- "Ordinarily, Aargonar is an unimportant planet in and of itself."
Aargonar was an insignificant desert world with few population. The terrain was reminiscent of Tatooine for Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, with rock arches and stone spires dotting the once watery-planet. The planet had several moons, including Aargonar 3.
The world was located in space contested by the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. During the war, Mina Bonteri's husband went to Aargonar to set up a base, but died there during a battle with the Republic's clone troopers. About a year after the First Battle of Geonosis, Aargonar was the site of a significant battle of the Clone Wars involving Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi and Knights Bultar Swan, Anakin Skywalker and A'Sharad Hett. Despite Skywalker's heroic actions, the Republic forces were overwhelmed and forced to evacuate the planet.
