The Mirror of Twilight was already being guarded by the Sages and the Twili already seemed to have a society by the time of Ganondorf's execution. There appears to be a good deal of time between the initial sealing and the OoT era.
That's a good point, actually. Okay, so I think we can safely say they're not the same war.
I thought the whole reason the Twili were sealed was because they tried to obtain the Triforce? It's hard to say though because for some dumb reason they were intentionally vague about anything relating the Triforce, even when they go and show it it to you in your face. Oh well.
I can see why you would think that. During Lanayru's speech about the Dark Tribe's sealing, there is an image of Link running towards the Triforce, which does instinctively imply that the Triforce was his goal. But here's the thing; nothing depicted during Lanayru's speech was literal; everything was symbolic.
When Lanayru referred to the goddesses, we saw three balls of coloured light.
When Lanayru referred to the world, we saw a hilltop.
When Lanayru referred to the people, we saw them represented as Link and Ilia.
When Lanayru referred to the people's greed, we saw Link and Ilia's eyes go white to show blindness.
When Lanayru referred to the kingdom of Hyrule, the Triforce appeared.
When Lanayru referred to the Dark Tribe, we saw them as Shadow Links.
I believe that in this context, the Triforce is just Hyrule's symbol. Lanayru merely refers to a war for conquest over Hyrule.
