The way I see it, Sidious asked them to help him destroy the Jedi (with the war). In return, he would help them gain money and power and leave them in peace once all was over with. Clearly, Sidious had his own plans and, instead of letting the Trade Federation be, he betrayed them and killed them.im still left without a wondering what the trade federation believes they are providing Sidious. gunrays line "lord sidious promised us peace" shows that his percieved part of the deal was not to help sidious start a war.
Usually in a deal or treaty both sides believe they are getting something in return, but theres nothing concievable that gunray should believe he is providing to sidious. I was wondering if there was something I missed or if this was explained in the RU, but I think its just a plot hole. I can accept that.
The part that confused me was when, in Attack of the Clones, Dooku says to Obi Wan that Nute was betrayed ten years ago by Sidious. At first I thought that was true, but then I realized, after watching ROTS, that Dooku lied about that too, to give his story more credibility. The only thing he may have been serious about was wanting Obi Wan to join him, so that he could become his apprentice and they could destroy Sidious together.
