Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu are on a mission to free the planet of Ryloth from Separatist control. Obi-Wan leads the initial attack, with his clones under orders to keep damage to the civilian population to a minimum. They are squaring off against a Separatist tactical droid, TX-20, who attempts to use the Republic’s sense of honor against them. With the Separatists shielding their weaponry with Twi’lek hostages, Obi-Wan must find a way to eliminate the droid forces without bringing the natives to harm. Meanwhile, two clones befriend a young Twi’lek girl, who may provide the key to the situation.

This is our first good look at “ordinary” Twi’leks, a race first seen in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi in the form of Jabba the Hutt’s major domo, Bib Fortuna, and his dancer, Oola.
