KW: What kind of mission are the Jedi on?
CL: The story begins right where season one left off with Anakin and Ahsoka on the recently liberated planet of Ryloth mopping up the remaining droid army presence when they stumble across a sinister plot that calls for all our Republic Heroes to step in.
KW: What abilities do the Jedi have?
CL: The Jedi like in the TV show are very acrobatic they have their lightsaber, as well as the force on their side. We're also introducing a new Jedi move in the game called the "Droid-Jak", at any time you can jump on top of and take control of any droid in the game, whether its to solve a puzzle or use the droid as a weapon is up to you!
KW: How many Clone characters are there to choose from?

Oh and don't forget you can also play as the bounty hunter Cad Bane!
KW: What kind of mission are the Clones on?
CL: The clones follow the same story as our Jedi heroes, like in the show the clones and Jedi work together and so players will also be able to experience that in game by helping each other out as they uncover the story. Like I mentioned before the story begins at the end of season one, it also leads up to and bridges the gap into season two which starts this fall.
KW: What abilities do the Clones have?
CL: Clones are tactical and technical. They have the ability to hack into consoles, use Jet-packs and have an arsenal of weaponry from Thermal Detonators to Rocket Launchers.
