4. General Missions

Revenge of the Empire - General Mission

The X-Wing Fighter is your default ship for this mission. Hit "A" and away we go...

Destroy the Imperial Transports.
There are about 8 of them. Use your targeting computer (Y Button) if you don't know what to shoot. They are the large Transport ships. Just use your lasers and alternate your speed to avoid enemy fire.

Destroy the Imperial Loader Shuttles.
There are 6 of these shuttles (looks like the T-16 Skyhopper from the Training Level). They are carrying a cargo box. If the Loader Shuttles land and drop off their cargo, find the cargo on the ground and blow them up. Basically, they are carrying AT-STs. Shoot them before they land if you can, though. Once you do that you need to defend the Rebel Transport from the ones that landed.

Defend the Rebel Transport.
On the island you'll see a large oval Transport. It's a good guy. You need to protect it by blowing up the transports and AT-STs (two legged walkers) that are shooting at the Transport.

Find the General.
You are now out of your ship and on foot. Follow your radar while shooting all of the Storm Troopers who get in your way. Just keep following your radar until you get to a room with a bunch of Storm Troopers. Kill them all and then the General will join you.

Escape with the General.
The General is now with you. Follow the radar until you get to another room full of Storm Troopers. Kill them all.


Tech Upgrade - Advanced Shields
In the first part of this level, Destroy Imperial Transports, the upgrade is actually inside one of the transports. As you fly foward from the beginning it's in the 4th or 5th transport you get to (depending on how you count). Allow the transports to land, then, fly through them. Yes, fly through them! Like I said, in the 4th or 5th one you get to there will be a small cone shaped object and the voice will say that you've picked up the upgrade. Now, you have to complete the mission. If you don't complete the mission, you'll have to get the tech upgrade again. You'll know you have this upgrade because when you start your next flying mission you'll see that you have a blue ring around your damage meter and your shields are stronger.

If you haven't read the "Gold Medal Strategies" section in the Introduction, do so. First, you have to be quick. On the first part, only use your lasers on the transports and make sure you are close to them before you start firing. I want you to save your Homing Proton Torpedos for the next part. On the next part, right when it begins, you'll see the 3 Imperial Tranport Shuttles. Target each one with a Proton Torpedo and let 'em rip. When you fire the 3 of them, don't wait around to see if they hit, peel off and go towards the other 3 Transports. If you can, take care of these Transports while they are in the air. Also, before you destroy the 6th and final Transport, target a TIE or two with your homing missiles. This will help to get your kills up because I can't tell you how many times I finished this level with 59 kills out of 60. Very frustrating. As far as being on foot, well, just kill everybody and run fast. Make sure that you have a lock-on (either a green auto lock or an L-Trigger red lock) before you shoot your blaster. Accuracy was a problem for me on this one. When you are in either of the two large hangars where there are a lot of enemies, try not to let anyone behind you. Take them out as you go forward, looking at your radar to make sure no red dots are behind you. I finished in 3:55 with 62 kills and a 67% accuracy.


Speeder Bike Pursuit - General Mission

Destroy all Biker Scouts.
Here, you get to replay the famous Endor scene from Return of the Jedi. Fun? Yes. Frustrating? Yes. You'll be running into a lot of trees, so get used to it. You'll get the hang of it soon, enough, though. Just stay on course and fly at a normal speed and use your lasers when you see a Biker Scout ahead of you. If you glance at the radar every once in a while, it helps by giving you a general direction that you'll be heading. For the enemy Speeder Bikes, let your lasers recharge so that you can get rapid fire going or just repeatedly mash on the A-Button like I did. Also, if a Bike Scout comes up along side you, you'll get the B-Button icon and you can kick him and hopefully push him into a tree. After about 10 Biker Scouts one of them will be a real pain. He'll swoop in and lock bikes with you. This is not cool. Just hang in there. You won't be able to do anything other than just try not to run into any trees. After a few seconds of this you'll get a cut scene of Luke bailing from his bike. When the action starts back up, get ready to hit the A-Button. The Bike Scout will be coming back by and you get to use your lightsaber to take him out. After that, mission over. On a side note, my eyes are currently crossed and I'm slightly dizzy.


Tech Upgrade - Homing Concussion Missiles
After a few minutes of flying and probably after about 5-6 enemies you'll enter a section of the forest where the large trees on either side of you are packed close together making it look like you're surrounded by a tree wall of sorts. When you recognize this area, slow down. Right after you get through it you'll be able to take a small path to your left. Hanging in the air a little ways down the path is this upgrade. Now your Concussion Missiles will lock-on! Hold down the B-Button to get a lock then release the button to fire. You can lock on to up to 6 targets at once making this a very powerful upgrade. You can still fire normal (non-homing missiles) by double tapping the B-Button.

Gold Medal Strategies

If you haven't read the "Gold Medal Strategies" section in the Introduction, do so. Time and accuracy will probably be your problems here. For time, well, I went through the entire level without boosting or braking just to see where that would put me. It put me at 4:11, 11 seconds over the limit. Not too bad though. So, boost occassionally, when you feel comfortable. You don't have to race through the entire level though. When it comes to accuracy, just be sure you have the enemy in your sights before letting out a succession of blasts. If you have him lined up right then one tap of the A-Button (about 5 rapid fire shots) will destroy him. The hardest part is actually staying alive. You're bound to run into a tree somewhere. However, you'll get lucky on one run and you'll do it. This one is more luck than skill, in my opinion. Don't laugh, but this one took me 2 hours and about 30 tries to get the gold. Stupid trees! I finished with a 3:29 time, 10 kills, and a 9% accuracy.


Triumph of the Rebellion - General Mission

Fight your way to the bunker before Han and Leia are overwhelmed.
Ah yes. You are now Chewy and you have manned an AT-ST. Don't forget that you have missiles (B-Button) and also don't forget about your Command Cross: the D-Pad. You can do the famous Ewok Log Roll, Log Swing, and Catapult. This helps to take out some of the other AT-STs if timed correctly. Save your missiles for when you have 3 or 4 enemy AT-STs to destroy at the same time. Otherwise, just follow your radar and never let up on your lasers. You'll get a cut scene when you're close to the generator.

Fight you way to the bunker's control room.
You are now on foot as Han Solo. Just keep using your blaster until you get to the control room. You'll know that you are there because you'll see an Orange Marker. Don't worry about the marker for now.

Plant the explosive charges.
Exit the control room and you'll see another Orange Marker. Go to it and use the C-Stick to plant an explosive. Now, go around the cat walk to the other side and do the same. Now, we have one more explosive to place. The third explosive is back in the control room itself...at the Orange Marker.

Escape from the bunker.
Now, you have to haul butt out of there. Just follow the guy that is in front of you and soon you'll be out. Yay! Ewok celebration! Credits roll. Game over...or is it?


Tech Upgrade - Homing Cluster Missiles
Go along the path until you get to the first set of Ewok Catapults. Behind the Catapults, in the forest/trees you'll find the upgrade. To be more specific, if you're behind the Catapults and the Catapults are tossing stones down the path, then the area you need to explore is directly behind you...in a straight line with the Catapults. You can now lock onto 6 targets at once on ships equipped with Cluster Missiles. To use them, hold down the B-Button until 6 targets are acquired and then release the button to fire your missiles. You can still fire regular (non-homing) missiles by double tapping the B-Button.

If you haven't read the "Gold Medal Strategies" section in the Introduction, do so. This one is pretty straight forward. Kills might be a problem, so take a little extra time and kill lots of guys on the ground. Speed really isn't too much of an issue. As long as you are pretty much moving the entire time you're in the AT-ST you should be fine. I did pause a few times to be more accurate when shooting the Storm Troopers on the ground. I finished this one in 5:07 with 89 kills and a 48% accuracy.
