I’m on Chrome Dome Down on The Last Jedi but can’t beat Phasma. She’s standing there shooting in the second phase of the battle and the blue shield is down. I’m shooting her with the cannon but nothing happens. The video walkthroughs I’ve watched suggest this is where I should be able to shoot her. Is this a bug?

 

I've had a fair few instances recently of enemies just flat out not taking damage. Ranged frm normal enemies to bosses, very irritating.

In about an hour's co-op play this morning we had one full crash of the Xbox, one hang on loading a new area, one error loading save and one instance where the camera stayed fixed on a lift even though the action (and our characters) were off to the left somewhere. 

 

Having said that, the pod race is quite good fun, which I definitely wasn't expecting.

Had a weird bug in the episode 7 level where you have to kill 30 stormtroopers:

 

Spoiler

You can pull a lever to blast two of them out in the snow but this didn't kill them for some reason, they just remained chilling outside the base where I couldn't get to them. It took me a while to even spot them. In the end I managed to rescue the situation by blowing them up with a grenade explosion through the wall.

 

Still, had some genuine laugh-out-loud moments playing episode 2 and 3 today, and it remains a very entertaining game all round.

 

Episode 2 joke spoiler:

 

Spoiler

"Your nightmares have been troubling you. Did they feature a lot of sand?" had me absolutely howling.

I think there is a sly nod at the end of Phantom Menace to the fan theory that Jar jar is actually the real hidden Sith Lord  🤣

 

 

Spoiler

And during The Rise of Skywalker!

 

There are loads of little nods and winks to all the Star Wars memes and fan theories. I also like all the little running jokes, like Luke being obsessed with milk.

 

I finished rattling through the story yesterday so now I'm taking my time, going planet by planet finding all the things I ran straight past first time. I think I've finally got the hang of the map and menus but they're ludicrously cumbersome. But it's all just so much fun.

Had a quick go at lunchtime and I've either hit a bug or there's still something I don't understand about how this game works.

 

I've been trying to 100% Kashyyk in free play (the hub not the story mode) and I've got everything apart from one character (Lego head icon on the pause screen). The trouble is the map doesn't show me where this character is. It DOES tell me there's a person on the beach I still haven't had a chat with (light blue dot on the map directly in front of the mini scout walker next to your ship) but there's nobody there. So is this missing person the mystery missing character, or is the character somewhere else in the level, and if the latter, how do you find them?

Was just stuck on Hoth or Cold as my character was up a signal tower and could only climb up or down two rungs. Son had to snipe me from across the map to kill me and luckily I respawned somewhere sensible.

Won't be the person on the beach most likely. Might be worth buying the rumors left for Kashyyk, as some chars/bricks are dependent on you having done other, hubs and/or prerequisite missions before they appear. 

 

EG, Kamino was the first one I tried to 100% because it's in its own system. I got everything but 1 vehicle and 1 brick or sommat. When I looked at the rumors I had left, it said I I was still missing 2 missions on Kamino BUT they wouldn't appear until I'd visited Yavin IV and done a mission on another planet that would then unlock it. It's odd but worth checking that way as it's not immediately obvious at all what you need. 

 

I've also had the same thing happen in Space hubs where I'm missing a vehicle or sommat. Directed to a missions elsewhere, done that and come back and there's suddenly a race marker clear as day on the space hub.

Almost at 34% completion! After 40 hours!

 

This game is MASSIVE.

 

About the same as me then lol. I thought I'd burn through a decent chunk one evening, played for about 4-5 hours and didn't even finish off one planet lol. Nice chill game to visit every few days and saunter round whatever planet I fancy collecting stuff.

Had to hold off on diving into this until the weekend, as my 7 year old had given up games for lent and we've been looking forward to playing this together since he was 5 😂

 

 

I'm so happy with the approach they've taken to this.  It's been made with such an incredible love for all of the Skywalker saga.  It perfectly encapsulates that weird thing Star Wars does where it takes itself seriously, but is also aware of how ludicrous it is, all at once.

 

And for young kids, the amount of content involved really does make this seem like an MMO to them.  There's so much to do I can see my kids returning to this game over and over again for a long time.

 

It's a shame that they've only done character packs for the DLC, and not got some Rogue One/Solo/Mando content to play through, but with the saga itself complete on the big screen, this seems as good a time as any to do a 'definitive' game like this for that content, and then hopefully release future games covering events not included in this one.

This was exactly it. It turns out there's something I need to do on another planet that will unlock a character here. It's just one of many things that could be clearer about the map & menus but at least I know it's working properly.

And me, although I've "only" played about 36 hours. I must be rushing it.

Ha, sounds like my last session! It is indeed a great game for just pottering around. Super chill fun times.
 

I’ve still got a few episodes to play, plus however many puzzles, bricks and side missions remain. Horizon Forbidden West’s sequel will be out and discounted by the time I finally finish (and hopefully pop the platinum)

My son & I 100%ed Batman: Beyond Gotham and Lego Avengers over the past year or so, game time around 100 hours each. This will probably take longer by the looks of it, but should be loads of fun pottering round doing stuff and inflicting the occasional sneaky Force choke. We just need to figure out what is going on in all those menus!

Took me AGES to work out how character selection works in free play. 
 

Turns out you basically set up a full team in the menus, one character for each class (so one Jedi, one protocol droid, one scavenger etc - whoever your faves are). You obviously need at least one character in a class to access it. 
 

Then you switch between the members of your team using the d-pad! Simple. But I don’t think the game ever explains this. It’s actually a very elegant solution and makes brick hunting a joy.

Collected 500 Kyber bricks!

 

Repeating myself, but this game is almost astonishingly huge. Finished Eps VIII and IX, which unlocked more planets, and another however many truckloads of collectibles.

 

Started clearing a few spots this afternoon but need to finish Empire and Return of the Jedi to unlock certain characters and missions. Will do those next and then start the mop-up in earnest.
 

The back-tracking hasn’t really felt like a chore yet because just when I’m starting to feel a bit of a grind, a silly pun or goofy moment will have me grinning at the sheer creativity of it all.

 

PS - saying that, one minor bugbear, the notifications icons in menus don’t stay read after being hovered over. More of an OCD aggravation than anything off-putting.

Saw the Deluxe Edition was back up at Argos so bought a copy.

 

No mention it was a digital copy apart from if you clicked to reveal About This Product, which was otherwise not visible.

 

Getting a refund out of them is proving to be hell as the standard patter is “no refunds on digital codes.” It even says the game will be sent to my address on the confirmation email.

 

Just got this as I was typing. Grrrrr.

Encountered my first bug after around 16 hours of gameplay!

 

Was on the Starkiller Base level in Episode VII and there's a section where you have to kill 30 First Order Stormtroopers.  It bugged out at 28, with 2 of them inaccessible behind a locked door, so had to restart the level.  Worked fine after that.

 

There's definitely a drop in quality with the story levels between the original trilogy and the rest so I'm looking forward to getting all the stories out of the way so I can just explore all the hidden areas in Free Play.

So I gave up trying to get a refund and activated my code. Sent off a complaint to Trading Standards though.

 

Anyway, been playing this a bit now. Never played a Lego game before. Am I missing something? Hopped about a bit, chopped some droids, collected tens of thousands of Lego pieces. All with zero effort. Basically just walking trom one point to another activating the story, with some vaguely interactive bits. 
 

Should I be doing anything else?? Like building stuff?

This game is pretty sprawling by usual Lego game standards. There are story levels and these are contained across loads of hubs each with their own extra puzzles and side missions.
 

Most of these extras will become doable once you’ve completed story levels and unlocked different characters (in Lego games there are classes of characters, each with different abilities)

 

In terms of story levels, the ones for the original trilogy are the most traditional. Personally I’d save them until last as they’re the most rounded but as you’ve never played a Lego game maybe start with A New Hope to get a feel for things. Also, as with the extras in hubs, each story level contains extras to unlock. The story levels  can be replayed in ‘free play’ with different characters to unlock these secrets.

 

In essence, these games are huge collectathons, with loads of unlockables. To get going pick a story level, follow the path and start unlocking.

 

Also, everything in the game is tongue-in-cheek, and is meant to be light-hearted. Pretty much every major plot point in the saga is giving a Lego makeover, and is consistently funny with it. Hopefully you’ll soon get into it :)

Personally, having rinsed Lego Batman 3 and the Lego Marvel games over the past couple of years I’m finding the story missions very underwhelming. The collectathon and just general mucking about in coop is where it’s at though.

The story missions are much more fun when you go back to them in free play mode, there's a surprising amount of hidden stuff in most of the levels that you just don't see first time through.

 

I still can't get over how big this game is though. I spent two evenings rinsing Canto Bight of collectibles, both inside and outside the casino area, as well as clearing the space zone around the planet - and my total completed went up by about 1%.
