Halo 2 ended in a cliff-hanger, with the Master Chief, the hero of the Halo series, returning to Earth in the midst of a climactic battle between the Covenant, an alien coalition, and Earth’s defensive forces. Halo 3 is about Earth under Covenant rule:
“With its defensive forces, all but obliterated, Earth has fallen to the unstoppable might of the Covenant.
