Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels is a video game for the Wii focused on lightsaber combat. The game was developed by Krome Studios and released on November 11, 2008. It is based upon the Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie and TV series. It is also meant to have a similar feel to the TV series, as if the player is controlling the TV show.[2] Producer Ken Fox stated that "It's not a Lightsaber simulator, but when you swing your Wii remote left to right; your character does the same."[2] The game can be played with up to two players, however the game cannot be played online.

The game features 7 levels from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars as well as the TV episodes Duel of the Droids, Cloak of Darkness, and Destroy Malevolence. The duels are in the order the episode was made, not aired. And not all of the lightsaber duels from the series are seen, as Season 1 was still making episodes, so as not to give away all of the newer lightsabers fights, they did not put in the one from Lair of Grievous and The Hidden Enemy, although Kit Fisto and Grievous are both playable characters in the game.

Teth Castle DungeonEdit

The duel between Anakin Skywalker and Asajj Ventress that was deleted from the final draft of the film Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Unlike in the scene from the movie, the rancor was barely in the duel, and intermission in the duel was different.

Teth Castle RampartsEdit

The duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ventress from the The Clone Wars film.In rounds 2 and 3, at some point you should see the Twilight drop some cargo on you due to the deleted scene in which Ahsoka tries to dump the cargo out of the Twilight so it can jump to hyperspace. There are also several vulture droids flying low above you. At the end Asajj is crushed by rocks instead of escaping on a Vulture Droid.

Tatooine Dune SeaEdit

The duel between Anakin and Count Dooku on Tatooine from the film The Clone Wars. However, at the end, instead of Anakin leaving on Dooku's speeder after Dooku tries to taunt Skywalker with a hologram of his Padawan being beaten by the IG-100 MagnaGuards, after Dooku assuring Skywalker that he will not escape, Anakin knocks him into the Sarlacc Pit, stating, "That's a better fate than you deserve, Count."

Separatist Listening PostEdit

The duel between Ahsoka Tano and General Grievous from the episode Duel of the Droids but it was outside the station instead of inside the station like in the episode. Also, in round 2 of the fight, R2 and R3 can be seen battling. Ahsoka slices Grievous' back and jumps into a gunship whilst a coughing Grievous lands on his personal fighter, whilst in the episode Grievous chokes Ahsoka who takes advantage of an explosion to slice the hand that she was being choked with.

The TranquilityEdit

A duel between Ahsoka and Ventress aboard the Tranquility from the episode Cloak of Darkness. A difference, though, is that Luminara Unduli never appears and the second part of the fight, Ahsoka and Ventress go to the ruins of the Tranquility. With Ventress, instead of escaping, getting blasted by a gas explosion, then which Ahsoka notes that she does not need her master to save her.

The NegotiatorEdit

The duel between Obi-Wan and Dooku based during the episode Shadow of Malevolence. In the level, while Anakin Skywalker and his forces fight the Malevolence, Dooku attacks Obi-Wan's ship and attacks Kenobi. After a long duel, Obi-Wan defeats Dooku, but is forced to leave the clone troopers to watch Dooku as he goes with Anakin to fight the Malevolence. Dooku kills the clones and escapes.

The MalevolenceEdit

The duel between Obi-Wan and Grievous from the episode Destroy Malevolence. At the end, Grievous is knocked off of the train into the chasm by a low bridge after trying to crush Kenobi with a crate instead of Obi Wan jumping off onto another train and escaping.

Separatist Droid LabEdit

The Separatists create a series of EG-5 Jedi Hunter droids to fight the Jedi. The Jedi Council sends Anakin to prevent the droids from becoming on line. He fights one of the EG-5 droid's. The droid is powerful, but Anakin's skill with a lightsaber outmatch the droid's and the droid is defeated.

Rancor PitEdit

There is one map available for unlock if you win 100 games with no loses. All characters must be unlocked in order for this to happen. The bonus map is Rancor Pit.

Battle ModeEdit

Battle mode is a single player mode where you pick a character, and your opponent and environment are randomly selected. There are no rules about who your opponent is, as they can be on your side, or even yourself! Like in the campaign mode, you win when you win 2/3 matches. You can also choose the difficulty level. When you win a certain number of matches, you are awarded a new costume, no matter what difficulty level.

Behind the scenesEdit

On the Tranquility level on campaign mode Ventress tells Ahsoka to stand down and she'll give her a cookie, after calling her "Skywalker's filthy, obnoxious little pet", during the opening movie when this statement was not said in the episode: Cloak of Darkness.

If the player should choose to play Plo Koon against Plo Koon, one of the Jedi can be heard saying "This is Master Filoni's dream come true." This is a reference to the director of The Clone Wars TV series, Dave Filoni, who has stated that Plo Koon was his favorite Jedi.

If the player chooses to play Obi-Wan Kenobi against Kit Fisto and beats him in 2 rounds, he can be heard saying "In my experience, there's no such thing as luck. Only skill." This is a reference to the similar statement Obi-Wan says to Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

If a player chooses play Anakin Skywalker against Anakin Skywalker, he can be heard saying "Don't get any ideas about Padme" and also "If I'm the chosen one, does that mean we're the chosen two?" All of that references to the movies.
