lazy Diablo writers had their characters spout in order to produce a sense of "awe" from their players?

If that was the case, they failed. Miserably. I just felt embarrassed for the voice actor who had to say that line. It was embarrassing Blizz.
dont worry, lots of ppl get that way about stuff they dont understand at all.

Reference books?
Research is a skill not yet found in Sanctuary.
Supposedly, the Sin War predates the creation of the universe. In D1, one of the books explains that it has "burned hotter and longer than any of the stars in the sky".

IIRC, that line is for the duration of the Great Conflict. Sin War is the name the conflict gained when it came to mortal soil and humans started taking parts on it, as stated in another of D1's books.
