Description: In this final installment of the prequel trilogy, the Clone Wars have raged for two years. The galaxy is divided between Count Dooku's Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Republic, which is led by Chancellor Palpatine. In the political unrest, Palpatine schemes to end the Jedi order, dissolve the Republic and declare himself Emperor of the Galactic Empire, using his clone army and Sith Warriors to do so. Lured by the power offered by Palpatine, Anakin draws closer to the Dark Side. To complicate matters, he and Padme are parents to twins -- Luke and Leia. Fearful of Anakin's turn to the Dark Side, Obi-Wan confronts his former student, trying to dissuade him from joining ranks with the Sith. Obi-Wan and Anakin face each other in a duel -- leaving Anakin wounded and presumed dead. Palpatine seizes the opportunity and takes the injured Jedi under his wing. Using technology to heal Anakin, Palpatine creates a new and powerful Sith warrior -- Darth Vader. With Vader at his side, Palpatine lays waste to the Jedis and Dooku's army and creates the new Empire. Now, Obi-Wan and the last remaining Jedis must rally to save Princess Padme and the twins (who have been separated to be raised unaware of each other's existence) in hopes that someday the next generation will lead a revolution to unseat Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
