Knowing who's who and who does what pays off dividends for everything you do in the game. Check out the list below for all the playable characters you'll be able to use in Angry Birds Star Wars 2.
Qui-Gon Jinn features a single swipe of a lightsaber. While not the most powerful, it is effective enough to slice through chains and wooden blocks with ease.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is strong with the Force. His ability features a single strong push directed by the user.
Yoda features a lightsaber spin attack, causing him to pinball around the level for several seconds. The ability must be activated manually before contact.
Jar Jar Binks can use his tongue to grab nearby objects and swing via his tongue. Aiming his tongue is done manually by the user, as is releasing his tongue upon a second tap/click.
Anakin Skywalker, Episode I (Podracer) - Anakin features a aloud racer, which can be directed in a relatively straight line toward a user-selected direction. Anakin himself will trail behind, swinging into blocks.
Captain Panaka carries a special laser blaster which fires a spray of three lasers at a time. He fires twice in quick succession, for a total of six lasers.
Padme Amidala features a tractor beam capable of pushing large objects. The direction of the beam is user-controlled with nearly-unlimited range.
Anakin, Episode II (Padawan) - Anakin now wields a basic, single-swipe lightsaber while he assumes his role as a Jedi Apprentice. He is not particularly powerful, but can still slice through wooden blocks cleanly.
Jedi Youngling - As is to be expected, the Blue Bird assumes the role of a Jedi Initiate. While Force-sensitive, Jedi Youngling can only attack by splitting into three Younglings.
Mace Windu wields a boomerang lightsaber capable of slicing through large quantities of chains and blocks. It has an extremely far range and is only destructible by permanent items, such as land.
Chewbacca - Our fantastically fuzzy friend Chewbacca is as massive as ever. Plow your way through any structure using his huge frame, in what we call an Earthquake Attack.
R2-D2 - Beep boop! Our friendly droid R2-D2 features his patented ability to shock any nearby enemies with electricity.
C-3PO - Invaluable in his friendship, partially because he is made of gold, C-3PO has the ability of breaking into fragments at your command. Each piece has capable to doing some damage to any block or enemy it touches.
Princess Leia, similar to Padme Amidala, features a tractor beam. However, Leia's beam will pull at objects instead of pushing them. Makes you wonder if the two gals are related...
Luke Skywalker (Pilot) - Our young hero from the original trilogy, Luke Skywalker wields a basic lightsaber capable of a single swipe.
Luke Skywalker (Endor) - As his Jedi training progresses, Luke Skywalker is now capable of two swipes with his lightsaber. I'm no mathematian, but that seems like double the power!
Luke (Jedi) - With his training complete courtesy of Master Yoda, the full Jedi Luke Skywalker now swipes his lightsaber an unprecedented three times in quick succession!
Han Solo wields a simple laser blaster. With it, he is capable of taking three quick shots wherever the user aims.
Darth Sidious, aka Emperor Palpatine, can conjure and direct lightning. It is particularly effective against metallic objects, such as chains. It has little effect on wood, however.
Jango Fett features a single missile that can be aimed wherever the user pleases. Be aware that both Jango and the missile are metallic, and thus heavily effected by magnets.
The Battle Droid carries a simple laser blaster capable of taking three quick shots wherever the user aims.
Darth Maul features his patented double-ended lightsaber, able to reduce most blocks to rubble in a single spin.
Count Dooku's boomerang lightsaber is an extremely strong weapon. It is indestructible unless it contacts a permanent structure such as the ground. It has exceptional range and is capable of detonating any TNT that stands in its path.
Droideka can tuck into a tight ball, resulting in a spin attack capable of great destruction. Similar to Yoda, Droideka can pinball around a level and topple many structures at once.
Zam Wesell has a grappling hook in her repertoire. This allows her to grab nearby objects and swing around them. The user must tap-to-aim the initial firing of the rope swing, then may tap again to release Zam.
General Grievous - Quite possibly the most powerful straight-attack character in the game, General Grievous features an unprecedented quadruple lightsaber attack! No blocks stand in the way of this four-pronged fury.
Anakin, Episode III (Sith Apprentice) - The Force is strong with Anakin as he falls to the Pork Side. His ability pulls nearby objects closer temporarily before launching them with great power in all directions.
Darth Vader has an ability that bears an uncanny resemblance to that of Anakin. We can just leave it at that, shall we?
Boba Fett - Perhaps the most beloved member of the Pork Side, Boba Fett features a double missile attack. Be aware that neither missile actually travels at the user-determined location. Rather, they travel approximately 10-15 degrees above and below that line.
The Biker Scout behaves similarly to Anakin with his Podracer. The Scout will follow behind the Speeder Bike, which can be redirected toward any other location on-screen. The Scout will tail behind, knocking down structures as he goes.
The TIE Fighter Pilot wields the most powerful blaster in the game. Capable of pulling the trigger twice in quick succession, each pull fires a double-dose of laser glory.
The Stormtrooper is the typical bad guy minion who is absolutely incapable of hitting anything it shoots at. A Stormtrooper can five shots, but the shots are pretty scattered. Nonetheless, this can be useful if aiming for five different targets, I suppose.
