Plot

With the beginning of the Clone Wars, the Jedi Council receives a distress call from Tatooine and sends the Padawan, Anakin Skywalker to investigate. After getting assaulted by Womp rats and battle droids, he investigates the cause of the Womp rats instigation.

The Force wielder that captured Anakin confronts him but, gets defeated.

Anakin is called to Coruscant by his master. Galactic City is getting attacked by droids in its underlevels. Anakin heads to the Jedi Temple before getting attacked by a lightsaber wielding man. He works with a fellow padawan to clear out the underlevels of the droids. Anakin is then, told to head to CoCo Town to find him but, this was a trap to lure him away from the Jedi Temple.
