Darth Sidious decided to leave Maul and Savage alone, seeing them as a very useful distraction for the Jedi and finding many possible uses for their army even without Maul and Savage around. The Jedi, knowing that Maul will come for them, have devised a plan to cripple the crime syndicate. Obi-Wan Kenobi has challenged Maul to an ultimate standoff on Tatooine, with no soldiers, Mandalorians or clones, being allowed to set foot on the planet. Maul, in his hubris, accepts, leaving Savage in charge of proceedings. While Maul and Kenobi are fighting on the desolate desert planet, with no outside communications, the Republic launched an offensive on Mandalore. Special clone commando squads drew enemy fire as the Jedi Master Luminara and her apprentice Barriss Offee sneaked up to the throne room, switfly dispatched the guards and challenged Opress to a lightsaber duel.

- This is Light Barriss, not the corrupted Barriss that dueled Anakin on the Temple

Who wins? Will the Jedi manage to cut down the monstrous Zabrak or shall the Dark Side warrior emerge victorious and render the Jedi's plan a complete failure?
