Simple is the thirty-first episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.
On a distant planet, a war is about to start between red beings and blue beings. Ben, Gwen and Kevin travel within Ship to this distant planet. On the Plumber trackers, they get a message from a little girl named Probity to stop the war. When they arrive, Ben tries to talk the red aliens into not fighting, and then Kevin meets up with an old friend, Argit and they start selling weapons to both sides. Ben's influencing doesn't work and the red soldiers attack. Ben turns into Lodestar (Ben transformed into Lodestar, off-screen, at the end of War of the Worlds: Part 2), a new alien with magnetic powers, and fights back. The red team backs away and retreats.
Ben then talks to the Blue leader during lunch, he tells Ben that he hates war too, but states that they need to defend themselves. After a ceasefire, Ben's various attempts at getting the two sides to form a peace treaty fail. Ben then takes direct action by taking the two leaders away and confronting them about making a peace treaty. That night, Ben is attacked by the leaders and falls down, but transforms into Goop to save himself. The day of the war comes and Ben turns into Way Big and goes in between the two armies. He talks them into not fighting, but Way Big accidentally knocks down the statue of their sage, Zabin, and the two leaders declare this as an act of war on Ben instead of fighting against each other, uniting them.
Ben, Gwen, and Kevin are forced to retreat and leave the two sides to their war. Kevin is forced to leave Argit and his loot behind as he boards Ship as they leave.
In the end, Probity records a message to Ben saying that now she has no home, has to work double time, and hates him more than the war. She then discovers Kevin's loot which makes her happy.
