Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Starcrusher Trap

(Art by the Fillbach Brothers)

22 BBY.  The Jedi undertake a mission to destroy the Separatists' newest superweapon, the Starcrusher, but it soon becomes obvious that the mission is a trap aimed directly at the Jedi themselves.

Generally, this is just a run-of-the-mill Clone Wars story in which the likes of Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka charge around with their lightsabers and make distinctly unfunny quips.

I did like the inclusion of the Jedi Jyl Somtay from a hard-to-find short story but that positive point is offset by the fact that, with Jyl around, Ahsoka begins acting like Anakin's jealous girlfriend.  This is distinctly uncomfortable considering a) he's married and b) she's fourteen!
