A couple of years after the events of The Phantom Menace
The core worlds are at an uneasy, decadent peace. The protectionist policies of the Trade Federation are continuing to harm Rim Planets with unreasonable tariffs for non-members.
Jedi are pretty badass. Even the wussy jedi are usually handy in a fight. They can parry blaster bolts, and cut things up. Anyone except for ‘boss battles’ is unlikely to be that much of a threat. That’s one of the reasons why killing people is so frowned upon – A jedi almost always has many options.
This is part of the Universal truth.
