Being a Jedi, Yoda can use the Force and a lightsaber. However, he walks very slowly, but has a fast hoverchair. To use it, don't equip your lightsaber, and jump. Or you can use a lightsaber, he'll jump around instead of walking. The slightest tap of the control stick while your lightsaber is equipped will make Yoda jump. However, you still have full control of your horizontal movement, though you have very little control over your vertical movement. On the other hand, he moves faster while attacking than other Jedi.
Like the Jedi, Siths use the Force and a lightsaber. However, they can also use the Dark Side of the Force.

The Droideka is a shielded droid that can shoot two lasers at a time, in volleys of four. It normally moves very slowly. It can roll, but must disable its shield in order to do so. This is a major drawback, which is a major advantage when fighting Droidekas. While you roll toward an enemy, it's very easy for the enemy to destroy you.
However, the Droideka is very powerful in Free Play. Roll around to travel quickly. When you run into a n enemy, switch to another character, stop, and switch back for an instant shield. When your shield turns red, switch and switch back quickly for a fresh shield.
 Gonk Droid
The Gonk Droid doesn't have any weapon, can't access special places, and can't jump. The only thing it can do is walk around without being attacked. This can be useful for exploring, however it's hard to travel without jumping, and it's very slow.
It looks like a single Lego block, but with feet. When disabled by astromech droids, it falls over, then after a few seconds somehow gets up.
 Grievous' Bodyguard
Like the name implies, Grievous' Bodyguards are bodyguards for General Grievous. They can jump much higher than other characters, and wield an electrostaves. Wookieepedia has an article about them.
