Hint: Episode IV bonuses:
Complete Episode IV - A New Hope to unlock Darth Vader and the Stormtrooper; the Rebel Trooper for purchase for 1,000 studs, and Princess Leia for purchase for 50,000 studs.
Hint: Superkit model:
Collect each of the pre-positioned studs in every level. Keep collecting them until the Jedi bar is full and flashing to get one superkit piece. After this is done in all levels the Tantive IV superkit model outside will become available.
Note: This will also unlock the "?" door in Dexter's Diner. The "episode" behind the secret door that is opened after collecting all Minikits and the Superkit is in actuality only one level based on the opening scene from Episode IV: A New Hope. The "To Be Continued..." message at the end of the level hints at an upcoming sequel to Lego Star Wars, which would include the remaining episodes (IV, V, and VI).
Hint: Defeating Anakin:
In Episode III you must fight Anakin. Insert a second controller but do not use it. It is easy to defeat him this way but, keep him on the platform.
Press Start on controller two when you fight him. Start to kill Anakin, and when he is on his last life, have the second player drop out. Note: If you defeat the human Anakin you will just start over. The CPU controlled Anakin now only has one life.
Hint: Defeating Darth Maul:
When the battle starts, Darth Maul will lift up the bridge with the Force. He will send out enemy droids to attack you. Destroy the enemy droids by deflecting their blaster bolts back at them. He will then use the Force to send a yellow Lego barrel at you. Use the Force to make the yellow barrel go back to him. Repeat this two more times. The bridge will split into three pieces. Use the Force on the middle piece to put the bridge back together to get across. You will see Darth Maul run away into an open door. Go into the same door that Darth Maul entered. You will see platforms. Go up to the top platform. You will then see a platform one space higher. Go down to the platform that is one space lower. You will see Darth Maul at the other platform. Use the Force to open up the Lego platform and jump to the platorm that Darth Maul was on.. You will need to repeat this. Jump one space higher and you will see a bridge and a slightly open door. Go in it. Darth Maul will jump to a platform that is far away from the platform that you should be standing on. There should be a bridge one space forward from the platform that is one space forward from the platform that you should be standing on. Darth Maul makes the bridge fall. You should see two orange-striped droids (they should appear one at a time). When you can play again, jump over to the platform that is one space forward from the platform that you are standing on. When you are on the next platform, destroy the two orange-striped droids. Then, destroy the rest of the droids. Two droidekas should come on two separate platforms that each have one button on them. Destroy the droidekas, then step on one of the red buttons. Your partner should step on the other one. The bridge should come up. Jump from the bridge to the platform that Darth Maul was on. Next, go into the open door that Darth Maul went into. You should now see a hallway of shields. Lift up one of the switches with the Force. Your partner should lift up the other one. Repeat this until you see Darth Maul. Go into the open door in front of you. You should see a picture of Darth Maul and about twelve hearts. To kill Darth Maul, hit him with nothing but double jump attacks. When he is on a platform he will use the Force to throw objects at you. Use the Force to send them back to him. Repeat this about two or three more times. Darth Maul should come to the ground for the last time. Destroy the rest of his hearts to defeat him.
When you enter the room with the big pit, Darth Maul should be on one side and you on the other. Keep attacking him with the Force until he dies.
When facing Darth Maul do a double jump. When in the air press Square to take him down easier.
Hint: Defeating Droids and Troopers:
To kill enemies such as Droids and Troopers, press Circle to use Force Push when they are near a ledge. It will just push them off the side and kill them easily. This works best in Episode 1, Darth Maul, where there are droids that are easy to push off the ledges.
Hint: Defeating Droidekas:
Double jump them with X while in the air to take down its shield.
Double jump near the shield, then press Square before you land.
Hint: Defeating Jango Fett:
In the level "Jedi Battle" in Episode II, play until you reach the end where you must defeat Jango Fett. Lure him near one of the mines set up on the field and step near it so that it charges up. Back away in an opposite direction than Fett to draw him over the mine. If done correctly, the exploding mine will take away all his hearts and destroy him instantly, saving you from several minutes of fighting.
Hint: Defeating Bosses:
To kill a Boss or any enemy, use a Jedi or Sith. Press Jump, then attack. This results in easy kills. To kill enemies such as Jango Fett, switch to someone with a blaster and just shoot him.
Hint: Saber moves:
Instead of rapidly tapping Square to attack with random combos, you can execute more powerful moves by pressing Square in a well-timed pattern. Press Square once, then again immediately afterwards, but not before the first strike lands. Your Jedi will perform a more powerful force move on the second strike. It will make a special sound when performed correctly, and little sparks from the Force will appear from your lightsaber. Most Jedi or Sith will perform another Force slash if you press Square again after the first one finishes. Remember, you must press Square at the correct moment after each move, but do not press it before the move ends or you will perform the normal combos. For easier execution in combat, just press Square in a steady pattern, lining up one strike after the other.
Hint: End of Episode 2:
At the end of Attack Of The Clones (Episode 2), go behind Obi-Wan and use Force on him.
Hint: Hidden Lego canisters:
Listen for a jingle sound. If you hear these sounds, they indicate that there is a canister somewhere near. Look around and if you can reach the canister, grab it. You may need to grab it through Free Play.
Hint: Keep health high:
In whatever episode and chapter you are playing, copy the type of your current opponent. For example, if there are hordes of disguised clones ready to shoot you, switch to disguised clone and they will not attack, giving you time to shoot them. Note: They will probably follow you, especially if you are a battle droid. Note: Note this does not work on Bosses, Sith, General Grevious etc.
Hint: Blue stud treasure:
Unlock the hidden level "Episode IV: A New Hope" and play until you reach the first split in the path. Battle through the rebel guards down the right hallway and enter the door. There you should find a group of yellow, blue, green, and red blocks laying scattered on the floor. Using a Jedi or Sith, utilize the Force so that you build an "L" with the yellow blocks, an "E" with the blue blocks, a "G" with the green blocks, and an "O" with the red blocks. If done correctly, at least a dozen blue studs (worth 1,000 each) will fall from the ceiling. Collect as many as you can before they fade away.
Hint: Easy studs:
After each level, do not continue. Instead, leave the diner and break all "trash cans" by the doors outside. You can get a good few thousand if you are lucky.
In the Discovery On Kamino level, if you encounter the broom where you had R4 to open the gate, use the Force on it. Money will come out. If you follow it around the entire room, money will still appear. This is useful when trying to get perfect studs.
When fighting General Grievous in free play mode, go as far right on the cliff as possible. Go on the bridge then into the dome on the right. Destroy all the bombs and use the Force on the levers to get a minikit.
Enable the "Invincibility" code so you do not die and lose your studs. Replay a chapter as how many times desired and try to find studs.
Go to Dexter's Diner and the places where you can enter the levels. Use The Force on the salt and pepper shakers to get about 1,000 studs each time.
After any level, go to Dexter's Diner instead of continuing the levels. There are three tables in Dexter's Diner, but only two have salt and pepper shakers on them. In each one there are about 800 studs. You cannot destroy them with a lightsaber or by shooting them. You must use The Force to destroy them. After you destroy them, you can also go in Episode I, Episode II, and Episode III to get them. There are two salt and pepper shakers in Episode I and II, and four in Episode III.
Enable the "Invincibility" code, then play the Darth Vader level in Episode III. At the very beginning at the lava that you must jump over, go to the third hole and wait. A number of studs will pop out, including two blue ones. You may need to jump into the lava, but you will not lose any studs because of the invincibility. Die if you have not already (same case) then repeat as many times as desired.
Use the Force on the salt and pepper shakers. They are on the tables at the diner. To make better use of this, do not select "Continue Story" after you play an episode. Instead, go to the diner and get the studs from these shakers.
Hint: Characters fighting:
After unlocking a lot of characters, go outside of the diner and to the hangar. Most of the time, the good characters will attack the bad characters that spawn there. Because there are more good characters than bad, sometimes you can see Darth Maul getting hammered by a lot of opponents.
Hint: Lightsaber fighting:
Try alternating or simultaneously pressing Attack, Jump, and the Left Analog-stick as any Jedi or Sith with a lightsaber to execute various maneuvers and different three-hit combos.
Hint: Confront jump:
Press Square, X to do the confront jump. Note: This can only be done with Jedi or Sith characters.
Hint: Disco on Kamino:
Once you get to the section where Jango is behind a force field and there are two guns at the top. Go in the door at the left. You will see some circles on the ground. Step on one of the white ones and your partner (whether CPU or human) will step on the other. Once you are done with all of them, a dance mix of the Star Wars themes will start playing. The Kamino aliens will start dancing. Once you leave the room, you will have to repeat it.
Hint: Cantina Music in Dexter's Diner:
In Dexter's Diner, go through the Episode 1 door. To the left you will see something that looks similar to a jukebox. Use The Force on it and it will play the cantina music for fifteen seconds. You will have to keep repeating this if you want to play the music again.
Hint: Moving as Yoda:
Whenever you are Yoda , you will notice that he is slow moving without his lightsaber. Press Jump and he will get out a hover chair. This is easier when traveling, as you will not have to watch him jump like crazy or move slow with the stick.
Hint: Moving through the vents and chutes:
Young Anakin is not the only character that can go through the vents and chutes in levels. Boba Fett can also slip through the vents as well. To do this with either character, face the vent up close and press Circle.
Hint: Skipping the first part on Darth Maul's level:
When Darth Maul lifts up the bridge in the first part of the level, use your highest jumper and jump on the bridge. Walk across the bridge and jump off. You will save a minute or two. You might have to destroy the droids.
Hint: Extra time in exploding room on Darth Vader's level:
Use the following trick to get extra time in the room that is going to explode in the Darth Vader level. Use the Force on the broken beams. This could save you about a minute and a half to get money and open the door.
Hint: Invincible waiter droid:
Go to Dexter's Diner (main room).There will be a droid who carries a plate. You can attack it with anything and it will not die.
Hint: Battle Droids follow you:
When playing in freeplay mode on any level with Battle Droids shooting at you, press R2 to switch characters to a Battle Droid like them. They will not shoot you until you switch to another character.
Hint: Hard to reach minikit canisters:
Some minikit canisters are in areas that even a character with a very high jump cannot reach. To get these, use General Grievous in free play mode.
In Defense of Kashyyyk, go to the huge tree with several platforms on it. Use a grappling hook character to climb the left side of the tree (your left). Eventually you will find a platform that seems impossible to reach. Switch to General Grievous, double jump toward the platform, and press Square to do the helicopter move. Just before you start to spiral downwards, press R1 or L1 to switch to another character, while still holding the Analog-stick in the direction of the platform. You should land on it. then, switch back Grievous and double jump through the rest until you reach the minikit.
In Retake Theed Palace, play through until you get to the part where you rescue the guards so that you can get out. Walk all the way to the right side of the room. Use Grievous to double jump onto the platform. Double jump again and you should reach an unjumpable wall. Keep a slight distance from the wall so you do not hit the edge on the top. Use the same Copter trick from before. Press R1 or L1 to switch to another character, again while holding the Analog-stick in the direction of the wall. You should reach the top and get the minikit.
When you get all ten Minikits in a level, you will get 50,000 studs. Some are found in the following locations.
Discovery On Kamino
Behind the Star Fighter. You need a high jumper.
In front of Star Fighter. Use R5 to hover over.
Hallway after you see Clones. Activate all switches.
Different hallway. Use C3PO to activate the panel. Get to the buttons, blast the target., then go into holes.
The same room on the far right.
Jango Fett's room. Finish the Jango Fett Poster.
The room Jango Fett goes into. Step on the right switches.
Mine bridge. Grapple and use C3PO to activate the panel. Hit all targets.
Hallway after the bridge: Use Dark Force on the table. Use Dark Force in the room.

Glitch: Episode I: Chapter 6: Darth Maul:
At the beginning of the level in free play mode as Jar Jar Binks, you can jump up to the floating broken bridge, thus ending the shooting by the Battle Droids, and automatically depleting Darth Maul's health, and lowering the bridge to be put together.

After you get past the swampy part and walk up a short distance, there is a little cove. Enter the cove and when the clones and battle droids come running, they will disappear and fall out of the trees.
Glitch: Jumping with characters that do not jump:
First, play as a jumping character or someone that can jump. While you are in the air, switch to an character that normally cannot jump (for example, C3-PO) and you will be in the air. Note: This only works in free play mode, or if you are really skilled in story mode.
Go to Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Chapter 4 Defense of Kashyyk. It is spelled "Defense of kyshyyyk".
Glitch: Slow motion bricks:
When using the Force to build a large object, release and press the button repeatedly, but do not let it completely build or fall apart. Make sure it remains in the air. Do this several times then complete the object. If done correctly, at least one brick should have stopped or will move slowly toward the object.
Glitch: Obi-Wan's lightsaber color:
After you complete the "Jedi Battle" level, you will see a short intermission sequence. In the clip, Obi-Wan has a green lightsaber instead of his regular blue one. Note: The clip will only be shown after the first time you complete the level.
Glitch: Yoda's disappearing chair:
Play as Yoda and go outside of Dexter's Diner. Break one of the vents with Force and have Yoda get into his chair (X). Then, hover over the vent. You will see his chair disappear then come back. It will keep doing that until you get off.
Glitch: Yoda with a lightsaber on hover chair:
When you are Yoda, go to the seats with the tables by Dexter's Diner. Take your lightsaber out and stand on the seat, You should be on a hover chair with your lightsaber.

Hint: "Death Star Escape" level:
In Episode IV: A New Hope "Death Star Escape", after you chase a Stormtrooper down the hallway, you will be bombarded with a large number of Stormtroopers. In Free Play mode, use a bounty hunter to throw a Thermal Detonator. When it hits the ground, set it off. It should wipe out a good majority of the Stormtroopers.
Hint: "Secret Plans" level:
In Free mode when you reach the part where you have to pull the levers to place the bombs next to Darth Vader, after you place the bombs use a Bounty Hunter to throw a Thermal Detonator. When it reaches the bombs, set off the Detonator. It should set off the bombs with one shot.
Hint: Characters from the original Lego Star Wars:
Have a saved game file (any or all characters unlocked) from the original Lego Star Wars on your memory card. Load the game, go to the shop, and buy the "Use Old Save" in the Extras section for 250,000 studs. Then, pause game play, go to the "Extras" menu and turn on "Use Old Save". Then, replay any level in Free Play mode. All the characters from Lego Star Wars (and the unlocked ones from Lego Star Wars 2) will be available. and you can use them to play in Free Play mode. This very helpful in order to collect all the Lego canisters.
Hint: Play as Santa Claus:
Enter the CL4U5H and TYH319 at the Mos Eisley cantina. Select the "Character Customizer" option, then choose a human head, the Santa hat, white beard, and red clothes. After choosing a red or green lightsaber, enter the "Extras" menu and activate "Disguise 3" for the glasses.
Hint: Play as hooded Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars: Episode 3 in Free Play mode:
Start the game, then go to the two test tubes in the corner. Customize the first or second tube, then use these specific parts in order: black hood, Luke's head without the hair, black Jedi body, black arms, black or white hands, black legs, black belt, black cape, and red or blue blade lightsaber.
Hint: Gamorremean guard air guitar:
When playing as the Gamorrenean guard, hold Circle to see him using his axe as a guitar.
Hint: Easy studs:
Play Chapter 1 of Episode IV: A New Hope. Destroy all of the little panels that a Force user can open. You can also go through the Bounty Hunter or Stormtrooper doors and use the Force on all of the little panels on the wall. Another way is to go through the door that can only be opened with a Sith (for example, as Darth Vader). Then, use the 2x Score Multiplier to your advantage.
Play as a Bounty Hunter (Boba Fett, 4-LOM, Greedo, etc.) at the Mos Eisley Cantina. Enter any mission. Character bonuses are recommended. Immediately when the mission loads, pause game play and return to the cantina. Once there, go to the outskirts of the cantina and destroy every trash can, ship piece, and platinum object you see with your bounty hunter's blaster and/or thermal detonators. Collect every stud possible. After you have destroyed everything, you can repeat the process as many times as desired. This is a quick and easy way to get at least 20,000 to 30,000 studs each time.
Go to the Mos Eisley Spaceport in Episode IV: A New Hope. Walk up the stairs on the right. keep killing yourself. When you collect the studs you will get twice as much back.
Collect a fair amount of studs. Go to a special area where the studs you collect are x2 (for example, Episode IV Chapter 3 in the cinema). When you get there, turn off all of your "Extras". Drop in you second player (if not already on) and attack the player with all of the studs. On the fourth hit, the player will die and release studs. At this point pause game play. Turn on any stud multipliers you have in the "Extras" menu. Resume the game, then collect the studs dropped by the killed player. They will compound with the x2 of the area. For example, studs x2 (from the area) x2 (from "Extras" menu) x4 (from "Extras" menu) for a total of x16. Turn off the "Extras" and repeat as desired.
Go to a chapter that you have already completed. Do it again in Free Play mode The Secret Plans (Episode IV, Chapter 1) with Darth Maul as your main character is recommended, because he can open doors that Ben Kenobi cannot. This allows you to access areas full of wealth, minikits, etc. If you scour this stage from top to bottom you can get over 130,000 studs. Repeat this as desired. Note: Destroying containers of any sort and opening drawers using the Force will dramatically add to your stud count.
Go to Chapter 3 of Episode IV on Free Play mode. Make sure you have a Sith character and break everything.
When you go outside, get a bounty hunter and blow up everything. You will get 30,000 studs each time. Continue doing this as many times as desired.
Note: There is limit of 4 billion studs. You can still play through the levels and collect studs, but the total will still remain the same.
Hint: Staying alive in a firefight:
If you are vastly outnumbered with Stormtroopers blasting left, right and center and you have R2-D2 in your party, use the following trick. First, make R2 your active character. Enemies will never shoot at a droid. Then, push the Stormtroopers closer to your friends then zap them with R2's electric prod type weapon. They will promptly stop shooting and rub their sore spot. Quickly switch to a member which has a piece that can do damage (for example, Han Solo or Luke Skywalker). Shoot the Stormtrooper while he is nursing his laser burn. After he is killed, make R2 your active character and repeat the process until you are victorious.
Hint: Defeating the Rancor at Jabba's palace:
Use R2-D2 on the pad under the pipe to let a pig guard out. The Rancor will grab it and sit in an alcove next to a bomb. Blow up the bomb to hurt it Do this one more time then let another guard out. The Rancor will take his new snack into his cage. Use R2-D2 to close the gate.
Hint: Defeating Bosses:
This trick requires R2-D2 and self destruct. When you must battle a Boss (for example, Darth Vader, Darth Sidious, etc.), change yourself and your second character to R2-D2. Walk right up to them. Next, press Circle to self destruct. It will take away a heart. Do this as many times as desired.
Hint: Bounty Hunter locations:
R2D2 (Mission 1): Enter the Bounty Hunter area. Keep going forward, then stop when you get to a wall. Enter both holes at the side of the wall. Legos will fly out. Build it into a doorway. Inside is R2D2.
Obi-Wan (Mission 2): 4-lom can open any door. Take him to the lift where the R2D2 control panel is located. Open it and go up the lift. Pull the levers after walking on the foot marks and enter the next room. Use the control panel again and go through to the last room. Obi-Wan is on the right. Smash through the boxes and he will be standing in the small doorway.
Admiral Ackbar: IG-88 can open any door. Go to the panel to the left and open the door. Then, use your thermal detonators to blow up the wall of junk. Next, build the thing next to the chamber. Ackbar should be inside.
Hint: Extra lightsaber damage and moves:
When using a character that uses a lightsaber, practice this trick for extra damage and nice animations. Press Square to attack, but do not immediately press it again. Wait until the slash/attack stops, then quickly press Square as soon as it stops. If done correctly, the next slash/attack will feature a "sparkle" effect on the lightsaber blade. Do the same thing for a nice finishing attack. Also, immediately after the first or second slash/attack, press Jump for a special jump that puts you behind your target. Press Square while in the air for a small area of effect attack.
Hint: Flirting Leia:
Play as slave Leia and hold Circle. She will start dancing and will wink at you.
Glitch: Cloning a character:
Go to the Jabba's Palace level. Reach the part where you get the power brick and be a Dark Jedi. Then, use the Force on the floor. Get on a spider and go down the hole. It may take a few attempts, but eventually you will be the spider. Change to any character and jump. You should have made a clone of the character you jumped with.
Glitch: Get inside door:
While outside the cantina, switch to a Jedi. Go to a door. Double jump through the door. Instead of going inside the cantina you will be inside the door.
Glitch: Floating character:
On level 4 chapter 5, go to the end. Make the motorbike then put it in the washing machine. Use R2-D2 to press the switch then quickly turn into a jumping character. Jump onto the box. After the box explodes you should be floating.
Glitch: Mid-air running:
Create the "Santa" character by entering CL4U5H as a password to get Santa hat and clothes, then TYH319 as a password to get the glasses and beard disguise. Equip him with the red light lightsaber. Go to Episode 5 Chapter 6 and use the Force on one of the running people. It will still make the choking sound and lift him in the air, but he will still be running.
Glitch: Sliding skeletons:
Accumulate 30,000 studs and purchase the "Extra Toggle" extra in the cantina. Then, turn it on in the Extras menu. In some levels you will be able to switch to a skeleton (Free Play mode), among other things. In one of these, play as the skeleton and get on something like an animal, turret or car, then jump off. You should be sliding around without using your legs.
