When using a gamepad, how do I make my character run?
If you are moving using an analog stick on your gamepad, you may find that your character will only walk slowly, rather than run, even when you push the stick as far as possible in the direction you wish to move.
To fix this, you should enable the Stick Range Boost option in the Control Setup menu. To do so, ensure that your gamepad is plugged in before starting LEGO® Star Wars™: The Force Awakens, then follow the steps below:
From the Main Menu, select Options.
Select Control Configuration.
The Control Setup menu will appear. Set Stick Range Boost to Enabled.
