How do I get started in LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy?
Your journey begins in a rather dubious (despite Han Solo's opinions to the contrary) watering-hole, the Mos Eisley Cantina. You will start off in control of Princess Leia along with Captain Antilles who is her constant companion. If you visit the Bar found in the centre of the room (directly behind you when you first arrive) and press the 'U' key the friendly barkeep will give you the following options:
Hints - Lets you buy gameplay hints to help you in your tasks
Characters - Here you can unlock extra characters as you progress through the game
Extras - These are expensive but highly useful 'cheats' that make your progress easier
Codes - If you are lucky enough to learn a secret code you can pass them to the barkeeper to unlock items
Story Clips - Here you can view all of the mini-movies or cutscenes you have watched in your journey so far
Episodes - If you head left from the bar you will come across the Episode IV lounge area. Each door opens a different chapter, you should start with Chapter One - 'Secret Plans'.
A quick guide to the controls can be found on the back of the manual.
