In the final year of the Clone Wars, the 212th Attack Battalion and 501st Legion of the Republic Military undertook an assault on Cato Neimoidia,[1] with Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi again teaming up[3] as part of the effort to capture the Trade Federation's leader, Nute Gunray. The viceroy's stronghold in the western hemisphere of the planet Cato Neimoidia was marked as the prime target for the attack. The attempt ultimately failed as Gunray fled into the Outer Rim,[2] but the Republic were able to capture his mechno-chair, which gave the Republic's intelligence services important clues about the Sith behind the war.[1] Skywalker claimed to have saved Kenobi's life at some stage of the operation.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

"So, if you want to treat Labyrinth of Evil as "that business," nothing that happens in my book will negate that. They take place at two different points in the timeline, so they can totally co-exist. It's totally cool."
―Mike Chen[4]

The "Anakin Skywalker" issue of Star Wars Encyclopedia stated that Skywalker claimed that he had saved Kenobi's life during the incident on Cato Neimoidia towards the end of the war,[3] explaining Skywalker's line in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith about saving Kenobi's life during "business on Cato Neimoidia."[5] Within Star Wars Legends, the business was described in the Battle of Cato Neimoidia seen in James Luceno's novel Labyrinth of Evil.[4] However, the canon novel Brotherhood by Mike Chen later featured a mission to Cato Neimodia from much earlier in the war said to be the "business" mentioned in Revenge of the Sith.[6] Being a large fan of Labyrinth of Evil, Chen made sure that his book did not contradict the other account, telling fans that they were free to continue to view Labyrinth of Evil as the business on Cato Neimoidia if they preferred.[4]
