Star Wars: Bounty Hunter is a Star Wars video game developed and published by LucasArts for the GameCube and PlayStation 2 . In the game, players play as the bounty hunter Jango Fett featured in the 2002 Star Wars film Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. In the game Temuera Morrison reprised his role as the voice of Jango Fett and his likeness is used in some cutscenes.

The main objective of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter is to hunt the Dark Jedi named Komari Vosa. Players also fight many "bosses", such as Montross and the Bando Gora. There are also side objectives, such as collecting other bounties, that open special bonus items in the game. When you beat a chapter, blooper reels are unlocked.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The game starts off with Jango hunting a lowlife criminal for his friend Roz, a Toydarian. After the capture, Jango receives a transmission from Darth Tyranus inviting him to participate in "a special hunt... for a special prey." The reward is five million credits for the capture of the deranged leader of the Bando Gora, Komari Vosa. Jango agrees to the hunt.

There are rumors that the Bando Gora are behind some strange deathstick shipments, and Jango decides to pursue a low-life deathstick dealer, Jervis Gloom, wanted by the Coruscant police. Jango captures Gloom, and coerces him to reveal his sources. This leads Jango to a nerf processing plant and finds that one of the Senators is involved. He then fights his way to him and learns that the deathsticks came from Sebolto.

After Roz's advice, Jango proceeds to the asteroid prison Oovo IV to break out Bendix Fust, with the idea of delivering him to Sebolto to gain an audience. Deep in the prison, Jango is surprised when another bounty hunter, Zam Wesell, reaches Fust before him; only by coincidence. The two meet at gunpoint, but decide to work together to escape the lockdowned prison. Jango's ship, Jaster's Legacy, is destroyed; he then proceeds to commandeer a Firespray class police ship, naming it Slave I.

Jango and Zam travel to Malastare to deliver Fust to Sebolto. Zam delivers Fust while Jango goes in the "back way". This means trekking through the dense jungle. Zam manages to get away from Sebolto, and heads down the compound to where she has to call a Skiff hover vehicle for Jango to cross the Chasm separating the Compound from the Jungle. They then go back up the compound to Sebolto's Palace, and the dug king escapes down a pipe. In the next level, Sebolto is seen sliding down the pipe and down into a Death Stick Factory, at which Jango murmurs, "It'll be a sour batch..."

He ventures through the factory, eventually coming to an area full of Bando Gora. Once he gets past them, he reaches a supply ship. On further inspection, he finds Huttese markings on it. Then Montross comes with a Skiff hovership, and the two of them fight. Zam brings the ship and the two of them escape.

Not knowing which Hutt is involved with the Bando Gora, the pair split up to question the two Hutts, Jabba and Gardulla. Finding Jabba clean, Jango proceeds to Gardulla's palace, and finds Zam captured in a holding cell. Jango leaves her there to avoid sounding an alarm, and proceeds to search for Gardulla. After being briefly apprehended, Jango reaches Gardulla and learns the location of Vosa's system. He proceeds there alone.

After fighting his way across the planet's surface, Jango arrives at Vosa's castle, where he finds Montross is already waiting for him, and they duel a final time. Jango finally defeats Montross who wanted a warrior's death, but Jango lets the Bando Gora tear him apart as he walks away. Jango is finally able to proceed to Komari Vosa's lair. He manage's to penetrate the outer rooms, but is soon overwhelmed and taken prisoner by Bando Gora slaves. He is tortured, both physically and mentally, by Komari Vosa. Zam Wesell appears, and manages to free Jango from the restraints before being injured. Jango grabs his blasters, and drives Vosa out of the room. After tending to Zam, Jango followes Vosa through the castle and fatally wounds her. As she dies on the ground, Darth Tyranus steps from the shadows and greets Jango. Tyranus explains that the entire ordeal was a test, of which Jango had proven to be the best. He offers Jango a considerably larger sum to go to Kamino, to be the template for a clone army. Fett agrees, on the condition that he gets the first unaltered clone for himself.
