Death Star Attack
Recommended Ship: X-Wing
As soon as the level starts, take out the deflection tower. Make a 90 degree turn and take out the other one, as well as the small turret next to it. Continue on, and take out yet another, as well as the 2 small turrets near it. Go to the next one and take out 3 turrets. The next one has 1, and the last one in this line has 3. Make about a 100 degree turn to the left, and take out the 2 on your way. Then take out this tower and its 2 guarding turrets. Aim a bit to the right, and take out the final tower in this line and the 6 turrets around it. Make another 90 degree turn to the left, and youll be told theres 2 more to go. Take out the final 2 deflection towers and as many defending turrets as you can. If you hear base 1 say, "We're running out of time!" you may want
to consider restarting.
For the next section with the TIEs, it's pretty much pure skill. At the start make a 90 degree turn to the left, and dive to take down a gun on your way. You should see a 5 fighter squad. Since the TIEs behave randomly, I can't help you after that. But if theres a long distance between you and the next squad, feel free to take down guns on your way. You can also use 3 seeking torpedoes at your liesure. Use the 4th torpedo on the last fighter. As soon as you fire it, dive down and kill as many guns as you can before you switch to the trench.
At the start of the trench, close your S-foils until you come into range of the guns. You really need to move fast here, yet you also need to take down as many guns as possible. Never, ever hit the brakes. Hopefully youll take down about 3/4s of them. In fact, the only time you should brake is when the TIEs attack you. When Vader attacks, fire as many shots as you can into him. He should make 2 passes on you. When he approaches for the 3rd. time, don't bother to slow down. Close the S-Foils and move. Han should approach shortly and destroy him if you've kept your speed up. After Han attacks it should be a straightaway to the exhaust port. If its not, your in trouble. That leaves you 2 torpedoes to fire at the exhaust port, just in case you miss.
Imperial Academy Hiest
Recommended Craft: Y-Wing
In order to get the gold here, it is recommended you do this mission in the day, so you have the Y-Wing. If its not day, you can always set your Gamecube's clock to morning.
On the approach ionize every sensor, but try to keep your speed up. Once you get to the last sensor, take the canyon to your right. You'll appear in an imperial base. Fly around to every platform and drop 2 bombs on each - one on both sides. This will take down the parked fighters, making your job easier and earning kills. Do this for all 3 platforms, then move towards your objective. You'll appear in another base. Bomb all 3 platforms again. Finally head for your objective again and you'll be at the academy. If you've been here before you know theres lines of parked fighters. Laser about 4 rows of them. Save at least 2 rows on the left quadrant while approaching though - you can
destroy those with the shuttle while fleeing. Also, bomb all 8 guns. Four are around the tower, another 4 by the shuttle. Steal it, and laser the 2 remaining rows on your way out. Head to the objective, but use the rear gun sparingly. You need to keep accuracy high. In fact, if you think you'll make it without being destroyed, don't use it at all.
Battle of Endor
Recommended Craft: X-Wing, Naboo Starfighter
There isn't a whole lot to say about the first part of this level, since it's just one huge dogfight. Keep your wings in formation and immediatly turn around at the mission start to head for the fighters. Kill as many as you can. Eventually that annoying lady from the medical frigate will gripe at you. Send off your wings after the fighters. Dogfight until the TIE Bombers show up. Take out as many as you can on the first run, and follow up by taking out some more. Then just go back to dogfighting whoever you see. When Lando says the frigate isn't going to last much
longer, go kill the TIE Bombers.
On the second part, close your S-Foils (if you are the X-Wing) and head after the Star Destroyer. Keep your wings in formation. Wait until the large squadron of fighters passes under you, then tell your wings to go engage them. Open your S-Foils (if you are the X-Wing) when you get in range and make a run on the first generator. Don't slow down though. Fly over the generator to the back of the ship, get a fair distance away, and turn around. Hold in the brake and kill both generators. The Star Destroy is focused on everything else so probably won't even fire back. Dive straight down, then come up for the last generator. Swing back around to the bridge and destroy it.
Your shields probably aren't in the greatest of shape here, but your allowed one death. Head off to the second Star Destroyer and use the same strategy, or just ram the bridge kamakaze style right off if you still have that one life. When it goes down, you should have time to fight a couple of TIE Interceptor Squadrons before the mission ends. Use seeker torpedoes on them if you have any left. Also try to take out a few guns and turbolasers on the Star Destroyers if you can.
