I. Introduction [int01]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to my FAQ for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. This guide
contains a walkthrough for the very forgettable title based off the very
successful movie from the infamous Star Wars saga. It is very safe to say that
this game is the official game of the movie, given that the entire story is
merely that of the film, and it includes brief scenes from the movie. The game
itself was panned by critics, after a while, everyone just forgot about it.

I wrote this FAQ because at the time there were no other guides posted for it.
I am also a fan of the Star Wars series, though my knowledge of it is very
limited compared to others. Quite simply, I just wanted to help out GameFAQs
by chipping away at the "impossible" dream of every single game listed having
a guide for it. Here is to one day making that dream a reality. With all that
being said, it's on the FAQ itself!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. Story  [st02]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

There is unrest in the Galactic Senate. Several thousand solar systems have
declared their intentions to leave the Republic.

This seperatist movement, under the leadership of the mysterious Count Dooku,
has made it difficult for the limited number of Jedi Knights to mantain peace
and order in the galazy.

Senator Admidala, the former queen of Naboo, is returning to the Galactic
Senate to vote on the critical issue of creating an ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC to
assist the overwhelmed Jedi...

Taken from the game's opening crawl. Classic Star Wars stuff right there.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
III. Controls [cn03]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a basic run-down of what each button does in the game. Each character
you play is identical to the other one in terms of control scheme.

B button = Jump (Press R in air to do a flip, A to perform a kick)
A button = Action button, must use directional pad to perform actions
D-pad = Change direction character is facing, slash with Lightsaber, ducks
Select = No use
Start = Pause game
R = Blocks with Lightsaber
L = Uses Force Powers. Use with directional pad, Up yields Force Jump, Left
or Right yields Force Push (depending on what direction you are currently
facing). During a chase sequence if the player has picked up a shield generator
this will activiate a temporary shield around the vehicle/ship.


While playing levels which have you driving in a vehicle, the actions are more
or less identical. Except in some vehicles A and B will shoot projectiles.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
V. Walkthrough [faq05]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And here we are, the main meat and bones portion of the guide. Star Wars
Episode II: Attack of the Clones is a very straightforward platforming title.
There are two types of levels - standard "walk and slash" levels, and chase
levels where all you must do is wait for the time to expire. Those levels
severely limit you in terms of what you can do. So very often time this guide
may sound like "Walk and Kill for Dummies" but that is precisely what this game
is about. At the start of each level I will give you the in-game text that is
displayed, then the broad overall mission objective, then I will dive into the
walkthrough itself. Enjoy.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 1: Coruscant Rooftop [cr04]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Senator Padme Amidala's Naboo Royal Cruiser approaches Coruscant. On the
landing pad, an explosive device is intended to assassinate the Senator, but
instead kills her decoy."

"Following the failed assassination attempt, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin
Skywalker are assigned to protect Senator Padme Amidala"

"Later that evening, Anakin thwarts a second attempt on Padme's life. Obi-Wan
crashes through the window and grabs hold of the would-be assassin, a probe
droid."

Mission Objective: Make your way across the rooftops and into the hanger

This first part of the level is a very simplistic move-forward and kill all
that-you-see type deal. Just cut down all of the bigger droids as well as
the probe droids that come across your path. Deflect enemy fire to send their
laser shots back at them. This is a neat and effective trick that saves you
some effort and allows you to take out foes from afar. You will eventually
reach the second part of this stage.

Hop to the blue platform and take out the droids that will ambush you. Make
more series of jumps that will take you to a lower portion of the level. Use
the lift to make a quick leap to yet another blue platform. As you continue
forward you will be ambushed by four droids, take them out and keep moving.

Jump to a moving platform, and hastily leap to the next blue platform. This
is where things can get a little tricky. In fact, it is very possible to get
yourself stuck at a part of the level that sees you stranded without anywhere
to go. But to avoid this, make a giant jump down to yeah, another blue
platform. Hop on the platform moving up, and ride it all of the way up to the
highest point, then hop off and continue moving.

Slice and dice everything you come across. Jump from the moving platform that
will take you down and quickly keep moving, destroying the probe droids that
drop bombs at you, as well as everything else that you will come across.

You will soon come to the end of the level. You will know it is the end when
Anakin raises his Lightsaber in triumph.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 2: The Chase [tc08]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The probe droid is destroyed, sending Obi-Wan plummeting - but Anakin catches
him in his speeder."

"Obi-Wan takes the controls as Anakin jumps into Zam Wesell's speeder."

Mission Objective: Chase Zam's speeder and help Anakin force her to the streets
below.

Welcome to your first chase level sequence. The objective is simple - follow
the other vehicle until time runs out. There are shield pick-ups as well as
objects to dodge. After 100 seconds have passed, the level is over and victory
is yours. If you die and have at least one more life remaining you will simply
start from where you were at the moment you died. Simple stuff. You can
actually cling to the side of the "walls" and not take any damage, convenient.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 3: Downtown Coruscant [dc15]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Zam's speeder crashes into a crowded city street, sending Anakin flying. Zam
exits the crashed speeder and runs."

Mission Objective: Chase Zam Wessel and defeat her thugs and droids.

This level has you chasing down Zam Wessel through the streets of Coruscant.
All throughout the level she will appear in front of you and shoot. Simply
deflect her shots and take down the enemies that will come up to you, as well
as the several droids that will pop up. Pick up as many Force Power pickups and
health pickups as you can, you can never have too many of those.

As you progress further you will start to encounter larger groups of enemies
and Zam herself will begin to throw grenades at you as opposed to fired blaster
shots. Just roll with the punches (or Lightsaber slashes, if you will) and be
sure to try and kick or slash away any bombs that might get deployed by you.

After a while she will disappear and you will be left to dispatch her remaining
thugs.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 4: Kamino [ka16]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Before Zam can reveal any information, she is killed with a toxic dart, fired
by a mysterious rocket-man."

"In order to protect Padme, Anakin secretly escorts her to Naboo"

"Obi-Wan traces the saberdart to the cloning facilities on Kamino where he
learns about the clone army and meets Jango Fett."

Mission Objective: Defeat Jango's guards and collect three keys in order to
access the exterior landing platform before Jango and Boba escape.

Ohh, a small change of pace. As opposed to the typical arcade style hack n'
slash we get some item collecting to do! Don't worry though, it's not too hard.
Press "up" to enter some doors that you will come across in this level.
In the room with a view that resembles an ocean you'll have to make a series
of jumps to get to a giant green crate. Break it open with your Lightsaber
and claim a key. You will know you have it when a yellow symbol shows up in the
lower right hand corner of the screen.

A second key can be found by entering the third major door that you encounter
in the main hallway. You will pass a series of doors and encounter a slew of
Geonosians. Behind the last batch you will find another giant green crate.
Bust it open to claim another vital key. 

The first door in a set of three contains the last key you need. It is in
a green colored door in another giant green crate. Once you have obtained
all three keys find your way to the main hallway once again. And walk all of
the way to the end of this hallway. You will see a red door. With all three
keys you should be able to enter it. Do so immediately.

Now you have a small "boss fight" against Jango Fett. His son Boba will shoot
at you from their ship. Unfortunately there is not much you can do about
little Boba shooting at you. So take the fight to Jango. Knock him out of the
air and follow up with numerous Lightsaber slashes. If your timing is right,
he'll be finished well before you run out of health.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 5: Geonosis Asteroid Belt [gb23]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Using the homing device, Obi-Wan follows Jango Fett through hyperspace to
Geonosis."

Mission Objective: Piloting the Jedi starfighter, pursue Jango Fett through the
asteroid ring of Geonosis.


Another chase sequence. This time you have to evade asteroids as well as
firepower from Fett's ship. Fortunately you have blasters to help you out.
Shoot any asteroids that come your way. Pick up any extra shield and do your
best to evade Jango Fett's shots. The time to last is 99 seconds.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 6: Tusken Village [tv42]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"After surviving the encounter with Jango Fett, Obi-Wan follows him down to
the planet surface."

"Meanwhile, sensing that his mother is in danger, Anakin and Padme rush to her
aid in Tatooine."

"Anakin goes in search of his mother, Shmi."

"After racing across the deserts of Tatooine, Anakin finds the Tusken Village
where his mother is held captive."

Mission Objective: Fight your way through the savage Tusken Raiders.

Very very straightforward. Just keep moving and slicing through the hoardes
of Tusken Raiders that you encoutner...as well as their uh..beasts. You are
going to spend far too much time just hacking and slashing. 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 7: Paths of Geonosis [pg77]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Anakin finally locates his mother, but he is too late to save her..."

"Meanwhile, Obi-Wan sets off in search of answers in the dangerous planet of
Geonosis."

Mission Objective: Battle Geonosian warriors and find the secret base.

Make your way up the path, slashing at the flying creature and avoiding the
falling rocks as well as the pitfalls they fall into - as that guarantees
certain death. Jump ypur way up and across the level. The path is very linear
and you'll know when you have gone in the wrong direction.

You should reach a bone cave type structure. Make repeat jumps to the left,
all while ascending one level of the bone caves after another. The infinite
flying creatures and falling boulders may eventually take their toll on you,
so be careful. Once you reach the highest point in the level, Obi-Wan will
pose triumphantly!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 8: Geonosis Droid Factory [gf25]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Anakin and Padme receive a message from Obi-Wan asking for help on Geonosis."

"After relaying the message to the Jedi Council, Anakin and Padme race to Obi-
Wan's aid."

Mission Objective: Fight battle droids and Geonosian warriors as you maneuver
through the deadly factory.

Avoid the smashing columns of metal, if you get hit by them you'll be killed
instantly. Take out the droids as you move along the conveyer belt. You can
easily time when you should move and when you should halt. More flying enemies
will swarm you, but simply cut them down like you normally would. Keep pace
with the conveyer belt and the smashers, and you will be absolutely fine. Wait
for it..and yeah, victoy pose!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 9: Arena Battle [ab31]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"After surviving an attack by three deadly beasts, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padme
are trapped by Dooku's droids."

"Mace Windu leads one hundred Jedi into the arena to save Obi-Wan, Anakin, and
Padme. A giant battle ensues."

Mission Objective: Defeat Jango Fett and the droid army!

Yay, you get to play as Mace Windu! This level is very similar to the other
ones. All you have to do is cut through the endless swarm of droids and every
thing else. At the end of the level you face off against Jango Fett yet again.
Fortunately the "end" comes quick and Fett ambushes you soon after you start
to make your way through the level. This is probably the easiest boss fight
of the entire game - the infinite number of droids provides you some easy
health pick-ups if you need them. Neato. Slash at Jango and replenish your own
health as needed.

After you have depleted Jango's health, simply walk to the end of the level.
That's all she wrote.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 10: Dooku Takes Flight [dk01]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Anakin and Obi-Wan continue the battle outside the arena in a Republic
gunship."

Mission Objective: Prevent Count Dooku from escaping! Shoot his Geonosian
protectors in order to bring him down.

The last chase mission of the entire game. This one is identical to the other
two, except that it is in your best interests to shoot down Dooku's two escorts
that are on both sides of him. If you take them both down victory is instantly
yours, and you won't have to endure all 99 seconds of this level.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 11: Final Battle [fb12]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Anakin and Obi-Wan pursue Count Dooku to prevent him from escaping."

Mission Objective: Confront the evil Count Dooku. May the Force be with you!

This is an interesting fight. The first part sees you cutting through large
amounts of enemies, then fighting Count Dooku himself. Count Dooku will utilize
Force Push against you, so do the same to him. This also lets you get a few
hits in while he takes time to recover. After you deplete his health as Obi-Wan
he will Force Push you out of the fight, bringing Anakin in the battle. Do the
same thing as before, Force Push him if you can, and strike him repeatedly.

During the final stage of the fight, just block his strikes with your Light-
saber and time your strikes well. That will be all she wrote for Count Dooku.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level 12: End Game [eg00]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Try as they might, the young Jedi's skills are no match for the powerful and
experienced Count Dooku."

"Before Obi-Wan and Anakin meet their end, Master Yoda enters the hanger and
confronts the evil Dooku."

"Dooku unleashes a barrage of Force Lightning, revealing to Yoda that he has
become a Sith Lord."

"While truly a formidable foe, Dooku is forced to retreat by Yoda's mastery of
the Force."

"Later on Coruscant, Count Dooku meets with Darth Sidious to report that he was
successful...everything is going according to plan."

"At the Jedi Temple, Yoda proclaims, "Victory? Victory, you say? Master Obi-Wan
, not a victory. The shroud of the dark side has fallen. Begun, this Clone War
has!""

"And in a secret ceremony on Naboo, Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala are
married."

Hooray, the end of the game! I hope this guide was at least a little helpful
to you, the reader. May the Force be with you.

VI. Frequently Asked Questions [fqaJ]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some basic queries about the game that I am going to answer here, some
of it is information which I did not include in the general walkthrough or just
assumed you already knew. But you know what they say about "assume".

Q: How many characters can you play as in this game?
A: Three. Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and for one level, Mace Windu.

Q: How many different modes of play are there?
A: There is only the single game mode present in this game. And there are two
types of levels = standard platform levels, and chasing levels where all you
basically do is survive while the clock at the top of the screen runs out.

Q: What is the difference between the difficulty modes?
A: You take more damage from enemies, and health recovers are weakened.

Q: What is with the bar at the bottom of the screen?
A: That bar is the measure of how much Force Powers you have left. You can
replenish it by picking up icons that look like the Xbox 360 logo (heh). Once
it is completely full enemies will start to drop heart pickups which refill
health. So in some ways it is actually in your best interest to not use Force
powers so that you will have some breathing room.

Q: What Force Powers are avaiable for use in this game?
A: Force Jump, and the ever-classic Force Push.
