Three years after the initial battle of the Clone Wars, the long and tiring conflict between the Separatists and the Republic is nearing its end. However, Obi-Wan Kenobi, now a Jedi Master, and Anakin Skywalker, now a Jedi Knight, learn a shocking development. Coruscant is under attack! They hurry back to Coruscant to counter the attack led by General Grievous, the leader of the Separatist droid armies, and a much bigger threat than even Count Dooku, a former Jedi turned Sith. They are now charged with bringing him to justice, but there is more going on than just an attack on the center of the Republic. Little by little, Chancellor Palpatine transforms the Republic into a tyrannical regime, putting him at odds with the Jedi Order and a few non-corrupt senators, who have all grown weary of his staying in power. Anakin, on the other hand, has grown closer to Palpatine, but he also suffers from disturbing visions of his wife-in-secret, Senator Padme Amidala. He has been leaning closer and closer to the dark side since before the Clone Wars began, and Palpatine encourages him to embrace it. When it all comes down to it, Obi-Wan Kenobi will have no choice but to face his former apprentice in battle, and as the Clone Wars end, the seeds will be sown for yet another conflict which will determine the fate of the galaxy.
