Star Wars TCS: Super Story Tips and Walkthroughs (In Progress – Episodes I Through IV Complete)

When I completed Star Wars: TCS to 100℅, the achievement didn’t unlock. So, since I’m a freak about these things, I’m going back and playing the game to 100% all over again in the hopes that I’ll get the achievement. I’ve just made it through story mode of Episode I and remembered that I didn’t really mention Super Stories much, if at all, so here’s a quick explanation: the game gives you an hour time limit to finish all six levels in the episode and collect a total of 100,000 studs. Completing a Super Story doesn’t earn you a Gold Brick, just percentage toward the 100%. It’s very likely that, if you’re very close to 100% and don’t know what you’re missing, it’s the Super Stories.

A few things to remember when working on Super Stories:

  • The one-hour time limit is a challenge, not a requirement. You can go over the hour and still get the percentage toward your 100% completion. Same goes with the 100,000 studs.
  • If you do want to get through as quickly as possible (and you probably will, because six levels nonstop is tiring and sometimes even boring), only collect the studs that are laying around or appear by doing things you would have to do to move on in the level anyway. Basically, don’t smash or Force things for more studs– it just wastes time.
  • Don’t explore the areas; just do what you need to do to get through the levels.
  • Sometimes you can sneak past enemies– do this as much as you can.

Here I’ve chronicled my Super Story playthroughs so that you can see exactly what I did to get in and get out as fast as I could. I’ll post it and update whenever I finish a new Super Story.

Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Negotiations: Collect the studs laying around in the first room, then Force the doors open and battle the droids. Continue down the hallway, defeating more droids, then take a right and do the same thing again. Use TC-14 to activate the panel and head through, then Force the switch on the wall and assemble the pieces for another panel. Activate it using TC-14 and head through. Smash the crates for some studs, then Force the barrier off of the wall and battle some more droids. Head through the doorway to the second area.
Battle the droids here while collecting any studs laying around, then head to the left and drop down for a path of studs. Hop back up to the upper level at the end of the path, collect the power-up, and drop down again to collect some studs while battling some more droids and Droidekas. Once they’re gone, get the rest of the studs on the ground and on the upper ledge to the right, then Force the platform and hop over. Collect some more studs on the ground and on top of the transport. Disable the force field and battle the droids that subsequently appear, then use TC-14 on the panel and head inside. Total Time So Far: 4:29. Total Studs So Far: 23,250.

Invasion of Naboo: Head forward, keeping your Lightsaber out in case any of the droids decide to attack. Head right into the clearing for a group of studs, then back onto the path. A group of four droids will attack near the fallen tree, then five more once you’ve Forced the tree up. Collect the studs along the sides of the path and Force the engine until the transport explodes. Collect as many studs as you can before they disappear, then take care of the five droids. Collect some more studs along the sides of the path. A quick cutscene will give you Jar Jar, then you can finish collecting the studs on the stairs and head into the second area.
Collect the studs on the ground, then Force the mosaic of Jar Jar into a platform and collect the studs in the alcove. Hop across and drop down for more studs, then Force the gears and jump up on the platform with Jar Jar for four blue studs. Keep jumping up and across, collecting any studs along the way, and defeat the droid in the alcove and the two once you’ve reached the ground. Force the blocks into a platform, then use Jar Jar to jump onto the ledge for some more blue studs. Jump across on the platform and defeat two more droids, then smash the stone face on the wall for some more studs and head into the third area.
Collect any studs laying around, Force the platform and drop down for a blue stud, and head up the ramp. Go through the swamp, battling any droids, and head for the power-up behind the tree on the right side. Drop down, take care of the droids, and Force the wood in the back for lots of studs. Switch to Jar Jar and head to the right, jumping up on the ledge and collecting any studs before lowering the rock. Head through to the final area.
Collect some more studs while fighting through droids and heading toward the water. Get the studs at the edge before going in and finishing the level. Total Time So Far: 9:58. Total Studs So Far: 58,730.

Escape from Naboo: Ignoring the studs, head straight for the droids and start attacking. Grapple up and head along the balcony, collecting a few studs at the end, then grapple up again. Go left for a blue stud, then attack two more droids and destroy the flowers at the end for another grappling point. Destroy the gold canister on the right for a power-up, then destroy the flowers and windows for studs. Grapple up again, defeat the droids, and head for the exit on the right.
Head toward the screen and collect the studs, then destroy the flowers for more studs. Collect some more on your way to the droids, then defeat them and head to the next area.
Get whatever studs you can in this little circular room before shooting one of the windows and breaking out. Destroy the droids along the balcony, then head left and drop down. Defeat a few droids, then head along the balcony to the right for some studs and grapple back up. Head right, shoot the target, and go through to the next area.
Destroy the green casing and drop down, quickly switching to one of the Jedi, and get rid of the droids. Grab the power-up and continue forward, moving along the stairs in order to collect the studs on the stairs and those on the ground at the same time. Defeat the droids, then destroy the gold canisters to get the elevators moving and use either Queen Amidala or Captain Panaka to hop on the elevators and shoot the targets on the wall. This will raise the gate, allowing you into the next area.
Destroy the flowers for some more studs and continue to the droids. Defeat the first group, then head up to the second group. Jump to the upper level and push the first two buttons on the skylights, then defeat the next two droids and push the third button. Drop down and defeat the rest of the droids, then destroy the casing with the green lights and jump into the hole to end the level. Total Time So Far: 16:35. Total Studs So Far: 84,740.

Mos Espa Pod Race: Ignore all studs, poles, etc. and just focus on hitting all of the boost pads and going as fast as ou can. You’ll automatically hit a bunch of poles and get a ton of studs anyway, and if you were anywhere near my stud total so far from the previous level, there’s a good chance you’ll be over 100,000 by the time the level’s over. (Just look at the difference between my stud total from the previous level and for this level.). All you have to do is make it through three laps and be in first place by the end. Total Time So Far: 19:35. Total Studs So Far: 132,480.

Retake Theed Palace: Since I’ve reached my stud goal, I’ll be ignoring the studs from here on out for the most part, but keep collecting any loose studs if you haven’t made it yet. There’s a ton of droids and two Droidekas up ahead for you to defeat, then Force the blocks into a ramp and use R2-D2 on the panel to get to the next area.
Force the hook and the platform, then head forward where some more droids and Droidekas will attack. Step on the buttons on the floor and a few more droids will be revealed. Head down the hallway for four more droids, then destroy the statue on the left. Assemble the pieces into a panel and use R2-D2 to open the door. Head out into the next area.
There’s three sets of droids on the ground level, so once they’re defeated, head forward and Force the blocks into stairs. A few more droids are waiting up here. Once they’re gone, Force the bridge together and head forward for one more set of droids. Walk along the balcony, destroying the large crate on the opposite side with the Force, then destroy the flower pot and step on the button. Use Anakin to crawl through the vent to reach the other side, then through another vent and step on the button to open the door. Drop down and go back to the other side, then head to the next area.
There are two sets of droids on the ground level. By the time you defeat them both you should be on the far right side. Force the pieces onto the elevator, then head to the left and destroy the flowers for a grappling point. Go back to the beginning of the area and use one of the Jedi to stand on one of the crates. Force each other up, hop onto the window sill, Force the next platform up, and hop across to the vent. Step on all of the buttons to raise the gate to the next area.
Take care of the droids, then head toward the stairs for a few more droids to run out. Up the stairs you’ll find a Droideka. Destroy the statue in the center once it’s been defeated and head down the stairs and to the right.
Walk into the hangar and head to the left. Start by destrying the gold canister to reveal a grappling point, then grapple up and hop across. Shoot the droid, then drop back down. In the back corner, stack the large crate, then the two smaller crates using the Force, then climb up and destroy the droid up here. Head right and you’ll be attacked by a group of droids and a Droideka. To the right of this group will be two more droids to destroy, and directly to their left are two crates for the Jedi to stand on to force each other up. The final droid will be found up here, so after destroying it you can head toward the far right. Activate the panel with R2-D2 to end the level. Total Time So Far: 30:26. Total Studs So Far: 136,180.

Darth Maul: Head to the edge of your side and some droids will run out. Deflect their bolts back at them to destroy them, then Darth Maul will try to Force something at you. Use your Force to redirect it back at him, and the droids will return. Do the same thing as you did before a few more times, and eventually Darth Maul will leave. Force the pieces down to reach the other side and go through the door.
Just follow Darth Maul, jumping across gaps and Forcing platforms until you reach the end.
Hop onto the platform in the center, then onto the one after that. Droids will be called in, so defeat them as quickly as you can. Next you’ll be faced with two Droidekas, so just deflect their bolts back until they’ve been destroyed. Hop onto one of the platforms and step on the button to raise another platform and reach the next area.
Just keep flipping the switches until you reach the end.
Hit Darth Maul as many times as you can before he jumps up on a platform and Forces things at you. Force them back, and eventually he’ll jump down where you can finish him off.

Total Time: 35:51. Total Studs: 140,320.

Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Bounty Hunter Pursuit: Keep the button to shoot held in during the entire level, and don’t go after piles of studs– you can do this in the actual character levels. Just follow the other vehicle through to the second area.
Shoot all of the turrets, then fly over each white light on the ground. Collect three torpedoes from the center and shoot the yellow things, then refill and shoot them on the opposite side. Follow the other vehicle.
Follow the vehicle around the area and through the tunnel at the end.
Exactly like the second area, only with more turrets and things to explode with torpedoes at the end. Shoot the turrets, shoot down the blue things, fly over the white lights, collect the torpedoes, and shoot down the yellow things to continue.
Keep your shoot button held in and attack the other vehicle until the level ends. Total Time So Far: 6:18. Total Studs So Far: 23,400.

Discovery on Kamino: Go ahead and collect some of those tempting studs that are lying around everywhere. Force the gears near the Kaminoan, then follow her to the next area.
Follow her through the second area.
Step on the buttons to light them all up, then Force the handle down. After a quick cutscene, head down the left hallway and use R4-P17 to unlock the panel on the wall. Head through to the next area.
Follow the Kaminoan down the hall and through the door.
Defeat the drones, then exit the room back into the previous area.
Deflect the bolts and follow Jango Fett into another room.
Follow him through the escape hatch.
Follow Jango Fett, getting close enough to the detonators to set them off but staying far enough away that you won’t be killed in the blast. Once you reach the button, step on it and use R4-P17 to hover across and step on the opposite button to allow Obi-Wan across. Force away the blockage from the panel, then activate it and continue.
Head down the hall with R4-P17, activate the panels on the wall, then switch to Obi-Wan and defeat the drones. Force away the blocks on the left side and activate the panel to move onto the final area.
Deflect Jango Fett’s shots, then Force his detonators back at him. Hit him a final time to end the level. Total Time So Far: 12:32. Total Studs So Far: 47,520.

Droid Factory: A bunch of Geonosians are hiding in the cracks of the walls, and once you’ve defeated them all, the door to the second area will open.
Walk across the conveyor belt, being careful not to touch the presses, which will automatically kill you. A Droideka will attack after passing through the first press. Head past its location to two more presses in a row, after which you’ll be reunited with R2-D2. A few droids are around the corner. You can Force the fans together for some studs, or just Force the last one and ride it up to the next area.
Grapple up and shoot the target with Padme. Drop down and hop across, then grapple up again and shoot the second target. Wait for the bucket to come back, then hop on and jump off on the other side. Drop down to the lower level if you aren’t already there, then use Anakin to Force the piece on the wall and Padme to shoot the target. Ride the bucket up into some droids and a Droideka, and destroy them before dropping down again. Quickly hop across the next bucket, then cross the gap and destroy the crates. Activate the Astromech panel and go through to the next area.
Use the Force on the center console to allow Anakin and C-3PO onto the platform. Force it two more times to turn it, then Force the other one. Cross to the second one and Force it until you can reach the other side. Activate the panel with C-3PO and go through to the next area.
Defeat a bunch more Geonosians until you reach the lava pit. Grapple up with Padme and shoot the pieces down, then Force them up with Anakin. Cross with R2-D2 and activate the panel, then defeat the two Droidekas and activate the panel with C-3PO.
Activate the right panel, then Force the crate down and hit it to destroy the force field. Grab the power-up and head through, defeating all of the enemies. Once they’re gone, Force Obi-Wan’s restraints off to end the level. Total Time So Far: 22:00. Total Studs So Far: 102,980.

Jedi Battle: Destroy the required five droids and two Droidekas, then Force Padme down. Head to the right, where you’ll find Anakin surrounded by five Super Battle Droids and two more Droidekas. Force Anakin down once they’re gone, and head right again for two Super Battle Droids and five Droidekas. Force Obi-Wan down and prepare for more battle. First, six droids, then three droids and three Super Battle Droids. Finally, a quick and easy battle with Jango Fett, and the level’s over. Total Time So Far: 27:45. Total Studs So Far: 116,250.

Gunship Cavalry: Start off by going through and shooting all of the enemies in the area, so that you won’t have as much trouble with the cable. Remember that lasers are not your friend. Head back to the dispenser once the enemies are gone and use your cable to tow the little bomb to one of the sides of the force field. Go back for another and hit the other side to disable the force field. Repeat the process, beginning with destroying all enemies. Destroy the sides of the next force field with the two little bombs, then head through to the second and final area.
Just keep shooting to get rid of the enemies once again, then seek out the dispenser. Use it to destroy each of the lasers with a bomb, then once a set of two lasers next to each other has been destroyed, shoot the three little blue things that appear. Get them all to end the level. Total Time So Far: 34:50. Total Studs So Far: 159,490.

Count Dooku: Follow Dooku and you’ll be attacked by three droids. Continue following him and he’ll send five Geonosians to attack, shutting the door behind him. Defeat them, then step on the button on the right side and allow the other player to step on the next one. Continue this way until you can reach the top and pull down the levers together to open the door. Drop down and go through the door for your boss battle with Dooku.
Hit Dooku enough times to make him lose three hearts and he’ll start to Force things at you. After Forcing them back, Anakin’s out of the battle an Yoda is in. Make Dooku lose three more hearts and he’ll shock whichever character you’re playing as, temporarily incapacitating them. Switch to the other character and hit him. This will happen three times, after which you can finish him off by hitting him.

Total Time: 37:46. Total Studs: 166,070.

Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Battle Over Coruscant: Remember the controls for up and down in this level are flipped. Keep shooting no matter what, although you won’t need to hit anything until the five red circles. Stay low when flying under the ship, then you won’t have to do much until when you have to shoot two more red circles on a tower. Shoot the next two red circles to open the gate, then two more at the end of the level. If you followed my advice to never stop shooting, this level should have almost earned you your entire goal of 100,000 studs. Total Time So Far: 3:42. Total Studs So Far: 76,250.

Chancellor In Peril: Destroy the droids, then use the Force and head through to the next area. Battle some more droids, then drop down and battle a few more. Force the platforms onto the wall, hop up, destroy a few more droids, then use the Force on the grate on the wall and head through. More droids to battle are here, and you’ll be reunited with R2-D2. Use him to open the door on the far right, then Force the box out and Force it again to drop a ramp to the next area. Head right and use the Force on the wall panel to allow you to get to the upper level. Defeat the Droideka and use R2-D2 on the panel. You’ll battle Dooku after going inside, and during this battle, just remember to switch characters and hit him when he incapacitates you. Head up the stairs and through the doorway and start your race down the hall. Avoid the holes and head through the door. Head down the next hallway, using the Force on the gears if needed, then using R2-D2 on the panel. Carefully maneuver him around the platform and to the next panel to continue. Battle Grievous’s bodyguards and a few more droids, then use the Force on the switches to end the level. Total Time So Far: 11:06. Total Studs So Far: 83,910.

General Grievous: Hit Grievous once and he’ll jump away. Shoot the canisters next to him and he’ll hop back, allowing you to get him down three more hearts. When he jumps away for the second time, Force the pieces to make a bridge and head across. Go up as far as you can, Force the platform, and use Commander Cody to stand on it, jump, and shoot the canister next to Grievous. He’ll jump down again and you can battle him until he’s left with only three hearts. Go back to where you were previously and Force the pieces into some stairs. Climb up, then destroy the brick wall and Force a canister over to Grievous. Shoot it again, hop down, and finish Grievous off. Total Time So Far: 13:20. Total Studs So Far: 85,550.

Defense of Kashyyyk: Use the Force on the generators and head down the path to the clones. Defeat them after a small cutscene, then Force the generators here and begin your rescue of the Wookiees. Start by using Chewbacca to grapple up and across to save the first Wookiee. Follow this Wookiee and head to the right, destroying some junk on the ground to make a grappling point to reach the second one. From here, go straight down the path to the last one, then turn left after saving it and step on the buttons to lower the bridge. Head to the right and go through to the next area. Go to the left and Force the bridge, then Force the plant on the ground for a grapple point. Shoot the two targets to lower the bridge and go through. Defeat the droid commanders on the top ledges of the rocks, then fight through the remaining droids until you are able to head down the path. Fight your way through the enemies until you can Force the plants near the maze with the rocks to make platforms. Hop up, Force any rocks that come too close, then Force the platforms at the end. Step on the buttons and fight through some more enemies. Force the four corners at the end and hit them, then Force the pod out of the ground. Total Time So Far: 23:48. Total Studs So Far: 98,650.

Ruin of the Jedi: Fight through the disguised clones and Force the door to the next area. Fight some more, Force the red pillar into stairs, head up, destroy the clone here, and drop down on the other side. Force away the red objects and then the gears to open the door. Battle your way through some more clones until you reach the end of the hallway. Starting on the left side, Force the platforms until you can reach the switch or the button to deactivate the force field, then the switch, until you are able to exit. Through this door, some more clones will attack. Once you defeat them, Force the disc on the right to end the level. Total Time So Far: 29:16. Total Studs So Far: 103,210.

Darth Vader: Carefully make your way around the holes and lava until you reach the next area. Force some beams for more time, then head to the right and clear the beams from the door. Work with the other character to open it and go to the next area. Clear the buttons and stand on them to drop a platform. Hop across and Force the objects together to raise another platform. Your goal now is to make it to the center without dying in the lava, so head to the left and toward it once you get across the long, straight beams. Once you are on it it will drop, so jump up as it falls to reach the rock before you fall into the lava. The fight with Anakin is extremely easy, and then the level will end.

Total Time: 32:52. Total Studs: 125,220.

Episode IV: A New Hope

Secret Plans: Assemble the pieces in front of you, grab a few studs that are lying around, then head forward. Pull the handles and head to the left. Shoot through the Storm Troopers and head out the door. Grapple up to the top, assemble the pieces, and head through the door on the other side. Another quick battle with some Storm Troopers, then pull the handles on each side of the wall. Shoot the canisters next to Vader and head through the door once he’s gone. Through the next room you’ll fight some more Storm Troopers, then head into another room. Push the boxes onto the red lights and fight through a few more Storm Troopers to get C-3PO, then use him on the panel for R2-D2. Use him on the next panel and head into the next room. Hop on the crane and toss the Storm Troopers into the pit, and your buddy will lower the bridge for you. Stay on the crane and help C-3PO across, then hop off and use him on the panel to the next area. Fight through another set of enemies, continuing forward. Build the bridge for the droids and do the same in the next room to the right. Open the left and front panels with R2-D2 and pull the switch inside, then use C-3PO on the right panel. Go inside with R2-D2 and open the last panel to end the level. Total Time So Far: 7:16. Total Studs So Far: 14,220.

Through the Jundland Wastes: Begin by destroying the boards on the right side to lower the boulder and allow you to the upper level. Fight through enemies until the end of the section, where you must Force the broken piece of ship to make a bridge. Deflect the Tusken Raiders’ bolts with Ben’s lightsaber and assemble the pieces, then push the box to the end to use as a boost. Hop over to the pieces on the ground and head forward. Build the grappling point, Force down the platform, and grapple up, then pull the handle to allow Ben up. Force the next platform and pull the next handle, then head to the roof and pull the two handles. Drop back down and go into the ship. Destroy all the ladders and turn the wheels to open the door, then pull the handle on the right and push the box in front of R2-D2 to free him. Use him on the panel and go inside. Walk across each set of buttons and pull the handles. Go into the next room and kill the Jawas to prevent them from zapping the droids. Use R2-D2 on the panel, push the turnstile, and use him on the panel again to free C-3PO. Use him on the next panel, then Force the poles and head out. Fight through some more Tusken Raiders and use C-3PO on the nearest panel. Build the little bridge and use him on the next panel. Head up the hill, Force the pieces to make a bridge, push the crate, and Force the next pieces while fighting off more enemies. Use C-3PO on another panel and head forward. Assemble the pieces on the speeder, fly across, assemble the pieces to the switch, and pull it. Fight through the Storm Troopers, then stand on the buttons to end the level. Total Time So Far: 20:02. Total Studs So Far: 33,610.

Mos Eisley Spaceport: Head to the end of the area and fight through some Storm Troopers until you are able to Force the stairs into a ramp for C-3PO. Use him on the panel at the top and go through, then fight through some more Storm Troopers. Now, you’re going to want to build an AT-ST. Destroy the garbage cans on the side and build a ramp for C-3PO, then use him on the panel. Destroy the other garbage cans for some pieces to assemble. On the other side, use R2-D2 on the panel and Force out some more pieces. Force the AT-ST together, and, of course, someone else steals it before you. Get him out and use the AT-ST to destroy the barrier ahead. Fight through another set of Storm Troopers with an AT-ST to continue forward. Shoot the beams that hold the droids in place, then step on the buttons and enter the bar. Leave as Han Solo or Chewbacca and assemble the grappling point, then follow the Imperial Spy. Swing across, pull the handle, and push the box over the edge, then push it to the end of the area and shoot it. Keep fighting through enemies, then jump onto a Dewback and use it to launch you over the left side. Follow the Imperial Spy to the final area and fight through two sets of enemies before facing off with him. After defeating him (the best way is to use Ben to confuse him, then hit him four times in a row), finish off the rest of the enemies and head into the Millennium Falcon. Total Time So Far: 31:36. Total Studs So Far: 46,200.

Rescue the Princess: Use the Force on the door, fight through the Storm Troopers, and put on a helmet to activate the Imperial panel. Fight some more enemies and assemble the pieces, then use R2-D2 on the panel. Fight through the next set of enemies and Ben will Force across a bridge for you. Continue through, shooting whatever barriers or enemies as needed and activating Imperial panels. Build the turnstile and push the bridge, then continue through the next areas fighting enemies. Build and activate the Imperial panel, then head forward to the elevator and go inside. Defeat the enemies, assemble the pieces, and pull the switches to open a room with lots of switches. The last one on the right is Leia’s, and you can step on the buttons to free her and end the level. Total Time So Far: 38:09. Total Studs So Far: 59,130.

Death Star Escape: Assemble the pieces and pull the handle, then fight through enemies. Continue through and pull the handle on the wall until it is on the last setting. Drop down and handle the enemies again, then push the platform over to the turnstile. Push the turnstile, then grapple back up and across to the top of the platform. Pull the handle, push the crate off, and ride the sweeper across the five buttons on the ground. Grapple back up and across, then activate the Imperial panel. Defeat some more enemies, assemble the pieces, pull the switches, and push the crate until you reach the next area. Pull the three switches and jump across. Assemble the pieces, grapple up, pull the switch, and head up the elevator. Use the next Imperial panel and head into the next area, then pull the switches. Defeat all enemies needed to build the grappling point and grapple across. Do so again and use the Imperial panel, then head down the hallway continually shooting. This next part is tricky: immediately pull the handles to shut the doors, then get rid of the remaining enemies. Quickly assemble the pieces on the ground and shoot the middle. Head to the right, fighting through enemies, until you can assemble the pieces and push the wall to free C-3PO and R2-D2. Push the blue object and assemble the pieces for a grappling point, then pull the handle. Use R2-D2 to activate the nearest panel, then use him on the panel on the left side to get a sweeper. Ride across the buttons. Pull the handle on the left side and use C-3PO to float up and activate the panel. After destroying all remaining enemies, the door to the Falcon will open, allowing you in. Total Time So Far: 54:54. Total Studs So Far: 88,650.

Rebel Attack: Ship level, so you’ll definitely earn the rest of the studs you need if you haven’t already. As always, my advice is to never stop shooting. You pretty much just have to collect torpedoes and shoot them at the pink targets (four in the first section, eight in the next two). Head through the trench, then destroy the turrets and shoot your final pink torpedo at the center to end the episode.

Total Time: 1:00:18. Total Studs: 145,360.

Achievements Guide

If you’re playing on Xbox 360 as I am, there is a total of 42 achievements to be unlocked throughout the game. Some achievements are unlocked automatically, others you must work to earn. Here is each achievement, in alphabetical order, a description, and if needed, an explanation on how to unlock it. I’ve added an asterisk in front of the ones that are automatically unlocked during a certain point in the game.

Arcade Master: Get 100 points in Arcade Mode. Arcade Mode is two-player only, so you’d best have two controllers ready. Leave the level set to Senate, and set the target to off. Once the battle begins, drop down to the lower level and use your second controller to repeatedly jump off of the side. Once the first character has 100 points, you’ll get this achievement. — 20 G

*Attack of the Clones: Finish Episode II in Story Mode. (This is just for completing the levels for the first time; you don’t have to get all of the Gold Bricks or Canisters or anything like that.) — 20 G

Bar Room Brawl: Start a Cantina fight with 50 casualties. These 50 casualties don’t need to be all in one fight, but they must be in the main area of the Cantina. — 20 G

Cash In: Sell your Landspeeder to the Jawas. This is part of the level Mos Eisley Spaceport (directions to sell the Landspeeder are in the walkthrough). — 20 G

Cloud Cover: Finish Cloud City still wearing a helmet. This one is a lot easier than it sounds, because after completing the level a first time, you can put on a helmet and save immediately. — 20 G

Collector: Unlock all characters. This description is a little misleading, because you have to both unlock and purchase all of the characters in the Cantina. This achievement will not be unlocked until you unlock Indiana Jones as well, who is found after watching the trailer for the Lego Indiana Jones game in the Cantina bonus area, under the door with the camera above it. — 60 G

Crowd Pleaser: Break Jar Jar 20 times. You’ll first find Jar Jar in the level Invasion of Naboo, where you can get this achievement while walking along the paths before the enemies appear. — 20 G

Did I Break Your Concentration?: Revenge: Destroy The Emperor with Mace Windu. (Lego is usually pretty good at coming up with Achievement names, but this is probably my all-time favorite.) These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Disco King: Set off all three discos. Disco locations are below:

  • The first disco is found in the Episode II area; just Force together the disco ball.
  • The second is found in the level Discovery on Kamino. In the fourth area of the level, activate the Imperial panel on the left side of the hallway. Inside, there are buttons on the ground you have to step on with the other character. Once they’ve all been lit up, some Kaminoans will appear and start dancing.
  • The final disco is in the level The Great Pit of Carkoon. It is found in the third area, simply by destroying and building everything you can in the room and stepping on the white floor panels. — 20 G

Dodger: Perform 200 blaster character dodges. If you’re like me and don’t play as blaster characters very often, you might not know about this move. When you’re shooting and being shot at all at once, keep hitting the button to shoot and your character will automatically roll to the side to dodge the bolts from others. This achievement is easiest unlocked in a level with lots of respawning enemies, such as Jedi Battle, especially when going against a Droideka. — 20 G

Droid Slayer: Destroy 300 droids. You can get this while playing through the prequel trilogy episodes. And, once again, I’ll recommend Jedi Battle as a good level to get this achievement. — 20 G

*The Empire Strikes Back: Finish Episode V in Story  Mode. This is just for completing the levels for the first time; you don’t have to get all of the Gold Bricks or Canisters or anything like that. — 20 G

Fighter Ace: Destroy 50 TIE Fighters. Considering all of the flying levels in the game, this shouldn’t be too difficult to get. — 20 G

Fire in the Hole!: Destroy 10 characters with one thermal detonator. Once again, I’m recommending Jedi Battle for this one. Just start the level with a bounty hunter and throw the thermal detonator into the crowd of enemies. — 20 G

Follower of Fashion: Wear every hat. The hats and their locations are below:

  • In the Episode IV area, you’ll find a hat dispenser between Chapters 3 and 4. Here, you can get the Indiana Jones hat, top hat, Princess Leia’s hair, and red cap.
  • You can find a Stormtrooper helmet in the third area of the level Cloud City Trap.
  • The Bounty Hunter helmet is found at the end of the first area of Jabba’s Palace. — 20 G

Going for Gold: Collect all available Gold Bricks. If you walk by the door of the Episodes, it shows you how many Gold Bricks you collected in each one. There are 20 Gold Bricks per Episode, making there 120 to be found throughout all six Episodes. You can also purchase fourteen in the Cantina, collect six by completing Cantina Bonuses, and get twenty more by completing all of the Bounty Hunter missions, for a total of 160 Gold Bricks in the game. — 60 G

Gopher: Max out the stud counter. Unlock, purchase, and turn on the stud magnet, character studs, and all of the multiplier Power Bricks, then just continue to play the game. Once you get all of the Gold Bricks, you can build a nonstop stud dispenser in the area outside of the Cantina. If you stand underneath this for a while with your Stud Magnet and all multipliers turned on, you should eventually get the achievement. The stud counter gets maxed out at 4,000,000,000. — 20 G

Hands Off!: Revenge: Destroy Anakin with Dooku. These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Harmless?: Disable 5 Droidekas with R2-D2. To disable a Droideka, wait until its shield is down and approach it, then press the button you would use to activate an Astromech panel. The Droideka is only temporarily disabled, but this way you can attack it with another character without worrying about it shooting back. — 20 G

Lego Build-Master: Make 100 Build-its throughout the game. Build-its are just the objects lying on the ground that you have to assemble. After playing through the levels and bonus levels, you should get this achievement. — 20 G

Let the Wookiee Win: Pull 25 arms off other characters. When you’re playing as a Wookiee, press B to sheath your weapon. Approach an enemy and press X to rip off their arms. — 20 G

Lightsaber Defender: Perform 200 perfect Lightsaber deflections. This is easiest done with the Perfect Deflect extra turned on, which can be unlocked in the level Jedi Battle. — 20 G

Lightsaber Master: Perform 20 unblockable combo attacks. This type of combo attack involves three swings– instead of repeatedly tapping the button to swing, you must swing once, then swing again at the end of the first swing, then again at the end of the second swing. You’ll know if you’ve performed it correctly by the sparkles that appear out of your Lightsaber. You can try for this achievement against a partner character who won’t fight back, or go for it in the level Jedi Destiny with Invincibility turned on. This way, you’ll be able to use it against both the Emperor and the Imperial Guards. — 20 G

Love Is…: Crossover: Destroy Jango Fett with Boba Fett. These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Mini Mayhem: Collect all Mini-kits. These are unlocked by collecting ten Canisters in each level. Since ten Canisters count as one Minikit, there are 36 Minikits in total. — 60 G

*A New Hope: Finish Episode IV in Story Mode. This is just for completing the levels for the first time; you don’t have to get all of the Gold Bricks or Canisters or anything like that. — 20 G

Nobody Expects…: Revenge: Destroy The Emperor with Kit Fisto. These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Online Player: Play through an entire level online. All you have to do is play a level with someone else through Xbox Live. (If you can’t find someone to play with, just comment or email me your gamertag and I’d be happy to help you out. 🙂 ) — 20 G

*The Phantom Menace: Finish Episode I in Story Mode. This is just for completing the levels for the first time; you don’t have to get all of the Gold Bricks or Canisters or anything like that. — 20 G

*Return of the Jedi: Finish Episode VI in Story Mode. This is just for completing the levels for the first time; you don’t have to get all of the Gold Bricks or Canisters or anything like that. — 20 G

*Revenge of the Sith: Finish Episode III in Story Mode. This is just for completing the levels for the first time; you don’t have to get all of the Gold Bricks or Canisters or anything like that. — 20 G

Secret Master: Collect all available Red Bricks. This is an achievement you’ll actually have to work on by finding each Power Brick in the game. There are 36 in all, one for each level. You can find my Power Brick guide here, and each description links to the walkthrough of the level where you can find that Power Brick. — 60 G

Shoot First: Shoot first. This is another one you’ll need two controllers for, because it’s achieved in Arcade Mode. Put the settings however you like, because you’ll only be in there for a few seconds. Choose a variation of Han Solo with the first controller, and choose Greedo with the second. When the duel starts, all you have to do is shoot Greedo until he dies. — 20 G

Slam Dunk: Destroy 5 people with one attack (Jedi super slam). The Jedi super slam is the jump-jump-attack combo that I often mention. You can use the extra Super Jedi Slam to help you get a larger radius when you hit the ground. It would probably be easiest to do this in a level with a lot of enemies, such as Jedi Battle. — 20 G

Stormtrooper Slayer: Destroy 300 Stormtroopers. You can get this while playing through the episodes of the original trilogy. I recommend playing the level Death Star Escape to help with this achievement. — 20 G

Strike Me Down:  Revenge: Destroy Darth Vader with Obi-Wan. These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Undecided.: Crossover: Destroy Anakin with Vader. These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Unfaithful:  Crossover: Destroy The Emperor with Darth Maul. These achievements are actually a lot easier than they sound. They make you think you have to play an entire level and beat a boss with a certain character, but really all you have to do is go to any level in free play with the two characters they mention, and destroy one with the other. — 10 G

Use the Force Luke: Death Star Trench Run without firing. In the level Rebel Attack, the final area is a trench. During this portion of the level, don’t shoot to get the achievement. You might want to turn on some extras to help you, such as Invincibility. — 20 G

Who Needs Obi-Wan?:  Revenge: Destroy Darth Maul with Qui-Gon. This is the only crossover/revenge achievement that can be unlocked during your first play-through. During the boss fight of the level Darth Maul, use Qui-Gon to attack instead of Obi-Wan. — 10 G

Yee Haw: Ride all mounts types and ride-ons. Make sure to ride all of the vehicles and creatures inside of Lego City and New City, and you’ll already be close to getting the achievement. The one most people miss is the little spider thing in the level Jabba’s Palace, which isn’t found in the bonus levels. — 20 G

100%: Complete the game to 100%. In order to do this, you’ll have to collect all 160 Gold Bricks and 36 Power Bricks, complete all 36 levels in Challenge Mode, buy everything at the Cantina, and complete all 6 Super Stories. Super Stories are found through the bonus door in each Episode room, and they challenge you by giving you one hour to complete the entire Episode (all six levels) and earn 100,000 Studs throughout the six levels. — 100 G

Power Brick Guide

Throughout the game, there are a total of 44 Power Bricks that can be bought in the Cantina. Eight are already unlocked for you (Extra Toggle, Fertilizer, Disguise, Daisy Chains, Chewbacca Carrying C-3PO, Tow Death Star, Silhouettes, Beep Beep), while the others must be found in the game before they can be unlocked and purchased, in a similar way to finding Canisters throughout the game. I know there are a lot of people who have no idea what these Power Bricks are and how to activate them, so I’ve made this guide to help you out as far as that goes.

To activate a Power Brick, you must first purchase it in the main area of the Cantina under the Extras category. From there, go to the start menu and the Extras section. There you’ll be able to view all of the Power Bricks you have unlocked and turn them on. The first, Adaptive Difficulty, should always stay on, since it is what challenges you in the game. The next eight are in blue, which are the ones that were already unlocked but you had to buy. From there, all of them are red. If you’ve unlocked and purchased a Power Brick, it should say the name of it along with the option to turn it on or off. If you’ve unlocked a Power Brick but haven’t purchased it, the name will appear, followed by “Available to buy.” And, finally, if you haven’t unlocked a Power Brick yet, it will just show up as “Power Brick (insert number): Locked.”

Now, what do these Power Bricks do, and how can they help you in the game? Simply put, Power Bricks are either there to help you out or make the game a little more fun. Below is a full list of all of the Power Bricks in the game and what they do. I’ve broken it up into four categories, which you can find below the list. The links on certain Power Bricks lead to the levels in which you can unlock them. The Power Bricks are in order as it shows in your Extras menu:

Adaptive Difficulty: The only Power Brick you don’t have to purchase. All it does is makes the game slightly harder as you gradually move through the levels. My recommendation is to always leave it on, to prevent the game from becoming too easy and to challenge yourself as you play.

Extra Toggle****: Allows you to play as characters you wouldn’t normally be able to play as. You can only use it in Free Play mode, and you can only use certain characters on certain levels. See here for a complete list of characters and levels you can use them on.

Fertilizer*: With this extra turned on, you can make a creature that you’re riding poo.

Disguise*: Gives your character a pair of glasses, a fake nose, and a mustache.

Daisy Chains*: When you’re grappling, the chain that comes out of your blaster will be decorated with a bunch of flowers.

Chewbacca Carrying C-3PO*: When you’re playing as Chewbacca or have him on your team, he will appear with C-3PO on his back (just for decoration– you can’t actually use C-3PO like this).

Tow Death Star*: With ship levels that use bombs, the first example of this being Gunship Cavalry, the bombs will look like a little Death Star instead of the regular bomb design.

Silhouettes*: Causes all characters to appear only as silhouettes.

Beep Beep*: Allows you to beep the horn when riding in a vehicle.

Super Gonk*: Gives the Gonk Droid the ability to run and jump.

Poo Money**: When using this along with the Fertilizer extra, the creature that you’re riding will poo studs.

Walkie Talkie Disable***: Disables the walkie-talkies of enemies who can easily call in for backup (ex. the droids in the level Darth Maul).

Power Brick Detector****: Helps you to find Power Bricks by directing you with an arrow on where to go.

Super Slap***: When slapping a character (aside from bosses), their health will go down two hearts instead of one.

Force Grapple Leap****: Instead of having to switch to a grappling character every time you need to reach something, simply turn on this extra and press the same button you would use to grapple while using a character with the Force. They can jump up to the area you need to reach, saving a lot of time instead of switching between characters.

Stud Magnet**: Exactly how it sounds– if you’re walking near a pile of studs, they will be pulled to you like a magnet. However, this does not work long range. (Tip: Using this extra along with the Character Studs extra can help a lot in battle– especially in levels such as Jedi Battle or just in the Cantina!)

Disarm Troopers***: All Clone and Stormtrooper characters will have their blasters replaced with carrots, preventing them from shooting and allowing for easy disposal.

Character Studs**: After killing an enemy, this extra will award you with studs. (Tip: Using this extra along with the Stud Magnet extra can help a lot in battle– especially in levels such as Jedi Battle or just in the Cantina!)

Perfect Deflect***: When battling a gun-wielding enemy or most droids, instead of having to time it perfectly to deflect their blasts, all blasts will be deflected if you block their attacks.

Exploding Blaster Bolts***: When playing as a character with a blaster, their shots will be similar to a thermal detonator blast.

Force Pull***: Gives you the ability to pull enemies toward you using the Force.

Super Astromech***: Instead of disabling only one droid with an Astromech, all surrounding droids will be disabled as well.

Vehicle Smart Bomb****: When shooting a missile in a ship level, your shots will be more accurate.

Super Jedi Slam***: The “double jump attack” combo that causes you to smash your Lightsaber into the ground will affect a larger area.

Super Thermal Detonators***: Thermal detonator explosions will be much bigger.

Deflect Bolts***: Although it will still cost you health, if you are shot by a blaster, the shot will bounce right off of you.

Dark Side****: Causes all characters with the Force to be able to use the Sith Force as well, and turns all Lightsabers red.

Super Blasters***: Similar to Super Slap, allows you to take two hearts instead of one by shooting with a blaster.

Fast Force****: Just makes your Force much faster.

Super Lightsabers***: Similar to Super Slap and Super Blasters, allows you to take two hearts instead of one by attacking with a Lightsaber.

Tractor Beam***: When playing a ship level, smaller enemies will be pulled toward you like a magnet and destroyed as soon as they touch you, without harming you.

Invincibility***: Makes you invincible.

Score x2**: Every stud you get counts as twice that amount. (Ex. if you collect a blue stud, it’ll be worth 2000 instead of 1000.) (Combining score multipliers will multiply those too– ex. turning on Score x2 and Score x10 will give you a x20 multiplier.)

Self Destruct****: Allows you to cause a droid to explode without costing you any studs.

Fast Build****: Allows you to be much faster in building something, such as the R2-D2 mural in the Episode I entryway.

Score x4**: Every stud you get counts as four times that amount. (Ex. if you collect a blue stud, it’ll be worth 4000 instead of 1000.) (Combining score multipliers will multiply those too– ex. turning on Score x4 and Score x10 will give you a x40 multiplier.)

Regenerate Hearts***: After losing a heart, you can wait a few seconds and it will regenerate.

Minikit Detector****: Similar to Power Brick Detector, will cause an arrow to appear and help you find Minikit Canisters.

Score x6**: Every stud you get counts as six times that amount. (Ex. if you collect a blue stud, it’ll be worth 6000 instead of 1000.) (Combining score multipliers will multiply those too– ex. turning on Score x6 and Score x10 will give you a x60 multiplier.)

Super Zapper***: Gives you the ability to zap Clones and Stormtroopers as well as droids when playing as an Astromech.

Bounty Hunter Rockets***: Allows bounty hunters to use rockets, similar to what Jango Fett shoots at you in Jedi Battle.

Score x8**: Every stud you get counts as eight times that amount. (Ex. if you collect a blue stud, it’ll be worth 8000 instead of 1000.) (Combining score multipliers will multiply those too– ex. turning on Score x8 and Score x10 will give you a x80 multiplier.)

Super Ewok Catapult****: Causes the Ewok catapult to be able to break the silver objects that could previously only be destroyed with a thermal detonator.

Infinite Torpedoes****: In ship levels, you start out with the maximum number of missiles, and they regenerate every few seconds.

Score x10**: Every stud you get counts as ten times that amount. (Ex. if you collect a blue stud, it’ll be worth 10,000 instead of 1000.) (Combining score multipliers will multiply those too– ex. turning on Score x2, Score x4, Score x6, Score x8, and Score x10 will give you a x3840 multiplier.)

*“Just for fun” extras– do nothing more than changing an appearance or trivial ability.
**Stud extras– help improve your stud count.
***Battle extras– help in battle.
****Other useful extras– generally help you in the game.

 

Character Guide

Unlike most of my walkthroughs, I’m starting this one out with a character guide. Why? The characters I described in the Lego Harry Potter games were easy to explain (“Strong Character,” “Dark Wizard,” etc.), whereas the Star Wars characters will be a little more detailed and difficult if you don’t thoroughly know the Star Wars universe. These are the most important and useful characters throughout the game; if any type of character isn’t mentioned, it means it’s not required for you to play as one to complete the game.

Types of Characters

Astromech Droids (or just Astromech), such as R2-D2, are a type of droid that can glide and disable other droids for a short period of time, but lack real weapons. They can also be used to unlock areas with an Astromech lock. (Astromech characters include R2-D2 and R4-P17.)

Bounty Hunters are a type of Grappler that have access to other abilities as well. Bounty Hunters have access to Thermal Detonators, which can destroy silvery-looking objects. They can also gain access to areas with green spots on the ground, and may be able to use a jetpack to fly. Zam Wesell, Jango Fett, Greedo, Boba Fett, Dengar, Bossk, 4-LOM, and IG-88 are the Bounty Hunters in the game.

Grappler Characters are distinguished by their ability to use red targets on the ground to grapple to other areas. Grappler characters usually have a gun as their weapon, but cannot be droids. Examples of grapplers are Queen Amidala and Captain Panaka, who are both unlocked very early in the game (Episode I, Chapter 3).

High Jumpers are exactly how their name sounds: they can jump higher than other characters and therefore reach areas others cannot. These types of characters include Jar Jar Binks, Captain Tarpals, General Grevious, and General Grevious’s bodyguard.

Imperials include Storm Troopers, Clone Troopers, officers, Darth Vader, and the Emperor. They have the ability to grapple and gain access to Imperial areas.

Jedi are the main characters in the game. You shouldn’t worry too much about them; you get them right from the start and will always get one in Free Play. Jedi use lightsabers as their weapon and are able to use the Force on objects that glow virtually any color but red.

Protocol Droids have virtually no abilities, other than to open Protocol Droid panels. Examples of these characters include C-3PO and TC-14. These, like Jedi, are available right from the start.

Sith are basically evil Jedi. They have all of the same powers as Jedi, but Sith can also use the Force on objects that glow red. There are four Sith in the game: Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, and the Emperor.

Short Characters can crawl through vents to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. Any character with the word “Boy” after their name is considered a Short Character, as are Jawas, Ewoks, and Ugnaughts.

Types of Fighters

Cablecrafts are vehicles with a tow cable– used to tow bombs to blow up areas.

TIE Fighters are used to gain access to TIE gates, which cannot otherwise be accessed.
