Star Wars: The Ultimate Gamble
The Clone Wars
The Clone Wars, also known as the Clone War and the Great Clone War, was the name given to the major galactic conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The war was named after the clone troopers utilized by the Republic against the battle droid forces of the Separatists. These armies, the Grand Army of the Republic and the Separatist Droid Army, were two of the largest ever pitted against each other in galactic history, and the fighting between them rapidly spread to countless inhabited worlds.
Unbeknownst to most of those involved, the conflict was started, and maintained by the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious, whose ultimate goal was the transformation of the Republic into the Galactic Empire. Senator Padmé Amidala secretly a Sith apprentice to a mysterious Sith Lord, murdered the chancellor and positioned herself to became Empress Amidala. She transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire as well as the eradication of the Jedi Order through the Great Jedi Purge. The conflict led to the Order of the Sith Lords controlling the dominant galactic government.
