Playing as a Jedi hero/villain
It may be very easy to kill people as a hero, but there are some special moves and techniques other than the standard saber combos. You can do extremely deadly and long combinations of lightsaber strikes against enemies by Force Running/Sprinting into a group of them and pressing Attack while still sprinting. This releases a group of moves that are much deadlier against groups of opponents. This is useful when clearing hallways or passages. You can also do lightsaber combos while Force Jumping by pressing Attack in mid-air. This is useful for killing Jet Troopers as a Jedi or taking a out lightly armored vehicles or any vehicle low on heath that is higher up. You can use the "lightsaber lock" to block enemy fire coming directly at you. Make sure to face your enemies as best as possible to block their fire, and use the crosshair that appears temporarily in this mode to better aim your ranged attacks (Force, lightsaber throw). Instead of running around the map randomly trying to kill anyone you see, find a group of opponents, then activate lightsaber lock to block all their shots as you Force Run at them and then unleash a deadly combo while you are in their midst. Also, some heroes are better than others. Even though you have a limited choice for each map, try to choose a team that has a better hero or villain. Some Jedis are much faster and lethal in terms of close combat and lightsaber skill. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul, Luke, Pilot Luke, Ki-Adi Mundi, Ayala, Yoda, and Mace Windu are recommended if you like using a lightsaber and running around. Other heroes and villains are much slower with a lightsaber and are not as good at fast or close combat, but are slightly more powerful than the others and have a better understanding of the Force. These characters include Darth Vader (Force Choke), "The Emperor" Palpatine (Sith Lightning), and Count Dooku. Use a character that best fits your playing style.
