The final installment in the series the redefined the Lego brand is now here, bringing with it a whole new set of building puzzles, aerial combat sequences, and bloodless dismemberment. The game is presented with three separate story arcs: Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress, and General Grievous.
All of the stories are independent of one another, but you have to complete all of them to reach the final level, and once you've played through each round you can go back through and play it with any character from any of the three stories.
As with all the Lego titles, there are some head-scratching moments throughout Star Wars Episode III, and this guide will help walk you through the three basic story modes.
This is only the beginning, as there are several reasons to go back through each level with different characters to collect hidden items and head toward the always coveted 100% completion. Before you do that, though, you have to get through the game. So here we go...
When you start the game, you'll be thrown into the first level, Genosian Arena. Much of this level is accompanied by instructional text to guide you through everything you need to do. You'll learn how to use the Force, perform light saber attacks, and switch between characters in the same screen.
You start off chained to a pillar. Once you free yourself, use the Force to turn the pillar into a staircase. Climb the staircase and then use the Force again to destory the object on top of the pillar next to you.
Now switch to Padme. Use her Force to climb up her pillar, and then free Anakin, the sole remaining chained character.
Now the action begins. Controlling Amidala, use the Force button to grab onto the Reek when it lights up blue. Immediately switch to Obi-Wan and use his Force. Now you'll be able to hop onto the Reek. An arrow will guide you to the Nexu which you must defeat by ramming it four times.
Next up is the huge Acklay. You can take out its legs with your light saber. Then, use Padme to throw her chains around it, and switch to another character to stand on the blue icon on the ground. From here, press the button displayed. Do this back-and-forth with Padme and your Jedi character until the Acklay is defeated.
Like clockwork, another enemy appears right away - Jango Fett. To take him out, throw your light saber at him by pressing and holding the attack button. That'll knock him to the ground, allowing you to hit him face-to-face. Lather, rinse, repeat.
The final step to get through this introductory level is to open the three spaceships that just landed. Go to each of them and use to Force. Once the characters leave each ship, use the Force again to close them.
