Summary[edit | edit source]
The chapters—lasting 3 to 5 minutes each—feature one major storyline surrounded by a series of many battles. Count Dooku auditions for a bounty hunter on the planet Rattatak by pitting them against each other in a battle arena. Asajj Ventress kills every one of the bounty hunters and is sent on a mission to assassinate Anakin Skywalker. She engages him in a space battle, through the streets of Muunilinst and eventually leading him into Yavin 4, where the two engage in a lightsaber duel, Anakin emerges the victor, despite it being through means of rage and fear (feelings of a Dark Jedi).
Apart from the main storyline, many battles ensue, including Mace Windu's fight on Dantooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi fighting bounty hunter Durge and the banking clan, Kit Fisto's battle against the Quarren on Mon Calamari, the adventures on Ilum and the Battle of Hypori in which General Grievous makes his first appearance in Star Wars media.
