      Hello, and welcome to my Boss FAQ, and soon to be Walkthrough, of the
    SNES video game, Super Empire Strikes Back. I hope you enjoy, and send in
    any questions or comments to the e-mail at the top of the screen.
    **************************************************************************
    *Small note: Obviously I'm just making up the name of the bosses, for I  *
    *don't know their real names!                                            *

    Wednesday, November 21, 2000/Version 0.1:
     Started FAQ. Have a couple of bosses. I am only borrowing this game, but
    plan on buying it soon, for only $5! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this,
    because you requested it! Also... Don't expect a walkthrough anytime soon.

    Uh... I didn't forget about this FAQ... If someone would like to take over
    it for me, go ahead... I'll give you the whole thing, and it can be under
    your name and everything. BTW, I changed my name to Lans Bloodbane.

                                  2.  TECHNIQUES
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DOUBLE JUMP TECHNIQUE:
    All you do is jump in the air, and while in the air, press jump again.
    Simple, no?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SABER DOUBLE JUMP:
    Basicly, this is your main attack (for me at least) in the game.  Pull out
    your light saber, do a jump in any direction, and while in the air, jump
    again.  You will spin your sword around you, attacking anything in your
    path as long as you are in the air.  While doing this, you are nearly
    invincible.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SABER BLOCKING:
    To block using your light saber, hold down on the D-PAD and press the
    attack button. Sometimes this will reflect an attack from and enemy back
    at them.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CHUCKING BOMBS:
    Can only be done with Han Solo, collect some bombs and press the A button
    (default)to chuck away!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SPINNING REALLY REALLY FAST:
    Can only be done with Chewie. Press and hold the A Button (default) to
    spin really fast!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THE FORCE:
    Can only be done by Luke.  To use the force, you must first collect
    different power-ups (they are letters) found only on Dagobah. Then, press
    the Select button, and chose the force power you would like to use with
    R or L.  Then press X to use it, and X to cancel.
    
    *Note: With the Elevation Force Power-Up, you need to press and hold UP
    on the D-PAD for as long as you want to float around.  To stop, simply
    let go of UP.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SABER SWIPES:
    There are many different ways to swing your saber.  One way is just to
    press the attack button.  This is a simple under-hand half-sircle swing.
    Then there is an over-head swing, which takes a little bit more to pull
    off but it has a better range. Press and hold up on the D-Pad and press
    the attack button.  Then there is the "SABER DOUBLE JUMP" technique, and
    finally, if you press down and tap the attack button, you will get a great
    downward swipe, awesome for when you are on a taun-taun.

                     3. UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFICULTY RATING
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Okay, how I rate the bosses is based on an astrik (*) system.  Here's a
    run-down on each different rating.
    
    *=Easy
    **=Simple
    ***=Medium
    ****=Hard
    *****=You are gonna die a few times before conquering this boss
    ******=Near Impossible
    =*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
                             ~BOSS 1: Big Huge Ice Beast~
                                    ~DIFFICULTY: **~
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Basicly, he'll attack in one easy to predict patern.  Attack with his
    right hand, try and freeze you with a breath and attack with his left hand,
    repeat.  All you do is pull out your light saber and do what I call the
    "Double Jump Technique". Anyway, as soon as the battle starts, stay on the
    left side of the beast. When he does his freezing breath, double jump (with
    light saber in hand) from the left side of the screen to the right side of
    the screen.  Then, when he uses his frezzing breath again, just do the same
    thing over and over again untill he dies.

                        ~BOSS 2: Big Imperiral Probe Droid~
                                  ~DIFFICULTY: *~
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Take out your saber and keep using the Double Jump Technique, or if you
    have Plasma Blaster Power, (like me all the time) and blast it to pieces.
    =*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
                        ~BOSS 3: Huge Imperiral Probe Droid~
                                   ~DIFFICULTY: ***~
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This time around the Probe Droid actually does stuff!! There will be
    three platforms of ice, each which sink into the water.  Pull out your
    weapon of choice and start your attack.
    
    *With a Blaster of any kind, shoot at the Droid while it's submerged under
    water, then when it comes up, jump around to the back side of it and start
    blasting away. It will submerge again.  Repeat process untill it dies.
    
    *With a Light Saber, you can do various things.  I do believe you can
    defelct it's laser blasts back at it, hurting it.  Or you can "SABER
    DOUBLE JUMP" (hurting him in the process) when he emerges from the
    water to his back side and swipe away.
    
    **You can combine the two strategies by "SABER DOUBLE JUMPING" from one
    side to the other, pull out your Plasma Blaster, and fire away.
