The war that had begun two years earlier had spread throughout the galaxy, with brutal battles taking place on [[Invasion of Belsavis|Belsavis]], [[Battle of Corellia|Corellia]], and [[Battle of Ilum|Ilum]]. While the Republic and the Empire battled one another, they also had cause to join against mutual enemies, such as when [[Darth Malgus]] declared his "[[New Empire]]" and unleashed a stealth armada using [[Ilum/Legends|Ilum's]] [[Adegan crystal]]s, and the siege of the [[Karagga's Palace|palace]] of [[Karagga|Karagga the Unyielding]], the Hutt Cartel's [[Supreme Mogul]], on [[Nal Hutta/Legends|Nal Hutta]].

After the death of Karagga, [[Toborro]] rose to power as the new Supreme Mogul of the Hutt Cartel, and sought to take advantage of the war between the Empire and the Republic in order to establish the Hutt Cartel as a dominant force in the galaxy. To achieve this, the Cartel seized control of the independent resource-rich world of Makeb, on the border between the Republic and [[Hutt Space/Legends|Hutt Space]].<ref name="CoM">[http://www.swtor.com/info/media/trailers/making-rise-hutt-cartel-part-2-conflict-makeb Video Documentary: Conflict on Makeb, on SWTOR.com]</ref> The seizure was aided by the Hutts purchasing the loyalty of the [[InterStellar Regulators]], a mercenary army that had served as Makeb's defense force. While a handful opposed the Hutt takeover, the vast majority of the Regulators joined the Cartel's forces in claiming the planet.
