 Chapter 1: Negotiations
Characters unlocked: TC-14
The level begins with a cutscene of a space ship landing in a space station. (among many) Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi get out. Suddenly, their ship is attacked.
You start out in a room. Jump onto the table and collect the studs. Then attack the objects in the corner for more money. Optionally, use the Force on the chairs to make them dance.
Once you're done messing around, use the Force on the door to break it. A group of security battle droids will appear, and you'll hear a robotic voice saying, "Intruder alert! Intruder alert!" They'll shoot you with lasers, you can block them by pressing B right before they hit you. Kill them with your lightsaber. Don't worry too much about blocking their shots, attacking also blocks. (however, it doesn't reflect their shots back at them, it only parries them) If you do get hurt, though, use the Force on pretty much everything around you for hearts. Even if you didn't, you may want to, anyway, to get money.
Then go down the corridor and hit all the switches with the Force for a minikit piece. Go down the next one and kill the squad of battle droids and hit all those for another minikit piece. Switch with TC-14 (he's friendly) and use his ability to open the door. Hit the switches with the Force for more studs if you want, then open the next door. Break the objects in the corner for more money, then use the Force to open the door to the next room. Several more security battle droids will appear, kill them all, then jump on top of the box made from the door. Jump straight up for another minikit piece. Then proceed.
This room is very simple: Kill droids, get money, continue. So kill the droids, get the money, and go to the right. More droids! Whee. Also, a short cutscene will ensue, showing two Droidekas rolling in to try to kill you. These enemies are trickier - they shoot more lasers, and have shields. They move very slowly, though, unless they roll - which removes the shield. There's nothing you can do to get them to roll, though, so just attack them and block their blasts until their shields wear down. Then a few attacks will kill them easily.
Once you're done killing the Droidekas, use the Force on the two objects to the right and left of the force field. They'll turn into platforms, allowing you to get to the other side, and hit the switches. One last squad of battle droids appears. Wipe them out, then hit the switch and enter the ship.
A cutscene ensues, showing Obi-Wan sneaking in the ship, and Qui-Gon sighing at him.
Congratulations! You just beat the first chapter and unlocked Episode II and III!
 Free Play
It's the first level in the game, yet has a very difficult superkit piece. In order to get it, you have to get almost every stud in the level. Enter every single extra room, regardless of whether or not you need the minikit pieces. Use the Force on anything and everything, and destroy everything and every single droid. With any luck, you'll get enough studs by the time you reach the end.
 Chapter 2: Invasion of Naboo
Characters unlocked: Jar Jar Binks
The chapter begins with a short cutscene showing Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon jump off of an MTT. (multi-troop transport)
From the start, go forward, following the studs. Wield your ligthsaber, as enemies will attack you. Once you arrive at a fallen tree, use the Force to move it out of your way. You'll be greeted with more battle droids. Then, you'll see another MTT. Use the Force on it three times to make it explode, (but don't get too close or you'll be burned) and continue forward.
A cutscene will ensue, showing Jar Jar Binks sniffing a flower and almost getting run over by an MTT. Qui-Gon will save him, and then lead him to another area. Go up the stairs to yet another area. Then go to the right until you reach a gap. Use the Force on the Lego pieces on the wall to make a bridge, and go across, where a battle droid is waiting for you. Kill it, then switch with Jar Jar to reach the high platform. It will fall down, letting the two Jedi reach it. Switch with one of them and use the Force on the switch in the wall to make a platform appear. Jump onto it and from there, the next platform. Then, use the Force on the small Lego structure in the wall for money. Switch with Jar Jar to reach the next platform. Hidden behind the next is a battle droid - you may want to switch with one of the Jedi and use the Force on it before jumping onto the platform. Then, there will be two more battle droids. Kill them and use the Force on the structure above you. Switch with Jar Jar to jump to where it was and collect a minikit piece, then use the bridge made by the pieces of the structure to go up. Kill the two droids and go through the door.
Go to the right, then use the Force on the Lego structure. Go down to the platform it made for a minikit piece. Then go back up and across the fallen piece of wood. You'll encounter more battle droids. Kill them and proceed to the right. You'll meet three more battle droids, kill them and use the Force on the Lego pieces in the alcove. Get the minikit piece, then go to the right, by the vertical line of studs. Using Jar Jar, jump up the platform by them (and collect the money), and go to the right along the path, until you get to a platform. It'll fall, letting you reach the door behind it. Switch with one of the Jedi for this, there'll be a fight. Go in the water.
A cutscene will follow, showing the three of you going in the water. After a little "persuasion," the Gungans let you borrow a bongo.

Use the Force on all the flowers for studs. Don't kill anything if it doesn't attack you - they only give hearts.
 Chapter 3: Escape from Naboo
Characters unlocked: Queen Amidala, Captain Panaka
A cutscene will show you arriving, and rescuing Queen Amidala from battle droids. Qui-Gon kills all the droids before Obi-Wan even gets his lightsaber to work.
Then, the level begins, with you as Queen Amidala, and the computer as Captain Panaka. Start off by shooting all the droids. Don't worry too much about aim, it'll hit the enemy if you're aiming close enough. Vertical aim doesn't matter, as long as you're facing the enemy. Once you've wiped them all out, go forward to the red circle and press X to grapple up to the platform. Kill the droids there, then go to the right and grapple up. Collect money if you want. Keep going, grapple up, and kill the droids. Grapple up again, and kill the droids there. You may also want to destroy everything else afterward, as you can get a lot of money (and hearts) from them. Then proceed through the arch.
Go backward a little for an easy minikit piece and some money. Then go forward, killing the droids (sniping them is easy and prevents you from taking damage. You can't block with a blaster.) Then go through the door. Go to the right and collect the money. Blast a window and kill the droids. Go to the right, stand on the railing, and shoot the target. Go through the now-open door.
Go to the left, shoot the structure, and go down. More droids... but Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are there! That might make fighting easier. After, go to the path behind the pillars, and grapple up. Go down the stairs and to the left, across the gap, and to the minikit piece guarded by two droids. Then go back and go to the right. Kill the droids, then destroy the objects on the platforms. Using Amidala or Panaka, jump on the platforms and shoot the targets. The gate should open.
Go through it, then go to the right and kill the droids. Jump on the dome-shaped structures and hit all the switches. Destroy the revealed objects on the right - you'll get a minikit piece and finish the level.
A cutscene will ensue, showing you landing on a group of droids, then leaving in a spaceship.
 Free Play
In this level, you'll have to destroy almost everything in the level to get a superkit piece. Shoot all the fences, kill all the enemies, and destroy everything else. You can use the Force on the potted trees for studs, then destroy them with a lightsaber for more. You'll need a grand total of 60,000 studs for the superkit piece.
 Chapter 4: Mos Espa Podrace
Characters unlocked: None
This is a simple race. Or so it might seem. Actually, each lap gets increasingly difficult, from boulders crashing and lasers shooting to land mines. It starts with a cutscene, showing the ship breaking down. Obi-Wan (or Qui-Gon?) goes to a store to buy a working part for the ship, but it's too expensive. However, there just so happens to be a race with enough prize money to buy the part - so Anakin decides to race.
You start off at the start line in your podracer. The countdown starts. 3... 2... 1... GO! Anyway, hold A for the entire race. Or almost the entire race. You'll rarely (or never) need to brake or slow down. At the start, then right, then left. Hit the green panels on the floor for a speed boost, and hit the poles for studs. Head to the left and hit the dash panels, (term from Mario Kart) maneuvering around obstacles and following the dash panels. Then, you come to a cliff. Don't worry, the fall won't kill you. But the holes will. Go to the right and hit the dash panel, then turn to the right to avoid the next hole. Then, there's a right turn. Hit the fence for the upper path so that you can get a speed boost from the dash panel and a minikit piece, and then turn left. When you get close to the mouth of the cave, start turning to the right and when you get in it, turn to the left. The purple things on the ground give you money. Try to get the minikit piece, too. Anyway, keep going left, then turn right and head through the gate. Notice the countdown - there are three checkpoints per lap, and if you don't get to each one on time, you have to start over from the last checkpoint.
In this part of the race, you'll be shot at with lasers. But don't worry, they're easy to dodge. Just remember that they only hit the ground in one place - you can go under or away from them easily. Avoid them (it's all right if you get hit, you'll get hearts soon enough) and aim for the dash panels and the minikit piece. When you get to the end, hit the dash panel and go to the left to avoid the wall. Hit the poles for money and hearts, and hit the dash panels. Dodge the walls (easy enough), get the minikit piece, then turn and hit the next dash panel. From here on, it's just simple turning right and left.
Second checkpoint. This part is easy, for this lap anyway. Aim for the dash panels and the poles. You should get to the finish easily. Also try to get the two minikit pieces.
Next lap! Again, then right, then left. Hit the dash panels and the poles. This is where it changes. A cutscene shows Selbulba hitting another racer with his podracer into a boulder, which knocks it over. If you're fast enough, you can go right under it and get a minikit piece, before it falls and blocks your path. Then, take the same route for the holes - right, dash panel, left - and take the upper parth again. No fence this time - you already hit it. Then just turn right into the cave. Right, left, right, past the first checkpoint.
This part is different - there are lasers and boulders trying to kill you. It should still be pretty easy, just maneuver around the boulders and lasers. After you've gotten through te boulders, go to the dash panel on the left for a speed boost. Then do the same as last time. Hit the dash panel, turn left to avoid getting hit by the wall, hit the dash panels, then turn right and left.
Almost there... again, just aim for the dash panels. Watch out for the mines, though. There are more this lap.
Last lap! You should know this part by now - right, left, dash panels. However, the next part is slightly different. Go to the right, not the left. Then just go around everything and hit the dash panels. Avoid the holes like usual, and take the upper path for the dash panels. Go into the cave - right, left, right.
First checkpoint. This part can be tricky, but not too hard. From the start, go to the dash panel in between the rocks. Then turn left or right hard, because there's a rock only a few feet in front of you. Then just go for the dash panels and not the lasers. Again, at the double dash panel turn left, (or right if you want the minikit piece) then go for all the dash panels and navigate the last two turns - right, left.
The final stretch! It starts off with a short cutscene showing Selbulba and Anakin racing. But don't relax to watch, you'll have to race again in a second. Turn right, right, left, right and go for the gold!
Finally, a cutscene shows Anakin winning the prize money (somehow, he has it with him before even getting out), and then everyone flying away in the newly repaired ship.

There is no Free Play mode in this level, nor in any other level without the conventional controls. For studs, aim for all the poles, as well as the purple things (?) in the cave.
 Chapter 5: Retake Theed Palace
Characters unlocked: R2-D2, Anakin Skywalker (boy), Padmé.
After the opening crawl, you'll see a cutscene with your party arriving at Naboo and a short introduction to a battle. Then, you appear at the Royal Palace.
Start off by going through the archway to the right. Kill all the droids. A good strategy is to kill the Droidekas first, then stand in one place and reflect all the shots. Then use the Force on the Lego pieces to make a ramp. Using R2-D2, open the door. Walk through it.
Go to the right. You'll see a gap. Use the Force to lift up the fallen hook, allowing Padmé and Panaka across. Then, use the Force to get rid of the Lego pieces blocking the vent, which will allow Anakin to get across. Finally, use the Force on the Lego pieces in the gap to let the two Jedi across. R2-D2 can hover. Go through the arch. You'll be attacked by a small group of droids. Try to take out the Droidekas while they roll toward you, as they can't shield while rolling. Then deal with the rest. Once you're done, step on a switch. The rest will follow suit. You'll open a door, and five battle droids will come through. Kill them and continue through the corridor, just to be attacked by five more. Kill them and continue. Now you come to an intersection - just go forward. Use R2-D2 to open the door.
Walk up the stairs. You'll immediately be attacked by a small squad of battle droids. Kill them and move on. More droids. Kill them all, then go forward and to the right. Fix the stairs to let yourself up. Then use the Force to fix the bridge. R2 has to take the elevator. As you walk to the left, you'll be attacked again. Afterward, use the Force on the blocks on the other side of the gap to get rid of them. They'll block your way later.
Now here's a puzzler. How do you open the door? Anakin's the only one who can go through the vent to get to the switch, but he can't get across. Only astromech droids can hover. The solution is simple. Hit the plants next to it to open a gate to a vent. Use Anakin to go through the vent. Then walk to the right to the vent. Hit the switch. Now go back and go through the door. Go to the right. You'll be attacked twice. Then go more to the right. Jump off the edge and go to the left for a minikit piece. Go back up using the elevator. Use the Force on the Lego pieces to fix the other elevator. If you go up, you'll see a set of switches. The goal is simple - get all the characters up there. R2-D2 is probably already going up as you read this. (elevator + hover) Go back to the left. Open the vent with the Force to give Anakin a route. Just to your left will be flowers. Destroy them. A red circle will appear. This will let the blaster characters up. Finally, use one of the Jedi. Hop on one of the two blocks in the back and let the other Jedi hop on the other. If both of you use the Force, you can go up. So do that. Go onto the platform and use the Force on the Lego piece in the wall to make a bridge. (but you still have to jump) Walk to the area with the switches and choose one. Step on it, and the computer will follow suit. Go through the door.
First, wipe out the droids. (two sets) Then go up the stairs. Kill the Droideka, then smash the statue. (you may have noticed there are three. I mean the center one.) Walk through the path.
When you get to the end, a short cutscene will show that it's a simple multi-rescue mission. Go to the left. Make stairs with the Lego pieces (biggest on the bottom) and climb up. Use the Force on the Lego pieces to make a platform. Go up. Follow the platform, then drop down onto the one below. Kill the security droid to free one prisoner. Go more to the left and make another staircase. Free another prisoner. Then go back to the right. Kill all the droids. Go more to the right to free two more prisoners. For the last two, hop on the two nearby blocks, lift yourselves up, (like before) and kill the droid. A short cutscene will show a final terminal appearing. Use R2-D2 to open the door. Go through.
A cutscene will show a battle with three Droidekas. Anakin will go into a spaceship and kill all three.
