What capture? As far as I know, she was never captured.... I think part of the problem is you're starting with an end result in mind and forcing a plot that will make that happen. It will work better if you create a situation (after getting to know the characters thoroughly and as presented in the game first), and then let game lore and the characters guide you. If you let them 'speak', your work will be far more nuanced and exciting--for you as well as for the reader. A plot doesn't have to be complicated or have super powerful characters in it to be interesting. just create a situation that they care about and see what they do. That's why I say you need to play as many of the stories as possible, and the jedi knight for sure. You can't give control to the characters (at least in part) if you don't know them very, very well. And if you don't give control to the characters, your story will seem forced.
