There are many strategies for picking a particular character. Out of the 4 characters available to play, who do you prefer to use and why?

If I had to pick one, I'd go with Han simply for the modes completed. Just curious what the other opinions are.

R2...need them multipliers!

r2 Should be the best.....But for whatever reason my high scores are with leia or Han. I love this game btw. I have a comic premium and its staying forever. Dream theme and I LOVE the modes.

Tough call. I bounce between them and enjoy them all for different reasons. Han is great for a quick path to two of the planet multiballs. R2 for multiplier fun. Luke has a couple super awesome unique modes. Leia...well I'm not sure her advantage off the top of my head, but I did beat the Emperor with her the other night. I also love how the callouts, ball save videos, etc change depending on your choice. Just awesome programming. Dwight is by far my favorite programmer. GoT is my all time favorite code, but SW is pretty close behind. Can't wait to get my hands on a TMNT and it seems cut from the same cloth!

I seem to have my best scores with Han (6.3 bil PB so far), maybe those have just been by chance though. Gotta go with Han anyway though.

Btw, with Luke I believe one of the rulesheets I've read mentions Luke getting an add-a-ball ability once a ball. How does one lite and use this? The only add-a-ball I've found is just the standard available by hitting the Force targets during a MB. Is it just that it is easier to lite with Luke - so far it's felt that may be the case?

For huge scores you need R2-D2. Han is good for consistent high scores.

I'm a Han guy. I like going into multiballs quickly.

My best score is with Luke, but I like playing with all of them.

Wish Chewie was a playable character. Anybody know why he wasn’t chosen?

Quoted from pudluther:

Not sure why Chewie wasn't an option, I'm guessing adding selectable characters is too much for a code update. I would be great if that could be done.
We recently picked one up because my 8-year old kept asking for Star Wars. TBH, my first impressions looking at the playfield, it's pretty average. But then the code.....I never realized the coding for this game is sooooo good, it totally makes the game. Loving it so far.

Han definitely, more consistent and easier to chain the multiballs together and then go into the next big mode with post multiball multipliers that are set high . Ooh... and choose bonus held as much as you can for BIG bonus scores.

While Chewie would be a cool addition, I think it would have been difficult to make him unique from Han since they were almost always together. Part of the fun of the different characters in the game is that their required modes relate to scenes which they were in in the movies. Not sure how you'd separate Han and Chewie.

I’d rather them add Vader or Palpatine as a selectable character and play something from the dark side. Not realistic though as there are no inserts for such.

I’m just hoping for another update with some more variety to the ball drain video and dialogue maybe stuff unique to who your playing and some other good quotes from movies that are applicable.

The character I select depends on what my goals are. If I want to just get the biggest score I can, I'll be R2. His multipliers are wider and you only need to finish two modes to get into the Death Star and Endor multi-balls, which are huge. But with R2 it is VERY hard to beat the Emperor, as it is MUCH harder to get to Jedi Master because R2 doesn't have Jedi Training available as a plunge award.

If you want to beat the game, you need to be Luke or Leia.

so far I'm most surprised Leia only has one vote

#15 1 year ago

Luke is my favorite. It makes the game really feel like an adventure. Plus, 1 billion light saber duels are sexy!

The poll results are right in line with the #1 complaint on this game...too many video modes. Well, stop playing Han! Haha. I hardly ever see the video mode as Luke.

I just started using Luke, best results so far. New GC at 7B+. Boba Fett mission away from final
