Plot summary[]

Padmé Amidala lands on Coruscant. However, her ship and decoy are hit with a bomb. She is, then, assigned the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice to protect her. Later, Jango Fett sends kouhuns after her via Zam Wesell. Obi-Wan Kenobi jumps on ASN-121, but Wesell shoots the droid down. Kenobi lands on a borrowed airspeeder and they pursue the bounty hunter. They end up at the Outlander Club where a Balosar tries to sell him death sticks. Wesell then is captured by Kenobi and Skywalker. Before she can reveal the bounty hunter's name, Fett kills her, her last words being bounty hunter slimeball in Huttese.

Later, Kenobi attempts to locate Fett, while Skywalker takes Amidala back to Naboo. Kenobi tracks Fett to Kamino. There, he discovers a clone army for the Galactic Republic, said to have been ordered by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. He goes to Fett's apartment and is met by Boba Fett, his clone "son."

Skywalker and Amidala had a love connection, which the latter denied. They then located Watto, who told them the way to the Lars homestead. Afterwards, Skywalker went to the Tusken village that had his mother and killed every one of them. He then confessed to Amidala. They then headed to Geonosis to rescue Kenobi (who had tracked Fett and was captured), which broke into a full-scale war, in which Grand Master Yoda almost defeated Count Dooku (or Darth Tyranus), who fled.

In the end, Count Dooku returned to to his Master Darth Sidious to report that "The war has begun." Then, Yoda, Mace Windu, and Kenobi are talking, and Yoda announces, "The shroud of the dark side has fallen. Begun this Clone War has." Later, Bail Prestor Organa, Onaconda Farr, Mas Amedda, and Palpatine are watching as Republic clone troopers load on ships. On Naboo, Skywalker and Amidala kiss in a holy marriage.
