The Confederacy of Independent Systems (or Separatist Alliance or Separatists) are a faction featured in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. The Separatists are a breakaway state consisting of a diverse collection of megacorporations, dissatisfied systems and other secessionist and anti-republic factions that oppose the Galactic Republic and seek to secede from it through military force and establish a new galactic government. Utilizing a vast army consisting mostly of droids, the CIS, led by Viceroy Nute Gunray fought the Galactic Republic in the Clone Wars and was able to perform reasonably well militarily. Despite this success, by the end of the Clone Wars however, they are defeated and shattered by the new Galactic Empire, although various Separatist holdouts and other remnants of the Confederacy would continue to exist in the Outer Rim and Wild Space well into the age of the Empire, eventually giving birth to the Rebel Alliance. They are part of the Dark Side, and their main enemy in the Light Side is the Galactic Republic.
- During the beta for Star Wars Battlefront II, the Separatists as a faction was referred to as the "Separatist Alliance."
